Ok, thats only sort of true.. my Maid/Matron of Honor asked her little sister’s girlfriend to take pictures at my bridal shower yesterday and she asked if she could borrow my ring to take pictures for a little bit. She posted them to her online portfolio and a studio made her an offer to become pro photographer with them! Clearly its her talent and not my ring that got her the job but I’m still super happy for her! I posted it earlier on someone else’s thread but here it is again:
I’m going to tell her that she can use the engagement photos she’s taking for us this weekend for her portfolio too!

@blu77: I’m not 100%, I imagine one that does weddings/engagements/normal types of photography- so I guess portrait/photojournalistic type stuff

what a beautiful picture but an even more beautiful ring – is the stone pink? or is it just a reflection from the flowers, or the way she edited it? either way its really pretty!!

@totheislnds: the stones are clear but it does reflect the rose in a really cool way!

Ok, I am sorry if this comes off terrible, but I read this post like 20 minutes ago and didn’t say anything (thought to keep my opinions to myself), but it kept bothering me and I got that naggy feeling to say something because to me it was something to be a bit concerned of.
So please know that I am not trying to be a troll or be rude.
I think that this girl should be a bit concerned with this studio. People rarely offer jobs to other people like that, usually it is the other way around. When I looked at the picture, I see a nice photo of a ring and flower, but I don’t think it is a good photo that a photography studio would want. I think that if her photos were AMAAAAZING then I could see that, but I don’t think that the photo is actually good.
I guess I just thought that way because last week this unknown man left a message on my phone (where he knew my name) which said that “someone I knew gave him my name and number saying they thought I would appreciate a career change” And he would like to set up an interview. He lived about 20 minutes away and I had no idea who he was, or where he worked or what this job was. My dad said that was a scam and we heard later that a couple other people had similar calls. That next day my friend got a call from her “internet provider” who knew a whole bunch of information about her account and they said she has a virus on her computer and they needed to clean it up for her. She knew her computer had been slow and they sounded legit (they knew alot of info) so she said sure and gave them her credit card info. She got scammed.
Also, once I was offered a job, and my dad thought it was super sketchy, and although they weren’t scammers or creepy people, it ended being a terrrrrible place to be at.
Anyways, that is why that was the first thought that came to my mind. Sorry if I offended, I just realize now that there are a lot of bad people out there. If it is legit, then congrats!
