- Wedding: May 2011
Probably way more info than is needed…
My cousin volunteered to do the photography at our wedding. She’s just starting out as a professional photographer – she does beautiful kids portraits/action shots. Ours will be her first wedding (this does not bother me in the slightest – her work is great, and it’s experience she can point to for other clients.)
We plan on doing a reception two weeks after the wedding in his home town (crap, I need a reception dress… whole other can of worms.) My cousin is doing our wedding for free, and she said her minimum turn around time would be a week, and then she’d want to send a flash drive. Again, not a problem.
So, I need a back-up to take photos on my camera. My candidate for this refers to me as her third daughter, and I refer to her as my Anna-Mommy (my best friend’s mom.) She’s known my mom since high school, and they’ve worked together for the past few years. Due to politics at work, though, my mom isn’t supposed to go to her department (help requests must be submitted through proper channels, and my mom can usually fix their issues within ten minutes when they ask directly), and thus hasn’t had a conversation with Anna-Mommy in months.
Mostly, I don’t know the correct etiquette for asking this of Anna-Mommy. Since the wedding is at my mom’s house and all. I have Anna-Mommy’s facebook, but she RARELY checks it. Do I send her a message on facebook and ask my mom to go talk to Anna? (Anna made a comment to me the last time we talked that she misses my mom.) Do I call Anna and ignore the chill between her and my mom that isn’t remotely Anna’s fault (my mom told me not to tell Anna about the departmental orders)?
