Bride-To-Be Accuses Photographer Of Fat-Shaming Her In Photos, But Photographer Has A Story Of Her Own

A bride-to-be claims she and her fiance got a lot more from their wedding photographer than they have bargained for. And not in a good way, either. Everything started when Katie Liepold turned to Facebook to hire a photographer for her May wedding. After receiving about 20 responses, the couple picked Tower Photography in Medina which offered an engagement shoot to go along with two hours of coverage at the reception for $600. Including a free humiliating experience.

“Didn’t really need the engagement session, but it was in the package so we did it,” Liepold told 5 News Cleveland. The shoot with photographer Linda Silvestri seemed to have went well. “We laughed, we talked, we joked, we shared stories.”

When the couple got the images back, however, they noticed something was off. “This isn’t exactly what I thought I was going to get,” said Liepold. “She actually photoshopped one picture of us skinnier.” A side-by-side comparison of two images clearly reveals a dramatic change. “She probably took like 30 pounds off each of us.”

“That wasn’t asked for, and I just felt like that was really hurtful and my pictures weren’t good enough to be left alone.” Silvestri responded by telling Liepold she could cancel the contract. According to the bride-to-be, it wasn’t the end of the story. She claims that Silvestri left a hurtful rant on a Facebook page called Northeast Ohio Wedding Professionals Only. It started with “and people have wondered why I have scaled back my photography business.” “A whole big rant about how just that week she had a photo shoot with two morbidly obese individuals,” said Liepold. The post, which has been deleted, continued, “it is extremely difficult to get Pinterest worthy lovey-dovey pictures when people can’t even get their heads together.”

Silvestri refunded Liepold but kept the $150 deposit for spending two hours taking their engagement photos. “I didn’t pay her $150 to have her make fun of me on a site,” said Liepold.

Furious, people believe the photographer had no right to photoshop the images without the couple’s permission
