This week, we're all about the crazy- so my question of the week is:
What's the FUNNIEST thing that has happened to you during a shoot?

: I got pooped on by a bird shooting a wedding- on my head. I asked the bridesmaids to do the fake laugh thing but they were already laughing because a bird pooped… on my head! I'm not sure if that's funny or just embarrassing!

: There was a huge snow storm, and we [my clients and I] were meeting at a super remote location. The couple was there, so we both got out, exchanged hugs, and talked about how excited we were to meet each other and shoot! Then I said her name… which wasn't her name. And she said mine… which wasn't mine! They had picked the same very random location as we did. Their photographer never showed up, and neither did our couple (snow was bad?) so we made a new friend.

: I was on one of my very first shoots- Extreeeeemely nervous! My clients were a girl I had gone to high school with, her new baby, her 10 year old son, and her husband- who I was meeting for the first time at the session. She was telling me that her husband had had a couple of beers to try and calm down because he is so shy and she was afraid his face would be red from blushing. I am so NOT a shy person, and I knew I needed to “scale back” a bit to give him some space.I finally got him the teeniest bit comforable while talking about his new baby. I set up the entire family sitting on the ground, with the brother holding the baby. I stepped forward to adjust the baby's outfit and BAM! I slipped and fell… and landed ON THE HUSBAND- literally straddling him with my tatas IN HIS FACE. He turned bright red, his wife is dying laughing, and I'm in tears, embarrassed as all get out, and apologizing profusely. I'm trying to get up, recompose myself, and the wife starts razzing me about “attacking” her husband. He was laughing, then says “I gotta say… this is the best d@mn photo shoot I've ever been on!” I've shot their annual family photos ever since.

I was in charge of getting the bride and groom's recessional. No problem. Get into position, start clicking away while backing up, forget about a sign and went flying backwards on my butt. The camera went one way, and my dress went in it's own direction- up, over my head! To make it worse, EVERYONE at the wedding saw me laying there in my Spanx, because the groom left the bride standing in the aisle to make sure I was okay and help me up. Now normally, I am a huge fan of chivalry, but just this once I wish he hadn't been a gentleman and walked right past so I could have crawled into a hole!

: Oh I win. At last week's wedding my strapless dress slipped down without me realizing and the girls came out for a show- for I don't know, 45 minutes? #peepshow #channelingjanetjackson

Wow- that's all I can say.The funniest thing that has happened to me while shooting is having the bride sniff the groom's butt…Oh wait. Did I mention it was a DOG WEDDING?! The bride's name was Betty Boop, and she was a prize winning Shih Tzu. Also- it was a “shotgun wedding” since the uh, bride was already expecting her first litter, so we had to shoot before she wouldn't fit in her dress. She had attendants and everything. Good times… and the only time you can call the bride the B-word to her face and get away with it. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up.
Don't judge me- this was a long time ago. AND IT'S A DOG WEDDING!
