Watch: Aerial quadcopter hits groom in the head

A bride and groom were posing for photos and video when their photographer had a mishap with the aerial drone he was using.

Message from the photographer:
"Okay, so here's the story. This was shot using a DJI phantom and a GoPro camera. This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and I brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the groom on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and on the side of his head. I felt horrible. Luckily, the bride and groom were able to laugh about it after and we continued the shoot. At the request of the bride and groom I put the video online."
