Re: Couple Time

I think it depends on what you define as being a friend. To me, that would be someone who I have known for some time, would probably go out for the evening with, have around for a meal, perhaps even share a holiday with and someone who would be there in times of need.

So when I say that a wedding client is not going to be my friend, that doesn't mean that I won't go out of my way to be friendly and make them feel at ease. Building up a friendly easy going relationship with a client, is something that requires understanding and balance but doesn't require the establishing of a long term close friendship. Past clients are always pleased to see me and vice versa and I always take time to find out how they are doing and how life is treating them, after all if they like me and feel at ease, they will recommend me. I won't be phoning them up and asking them if they would like to come on holiday with my wife and I.

So perhaps it's just a difference of definition rather than approach:-)

Re: Couple Time

Tom, thanks for sharing that video, by the way. I liked it a lot, and wish my own videos were half as good. Great use of natural sound, beautiful candid shots in the hair salon and of dancing guests, and some nice staged moments -- including, presumably, the waiter popping the champagne. Particularly struck by some of the from-above angles for the dancing, and by the shot with the bride sitting and gazing -- looked like you were shooting through a curtain or something -- nice diffused look.
