I feel bad for that couple. I definitley don’t want photographers in the way at all during my ceremony but how that officiant handled it was unprofessional and embarassing.

Holy cracker jack!!!! How freaking awkward, I feel so bad for the couple.  Did you see their faces??? I feel so bad for them; he was so rude and handled that so wrong.  Ugh that sucks, thank goodness I know officiant would never do this but now I’m definitely getting everyone on the same page.

Is this his first wedding???? Come on now, what did he expect? And they’re not in a chruch where standing behind him on the pulpit might be seen as disrespectful. Dude needs a chill pill. I would be dying inside if  I had been the bride.

I cant believe the couple didn’t say anything. I would have said straight away “This is not a pulpit and they are taking the photos we hired them to.” If he started backchatting d tell him to do the job HE was hired to do!

 

Posters on the site were right – this will be remembered over anything else in the wedding let along what was probably a gorgeous ceremony!

Woah. that was crazy! I can’t believe that really happened. 
That officiant really over reacted. :/ shame on him.
I know there are those churches that don’t allow the photographer to take any pictures during the ceremony.

I actually can see why the minister found this disrespectful. I think that this shows that the minister takes his religous vocation seriously.  From that camera angle, it looks like the videographer was literally right behind the minister in the pulpit area. The bride and groom should have communicated with the minister and photo/video team better prior to the ceremony to ensure that everyone was on the same page.  Some ministers do not alllow flash photography or photography at all when they marry people.  It is the responsibilty of the bride and groom to find out what their pastor’s policy is in advance.

WOW, that was really unecessary, photographer was just doing his job. The officiant was rude. How embarrassing. Felt bad for couple.

some venues have very clear policies regarding photographers. Churches especially. If the photogrspher was not complying or the couple did not communicate the expectations those type of things can cause tension. Obviously not a reasonable reaction but that’s something the photog should be aware if when shooting. 

But seriously if your concern is not having this solemn ceremony interrupted by the photography, isn’t it incredibly ironic and counter productive to make a scene like that?

I feel horrible for them! They were doing their jobs and he tells them to move anywhere but here. He ruined the ceremony, not them.
