    I was asked by a (distant) cousin tonight if I would do his wedding in March. :hs:

    They're paying for it themselves and they're 'poor'... but at least there will be great persian food and great looking persian girls there. :run:

    He said he's paying me. But since they're the ones paying for it all and not his or her parents, I'm obviously not expecting much. Him and I used to hang out a lot when we were younger, but since he lives in dallas and I've moved around in the past 3 years, I haven't seen him much. Our parents are distant cousins by marriage, so we're not even related by blood. Just so happens we're both persian.

    I told him $175-200/hr is normal, but I'd charge him $100/hr for some badass persian food and a persian girl. :naughty: :mamoru:

    That's funny, my friend who I've known from elementary school just called me last night asking me the same thing. He says it's gonna be a really small event since he doesn't have a lot of money. I told him I'd like to see where it's gonna happen so I can rent equipment from school if need-be. Have you ever assisted on a wedding or anything like that before? I just started working with this wedding photographer so I'm starting to see how it all works. Try to to tag along with a wedding photographer a couple of times just to see how they go about it would be my advice to you....and then do eeeeeet

    I've already done 2 solo weddings, 2 tag alongs, and I'm doing 2 more in the next 2 months. The basics of it aren't hard. Everyone has been to a wedding and knows what's involved. Just have to make sure you get the "must have" shots. The rest is just capturing the moment as it happens. Nothing comlicated!

    Not at all, I was just posting this because I know one of the biggest no nos on OT is doing business with family or friends! I'm sure it'll turn out ok, but being persian, a little drama is inevitable.
