Wedding Photographer Arrested After Allegedly Having Sex With Guest, Urinating in Public, and Threatening Police

A wedding photographer took more than pictures when she was allegedly discovered having sex with a guest during a wedding in Weatherford, Texas on November 24, 2018. 

Some people are more difficult than others to get to smile, but an Arlington, Texas-based photographer may have gone too far according to a story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Instead of focusing on the bride and groom, things apparently clicked with wedding photographer Katherine Mehta and another person as she was allegedly discovered having sex at the Springs Events in Weatherford, Texas. It is unknown whether it was a dark room. 

Guests then notified an off-duty Parker County Sheriff's deputy who zoomed in to confront the overexposed photographer. After leaving the room where she was having sex, Mehta walked to a fountain where more problems began to develop. She began to yell, then walked to a tree to urinate before being arrested for placing her "watermark."

Sheriff's deputies placed Mehta in a patrol car, but before arriving at jail, the report says she threatened police officers: “Y’all families will be dead by Christmas, y’alls daughters are dead. My dad is going to find out about this, and y’all are (expletive) dead. D-E-A-D," the report said. 

Newsweek is reporting that a woman who claims to be Mehta's sister says her drink was spiked before she made it to the wedding and that she was defending herself against unwanted advances from two men, and it was her yelling and attempts to get help as well as being ill from the spiked drink that were misconstrued.

Mehta faces charges for public intoxication and obstruction/retaliation. She is free after posting over $10,000 in bail.

What a fucking useless article, written to slut shame first then actually provide info on WHY she is in legal trouble.

We get to the unlawful actions about 60% in the article. And why the fuck does a deputy "zooms" to the situation when an adult is fucking another one? Really?

Fucking ass backwards place this is...

Yes, she behave unlawfully. But instead of focusing on that, the article takes is sweet time making funny puns and has 2 sentences about her public urination and threats. No mention (as others say) that she pleaded being drugged either.

Fstoppers should be ashamed of copying such sexists articles.

Awesome slut-shaming, Fstoppers.

Conveniently omitting her side, where she claims she was drugged.

Delete this crap.

Similar to the rest of our world today, there are way too many people here on Fstoppers who are just dead set on being offended and outraged. Chill out, y’all. This article just reported about a story that’s circulating right now that has to do with a photographer. Where is the slut shaming? Again… Chill. Everything is going to be all right.

She's claimed she was drugged by two men, and this article refers to this being consensual. It may not have been, which is why playing lightly with phrases like "a photographer took more than pictures" and "things apparently clicked" are in poor taste.

Tim Ericsson's picture

Edit: She hasn't claimed anything yet, but someone who says she is the photographer's sister has said she was drugged.

"Where is the slut shaming?" If you can't spot it in this article (which is 100% slut shaming for the exception of 2-3 sentences) I pity the women in your life...

I've just lost all respect for not only this photographer, but Fstoppers allowing this trash on here without stating all of the facts. What a pathetic piece of drivel to read. Hope you're proud of your literary 'accomplishments' and misogynistic shit spewing.

Lee , Patrick, David... you guys approve of this bullshit being posted on here? I think I'm done with Fstoppers after this.

what facts from the original articles in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Newsweek are missing from the blog post here?

she was witnessed having sex with a guest, intoxicated, peed on a tree, threatened the cops and in legal possession of xanax. those are the only facts and were listed in the warrant, both news articles, and in the blog post above.

granted, the tone of the blog post is clearly that of someone trying to be snarky and witty with the puns in a rather inappropriate display, but there are no facts left out. her sister's statement isn't "fact" as it's conjecture due to contradicting statements by witnesses and at least one cop.

Crystal Johnson's picture

You didn't read it in it's original form where it did NOT list anything about the two men harassing her, groping her, or her drink being spiked. Only after hours of it being up was it edited, and by another staff writer.

In what article has it been written that what her sister mentioned did not happen? Newsweek, Fox, that cheesy rag mag... all state the same thing and nothing about witnesses recounting something different.

This type of crappy journalism doesn't really belong on here. The author obviously lacks the integrity to give out all information, just goes for click-bait titles and filthy commentary.

