Wow...I was amazed to see this one:
I mean, I've heard of officiants getting testy inside of church buildings, but even then, usually setting the rules before the ceremony.
This guy blows up in the MIDDLE of the ceremony, embarrassing the bride and groom....and this ceremony was OUTDOORS.
I read one quote someone made on YouTube that I agreed with. The groom should have leaned into the priests ear and said something like "I'm paying the photographers much like I'm paying you, please continue. And..if you do walk out, I'll sue your ass off, now, please get back to marrying us..."
I will not call it a meltdown. The priest is very calm. We only see part of it. We do not know whether the photographer has asked the priest's consent BEFORE the ceremony or not. Even worst, the priest may have announce that no photographer is allow in the alter area and the photographer has ignored it. Most of the priest will not allow photography during the ceremony no matter whether it is inside of the church or outdoor. If the photographer is a professional, he should know better. The priest has the right to ask him to leave whether the photographer is hire by the groom or not.
+ 1 For me too.
Yes in The Large Church, The Wedding in North Carolina, No photographer allow at the Altar area or the Church Sanctuary/ Main Floor level, Except at the Balcony area of the Sanctuary , where we set the Tripods and the Big Zoom Lens or The Big Telephotos Lens, for the Main Photographers, And Let the support photographers shoot from the back of the sanctuary----YES, the Shutter Sound, if Close to the Priest , will interrupt the Ceremony and Priest's speech---Special some new/ Spring chicken - wedding photographers might use continuous shooting mode--That One in a life time ---That are Formal Ceremony.
Yes, As the Wedding photographers, We must have the rehearsal 1 day before the real ceremony, and we will learn the rules from all the people involve. No, We, as the good , Professional Wedding Photographers, We will not screw up the expensive ceremony, and Lose our face and lose future job, for the future $ 20,000 US Dollars Fee. for two day works.
