    HELL NO! That guy is an ASS and something should be done/said. I cannot believe that somebody would ask that question. F*** YOU BUDDY is what I would tell him. Get a freakin' life. The guy is probably fat! lol That totally insults me and I didn't even get the email. That photographer is totally disrespectful in all aspects and that's not right!

How did you hear about us studio i do studioido wedding photography bryce jenkinson How many photographers are you currently shopping?”
      You have every right to be upset about this. I cannot believe he has the balls to even send an email like that! And he probably thinks there is nothing wrong with it!

      Take some time to compose a great reply -- and be sure to tell him his idiocy is posted on a forum where everyone can see.

            steph OMG WTF?!?! what an ASSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

            he could have just said he wasn't interested. what a rude facker! i am as insulted by the questions about your budget as i am by the weight comments! i would definitely tell him that his response will be posted on this forum and that reaction you've gotten from many fellow brides is that he was extremely rude and unprofessional. i would thank him for being so honest and blunt in his reply, because it let you know that he is not the type of individual you would ever want to associate with, let alone on your most important wedding day. also, let him know the facts: a great photographer could create stunning images no matter what the budget of the wedding, no matter what the couple looks like! the reality is that NOT every bride is a size 2 with a platinum-wedding budget. he would actually probably get MORE business by having more realistic-looking women in his portfolio, as women are more likely to be able to relate and picture what their own wedding could look like that way.

                I just made a post about this in the Bride Referal section. I will email him back this afternoon. My FI was furious! He told me that if I didn't do something about it he would! LOL.

                I didn't think I was crazy, I appreciate the support ladies! You're all the best! *big hugs*

                  As a photographer, I understand wanting to build a great portfolio, but I've never even considered it before a shoot. I handle the editing and if I shoot a "WOW" photo then I look at it as something for a portfolio shot. This guy is an idiot!! No worries, if he continues that attitude, he'll be out of work in no time!

                  That said, I'd reply that I have an unlimited budget and send him a photo of some random model and string him along for a while. :)
                  I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png

                      OMFG!!!! That guy is a douche bag!!!! I can NOT believe he would ask those things, that is so unprofessional, and RUDE! Both budget and looks questions. Also, what would a budget have to do with how beautiful a beach looks like?!? I agree, tell him a great photographer shoud be able to get stunning photos no matter the background. I would definetly not want someone like him with me on my wedding day! He sounds like a high snob.

                      I say we all tell him what a lame, rude, unprofessional jerk he is on his "contact me" section of his website!!!!