As previously said, this was written more than a dozen hours before that Newsweek article was printed. I searched extensively for more information when it was written and was not able to find any more details.

As more information comes to light we will update it and I will gladly give Ms. Mehta a chance to voice her side of the store if she so chooses. None of the things you referenced are in the police report nor have they been verified.

Edit: This was written and sent to the editors a good DAY before it was published. I did not have the benefit of other articles besides the police report and the Star-Telegram article at the time of submission.

Crystal Johnson's picture

I was going to post a really bitchy reply, but I won't. I'll just mention that there are articles that were published a good DAY before yours that had the entire situation listed.

Not an article i believe belongs on this website. - just my opinion

michaeljin's picture

Umm... what?

Wow. Just wow. If this were about a male photographer you would all laugh and shake your head. Instead, you people are calling her a shameful slut. I expect trash in the comment section, but this is truly over the line.

Surprised this is making the rounds that it is.. It is an unfortunate turn of events, especially since she has a younger daughter.

Meet someone you like at a wedding, go back to your home or hotel room and have sex and no one would care.

Have sex during the wedding in a room that you can't secure that opens to the entire venue and that is somewhat noteworthy (I've been to that venue, every room opens to the reception hall.)

bitches be crazy

Quick question, what does her having sex with someone have to do with anything? I mean, the majority of the article is about her having sex, then as almost an addendum you mention, peeing and yelling. Yet, the only actual crimes she committed, which are questionable due to her side stating she was drugged unwillingly, public drunkenness and obstruction.

Just find it odd that the whole thing focuses on the things that don't really have anything to do with her arrest. If anything, this article should be titled and read as, Wedding Photog Arrested After Drunken Outrage & Public Urination. Then you could've at least taken a more journalistic stance, but hey, as it is with most writers nowadays, low hanging fruit and catchy clickbait titles, along with an incredible lack researched "facts" and a slant of shaming someone really gets all the clicks, so at least you managed that.

what does her having sex with someone have to do with all of this?

quick answer: well, it was the action that began the whole fiasco.

it was this act that was witnessed by another guest, who then sought the off-duty cop working as security for the event to report it. the rest of her actions occurred after this point.

BTW, the blog posts on the main page of fstoppers are all posted by bloggers, not journalists, and not even by the tiniest stretch. they just regurgitate photography related news and youtube videos they believe are relevant.

at least Thomas left out her "Max McIntyre" Instagram account and that she is a self-proclaimed former Miss Texas (she isn't).

Jeff Walsh's picture

I understand that was the trigger of the events, but as I said, over half the written words are about that alone. Also, since this is presented as "news" blogger or whatever, at its foundation it is journalism. Just because the writer does non journalistic writing doesn't mean they're free from reporting facts.

The truth is, the whole thing was nothing but trash clickbait, from title to closing, it was trash. Hell, it wasn't even properly vetted before posting.

Honestly, if you took both accounts into conciderstion, the real story here could be that you should really watch who gives you a drink. And that being in public in what you feel is a safe environment could still be extremely dangerous.

half assed article with little info of her side. for shame fs

I actually feel bad for her.

Jan Kruize's picture

Well this is news..... come on this is a site about photography and that kind of things. fstoppers is going lower and lower.

JetCity Ninja's picture

well, she IS a model and photographer...

David Van Tuyl's picture

What a bullshit article... Get it together Fstoppers! Keep this kind of garbage content off of your otherwise awesome website.

JetCity Ninja's picture

i'm betting she spiked a guest's drink with xanax and raped him.

user-187388's picture

I think it is deplorable to cover this story. .Poor judgement on behalf of you guys to publish this. No one should be laughing and making puns at a situation like this even if there is some truth in it.

Bruce Allen's picture

Was her drink spiked? Was it the Xanax? Is she even a good photog?!
I made a video going deeper into this unsolved mystery...

It seems wrong to make fun of her in the article, then only show her side of the facts in the end. You can do that after the investigation is completed and she's been found guilty. But if she indeed was drugged against her will, it's a very sad story you shouldn't make fun of.
