Why It’s Important For Guests To Unplug At Your Wedding
This Is Why Guests need to Unplug at Your Wedding
In such a tech-engaged time, it’s hard to get people’s attention on what’s going on in front of them… unless they’re trying to capture an Instagram of it or share it on social media. When it comes to weddings, it seems like everyone is the photographer, or at least trying to be. All the guests are fighting over the best angle to capture the best photo. Which is hurting the most important person from actually getting the shot, your photographer!
If you’re hiring a photographer for your wedding. Here are the top five reasons why you should have your guests go unplugged (you’ll be so glad you did).
It will give you the best shots
Amateur photographers (a.k.a. any wedding guest with a cell phone or a DSLR). Are going to try to capture the same shot as the photographer. Many will do whatever it takes to get it. Even if that means standing in the aisle and completely blocking the photographer. When you look back on your wedding, you want to see the photos of yourselves and your guests. Not what the picture looks like through the iPhone screen of the person blocking your photographer!
Essential moments can be ruined by guest photography
You only get one first look, one chance to put the ring on each other’s finger, and one first kiss. If a guest blocks the photographer from taking these photos, you can’t get those moments back. Now all the couple has of that is a crappy cell phone photo or the one from Uncle Bob with his HUGE flash on the camera. Such a mood destroyer.
Cell phone or digital camera flashes can ruin a professional shot
If guests are flashing here and there like the paparazzi, those lights can negatively affect photos. Making them so white and washed out, that even Photoshop can’t save them. Not even funny!
Leave it to the professionals
Chances are, you won’t see your guests’ photos again unless they become a small, over-filtered Instagram that you’re tagged in. You’re guaranteed to have your photographer’s photos for years to come. Professional photographers know what moments to capture and what angles work best. Help your photographers help you by asking guests to go tech-free and saving everyone a headache.
Remind guests that the photographer’s photos can and will be shared with them
Email, photo sharing apps and sites make giving your guests access to your photos easy. One way to soothe guests’ fear they won’t get to see any images, is to tell them a link will be sent to all guests. Getting a link to professional photos will be more fun to look back on than a bunch of blurry photos in their iPhone camera roll.
Going unplugged will help your photographer capture the moments you’ve hired them to get. More so, leave the guests to focus on what’s important that day, the two of you starting your new life together!
