Day 46

Day 46

Today started off pretty well.  Niki was going to a wedding today, and invited me along to shoot pictures.  Apparently, the family couldn’t afford a photographer, and Niki offered to see if I was willing to take the pictures.  As a matter of fact, I was.  With my interview at the portrait studio coming up tomorrow, I figured the experience would be good for me.  So, I offered to shoot the wedding for whatever they could pay.  I think things turned out pretty well.

After that though, things went downhill.  Some sad words were spoken, and some feelings hurt.  I didn’t know what to do with myself, so I reached out to my friend Marianna.  I ended up spending a few hours talking with her at her house.  It seems I called her at the perfect time though.  She’s headed out of town tomorrow for a week, and asked if I would house sit and watch her dog while they were gone.

Perfect.  I can spend some time away and think.  As much as being alone with suck, maybe it will help the current situation.  Hard to say.  This just sucks.

    Yikes – that situation did suck! I was a wedding coordinator for a few years & never again. They drained the life out of me with only a few exceptions. When you’re doing your best and you stepped up when they asked, it is very hard to navigate negative shit. There is so much emotion and expectations at a wedding that you really have to have thick skin because you will get the negative backlash. Look at this as a weekend seminar about wedding photography. What did you learn about how to photo them? What poses worked, what didn’t, Have a sundae, then step back and look at it from a business perspective. What are all the lessons you learned – that may take some of the sting out.
