A news photographer friend was married at a church where he was told photography was prohibited. The bride-to-be said it was her wedding. And of course all the news photogs invited to the ceremony jumped into the fray.

So there were two photographers at the front, one of whom had a 300mm f2.8 on a monopod, generally used for shooting football. One on the side. An unmanned video camera located high at the back of the church. Another video camera at the front. One more off to one side. And a 1000-watt light to counteract the blue stained glass on the wedding couple.

And when the bride walked up to the altar, the groom pulled out a small pocket camera to get his POV.

The minister chuckled and said the winner of the photo contest would be announced at the end of the ceremony.

Love it!

My favourite is an old irish priest who sat down on a chair near the front of the stage area of his church to give his homily before the wedding vows, and was finding himself distracted by the two photographers (20 - something y.o. girls) who were sitting near the stage area taking reaction shots of the parents and others in the congregation.

As one of them clicked her shutter just in the pregnant pause at the end of his sentence, he turned to these girls and banished them down to the back of the church, telling them it "was his time to speak to his flock, and if they would be so kind as to sit down and listen, they may actually learn something too".
Two chastised girls were very embarrased and waited until he told them they could come and record the wedding before they ventured back down the aisle!
Loved that one too!

Cheers,

Vaughan
