How to spot a Wedding Death Trap
See the wires running from the columns to the plug in the middle of the altar without the wires being secured with tape??
See the four columns supporting a massive arch thingy in three pieces NONE OF WHICH are attached to each other, just barely resting on said columns?
Notice the rigged stairs with a slippery satiny covering on slick plywood?
I wish I'd known all this yesterday morning!
I brought the whole thing down before the wedding even started.
The overhead thing hit my back and *then* broke the plywood... The bride runs off crying... No one has any advil, and my back and leg are bruised by flying plastic.
WHY DO I SHOOT WEDDINGS?!?! Someone please remind me!! I think I need to take up nature photography.
Oh! and they said they'd have to pay me next week.
More details to come.
