No of course not :biggrin: I cant watch the vid at work. Just wondering if the paid tog was asked to leave how the couple took it and if that would constitue a discount due to missed shots... Gets kinda complicated at that point.Just because he is paid, doesn't mean he can't be a jerk does it?
( that is "he" in the generic sense of course :wink: )
Ahmen. Many Roman Catholic Churches will not permitYears ago, Still Photographers working on movie sets were required to use sound-proof cases called blimps to house their cameras so their noise was not picked up by the sound mikes. I assume that today, many Digital cameras have quiet modes that would serve the same function.
Regardless, the problem might have been avoided if the Priest had been consulted before the wedding to find out if certain parts of the ceremony weren't to be filmed.
Last time I did a wedding, I did just that and only shot when it was allowed. If nothing else, checking before-hand shows respect for the clergy, the Church and the ceremony itself, and will usually get you an ally in the clergy.
Then you've just got to go along with the rules as they are outlined by the person doing that particular ceremony.At this type of occasion when we have had a pro photographer we have asked permission and found out the ground rules. Some clergy have allowed and some have not.
Agree 100%.Respect for the priest ? Just cos he's a priest, it doesnt give him a free pass to behave obnoxiously, which is exactly how he behaved.
