"10 great wedding photo ideas for all photographers" ?

Who needs 10 ? The SINGLE best "great wedding photo idea
for all photographers"
is to excuse yourself by saying "Sorry,
but I was planning on scheduling a root canal for that date."

Everybody knows dentists don't work on weekends .....

My sentiments exactly. It's amazing how many people think I want to shoot their weddings because I have photo equipment. My standard reply is " My price is $20,000 for 8 hours. Haven't had anyone take me up on it yet.

My situation was a step beyond just HAVING photo equipment.
I had an actual photo business, and the occasional client using
me for commercial work would ask about a wedding coming up
in his world.

Well, you can't thumb your nose at clients no matter how much
you despise the "Bridal Industry". So, I would inquire as to the
nature of the wedding. Fortune smiled on me. In every instance
it turned out to be a second marriage, simple weddings with no
more than about 20 guests, and coverage could be journalistic
rather than "Bridal Industry Fantasy", and acoarst I accepted all
3 or 4 of those jobs ... didn't come up all that often.

I notice in various Camel subforums that wedding shooters get
quite vociferous about gear manufacturers who do fail to meet
their "needs", for instance the lack of dual card slots seems to
be considered criminal by wedding shooters. And I realize how
their concern about such things does make sense. But there's
an attitude expressed, more or less that "gear thaz insufficient
for weddings is, by definition, less than 3rd rate". I find that to
be really obnoxious cuz I don't even consider wedding shooting
to be "photography". I think of wedding shooting as of one of
the "Bridal Industry Trades", churning out cookie cutter records
of cookie cutter weddings. I absolutely acknowledge that they
work hard, under pressure, and need reliable gear. And it's not
every one of them that spouts The Attitude. But I still find it to
be ridiculous how they believe they're the lobbyists who ought
to most influence the development of of new gear. The entire
"photo industry" could tank, leaving weddings, news reporting,
fashion, PR, etc etc all to be done by "crowd outsourcing", via
smart phones ... and if that should ever happen it will present
no problem whatsoever It's the vision of the crowd, by the
crowd, to the crowd, for the crowd. Too perfect.

BTW, if anyone agreed to pay me $20,000 for a wedding you
can bet your ass I'd accept ... and I'd subcontract the whole
thing to those hard working $5000 bridal specialists that I do
not consider to be "photographers". [Many prolly actually are
photographers in their off hours.]

My hat's off to the Wedding Shooters. I don't want any part of it at all. If they can stomach it all the power to them.
I made a decision years ago that I would not do anymore fee based photography especially weddings.
Since then I've shot two for very personal and good friends but warned them in advance that if anyone asked my fee they were to tell them "you don't want to know"!

Not poking fun at you ... really NOT ... but you
might be the only one who has even looked at
them. The opening post is pure spam, a noob's
first [prolly only, ever] post, accompanied by a
sorry-assed sacharine sample image ? Thaz the
kinda thing you can recognize at first glance as
spam without needing to click the link

What did you expect with a SPAM post. Did you catch the link at the bottom about having them do your modifications for you, for a price of course.

I never even read the article. I too had a photo business. I did one wedding as a freebie. Never had any complaints. I can't say I liked doing it. It was too busy and there was too much going on.

My top 10 tips for wedding photography are:
1. I have a court appointment as a witness in a drugs trial that day.
2. Hey, I'm getting my divorce that day.
3. I've already booked an escort for the day so I'll be a little busy.
4. I'm sorry - that's my weekend at the monastic bondage event.
5. Aww.... I don't want to see my last conquest getting married.
6. I pawned my camera to buy some crystal meth.
7. Jimmy borrowed my camera. I expect it back any year now.
8. I'm starring in a porn shoot that day.
9. My GPS quit so I don't know how to get there.
10. I've been bad. They won't let me drive anywhere but from home to work and back.
