BRING BACK THE AGE OF DISPOSABLE CAMERA’S

Do you remember the days when wedding table would be covered in disposable cameras for guests to use to capture random aspects of the wedding? Nah, neither do I.

We live in the age of the smartphone. Where every person has an electronic device attached to their hand, generally in front of their face, trying the capture the moment they’re in rather than actually enjoying it.

We want to be the first to upload a photo, shout our praises, snap a pointless selfie, because well we’re ‘just so hot’ and the world needs to know it..and when it comes to someone’s wedding, its just not cool anymore.

Here’s three reasons why:

1 – THE BRIDE WANTS TO SEE YOUR FACE

When I walk down the aisle, I know I want to look at all the people in my world and be thankful for their general existence. I want to capture their faces watching and the emotion that is there. I don’t want to be staring at a sea of phone’s all peeping out of the aisle to try and take a photo.

There is a professional photographer for a reason, and there’s time for photo’s later. You’ll get your chance, just don’t lose the moment by focusing on the hundreds of people who aren’t present at the wedding. Focus on the most important people, the bride and groom.

2 – YOU WILL RUIN THE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS

When the photographer is trying to snap the wedding, they want to snap guests not phone’s. Put it away. Be present.

3 – ITS NOT YOUR RIGHT TO UPLOAD PHOTO’S FIRST

It’s not your wedding, and yes you may be happy for your friend, sister, mother, brother etc. But show them you’re happy for them, by being happy for them. Hug them, yes, take a snap a bit later, yes, but the wedding and its beauty is being captured already.

We’re all guilty of too many pics sometimes, but to be honest, when the wedding day rolls on through, you won’t want to remember the still moments behind your phone. Make some real memories for they’ll stay with you forever.
