Chinese couples are faking their own weddings using Photoshop.

The cost of wedding photography is rising in China. So many couples are instead paying specialized companies to use cell phone pictures, plus Photoshop, to fake elaborate wedding photos.

The services copy-and-paste in exotic locations, fancy wedding dresses and expensive bouquets of flowers for as little as $50.

It's almost romantic haha but you have to do what you have to do. 
 
I guess cheaper then a regular wedding
 
DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE!
 
The Petapixel picture's a joke, no? The source photo cited on the site shows the couple standing on the Brooklyn shore under the Manhattan Bridge!
 
Bad #Photoshop work....People are too small, sun light is at the wrong angle. If your gonna fake it, make it real looking. I think cell phones have apps that will do a better job. I fake photos for my customers daily at their request but this is crazy bad.
 
+S Powers , it's intentionally bad because it's a joke on the news story. Note my comment above and follow the main post's links. :-)
 
Begs the question: "Does a fake photo = a fake marriage?"
 
YOU'D BE SURPRISED MAN, WHAT WOMEN CAN GET AWAY WITH SINCE THEY DON'T LIVE BY LOGIC. THEY LIVE BY VALUE, AND UNTIL YOU DO ALWAYS THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FOUL YOU WITHOUT YOU EVEN KNOWING IT!
 
That's what makes all the romantic comedies what they are. The humor is in the "absence of logic!" Nothing makes sense, so how does one the chase if their is no logic? By KNOWING WHAT IS OF "MOST VALUE!" LOVE! And you know you have won whether the other side wants to admit defeat or not is when you automatically synchronize with little to no effort.

If the news report is true, that's a little sad. Too poor to be afford a decent wedding photo -- that's pretty poor.
 
They really need to enlist the help of photoshop users to clean it up a little. A little sad really.
 
In case you don't know, the picture is just for humor. On the serious side, it's a very clever idea. That's a win win situation. I feel for people who have to go this route because they can't afford it. If time allows and I'm in the mood, I don't mind giving them a free photoshoot.
 
guys, One picture can't reflect a country or a society,so welcome to China and to understand this country with your own eyes.
 
No need to sit in the same pose for 10 shots that are ok... put yourself anywhere you want... Classic... it's like the end of the shoelace thing... You never knew you needed or wanted it til you saw it.. hahah Well Done
 
Chinese people have a very common psychology of showing off for fortune. There's an old saying "better prostitution than poverty". They chase and worship power and money inwardly, though scorn at them outwardly.
It's no wonder that some will fake such photos and upload to SNS to show they had a wonderful honeymoon trip or a great wedding cinematography. They buy fake luxury goods, cheap copy(Shanzai) of brands, living a fake life to show to others.
That's the real hypocrisy of most Chinese young people in consuming.
 
Smile, laugh - so typical chinese mentality.
 
Anyway, I don't think they are willing to pay for much as $50. ¥50 is enough!.
