So last year on one of our best wedding was this UB. He was videoing (on Hi-8 1913 or so Camera) and his girlfriend was "taking care" of photo part.
She was (for UB) quite ok, except that she was using some olympus DSLR which makes about 1000 preflashes each time it takes photo, probably even for autofocusing. It was very annoying, lots of nice dance shots lost, but whatever.
Issue was with him, he was literally all the time around the couple everytime they did anything meaningful or when he seen i run somewhere to get a shot, he followed, stand in my shot and started recording. He even moved me aside at one point and on my (at that time very soft) request to GTFO he said, "so what, you get few photos lost, who cares"?
Two days ago they wrote me inquiry about their wedding. He was very excited, talked about how they loved photos from the couple, and how they "looked around anywhere but not like what they see" (they live about 300km away).
My answer was: I am very sorry UB and UBette, having still fresh memories of how you handled me and how you both behaved on the x&x's wedding I do not want to shoot your wedding. Wish you luck.
And yes, i did it for my own good feel. I know it makes no business sense and is plain stupid. My usual answer would be $defaultprice + 5000€, but i was down since last evening and this made my mood better.
There is boiling pot of oil waiting for all UBs, keep your mind high and stay happy shooting our couples.
