You sound like a different person in this post, almost saintly. And no, not a wedding photographer.

Jekyll and Hyde. Mostly Dr. Jekyll, but you push me out of the way when I'm trying to get the money shot I was paid to get, I'll stand my ground. I can think of only a few instances where I showed my dark side, I'm certainly not a bad a* .

I was mostly a commercial/industrial photographer, weddings were more of a side job. Maybe that's why I had good experiences, I didn't accept every customer who showed up for a consult. Early in my career I learned that certain customers were hard to work with and ultimately unprofitable.

Wedding photography is a hard way to make a living. I ultimately went back to school and got a second degree and changed professions. I get paid well enough that I can pursue my interests in photography at a purely amateur level.
