    I just got the deposit today, and they want to do an engagement shoot on Sunday... and they want a 16x20 to display at their wedding.

    No pressure. :rofl:

    did they just talk to you recently, or is this just bad planning on their part?

    This is the couple that wamted to go w/ me, then decided since his sister was going to pay for it, they were going to go w/ the photog she chose. Then they found out the guy was too expensive and they would've had to pay the same amount they were going to pay me on top of what his sister was paying.

    So, he emailed me again w/ the other guys' website, asking me if I could "as good a job" as the other guy. I was so pissed I almost told him to fuck off... but instead, I added to the price I initially quoted him and sent him a new contract. THEN he calls me asking if he could pay me a 1/3rd now, 1/3rd a week before the wedding, and 1/3rd the day of the wedding. With a smile on my face, I said "fuck no". :)

    So now, this has just become about the money... shoot, edit, burn, and be done w/ it. If they don't like it, fuck 'em.

    Another reason I didn't tell them to fuck off is because they bought a bunch of wedding stationary from my wife, too.

    Oh, THOSE guys.

    Here's hoping (not far fetched at all) I never get anywhere near enough to even consider wedding photography :mamoru:

    I think DNL Photo Packaging sells them. It's not on their site, but I think I saw it in their catalog. http://www.dnlphoto.com/index.html

    I'm not going to do a shitty job just because of what happened. With that being said, if they don't like the outcome of the product, thats going to be put on them... not me.
