    Sometime ago a frequent client of mine asked me to do a very small quick wedding for a family friend (10 minute ceremony), turns out this person couldn't afford to do book a decent photographer, so since this is a very frequent client I intend to keep her happy and agree to do the wedding with her paying me a decent amount.

    So I arrive early to the hotel while talking to my client's father who is telling me what to say in the reception and ask for the bride by name and last name..the receptionist takes me to her room where I meet the bride's father and I start taking pictures of her bride preparing and generally having a real nice relaxing time taking pics.

    2 hours pass and my client calls me asking me where the hell am I cause the bride is getting married and im nowhere to be seen, yeah that was shocking

    turns out in the hotel there was another bride which had a very similar first and last name that was also getting married that day and was preparing at the same time, also their family had someone named just as my client, that was a fucking stupid ridiculous coincidence

    I swear that is chance telling me I shouldn't shoot weddings

    you should have seen my face when she told me that..I could sell a priceless commercial that time

    good thing about that though, I ran off the hotel just in time to capture the bride and did a really good reception and captured them as a couple, they loved it, then I ran back to the original bride to tell her what had happenned, surprisingly they found it really funny and agreed to buy muy pictures later..i was really ashamed but there was honestly nothing I did wrong..it was just pure fat horrible luck

    I bet you're the only person to be able to take shots of two different weddings at the same time...this might be a niche in wedding photography! ;)

    Should've blamed it on your 2nd couple and told them that it was their fault for having simliar names, haha.

    "WTF?! Why don't you have different names goddamnit?! I am marking up my prices for running around like a looney and embarassing myself!"
