    sharkattack I didn't choose the Thug Life; it chose me.

    Get a recommendation from your first choice photographer. She wants/needs to be with her husband as he’s dealing with his mother’s illness. Have a heart and cut her some slack. She might be a great photographer, but there’s got to be someone who’s just as/almost as good.

    Hey guys thank you. They found another photog to back up the previous backup.

    Fortunately my daughter is now taking the good attitude of just roll with it what can you do. When I posted early she was very upset, I’m just happy they found someone and she is handling it well.

    I told her it will be a funny story to tell years down the road.

    Good luck man. I have a friend who’s an amazing well paid photographer but I don’t think he does weddings. Good luck

    Donde esta? California? I have people in South Texas but I doubt that helps you. Buy a shitload of the disposable cameras, you’ll have to deal with a lot of “DaveK’s junk pics” but I promise there will be some diamonds in the rough.

    Just give Tyler a camera and tell him that's his new job for the day.

    He has a high fallutin' day job. Though I agree he does awesome photos. From that pool of friends I have two more that are super great photographers. If I ever got hitched I think I could get one of them......probably they would come just to verify I was not lying and try to talk her out of it :crackup:

    Drop Bwhip a PM though as he is likely to far/unavailable but has kids in CA I think who might know someone.

    Oh I also have dog racing friends who I might be able to con that do great work also (south not CA though so to far).

    I’m not sure how much that price is I just know the bar budget for 5 hours is 7k. They offer to cut that by giving full bar for 3-4 hours and charge us for each drink at the end for the final hour or two. My daughter said her friends are drinkers and will be using Uber, so she didn’t think that was a good financial gamble for me. LOLOLOL

    Thanks for thinking of me, but yes, I'm pretty far away (Boise). Although I've shot several weddings for friends, I don't need that kind of stress. :D Best wishes to the OP with the wedding and Plan B photographer!

    How has no one recommended reaching out to the one and only Buckwild?!?!?!?

    https://www.kevinmaurice.com/ K-Mo knows what he is doing. I'm sure his travel costs aren't totally insane!

    Oh, the brother is serious. He was getting so good that he quit his real job years ago to do this.

    I met Buck once at Road Atlanta years ago. I had no idea he was this talented. If you speak with him tell him, Damn...just Damn. I am very impressed. He has a great eye for images.
