I'd love to know what he showed as a portfolio to convince someone to pay almost $2000 for his services.
Heck, I thought you were talking to actual "danger". I once had a lady threaten to have me killed if I gave the prints to the person who paid for the job. She then said, "Of course, I'll pay your regular fee plus a premium." When I told her my loyalty must remain with my original client she became enraged and demanded her husband to take me outside and deal with me. Fotunately, the other wedding party had several members of the local police department. They put an end to that nonesense. I did look over my shoulder from time-to-time for awhile though. :)
No, I think she was the aunt of the bride... of a local mob family, I believe.
I thought about being a wedding photogaper at one time many years ago, but more I read about it the more I'm glad that I'm not one.
#All lined up in a wedding group
#'Ere we are for a photograph
#We're all dressed up in a morning suit
#All trying hard not to laugh
#Since the early caveman in his fur
#Took a trip to Gretna Green
#There's always been a photographer
#To record the 'appy scene.....
#'Old it, flash, bang, wallop, what a picture
#What a picture, what a photograph
#Poor old soul, blimey, what a joke
#Hat blown off in a cloud of smoke
#Clap 'ands, stamp yer feet
#Bangin' on the big bass drum
#What a picture, what a picture
#Stick it in your fam'ly album
I think he could be on a winner here...
