Here is how the discussion went:
groom: "My fiancee and I are looking for a wedding photographer."
jw: "Ok. I can give you the names of a few photographers that I am comfortable recommending."
groom: "No. We want you to photograph our wedding."
jw: "Hmm. How did you find me? Did you really look at my website?"
groom: "We did a search for 'photographers in CT', and we looked at a the websites of few photographers; we like your work."
jw: "I'm flattered, but I don't shoot weddings."
groom: "We know-that's why we want you"
"Thanks, but let me think about this. In the meantime, I'll send you links to a few different wedding photographers. If you get in trouble, and can't find one who is not busy that day, then call me back."
Six weeks later, I got another telephone call from the groom:
groom: "We still want you to photograph our wedding."
jw: " Really?! Let's meet for coffee. Can you come to Guilford?"
So we met.
A very nice couple. Both of them are obviously smart, and creative. He's also very interested in photography.
To make a long story short, since work has been slow, and they agreed to my price, I agreed to shoot their wedding.
It was a very hot, but beautiful wedding day, and for a good part of that day and evening, I photographed their beautiful & fun wedding.
