This is a classic example of what not to do as a wedding photographer on a wedding day. While photographing the newlyweds making their way out, this poor photographer backed up so much that she ended up in the water! The good thing is she was okay, though understandably shaken. But the bad thing is the Nikon camera looks like it took some serious damage:
The horror on the face of the couple can be clearly seen, and shouts from the other guests are clear as the photographer slipped and—despite trying her best to get back her footing—plunged into the water behind her. (Via PetaPixel)
One thing we have to give to the photographer is that she’s a true professional. Out of the water and still upset by the embarrassing turn of events, her first concern was,
“Is the camera okay?”
We sincerely hope that at least the memory card(s) were!
What’s been your most embarrassing photography moment?
