In case you cannot see the post above, the photographer Chung Siew Goh, wrote, or pseudo-explained via his Facebook page:

I am the photographer on that day.....

Acouple long 10hrs hard work..for this couple

Edit 900 plus photo for them they use less than 20 pic to URGE not SATISFY wanted to refund cash paid ..but they already collected those photos NOW put up in media to show the whole world and spoil our Reputation which no REASON which not Fair to us..

We'll parse that for you and make it into English:

I was the photographer for that day. I spent 10 hours of hard work taking photos for the couple and edited 900-plus photos for them. Instead, they used less than 20 pictures to inform the public they are not satisfied with the finished product and want a refund. They have collected the photos and put it on social media for the whole world to see and spoil my reputation which is not fair to me as the photographer and bridal studio.

At first glance, his other photos which the couple didn't initially highlight weren't all that bad (however, this is not an endorsement that they are not not bad):




Reactions from the public are currently split down the middle, with some wondering if there was really cherry-picking involved to show the really lousy shots or all these photos in general are really CMI (Cannot Make It):






However, some of the queries are valid, such as: Why did the photographer even send the couple the really bad shots in the first place? Is it even physically possible to edit 900 photos? Why would anyone need so many photos in the first place?

And you know what would be really funny and besides the point?

This whole thing was actually a guerrilla marketing campaign by the bridal studio and photographer.

But we're getting a little bit ahead of ourselves now, aren't we?
