Its been a while since I have been here… Sorry about that.
Soaringturkeys: I am a girl btw. The bride is a childhood friend of mine so I simply offered my services at a discount. I offered a engagement shoot as a wedding gift (free so of coarse they took it). I market myself as a package since I have a studio in my familys printing company they print my work and they print save the dates, invitations, and we even carry personalized wedding items. We are a one stop shop pretty much. I was just a little annoyed that they choose someone that could not produce quality work. No big deal anymore though. I suppose it was just the initial shock.
