As you will recall, I was contemplating with giving up wedding photography. Not that I could not do it, there was just too much for one person to cover. Wedding photography is details, details, details. These are one of the few days in a woman’s life that capturing the day in all its glory, will matter years from that day. It is important to document guests, flowers, table settings, venue, and most importantly the blushing bride. I won’t accept to photograph just anyone’s wedding. There is a sit down with both the bride and groom. This isn’t to discriminate, but determine if we get the vision together and the syle they want for their memories.
In a business of entertainment and art, it is difficult to know who truly has your best interests at heart. You meet someone through networking who appears to have their stuff together because their portfolio looks good, could be a predator. You see someone in passing and you want to introduce yourself for a potential model, but they probably see you as someone trying to hit on them, especially if they have not been a model nor ever thought about it. There is no real equation that allows two people to come together and collaborate on beautiful art.
