My one and only wedding falls under the "favor" category also. It was for a friends aunt, it was a paying job, but not near enough. Original agreement was for just a few "snapshots" of the ceremony followed by a few snapshots at the reception, then I am out the door! Well, after 10 hours, I finally made it home and missed a set up time for the next days event. The topper was watching a gentleman have a stroke, fall over and pass away while dancing with his grand-daughter! I was so close but it seemed like slow motion... an hour later when the EMTs took him away, they resumed the reception. They told everyone he would be fine, but only told everyone that so they would not be depressed at the reception. And after that, they never purchased a single image! This friend has asked me to be her wedding photog and promised that no one will die... I politely declined.

hahah holy crap!

Leaned on a podium to capture the Father-Daughter dance and bumped into a decorative iron piece which hung on a short single nail that came down and poke me right on top of my skin head. Good thing that no one seen it so I didn't make a scene. Bad thing was my head started to bleed but still have to hand around to get my shots then head to clean up while my other Shooter is taking over.

Lesson for me to learn is to be extremely careful with whatever I lean on from this point on.

If the chauffeur of the bus the couple has rented is elderly and appears incapable of driving. Do not park close to him when doing the couples photos at the park, etc. He may just mistake the reverse gear for the first gear and back and back into your parked vehicle while the wedding party watches in dismay.

I ALWAYS seem to say something stupid at some point during the day and at a wedding last year I accidently called the Mom, "Grandma" when I was positioning everyone for formals. Oops.
