I had one like that last year. Here are a few quick edits (I obviously didnt use these)

He told me he would stay out of the way, and asked if it would be alright to stay in the corners for the ceremony. Sure, I thought (we were thinking about different corners)

Sorry Bryan i feel your frustration... if i may suggest, move this pic to the forum "show me your photographers" in hopes that this mofo sees himself how much of a doucebag he is for ruining your pics.

No worries, Bryan. I actually thought about asking others for their similar shots. Don't you just drop your jaw at the audacity?!!

Haha lovely. I love these kinds of people. I had one guy shooting with nothing but a fisheye. He had to stand 4 ft away from the couple the whole ceremony to prevent them from disappearing in fisheye infinity. Drove me nuts. If they get really bad, I actually sometimes stand infront of them, take a shot, and then purposely walk backwards and smack right into them. If that doesn't send them a clue that they're in the way, then NOTHING will.

When I've worked with pro videographers - we always work to stay out of each other's way. I'm thinking about warning future couples to ask their friends to stay back - maybe even use this photo as an example . . .

I was actually shooting for a studio, and they delivered the photos. My second and I were good enough that we were able to get good shots, but nothing wide. We stuck to tight shots.

The thing that bothered me the most is he stood RIGHT in front of the grooms mom, literary inches in front of her, blocking her for the entire ceremony. He must have leaned back and said "dont worry, you can watch the video of your son getting married in a few months."

I guess that's what I'm curious about. Does the couple think, geez, what a jerk cousin Joey is or do they think we as photographers should have waved him out of there?

Not only was he being a jerk, he had the audacity to be one while wearing a Nikon around his neck.

Seems like every time I have this problem the offender is wearing a Nikon around his neck.

thats what I was wondering too
I think Id leave several shots in the cue of him with his face glaring at you
and see what the bride/groom has to say
all you could do is shrug and say, "hey, he was everywhere like a ninja!"

Really too bad for the bride and groom when people act like this. Dont think there is much you can do other than politely point out to the person that you were hired to photograph the event and ask them to step out of the scene. You have to be blunt because obviously they dont give a rats arse about anything else other than what they are trying to do.

My suggestion for everyone is to Right click, print and save a couple of these shots and show them to your future clients at the consultation. Show them things that can really screw up the wedding photography. Just shows your concerned about getting your clients the best looks you can get, plus it puts that bride on notice to tell uncle harry to sit down and leave the photography to the experts-- in advance.

True story-- had a relative that was shooting a camera and triggering my flash for the group shots. The 2nd time it happened, Mama bear told the relative- " you do that one more time and im going to shove that camera up you Arse". I think most brides and Mothers of the brides solve this problem for you in advance especially if you show them shots like the ones posted here. I have not had anyone this blatent yet, but if i did, i would solve the problem with a little blunt suggestions as to where he should be positioned for the photographs when a professional is in the house.
