I broke 2 of my photography rules this weekend…

Yep.  I did.  And not the kinds of rules one generally thinks of when it comes to photography.  I still follow the Rule of Thirds for composition, Framing, Background and so forth.  No, I broke my personal rules.

  1. Do not shoot weddings or portraits – price yourself out of the ballpark so they would be insane to hire you and you would be insane to turn it down.
  2. Do not shoot weddings or portraits for family members.

I did both.  I shot my sister’s wedding this past weekend.  If it were anyone else, it would have been an emphatic hell no, or $15,000.  She’s family, and my mom and she both applied the guilt trip and all, and got me in a moment of weakness.  I will say, however, never again.  It was a frustrating day/evening that left me working on a day I should have been able to enjoy with my family, rather than being an outsider looking in through glass…
