My cousin just wont get the hint.... (update)

..that I DONT SHOOT WEDDINGS!!. My mom got an email from his mother asking me to shoot their wedding (not to mention they never invited us to begin with, not that I planned to go anyways. They arent close relatives even though his mother is my 1st cousin). They asked me how much I charge to shoot weddings a while ago and I told them $3000 to show up and $750 for each 20 page album. They thought I'd do it for free. I figured that would be the end of it. Nope.

Now his mommy is trying to get into the act. Heres a remark that just made me laugh. "We found a guy on craislist that does weddings, but he charges $500. Since we are relatives I dont know why Rob wont take pictures for free at the wedding.". Yes they are cheapskates. Got to send her an email telling her I dont do weddings period, especially for free. If she thinks $500 is expensive, then try seeing what REAL wedding photogs charge. I did 2 weddings (friends) before and after the last one, that was it. Freaking MIL issue from BOTH sides. "I want this kind of shot", "I dont like the way they are standing", "I want copies also", "Will the pictures be ready by friday?" (this was back when I still used film), etc.... I dont see how people who do weddings for a living stand it.

Mom, $500 is a steal. I charge $3,000 regardless if we are related or not.

There are a lot of lawsuits with wedding photographers. Either the couple hired some amateur to take pictures. And the pictures really sucked. Or the couple get cheap and don't want to pay the photographer.


good you got the balls to say no. A lot of people want free service.

That is a steal. We paid that and only because the guy worked for a company and was starting his own and needed pictures to start with to put on his website. Other than that we would have paid $3000-5000.00.
He did a great job and we were very happy with the pictures.

Tell your mom, that you have enough naked pictures of the bride already, and that your not interested.


I can see how shooting a wedding would become a PITA, no wonder they charge so much.

Show up at the wedding with a disposable camera, take a few shots and drop it on the head table, spend the rest of the evening getting drunk at the bar. I think it's a good plan.

Right before dropping the camera on the head table, rub it on your junk right in front of them

Oh gee its gets better.

Sent her an email last night telling her I dont do weddings period. Got this reply when I got home tonight.

Well can we borrow your camera then?



Just sent her this reply.

Uh, fuck no. Unless you want to give me $10,000 cash for a deposit, no. End of discussion.

Funny how when my dad, YOUR UNCLE, had his heart attack, you never even came to the hospital nor even called like everyother one of his nieces and nephews did. Or when he had his stroke last year. Nothing from you or you kids. I know you knew about both since OUR AUNT called everyone. The only time you contact anyone in the family is when you want something for FREE. But if anyone else needs help you convienently are "out of town". Like when Uncle Howard bought a new car, you came out and asked if he could give you his old car free. Now you are trying to get free shit out of me?

You ever wondered why no one in the family really wants to deal with you anymore?


Yep I'm pissed. She's one of the few on my dads side who is a complete fucktard. At least the idiots on my moms side have a reason, they are just looney toons. This bitch is nothing more than a spoiled brat who expects everything handed to her and her kids. She screwed her ex in court and SHE was the one cheating.
