The Flying Wedding Cam Seemed Like A Good Idea Until It Knocked The Groom The Eff Out! [Video]
Wedding photographers are always struggling to come up with new ways to make a couples special day unique and memorable. I think that the quadracoptor camera can safely be crossed off the list.
Here is a description of what happened by the photog who put it together.
This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the groom on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and and the side of his head. I felt horrible. Luckily the bride and groom were able to laugh about it after and we continued the shoot. At the request of the bride and groom I put the video online. All though it sucks that this happened. I have decided to own up to what I did, instead of try to hide it from the world.
I LOVE that the guy owned up to it! Something like this could be career ending for some people, but this guy stood up and said, "HEY, I did it! I almost killed the groom . . . NOW WHAT?!"
