normally couples will spend a great deal on their gown, dinner etc etc but they forgotten the important of having a good photographer to cover the wedding. They thought it is just shooting and anyone can do it.
For me, my friends know that i am a photographer, but i will never help them take. i rather have less business than lost a friend due to any miss shots . . . but so far so good, there are more shots than miss shots.
Esp when you are working together.
