mine

Mother of the bride was my client: Asked me to cut as much of the groom and his family out of the video as possible and tried to buy the raw video tapes to make sure the in-laws would get nothing out of the video. She was angry because they had agreed to share the costs of a huge reception, but they stiffed her. I should have said: "Remember me for your daughter's next wedding." She did recommend me to at least 3 more clients before I moved out of the area.

Man, that's cold. Don't know if I could've done this. I know what it's like to "technically" work for the person that paid for the gig but still... to minimize one side of the family? These in-laws are off to a great start.

I don't know if that means that I am lucky to have had typical wedding dancing and no real hot and heavy stuff. I'm sure that sort of dancing might eventually get around to one of my gigs, but I hope to not have to deal with that.
