I'm in the process of going through a wedding we just shot, that just sort of went off the deep end. Everyone in the wedding party was late, so the actually ceremony started an hour late. Which meant no pictures at the church, because they had someone coming in after them, and we were kicked off the property immediately after the ceremony. It was a 20 min drive to the reception area. The bar was open, and the whole wedding party including the bride and groom just scattered and started drinking. There was 2 of us (2 photographers), and in all honestly it felt like we were trying to round up a bunch of school children to get people to take any photos. The bride, ended up getting really upset and blowing up at everyone, which then made everyone else get an attitude. So, in the very few pictures we managed to get, there is always someone rolling their eyes, or glaring, or even frowning! And that's after we managed to get them all together, including having the MOH help me convince the bride to come out of her car! Afterwords, the bride was just gone. Drank to much ,and looks drunk in almost all the reception photos. (During the toast, instead of using their very expensive flutes, she held a bottle of whine in each hand, drinking right from the bottle). They are both nice people, and I really think the stress and not having a cooperative or supportive wedding party just got the best of them. They are both self conscious, and I can just tell they are going to be disappointed by their photos. I sent them a sneak preview of about 20 photos, and already I'm getting comments like, I wish you would have told us not to do that, or do you have any better pictures where I look better. And I'm supposed to be making them an album of their wedding, and I know she's going to cringe at all the toast photos, garter photos & bouquet photos (if not all of them). At least the cake photos they are laughing (smashed it all over each other), but in the rest its just that zoned out, I drank to much and might throw up look. We just barely passed our one year mark of doing weddings, so some advice from people doing this longer than us would be great. Has anyone else had a situation like this? What do you do when a wedding just seems to go down this path? My husband says I worry to much, and I should just hand them their photos, and say "We just capture it like it happens", and be done with it. But I can't help feeling really sad about it.
