SOooooooo EXCITED!

So... today is my 4 year wedding anniversary and last night Doug and I went out to get "our" gift that we are going to share. I am so excited and have been waiting for this for a long time! I, uh-um... rather, we, got a brand new Nikon SLR D-40 camera! I am soooooo excited! I am an aspiring wedding photographer and this is one step close to being able to be considered... "professional". I had a really bad experience last week. The mother of the Bride of the big wedding that I had scheduled for August called and said that they decided to go with a "professional" photographer. WHAT??? That just crushed me. You wanna know why... because she said that the "real" photographers were going to have backup cameras and they assured her that they would have backups incase a problem occured with the first camera. This is exactly what I told her I would have, which is true, and I was only charging a FRACTION of what they will probably be charging her. I was livid. I really wanted to go through the phone and shake her. I got off the phone and cried my eyes out. Oh well... they are now wanting up to do the video for the wedding and they offered to pay me the same amount that they were going to pay me for the photography. I just can't bring myself to say yes. First of all... that is a lot of money for just a video. Second of all... I am not a videographer! My mom usually does video for family, but this is nothing professional. I am tempted to take it, take the money and just give them a crappy video... but I have a conscience. So... I am not sure what I am going to do. I guess I will take it. Videoing will be a lot easier anyway... I won't have to tell people to "stand still" or "smile". Ok... this started out about my camera... not my encounter with a Bridezilla! What a creep! LOL! ANyway... I have said it.. now I will forget it! :) Sorry for the rant....
