Is anyone annoyed (both photogs and guests) at people coming to weddings half naked? The ladies in mini-skirts, bare backs, low cut tops exposing half their mammaries?

I mean it's a wedding not the beach or the club! Why not be respectful and dress formally. None of it at Jewish or Muslim or Hindu weddings ifcourse; it's mostly Russians, Irish, Italian, Latinos. And the younger the couple, the more skin you get from guests.
It's like women go there to have a contest who can show off more.

Why do you care? Each culture, and each family, may have it's own beliefs and traditions. As the photog, you capture the moment as it is and not make judgements or change it into something fitting you belief structure.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I cant imagine why it matters to you. Its the couple's day, they invite those people and apparently they approve.

I see absolutely no issue with this ;)

I was thinking the same, but tried to answer seriously. Since you cracked it open here is my take. If there is someone good looking enough that I can add a glamour shot to the wedding, then thats a bonus. The sorts of weddings I do are generally populated with mundane folks and "church lady" types.

You do realize that some women put a lot of money into their mammary glands and like to show
them off at times. I was born and spent the first thirty years of my life in NYC and I have to tell you
met a ton of hot Jewish babes who knew how to show off their knockers.

I'm hired by the bride and groom so it does not matter what the guests wear or don't wear.

I did a couple weddings for a strippers, and the female guest list was full of the the rest of the city's strippers. One was... an interesting wedding. In an annoying, irritating way TBH. The other was fine. Strange how that goes.

Maybe you are working in the wrong genre. Sounds like weddings aren't for you if how guests dress annoys you.

So are you saying that it's mostly women of the Christian faith that dress provocatively? Or just Europeans? I'm not quite sure if this is a race-based or religious-based argument.
