The worst photography nightmare?

Having photographed many weddings and events in the long island area, I have certainly encountered my share of bridezillas and nightmare stories.

For me, it was probably during the cake cutting ceremony when the bride lost her footing and fell right into the cake, knocking the entire cake to the floor, getting cake icing all over her dress, she was just embarassed, upset, angry and she wanted blood. Since bring the photographer, aside from the groom, I was the closest to her, she just started yelling at me…. It was a nightmare!

Oh well, I got some great photos of a bride face down in Canolli filling out of it… LOL
