It happens every now and then with things I say ;-)

Also, make sure it's understood with all parties involved
(bride/groom/families) who has priority, if there are other photographers or
a videographer.  If I am shooting, I always REQUIRE that I have priority,
and it's not negotiable, though it's never been questioned luckily.  I
always try to talk to the other photographer/videographer also, and in a
nice way broach that subject and make sure it's understood.  I've done
probably a few hundred weddings, and never had a problem in that regard,
it's a good thing to learn to play nice with them, as they can certainly do
you many favors.

The only problem I've had has been when I was NOT the hired photographer, I
once thought (after the fact) that I got in the pro's way getting some
particular shots, and did apologize to him...but he said he hadn't
noticed...I think he was being nice.
