Has anyone ever done a shoot for money, and messed it up?

I assited this guy at weddings and he told me a story once about how he used to use a twin reflex lens camera. (In case you don't know what that is, it was a popular camera at one time. It has two lenses that line up vertically on the front of the camera. One lens is for viewing, the other actually has the shutter, to take the picture) Well, he took the cap off so he could see the wedding party through the viewfinder, and he did the whole shoot that way. But, he left the cap on the important lens; the one that actually captures the image.

He said he really felt bad and he had to call the client and break the news.

Anyone else have any situations like that?

I want to find out what kinds of things to expect and think about ways to mitigate errors. Especially if I'm getting paid.

Professionals should not make mistakes.
