    I have no idea where they came up with the money to pay me, but the buffet and cake were made by the family, and the flowers were all plastic. No One showed up. Blew my mind. Shot shallow.
    Here ya go:

    Best reception I ever had was a second wedding. The couple had two houses and two sets of funiture. They asked everyone to bring good to the reception in lieu of presents. What a mess I think they had to send the food to the homeless shelter in the end there was so much of it.

    Great people though.

    Nice shots by the way. Do they actually buy shots of the shoes?

    Ps I love it....[​IMG]

    I only did this because I think it was a test.

    Always fooled me as well. I had huge order from little wedding because as one mom told me we don't do this kind of thing often. Everybody wants copies of the pictures. Oh well.

    nice job by the way... so was it a test

    Hey, finally a couple with their priorities straight. Usually the wedding costs $10,000 to $50,000 and they are tight about spending $1000-$2000 for the photography.

    Love the first shot. I think the DOF really makes it work.

    It is odd that people, in your area in particular went cheap with anything. Having lived in the North Dallas area for 5 years, it seems that everyone goes over the top with everything.

    You know what they say, Every things big in Texas

    Well there you go... these people must have been reading the recent thread about cheap photography, so they skimped on everything else to have the money to spend on great photo's.

    I took a look at the album now i see what you are talking about. different approach from what I have always done. Not that there is anything wrong with that at all.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with it. The details are key.

    Hey at least they have great pictures now :)
    I really like no. 1, do you remember what aperture you where shooting?
    and are those shoes in style??? they remind me of elf shoes :lol: pretty bride though.

    My sister did the wedding in 3 months deal and went the cheap route 9k on a alabama wedding and thought she got a deal hiring a photographer for $350....nothing but an eccentric lady shooting an old 35mm pentax, with built in flash, and a cheap point and shoot digital, just a line em up and shoot "and inside the dark church at that " she didn't even mail her the negatives, just like 30 4x6's. and she didn't even stay for the reception as planned because she has another wedding THAT DAY !! But I guess its like they say you get what you pay for lol.
