Everyone loves weddings and pictures of the event. Instead of thinking about the photographer and the problems that their picture taking causes they run around taking pictures often ruining those amazing moments. So how do you deal with it?
Some photographers include a “no cameras allowed” clause in their contract, although the bride and groom may be unable to enforce this with the relatives and friends. It may be better, especially for brides and groom who have websites, to write a short blurb explaining to the guests how to avoid messing up the couple’s shots.
Hillary Harvey on Best Hudson Valley Wedding Ever encourages people to take pictures of things that the photographer is not taking pictures of as those are lost moments that will otherwise not be caught on film. Even better is simply asking guests to turn off their flash. This can be done in the program keeping the tone light. What have you experienced from amateur photographers at wedding you have shot?
