....you're busy shooting a wedding and a proper brawl starts

Do you scarper or stay and shoot the scrap?

(vague attempt at an original wedding thread Wink )

Shoot it and add some funny captions. Then if the B&G have calmed down and seemed to be pretty relaxed about it, give them the photos as a separate file.

Shoot it, I read someplace that the pictures of the things that go wrong are treasured and remembered long after the more formal pics end up in the attic and forgotten. and actully become a talking point for years

The word 'shooting' in this context may have several meanings. One is immoral, illegal and ultimately, it won't get you anywhere in the great cycle of life Wink

I've only seen one punch-up at a wedding that I was photographing. Neither participant was a principal player and both were unpleasant thugs so I just ignored it. I'd have had to use flash in the dim lighting and didn't want them both to forget their differences and unite in attacking me. This was in the days when my digital camera had a max ISO of 400!

At a friends wedding many years ago. I was a guest (thankfully) when all hell broke loose between several brothers. It was bound to happen as none of them could stand the sight of each other. Bit of a hoot as it provided some entertainment to a fairly unremarkable day! Wink
