What you have to offer is your style and your personality. You'll never be able to duplicate someone's ability to capture photos. I think it's absolutely impossible. And I think it's great! Clients choose photographers based on that. If someone prefers one photographer over another, then that's the business. If they wanted you to do the photoshoot, then they would have called you, not me. Simple as that. It just doesn't make sense to me. I'm trying not to let it get to me, but some of the things this person said was just completely uncalled for. It kind of hurt me, but it was like a feel good hurt. For someone to go out of the way to tell my client that you could provide them something better is only showing your own insecurity. You can simply say that you don't like my style of work or whatever it is but don't go knocking everything I do and call me just a "free portrait setting" with an "entry level camera". Apparently, this person is not from this part of the woods, but around here, our momma's have taught us that if we have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

Thank you for fueling my fire :) Sorry for the vent sesh. Now, to more editing my "free portrait setting" photographs! The end result (to me) is going to be amazing!
On to other things! My resume is done and ready for tomorrow! **Fingers crossed friends!** This girl needs some part time work!
Since I showcased other beautiful wedding work earlier, I figured it was time for me to get around to editing and showing off some of my own details photos from weddings over the summer.

|One of my least favorite venues to work, but one of my most favorite to look at.|
|I love taking photos of cakes! They're just gorgeous!|

Question of the night? Have you ever been approached in this manner (my photographer confrontal)? Or even felt threatened by another photographer? Thoughts, theories, tales?
