Please know- we’re very biased here. But if you’d like to take our advice on an unplugged wedding- do it 🙂 You have paid for a fabulous photographer and perhaps even a videographer. The last thing you need in the background of your gorgeous photos/videos are PEOPLE TAKING PICTURES. Seriously. It just takes all of the dreamy-ness and romance out of the organic images. We are so thankful
that we get the honor of going through a lot of photos and videos, but it always takes away a bit of the whimsy when we see a bunch of people huddled around, leaning in for a photo. And please, don’t later ask your photographer to photoshop those out- it’s harder than it looks!
Now, the other side of the coin is #wegothitched #johndoewedding. The instagram hashtags for weddings are adorable, but perhaps keep this near the photobooth? Or, after the first dance takes place? There’s a time and place for everything and while we understand you want to share your photos with folks who were unable to attend, they can probably wait a couple of hours, right? Here’s a cute sign to perhaps display as guests enter or grab their programs.
BUT if you’re totally okay with cell phones, you might as well call it what it is and take a selfie 🙂 Take a peek at this one a father took after walking his daughter down the aisle in Sedona…
