'I agree. With few exceptions (such as the amazing pictures Mark Rabiner
posted here a couple of years ago) wedding photography is not about
photography, it is about cultural ritual. Find some way to break your leg or
go blind or lose your cameras or something that will help you say "no"'

Having been morally blackamailed into doing a few weddings, I simply pointed
out that I had an 80% divorce rate from weddings I had photographed (which
was true;) It's amazing how people lost interest after that.
