Re: Being coerced to shoot a wedding. I need HELP! Please chime in.

it's very easy: just tell them that you'd like to be invited at the wedding but you don't know whether you'll go for sure or whether you'll get your camera with you or whether you'll be in the mood for taking photos. Tell them that if you go and you have your cam and you're in the right mood then you may take a few photos as a guest to preserve your own personal memories, and that if you do that then you may decide to share the photos with them, but you may also decide to keep the photos for you and not give them to them or that you may wish to get something in return for sharing *your* memories with them Also tell them that there are pro photogs who will accept responsibility for creating photos they'll like.

After you say this, just do whatever you want: stay at home, or go without the camera, or go with the camera and only use it to photograph a flower or two, or take a few pics of the wedding and then keep the photos for yourself, or share them with them.

Make sure you explain that you don't do a service for them, but you are only having some selfish fun for yourself, either as a guest without a camera or as a guest photographing just for the sake of it, and that whether you'll share your pics is your decision alone.
