| p.1 #20 · Being asked to shoot a wedding when you aren't a wedding photographer |
Im going to be blunt. You are still toying with the option of possibly doing the wedding. You said you told them no, but now you are second guessing.
I'm going to be blunt back. I didn't ask anyone if I should or shouldn't shoot this wedding. Also, there's some seriously messed up reading comprehension taking place. I said that I said no, and then when asked again I said I would think about it. I'm thinking about it. I don't feel obligated to do it. I like the idea of gaining new experience. I don't know why you guys keep talking to me like I'm talking in some weird code that you all have figured out. There's nothing hidden in my message. I'm thinking about the idea, because that's what I said I'm doing. I'm thinking about it. I didn't say yes, I said I would think about it. Is that clear yet?
This is why TTL, Robin, and many others, including myself feel like we can group you in that set of people who Kurtis talked about earlier. Accept it or not, you obviously can't just say no and walk away- you ARE one of those people. Grow a pair, say no, and be done with it.
Well, Robin and Joel already clarified that they didn't group me into that set of people. And why should they? Nothing I said even remotely enters into that passive aggressive mindset.
Trust me, it's not worth it since this is your wife's boss. We are being harsh because in the end, if anything goes wrong, your wife may end up dealing with and hearing about it. Perhaps if you were a wedding pro it would be a different story, but you aren't, so this is not a good situation to be in at all. Walk away.
I'm not concerned about who it is.
