I think wedding photographers seem to forget that they are the hired help. Your job is to around the scene, not in spite of it. Sometimes I wonder who is the jackass and who is the one having to put up with it.

You didn't answer my question. Have you ever been a professional wedding photographer?

I treat those with whom I come in contact with decency and respect, whether they be my plumber, the teenage girl behind the Chik-Fil-A counter or the custodian at the county garbage dump. It's a treat to see their eyes light up when it is apparent I acknowledge there's actually a feeling human being with whom I'm relating. If I can leave just one person feeling a little better, then I've had a successful day.

Did you hip check any of them? Probably because they weren't at a weeding you were shooting. :-)You sound like a different person in this post, almost saintly. And no, not a wedding photographer.
