Shotgun wedding: Photographers claim they were shot at after snapping pictures of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen

Thumbnail image for bradygisele.jpgTwo freelance photographers who tried to snap some unauthorized pictures of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's wedding this weekend in Costa Rica claim they were fired at by members of the supermodel's security detail.

Boston.com's eerily long one-paragraph story sets the scene:

INF, the photo agency that hired Rolando Aviles and Uri Cortez, said yesterday the two men "narrowly escaped death" when bullets shattered the back windshield of the duo's Suzuki jeep then hit the vehicle's front window. "Nobody was hurt, but it was very close," an INF spokesman told us today.
If firing bullets at rouge photographers seems like an entirely inappropriate response to you, one of the men who escaped death agrees.

Cortez said he was shocked. "I couldn't believe it when I realized what they had done," he told the photo agency. "I could have lost my life for the sake of some pictures that Gisele didn't want published. Are they insane?"

People also has the gritty details on the couple's second wedding ceremony, but there is no mention of the shooting.
