Update: Unfortunately, the video has been taken down since we put this post up. We’ll keep an eye out and get it back up if and when it is re-uploaded.
Wedding photographers have complained before (and for good reason) of people getting in their way while they try to do their job. In the video above, however, the tables have turned. It’s not a guest getting up and standing in the middle of the aisle, blocking every shot. The one in the way is actually the photographer.
Posted to a Facebook group and discovered by Fstoppers‘ Trevor Dayley, the video was put together by Motivity Films as a humorous message to all wedding photographers that it’s not always the videographer or guests in the way.
Two minutes and two completely different angles still can’t shake the photographer out of the shot. In fact, once the videographer moves to get her out of the shot, she manages to shimmy her way back in.
Keep in mind, this isn’t about shaming the photographer. Apparently, she eventually realized what happened and apologized to the Motivity Films guys for getting in the way.
It’s just a funny example of why you always have to be aware of your surroundings when shooting a wedding. If there are videographers working the wedding as well, it’s probably a good idea to sit down with them and plan out your shots together, so you don’t get in each other’s way and nobody gets in the guests’ way.
