Aww... she's on a budget. Poor girl. Bet she blew a ton on flowers, the dress and the still photographer though.

'Oooh... your budget is tight, huh? How about 1 camera coverage... I hit record and go grab a drink and hand you the tape/card when you walk out?'

Kelsey, the gasoline alone would cost a fortune. Tell them if you can hitch a ride with a family member and if they can drop you off after the shoot. j/k

I know!!! You'd have to be a "local" to realize that I would have been driving ALL DAY LONG!! That was another one of the MANY negatives!

Seriously who doesn't take a second to introduce themselves at some point in the email? And then states that they are looking for someone "personable"?!?!

Before I leave this topic, I did a facebook search on the prospect. Saw the comments about bride's upcoming wedding. It's further confirmation about the attitude problem of the "potential" client.

Be careful of what you say about yourself on facebook. It may bite you in the a@# someday!


Thanks, Everyone for your hilarious input.

I would include in the quote
"Light" edit quote 3-5 cuts maximum. You can upgrade to the "medium" edit package and get 7-10 cuts with two free dissolves!!!

hehehehe nice. That is funny to charge per cut. What about we charge per push of the "pause / record" button too?

You can get a real cheap package if we show up and only hit record once and a cheap edit if you only cut a few times. don't worry about the blurry stuff. remember we only hit record once and only cut once, so every time we moved the camera it was still rolling..... besides, that is what the Fast Fordward button is for. :-)
