    The only wedding pics that were even vaguely interesting are the one put together from disposable cameras left on the tables and collected later.

    My BIL had no money for a pro, so he asked me. First go round for me. I tried to prepare but quickly realized I was in way over my head. That shit is really hard. They had about 5 pretty good shots.

    You pissing over an overpriced photo shoot where you’ll get 3000 photos and hang two up for a few years, then throw them away?

    Convince the wimmin folk to concentrate on the important things like love and shit like that.
    Nobody looks at those pictures after 2 years have gone by anyway.

    Any of you that have a desk job and don't have a wedding picture of you and the Mrs on it are missing free points.

    I agree, that work from Buckwild is amazing. I just sent the link to my daughter. If nothing else, she may recommend him to one of her many friends

    So I learned the original photog was booked a year or two ago when she lived here in S. Cal. Now the photographer lives in the midwest. So I'm sure that made her decision to bail much easier. Initially my daughter asked what kind of discount they were going to provide after this big change. The photog came back saying well, since I'm not traveling you are going to save on all my travel expense....bla, bla, bla and my daughter said, actually I booked you when you lived out here, there was no travel expense to be charged as per the contract.

    Since this original photog will still be editing all the pic's and doing whatever magic they do, my daughter decided to not push for a discount. That's probably the right move and I'm glad I wasn't involved in the conversations. I would have probably made a couple comments about it and pushed for something, which could have easily bit us in the butt later with crappy editing. I'm just so used to customers grinding me for every excuse in the world, so it probably puts me into that mindset more easily.

    BigBird blah

    she doesn't visit me at my desk, so if she doesn't see it, does it still count....falling tree in the forest and all that.

    Co-workers and gossip. Oh and with rare exceptions they show sometimes. Even to duck in a grab you at lunch. Yes there is exceptions (no one can visit me) but you could always do the "I think this would be awesome on the desk... what frame do you think"

    I think the photog is using the family emergency as an excuse to not come out, not the real reason. Lots of times, a day or two break from a "long term emergency" would be welcome. I think she just doesn't want to travel and do it.

    we hired a wedding photographer who has a network of people and will contract the job out if she can't make it to someone she trusts. then our original photog will be the one editing photos in case she can't be the one shooting still.
