Just curious what everyone's opinion is on this. Thank you lord this hasn't come up with any of my weddings but with an elderly father and mother I've often wondered what I would do if it did. I don't think I have to go into the importance of wedding photography for the client. Hopefully for them, its the ONE time they will be getting married and capturing the moment correctly as it unfolds is one of the most important reasons to hire a professional. Just what outside occurrence has to occur for you, the photographer, to pack up and leave early, even during a ceremony? Does a phone call from your wife that you're mom/dad was just hospitalized reach that level? Leaving the wedding early and getting to the hospital doesn't ensure your parent will pull through. Getting to the hospital only helps you, not them. What about a call that your wife was just injured in an accident? Your child? I hope I never have to make that call. Opinions?
