Any Excuse to Repost This Series





I don't usually do weddings because I don't have the equipment, skill, desire, or nerve. Mostly nerve. When I have done weddings it's been for friends who I am very comfortable screwing over with bad pictures so there is no pressure and they usually come out nicely.

I was recently asked to do a wedding for a STRANGER who is only a RELATIVE of a FRIEND and I tried to talk them out of it by showing them The Thing of the Moment and a Kodak Album of one of these weddings. They still agreed. So then I told them about my camera which I have made out of an Quaker Oatmeal Box and a transistor radio. They still agreed. FINALLY I call the Groom, JUST TO MAKE SURE and he says, 'Well, until Aunt Linda mentioned you we weren't planning on having anyone."

That is competition I am comfortable going up against.

  4. can i steal that tagline for my own wedding photo experiences?

    my favorite so far has been people suggesting that i not be the official photog, since it's close fam & it's more fun not to be, but that i definitely "bring my camera" & "take some pictures" like that's the most novel idea in the world.

    as though they could stop me.
