what did they message you for?

I haven’t received anything like that, but I did receive a message from another user, saying they are photographers and would LOVE to shoot my wedding for free, just the basic travel incidentals to be covered. I looked at the website they provided, and they had nice pics, but their packages were listed as starting at $2800… so WHY are they offering to do my wedding for free… and then the kicker. I am in TOronto, Ontario Canada. They are in North Carolina…. umm… NO.

@JrzyGurl:  Did you report the user?  I have never heard of this.

I got a message from a poster who called me a bitch…and I am not sure why.  So I ignored it.  Who cares?  People are dumb.

@Baroness_Meg:  I too would love an expenses paid trip to Toronto, but I’ve never tried to pretend to shoot wedding pictures to get one 🙂

@Baroness_Meg:  I know those photags and I used them. They messaged me out of the blue as well but I checked them out and booked them.  So while their methods are nonconventional their work is awesome and affordable. They were likely just wanted to travel to Canada and were willing to shot your wedding at cost to do so. They traveled out of state for me at no cost just for my 2hr intimate ceremony.

I enjoy crap like this. I wish more rude people would PM me. Oh well. Just report it to the mods and they’ll likely banhammer the person.

There have been weird hacked messages recently. Don’t take any of it personally, it’s just trolls and hackers and weirdos who aren’t real Bees.

@JrzyGurl:  I think you post a message to the site operators like this bee did:

@Baroness_Meg:  I had the same people message me and my wedding is in New Zealand, I could get the best photographer and videographer in NZ for what their travel costs would be.

@Baroness_Meg:  I got the same offer for free photographers….right after I paid over $5k for mine. Oh Murphy’s Law. 

Interesting premise but it made me think, can’t they just back out if they want? Get a paying gig in NC for that day and bail on me?
