People Praise This Photographer For Honesty After He Breaks The Worst News To The Newlyweds As Their Wedding Photographer

Recently, a professional photographer named Justin Gummow from southern California shared a honest video on his TikTok channel that won the hearts of the internet.

“So the worst thing that could happen to a photographer when shooting a wedding happened to me,” Gummow said in a video that amassed a whopping 17 million views. He continued telling the viewers how his card got corrupted when transferring his photos and he realized he’d lost all the photos.

Gummow explained how he faced the fact of breaking the news to the newlyweds, as well as handling this whole situation with incredible persistence and unmatched professionalism.

Who in their right mind as a professional photographer has a camera with only one memory card slot? Or a camera that isn't capable of uploading to the cloud?

There are s**t ton of photographers (like my father and X more I know irl) that prefer older camera models over modern ones. And whole lot of these cameras have only one card slot and there's hence also no way to back up them via cloud. So yeah might have been this photographer's case too but who knows

We never got ours because the place shut down months after the wedding. I realize now that pictures and a pricey gown and cake aren't worth remembering as long as you get a good husband. I got screwed there too 🤣

An ounce of prevention would have been a lot more professional than trying to put out the fire after the fact. Hire a 2nd (and 3rd) shooter.
