Renovations are stressful on relationships

The other day I was reading an article on the new york times that claimed that home renovations can be very stressful to relationships, they provided some tips on how to handle stressful situations like a big kitchen renovation or anything else that can cause a married couple to disagree on something.

For the most part I have learned that in relationships the most important aspect is communication, without communication you don’t have a stable relationship.

Communication is the life and blood of any relationship, sitting down to plan and discuss what to expect from a home renovation or anything that requires a commitment from both is important. As a photographer it’s easy to see that I have dealt with a lot of different couples and I have also seem couples that only lasts 3-6 months because they were never in stressful situations and can’t handle them together. I guess the lesson here is before saying YES and spending thousands in a wedding then be sure you are marrying the right person and you also have a clear understanding of your partners emotions.

Just wanted to share some of my thoughts đŸ˜‰

Don’t fall for internet marketers scammers.

Quick post today, I was looking for a web designer to help me change some stuff on my site to make it look responsive and make my portfolio look better on mobile devices and I was referred a guy who did a limo rental cape coral site for a friend of mine. I’m just telling you this to be aware not everyone out there has good intentions when it comes to this industry that is internet marketing & services.

He said he was from diseno web miami a small company in Florida who helped small businesses with design and marketing services.

So basically what I decided to pay the guy 50% of the fee in order to get started, I was told the job would be done in a matter of 2 weeks and funny how after a week I didn’t hear back from the guy. About a month later the guy shows up and says he had some personal issues and didn’t have time to contact me and let me know. He offered to basically resume the work and I said I would give him a second chance. But, a few days later he asked for the other 50% of the fee without finishing the job and when I refused he said I was taking advantage of him. I learned a few days ago he never really work in the company he claimed to work for.

I guess the lesson here is be sure to always check for references and don’t simply hire someone without doing some research and learning if the person is truly who they say they are.

Should you hire an entertainer for your ceremony?

I often get asked by email what are the best entertainment options for a wedding and if it’s better to simply hire someone or simply have your uncle Joe throw some speakers and hook up his phone for music. Honestly, I say don’t go with the uncle option. It’s very likely that depending on your budget you’ll find that there are ways for you to entertain your guests without spending an arm and a leg.

In fact one of the best options is hiring a DJ. Many times depending on where you plan to have your wedding like hotels or resorts they’ll include the entertainment as part of your package. Of course it can be quite expensive.

The day of your ceremony you’ll probably be so stress and busy with so many things at once you won’t think about the little details. If you have a budget be sure to have a wedding planner since that can save you a lot of headaches, you can let them worry about finding the right entertainment options that are affordable and matches the theme of your wedding. If you are doing it alone then ahead of time start searching for the right entertainer for your wedding. For example my friend Sandra recently got married and she had no referrals, she lives in the sw florida area and simply searched for a fort myers dj that fit her budget and also was flexible to her taste in music.

After all the whole point is to party all night and you want your guest to have a great time right?

Then search on sites like WeddingWire to find a large variety of disc jockeys in your area or simply searching on Google in your local city to see what type of costs and the best deal you can get. So, I say YES, get a good DJ for your wedding and make it an unforgettable day.
