Wow! The wedding couple are really serious in capturing that one moment. I see at least 2-3 photographers covering the event, and not to say the few video cameras used by the videographer. In Singapore, most people are only willing to fork out for 1 photographer and 1 videographer, with maybe some friends as backup for free.

no la, most of them dont do studio shots, that's why they are willing to get 2 photographers. moreover, IIRC most studios offer 2 photographers to cover the entire wedding, so we could say it's part of the package.

Something to learn from the clip is that Photographers should be well dressed too (besides hiring a good looking person).

funny part is the last part of the second link! the 'flight of the bumble bee' stops and the photog knocks over something that created a lot of noise!

Usually how much do their photographers get?

I think some of them e.g. Gary Fong are millionaire by shooting wedding photography.

He makes millions by just shooting weddings alone? Saw his website and he seems to be a photography-business orientated person.. hehe..

As quoted from his site: "Gary migrates between his nine homes in California and British Columbia."

"Accidents" do happen.

I saw a photographer knocked down the "Long Fong" candles from the altar. He was moving backwards at that moment while trying to take photos of my friends returning home for tea ceremony. The two candles actually fell onto the ground and extinguished!

I take wedding photography sometimes too, just feel that you need to be extra sensitive and considerate during those times, especially when u r not the only person covering the event. There are times you are so engrossed in the job that you "forget" about other people or things happening around you. Just like the lady in the video.

There was once i covered a wedding. This videographer was so dominating during the shoot that he kept zooming the camera in and out. When i said "zoom", he din used the zoom function on the camera. He was in fact physically moving in and out, all the times, in a small HDB house. He can even moved like close to 10cm from the subject!! Most of the times, I was trying very hard to avoid getting him into the pictures. He seemed to forget that there's another person trying to take pictures too.

That's the reason why sometimes i need to remind myself to give some space and opportunities for others too, while concentrating my photo takes. Well, guess we are all trying to get our job done after all.

Having said all that, if one day i am videotaped, i hope i wouldn't behave like those irritating photographers caught on tape!!!!
