1 date, 6 month engagement for us and married 30 years now. We've told our children not to follow our example of dating, of course.

You've got to have some shots of that!

Actually I did not take any. Besides concern for my safety and that of my equipment, the situation was tense and chaotic and so I stepped out in the lobby to see what the resolution would be. Thought what the heck go back in and take a few shots which was when the hall management put and end to it.


Best, Bruce

I'll vouch for the other end of the spectrum...

I dated my wife for five weeks before we got engaged. Married a year later and we just celebrated our 16th anniversary...

I've had couples breaking up weeks after the wedding.. thats why I charge 100% of my price tag before the wedding!!!!!!!! hahaha

But yeah, I kinda know when couples will break up soon..

Had this couple on the e-photoshoot that I told them "lets give a little kiss for the picture" and she was going to kiss him, and he told me "Who? me?" .... I said laughing "no, me!!!!! " hahaha

It is sad to see couples break up any time, but when you take so many pictures of the wedding, everyone smiling, etc., it's really disappointing. I'm not sure any of the couples I've shot are separated. I don't try to judge. Most of the time, they are friends, so I know their story. But for just regular customers, you never know.

Just heard from a groom from a wedding several months back. They are having issues and I felt really bad. They were a fun couple. She left a few days ago.

That's a shame.. but as I read this, my mind wondered to: Why did you hear from the groom? If my marriage were about to break up, it really wouldn't occur to me that I should let the photographer know.

I hope you have been paid and he wasn't calling to say that they won't be needing those pictures after all! Did he want his money back or was he just calling everyone associated with the wedding to let them know?

wildest one for me was meeting B&G with his mom to book their photographer...
mom was picking up the tab, but the bride insisted that the money go through her... you could really tell that the mom didn't like her future dil, and didn't trust her with that payment (and probably didn't trust her with anything)

within hours of mom paying me in full for a wedding 8-ish months away, the bride was contacting me asking for anything over the deposit refunded back to her, and she would re-pay this portion come the wedding... I of course declined (I had mom sign the contract, as she was paying), and that lead to more craziness (read: unconventional offers) from this lady... I eventually forwarded all those emails and details to the mother that had made the payment, offered her a full refund (including deposit) if for some reason the wedding didn't go ahead as planned... within a couple of weeks, it was off...

I have been waiting for a few months to hear from them about approving their album. He called to ask me to finish up the album and send it to her parents house. He wants her to see it and hopes it will remind her of their day.
I was paid before the wedding.
