Oh man, this is just painful to watch. I feel bad for the bride and groom, who are clearly caught off guard by the exchanged.
Muffled in the background, you can hear the photographer ask them “Do you want me to leave?” After the bride responds, the photographer and videographer move out.
Poor form on the officiant for sure. However, the photographer and videographer could have avoided being the center of attention (regardless of whether they were in the right) by taking two minutes to speak with the officiant beforehand – an exchange that should happen before any wedding ceremony.

I’m sure it seemed like a good idea for a cool shot… Do a close fly-by with a DJI Phantom packing a GoPro as the bride and groom cozy up for some wedding photos…
But then, the drone smacks the groom square in the head.
A DJI Phantom like the one used in the above video.
Fortunately, the groom is ok and took it all in good humor. No quadcopters on the honeymoon though…
If you are going to shoot quadcopter videos, be safe folks. Practice, practice, practice before you go live with this stuff. As Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
I’m not a fan of lightning either, which is why I don’t blame this wedding photographer one bit for getting the heck out of there after lightning strikes behind the wedding party.
At least the bride and groom were good sport about the sorry weather they had for their beach wedding. Check out the rather wet processional in the below video.
Anyone else have close encounters with lightning during a shoot?
While posing for a photo shoot in her wedding dress near a river in Montreal, a woman slipped and fell into water about 1-foot deep. The “wedding dress got soaked and became extremely heavy. She started slipping and falling down when the photographer grabbed her but she was too heavy that he couldn’t pull her from the edge,” according to Quebec provincial police Sgt. Ronald McInnis.
