I'm getting married later this year.(Yah me) and I'm having trouble finding somebody that I want to do my own wedding. I've been a member here longer then I had a camera and frequently read a lot of different post on a variety of subjects. so, I feel I know more about the topic then the average Joe people contract with. I feel this is getting to be a curse now.
I just want a dvd of slightly edited digital prints back, though I notice most people here upsell for actually prints w/ no digital copy given. I understand it's a business that I, myself want to get into at some point. Torn over this
I thought of asking for Raws to practice my own skill with, but after getting involved with the RAW thread here, realized this is either VERY taboo or very expensive.
Talking about money, I know this is a very "you get what you pay for" area of business. I and my Fi and doing it ourselves and we aren't made of money and I do have to look at the price a bit.I've seen the threads where people don't really like people the stick only to a price.
A lot of the websites I have looked at, their pics look good. Everyone seems to know what they are doing and it makes it hard to choose.If I could clone myself to shoot my own wedding I could. My Best Man is the next person I would want to do this. Good news is I am meeting up with a Member from the forum for the job and trying to sit under as a second shooter for practice work.
How did everyone else handle this?
