Sick of It

Do you remember this sock commercial?

I loved this commercial from the start, I love the dad and son moment and I especially love the way the little boy says 'sick of it'. It's okay; you can call me weird.

'Sick of It' is exactly how I feel after the wedding I shot this weekend. I've been pricing my services extremely low for weddings because I have very little experience with weddings, don't have the right equipment, and I hate doing them. I tell every couple going in that I'm uncomfortable and inexperienced and they still ask. I don't think I'll be doing many weddings from here on out. I was so exhausted and stressed and spent by the time I got home on Saturday, that all I really wanted to do was sit down and cry. I had a headache all day yesterday and now I have 1000+ photos to go through, edit and organize. Ugh.

I think I'm going to have to put my foot down and quit with the weddings, or at least start charging WAY more. I just know that if it were me, I'd want someone capturing my big day who felt as if they could do it. Maybe one day I'll be there, but I'm not there yet.


  1. AGREED. I feel overwhelmed even after a normal session, and weddings are extreme. Just keep plugging away and remember to do what you love. I have struggled a lot with deciding what I do and don't want to do photography wise - it is a journey for sure.

  2. :( I'm sorry you had such a stressful time. I definitely think you should price yourself higher. That way, if they truly, truly want you do to it, it's worth the time, effort and aggravation on your part.


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
