    I don’t think this girl’s duck lip cleavage pics should discourage you from hiring her if she interviews well and has a good product.

    @SkyChick:  Honestly, unless I was really strapped for cash, I would drop her. No need to have a worry about something dumb like your videographer on your wedding day. Also, yeah, Facebook is “personal” but really it’s not, it’s open to the public apparently. I think it is considerable to consider people’s personal and professional lives separate but she did not cover her bases and hide photos and ended up alienating a customer.

    Furthermore, myself having been involved in film in college, it is quite possible that your video will get pushed to the side with everything she’s doing: fundraising for her documentary, filming for class projects, finding gigs, etc. If you can find another inexpensive alternative I would venture that way. You could just politely tell her you’re uncomfortable without getting into the details if you decide not to hire her.

    @SkyChick:  Obviously, everyone has their insecurities, so don’t feel bad about that part.  However, you need to recognize that your issue is with you, not her.  You’re right when you say that there is always someone hotter, but hotter to whom?  I doubt your FI will find this videographer more attractive than you, especially on your wedding day.  In fact, I doubt he’ll even notice her.  If you like her work, she is within your budget, and is reliable would you really not hire her just because of her personal facebook page?

    @SkyChick:  I wouldn’t bother hiring this woman. At least you’re owning it to yourself and admitting you feel uncomfortable. I wouldn’t like it either. NEXT!
