Embarrassing photo, how to tell the bride...

Tony Cabrera , May 05, 2005; 03:54 p.m.

I did a wedding a couple of weeks ago. There were several images where the groom dips the bride with really nice backgrounds of the skyline (in Chicago). So I'm almost positive the bride will be looking for these photos.

So the problem is, her boobs kept popping out everytime he dipped her. And of course, this we didn't notice until we saw the photos on the monitor. Do I just play dumb and say I don't have any to save her from an embarrassing moment. If not, how do I break it to her?

Give her the pictures. Just make sure she doesn't find them somewhere on the I-net.

You better make damn sure they get all of the prints and thenegs to. If you shot digital scrub them from your computer. off to do a little retouching if they want it. This is somethign yous hould have caught.

But don't play dumb, she probably remembers the moment very clearly and lying to a client in circumstances like this is the worst policy. if you hide them and if she other people a tthe party remember you taking the shots you'll have to dig yourself out of a hole.

Well let me re-phrase that. Not "hide"... delete is more like it...

And it's really hard to catch a nipple popping out through a viewfinder when it's a quick dip. I have other things to worry about like exposure, I don't exactly look out for things like this to occur.

I'll just give her the files and let her do what she wants with it.

It this some slippage or total busting out? If it's slippage, then it could be quick work with the clone tool.

"Is" not "It" is the first word.

Give her the photos, just leave them out of any proof album. I'm sure the bride and her groom are familiar with the subject matter. As has been noted, just make sure no one else sees the photos and make sure they aren't left on a computer.

A few years ago, I shot a wedding image of a particularly slutty bridesmaid getting out of a limo. What I didn't notice until I got the proof back was that the bridemaid wasn't wearing panties and I got a dead on, fairly clinical view of her most private parts. I left the image out of the proof album, handed it to the bride in an envelop and we never spoke of the image again.

I'd put it in the category of slipage. But digitally fixing it makes the dress look awkward because she's stretched out so it makes the dress and her upper body look a lot longer if I cover it up. The proportions just don't look right.

Carl Miller , May 05, 2005; 04:35 p.m.

Just so long as she doesn't get it made into a Christmas card and sends it to everyone she knows : )

I agree- give her the photos out of the proof book. As soon as you don't she'll call you asking where they are. She might think it's funny???
