I shot a wedding video on private property owned by the bride and I was hired by the bride. During my editing, I could see a woman looking at my camera while talking to two other guests. My camera’s mic picked up her saying, and I quote: “I mean don’t they ask for permission? There are cameras everywhere.” I have a contract that clearly states the final DVD is for private in home use only.
I have been shooting weddings for over 20 years and have never knowingly ran into this issue. My question is two fold. Should I be getting permission from all guests at weddings and should I point this situation out to the bride and groom so as blur or just not to include these guest in their video.
Thanks for your time and comments, Jamie
