This seems creepy to me.... and I'm a guy!
Posted: Jun 17, 2010 9:34 PM

I just received this as a private message on brides.com (the identifying information has been hidden):

I would like to be considered for your wedding photography. We would
have to work out a few details, since I am not local to you. However,
we could easily arrange a boudoir session prior to your wedding but on
location.
My website and contact information are below and I am looking forward
to hearing from you.
Thanks, A Guy,
A****** Photography

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't something like this scream "danger" to a woman?

It would to me. I hope everyone takes notice of this and take every precaution when dealing with people on the internet.

Dear Howard,

Yech.

You might want to edit the phone number out.

WAAAY Creepy.

Please forward the message to the Moderator and tell her what username they were using. Ugh.

I did edit the number out. 555-1212 is the old information number before 411 and still works.

I didn't see a PM from you with this username. This is definitely against forum policy and this user will be banned. Either PM here or email me at contact@brides.com

If anyone receives solicitations or weird/creepy/threatening PMs from forum members PLEASE let me know. I'll ban those users ASAP.

Really, Howard...you mean you DON'T want boudoir photos from some random guy on the internet? :)

I agree that it's pretty creepy, but I find it pretty darn amusing that this creep sent his message to Howard. As in the one man who regularly posts here. As in the one photographer who regularly posts here. And totally not a bride. Really, this creep couldn't have chosen a worse victim if he had tried. Epic fail!

Did anyone else get this message, or just Howard? If not, then I think Howard has a creepy fan club! :)

Ladies,

"Really, Howard...you mean you DON'T want boudoir photos from some random guy on the internet? :) "

Oh, I dunno. Boudoir photos of Howard could be interesting.

(Think pink, Howard.)
