Would you have still paid this photographer?

Always look at the bright side, if noting happen, everything very perfect, nobody will remember their wedding after sometime.

Mishaps will only make simple things so special.

It was an accident, and the photographer felt bad about it, as most normal people would. Another good thing is, the wedding couple were able to laugh it off.

It is not acceptable. The client was forgiving. What if the propeller of the drone has slashed his eyes and blinded him?
If the pro photographer cannot handle the drone, he must NOT deploy it.
Once it is out of control, any member of the public near there is endangered.

It is imperative that all photographers buy an insurance.

The moment you ask a model to climb on a rock or perch on a tree branch for a pose you are exposing yourself to law suit resulting from accident.

This is what separates a pro from an amatuer. That's why you must always deal with a pro or someone who looks like a pro with pro gear and a tie. :)

can climb trees and take photos from the back of a motorcycle while simultaneously using 2 DSLRs is a must, too

the couple laughed it off, cleaned up, and continued with the shoot. Afterward, they even requested that the video be uploaded to the Web.
The couple must be thinking ......

If this video won the America Funniest Home Video and they get US$10,000 prize money

They would have recover some of their wedding expenses :)

Do not forget that the clearest indication is also the number of LCD protectors one breaks in those quests.

Hindsight trash.

How would you know the photographer couldn't handle the drone before it crashed into the groom?
