Quoting Cheryle [TOG]:" that's true. Communication is very important as the shoot goes on. I prepare the stuff ahead of time ... [snip!] ... more comfortable going into a shoot with a plan and having it written down but I'm always open to changing it as we go along."

I respect that! Hey you know I have nothing but love for you, Cheryle :)

lol I wasn't thinking you had said anything against me Brandi. I was just explaining a bit more how I do things. I never have time to write out a proper reply so I usually only do little blurps that don't fully explain anything.



I just wanted to point out that I agree with you. Being open and going with the flow with the client is actually the number one thing. I write my cheat sheet because I just feel unprepared without it and it does help me prepare myself mentally for the shoot because it forces me to take some time and get in the mood for that client.



:) (I got nothing but love for you too:wink: ;-))

I also once shot a shoot in small jpg instead of RAW and one time forgot to take a picture of the flower bouquet for a civil service bridal pair portrait shoot.



On each cheat sheet before a shoot, I now write in big "RAW" so I always remember to check (as if I would ever forget again) and for bridal pairs, I always write "BOUQUET" lol When I do crazy mistakes like that I get so paranoid that I will do them again, I need to write it down to calm me down. lol

its an odd job...



I have these odd, personalized, one of a kind lures my cousin wanted me to photograph. I've done the best I can with them, under my best lighting conditions, and he says they need to be lighter. Plus, the background needs to be cleaned up in all the pictures

Alright. So i think I have come to the decision, that I will not be doing any more weddings. I have 4 or 5 booked for the next year, and I will not be taking anymore.



I'm going to be asking a few local photographers, if they would mind if i gave all clients asking about weddings, their information instead.



Weddings just aren't my thing.
I don't enjoy them. they're stressful, and too much boring editing. and i can't get creative with them like i love.



soooo yeah, just thought i'd share.



I don't know if I should announce this on my page or not... what do you think?



I don't want the people who have already booked their wedding with me, feel bad about me not wanting to do weddings, or make them feel like i'm going to hate shooting their wedding. >.< lol, so i don't think i'll post it publicly, just to whomever sends me an email inquiry.

well, tell me how much work it was when you are done, and we'll see. :) But thank you! I can't make any better lighting circumstances with my knowledge and skill level. I'm hoping the improvements can be made in PS. If not, oh well, he has to find someone else. :D



Thank you for trying!

I don't think there is anything wrong with announcing it; just do it in a careful way. I hope to make that announcement too. I'm so done doing them. They are tiring, they keep me away from my kiddo and yes the editing kills. My plan, when I DO get there, is to say 'I have treasured the weddings I've been able to capture, but at this point in my life I feel like I want to focus on other areas of photography such as (blah blah). I will be photographing a few more weddings that I've already got on the books; but from this time forward, I will not be accepting anymore wedding clients." That's the short version.
