To be truthfully honest Halloween kinda scares me. Definitely its fun to see all the little kids dressed up and the creativity come out, but this girl is completely afraid of the gore and guts. I have never been a fan of scary movies either, meaning I am still scared of E.T. That nerdy bit aside, this halloween wedding holds one of my most hilarious and embarrassing moments ever.
During a wedding reception, my assistant and I almost always try to find a “spot” a place for our stuff. Water, camera bags, jackets and sometimes we end up taking 5 minute breaks in the in between so setting up camp is a necessity. At this wedding we had a spot in a room in the front of the reception hall. There were a lot of things in the room, but it was secluded which is just what we needed to take a breather here and there and to have a home base of sorts. The wedding was wonderful and after a full day of shooting outside we were ready for a warm up and the scrumptious meal we had been smelling all afternoon. After we got our plates, we were going to grab our bags before we sat down. I opened the door to our home base with my back since I had my camera in one hand and my plate full of Italian in the other. As I turned into the room I got the biggest halloween trick of the night when I saw…
Grandpa. In. his. UNDERPANTS. We are talking pants on the GROUND, people.
I froze and screamed at the same time. I can’t believe I didn’t toss my whole plate of food. All of the grandkids were right outside the door so they had a front row seat for the show. Needless to say, the whole hallway was roaring. Grandpa just looked up and grinned. I shut the door as fast as possible while yelling, I am soooorrrrry. And seriously laughed so hard, I was literally crying. We tried to eat for the next hour and could barely put food in our mouths with out the giggles.
So, needless to say, this wedding always holds a special place in my heart….and I ALWAYS knock before I open any doors. 🙂
