- Wedding: November 2014
I am planning on asking (well I kind of already asked, though not formally) my friend’s husband to shoot our wedding pictures. He is super talented and I love his work. He used to work as a photography assistant for his cousin, who has his own photography business. My friend’s husband told me that he would do our wedding for cheap since he is trying to start a business separate from his cousin’s. Here’s the problem: I really would like his cousin to shoot my wedding because after comparing their work, I think I really like the cousin’s better and FH and I decided this was one place we wanted to splurge if we had to. It wouldn’t be a problem, except apparently the cousin and my friend’s husband are having “issues” (that is all I was told and I don’t feel it’s my business to ask further). And since I want to have my friend and her husband at my wedding anyway, it’s not like I can just have the cousin do that pictures and they’ll never know about it.
My question is: How do you suggest I go about tactfully telling my friend’s husband that I want his cousin to come shoot the wedding too without offending him. Is that even possible? I was thinking about going the “I really want you to not be too busy and be able to enjoy being a guest too” route, but idk! Help!
