Minister stops wedding to scold photographers
“This is a solemn assembly not a photography session.”
A feisty minister made a bit of a scene during a ceremony caught on camera.
While officiating a couple’s wedding ceremony, the minister becomes so annoyed with the photographer’s camera clicks, he tells them, “Please, sirs, leave.”

When one photographer asks where he’d like them to go, the minister responds:
“Anywhere other than here. This is a solemn assembly not a photography session. Please move or I will stop. I will stop the ceremony if you do not get out of the way.”
Meanwhile, the bride and groom take in the awkwardness, and the pastor adds:
“'This is not about photography, this is about God.”
Kamrul Hasan, a commenter who says he was a photographer at the wedding, defended himself via YouTube:
“My job was to capture their event beautifully. My intention wasn’t to kill or hurt anyone with my shutter clicks.”
What do you think of the minister’s reaction — was it appropriate?
