OR AT LEAST EMILIE SOMMER THINKS SO. READ FOR YOURSELF
Emilie Sommer, a Maine-based wedding photographer, recently wrote a childish and ignorant blog post that gained popularity by dissing wedding filmmakers all around. The discussion is on fire on the most popular Facebook forum for wedding filmmakers Wedding Cinema & Wedding Photography. As we all know, photography is very important for the memory of a wedding but filmmaking is very important just the same. There are good people and bad people in any business, that’s as simple as it gets.
The world doesn’t revolve around self-centered artists who don’t seem to know how to balance social skills and mutual respect for their fellow vendors. Everyone has the right to be passionate and serious about their jobs. The most talented and successful in any business are the ones that know how to balance for a win/win outcome using basic communication. The fact that Emilie closed her comments appears very suspicious indicating the flood of people who disagree. Sometimes you have to take a step back and say “Maybe I’m the problem.”
Masters In Motion Live posted a more detailed reaction of this controversial article.
Posts like this are misleading and poisonous to the entire wedding industry and all potential clients involved. We will be glad to pull this post once Emilie as realized she has mad a mistake and pulls this rubbish off her public site.
