I have been shooting wedding events for almost eight years now and there is something I have noticed in the Nigerian wedding atmosphere that I don't like.

It is the act of denying photographers and cinematographers any form of food and refreshments at events. I honestly do not know why, but, it is happening more frequently and nobody is taking about it.

Nobody should say I like food o, although, I like food, but nobody should say it. 😁

Let me go a bit further. Stay with me.

Every vendor gets food without much hassles, but, caterers draw the line when it comes to photographers. Why? Because of embarrassment, most photographers don't even bother to ask for food again. We just order food online, but, what of cases of remote areas where ordering of food is not really feasible? Tomorrow is another Saturday and another photographer colleague of mine will be embarrassed by caterers, I just know it.

There are even instances when photographers are shouted at or even ordered to wash plates all because of hot jollof rice. 😁

I personally feel this matter between photographers and food vendors cannot be settled here on earth.

My sympathy to photographers who suffer such from event vendors. My suggestion is that, this photographers should bring their own food when coming to the event grin

I can say it confidently that, photographers and cinematographers do the most job at weddings. We start working immediately the bride wakes up and we only wind up when the party is over!!! No human can function at such a capacity without food.

And oh, there was a wedding I photographed some months ago and they served one of the most delicious jollof rice I have ever perceived. You know those type of food that the aroma throws you off balance, walahi, food no reach me. 😂 E pain me o!! But, on a serious note, what is our offense? Let's make peace. 😁

I am really not in the mood to write today. But, my question remains, why do food vendors always assume we are on dry fast?

I don't know what, but I am always ery shy to ask for food at events.


Infact, I begin to leave the moment food is coming in...

I stopped going to weddings because of food....

I will just get my gift and send it to the celebrant....

No be pride, na just respect....

I see people struggling to collect food and will hoard many plates and be accusing the events planners how they mismanaged the event.... While going home with different souvenirs.

Exactly. Some people go home with food wrapped in all those black and ungodly nylon bags. It makes them feel smarter than the people who didn't get food. We need to do better generally as people.
