While this situation turned out okay, a word of caution: be realistic when you plan a photo shoot. As a photographer you should always warn the client of risks if they insist upon something that doesn’t sit right with you. As a client, you have the right to do anything, but on your wedding day, sure, you only live once, but you should probably stick to safe scenarios—for your health’s sake.
