blah blah blah, fuckers.
This person has a ton of aliases!!! I think I’ve got them all. For the most part the websites are clean – the only images used are the ones that are part of the WIX package. The Facebook is a different story though. There’s a well known person they stole an image of and I find it hilarious in an ironic way.
Unrelated to this submission, I am having a bit of a medical issue and will be having surgery in a week so in the next few weeks I may not be posting as much or at all depending how I feel. Some thieves may not get busted and I apologize! I also didn’t delve as deep as I could to find some sources and I apologize. Just not feeling so swell today.
Starting with the website, these are images that are WIX provided so there is no original source.
Generally I don’t feature companies here because honestly, it happens so often. When a business uses an image without permission your best bet is to contact a lawyer and follow the legal channels. I’m featuring this particular company because I’m trying to source the images and since I’m doing all of this work I may as well make a post while I am at it.
This is going to have a bit of a different layout due to sourcing of the images, they are everywhere throughout their social media platforms so I’m going to do what I can with sourcing. As with the other posts, the image on the left is from Vimi, the image on the right is from the original source. However the image I’m showing from Vimi may not be the only place the image is used.
I’ve been in contact with most of the photographers and none have used this service nor did they give this company permission to use their images.

This website I am pretty sure was built on a Wix platform because many of the images you’ll see here have been featured on this site before as people have been known to keep the image placeholders that come with the wix pages. What’s interesting is how much they’ve edited these images.
I see this time and time again… a photographer using someone else’s images in a genre they are looking to expand into. Here we have a photographer who is looking to get into weddings and posted a few images from weddings she claims to have photographed in Florida. She didn’t.
