Pittsburgh photographer Josh Defleas was photographing a wedding for his girlfriend at a hotel in Florida when the wedding photographer approached Defle as he was working on the wedding photo.
Defle and his girlfriend were getting ready to leave for the reception when the photographer approached him.
Deflays girlfriend told CBC News the photographer was very rude to her and told her to “stop being so sensitive.”
She says the photographer told her, “You’re just trying to take my picture.”
Defle says she then walked away from the photographer.
The photographer then took pictures of her and Defle’s date at the reception.
Deflaes girlfriend, who asked not to be identified, told CBC the photographer also told her he would not photograph the couple.
“I told him I didn’t want to be photographed because I felt I was not going to get any pictures.
I was thinking, I have to be honest with myself.
I don’t want him to hurt me or hurt anyone,” she said.
Defles girlfriend says the wedding photography photographer didn’t stop when she walked away.
“It was an incredibly disrespectful and rude moment, and that’s just not OK.
He was just going to go and take a picture of his girlfriend and then leave,” she added.
Deflee says he was surprised to learn the photographer would be allowed to photograph his girlfriend for his wedding.
“We have been together for about a year now, and we have a relationship.
And so it was just shocking that he would go out and photograph my girlfriend, but he wasn’t supposed to do that,” he said.
“And I said, ‘OK, well I will just go and do that.
He will leave.’
And I was just so disappointed, because I had my picture taken for my girlfriend.
I thought it was a fantastic thing to do.”
The couple have been engaged for six years.
“That’s something I really wish was allowed.
We are very close, and I have always known that we would always have a happy relationship,” he added.
