a spreadsheet with six dozen shots she wants
zoiks. God bless you, sir.
i specifically stated that if they truly wanted to have a bunch of specific shots that's what you'd want a professional for, and they said that isn't their expectation.
Look, I hate to be a downer, but this is what literally each and every single bride getting "free" wedding photography from a (sometimes soon-to-be-former) friend says.
It is absolutely and unequivocally a false statement.
Principally, it is the bride deceiving herself, and as a result, unintentionally deceiving you.
They want good photos. They actually do want the images on this list. You don't for a moment think they took the time to create a list of (SIX DOZEN) things they want you to produce, gave that list to you, and then changed their minds about wanting those things, do you?
They do hope you'll make that list happen. They will do what they believe (incorrectly) is necessary to empower you to do that, such as assigning a member of the family to "round up" people -- an assignment every single so-assigned family member in human history has utterly failed to fulfill, because weddings turn out to be quite busy affairs, much to every bridal party member's surprise, and family members and friends wander off to the cocktail hour in search of cocktails, without notifying said assigned family member of their departure.
I have nothing to gain from urging you to get someone to 1) help you, or 2) do this in your place so you can keep your friends as friends and also enjoy a nice party, so take that for whatever it's worth to you.
