What Happens When An Influencer Asks A Photography Duo To Work For Free

An interesting incident made the rounds on meme websites most recently when the agent of a social media influencer got in touch with London based wedding photography team Betrothed & Co.

The initial e-mail, rife with arrogance, read like this:

The PR person, Melissa, was quite baffled about the reaction she received in response to an offer she deemed impossible to pass up.

Would you say ‘yes’ to an inquiry like that? Do you think it’s cool to shoot an influencer wedding for the promise of social media reach and referrals?
