Have you ever heard of UNPLUGGED WEDDINGS? Unplugged weddings encourage guests to put down their phones and mobile devices in order for them to be fully immersed in sharing the moment with family and friends instead of watching it from behind their tiny screens. Unplugged weddings are beneficial for your guests, you, and the professionals you hire to capture your wedding day on film.
Flashes and guest photography can be particularly detrimental to your professional photographs and video. Professional photographs of important moments can be ruined by flashes that wash out a photograph, making it too bright to even see the bride in her white dress. In addition, they can leave large shadows in the backgrounds of your photos making the scene look badly lit and awkward. Another function of some cameras that can potentially ruin your professional photographs is the red or green focus beam.
An additional hazard of guest photographers is the chance that they inadvertently block the shot of both the videographer and photographer who have just one chance to capture such important moments as your first kiss and procession down the aisle. In ceremony locations like church sanctuaries, it is particularly difficult when a guest steps into the aisle to get a photo or video. They draw attention to themselves in the photo that is supposed to be capturing your moment.
After the ceremony, your photographer will usually bring you aside to take family photos, and if other guests bring their cameras, there could be confusion as to which one your family will look at. You don’t want wandering eyes in your professional photos; you want everyone looking in the same direction.
Most importantly, as mentioned above, your guests should be free to enjoy the celebration without distraction. The photographer you have carefully selected and paid for will capture your memories and do the work they’re trained to do. You’ll want to remember the looks on your friends and family’s faces when you walk down the aisle not be disappointed by photos of guests holding their devices up in the air.
