I carried my gear to a co-worker's wedding to get a little practice for indoor, low light photography. Even though I was asked by the bride to take pictures, when the photographer came out and saw me with my camera, he gave me the "Burn in Hell look," so I simply sat my camera under the pew until after the ceremony was over. No need in making more enemies than I already have.

I just don't understand pros who do that. Clearly, someone who is insecure in their own talents, capabilities, and business model.

And regardless, unless the "pro" is prepared to make a scene over it, you should have felt comfortable clicking away, taking care to be respectful of the work they need to accomplish for their clients.
