Video: Wedding Photographer Blocks the Videographer’s Shots

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.

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. Read more…
