    I was flown in, to do an event and picked up by a driver the next morning at my hotel. Fifteen minutes before the event, my driver tells me that he is lost!!!!

    I was at a wedding and the paid photographers didn't show up on time so I shot the whole ceremony.

    I've only done two weddings, my second had a notice of several months. My first however, I had about 3 days notice. I haven't crammed info like that since I was in college! Talk about doing some reading! Fortunately, the wedding was outdoors and the light was nice, so I got some really good shots.

    not as the first shooter, but I got a frantic call from a buddy asking if I could second shoot in an hour. His assistant bailed at the last minute.

    LOL I lucked out. This one turned out to be as close to an elopement as you can get and still be in a church. They were both widowed and wanted the barest minimum- guests, time, everything. I had a a hard time getting them to stay long enough for some standard poses.

    It was fun seeing a pair of 60~70 year-olds acting like kids. :lol::lol:

    A worthwhile endeavor!

    I had this happen once. I shot the bride so they called the wedding off.
