Weddings are stressful. Brides and grooms want every single thing to go just right, and an unbelievable level of attention is paid to the smallest details, from the flowers to the music to the food to the photo shoot.
Speaking of that last item, go ahead and take a look to see how the photo shoot in the video above goes for a bride and groom just a few days before their wedding.
Ouch! That looks like it really must have hurt… The video was allegedly posted by the wedding photographer who writes about the photo flight fail-ure:
Ok so here’s the story. This was shot using a DJI phantom and a gopro camera. This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the [groom] on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and and the side of his head. I felt horrible. Luckily the bride and groom were able to laugh about it after and we continued the shoot. At the request of the bride and groom I put the video online. All though it sucks that this happened. I have decided to own up to what I did, instead of try to hide it from the world.
If it helps, we’d say the silver-lining is that it wasn’t the bride who got hit in the head.
