So should you have an unplugged wedding ceremony? That really depends on what is important to you. Have you spent thousands of dollars on a professional photographer? If so, then you may want to kindly ask your guests to refrain from having their phones and flashes on during your ceremony. How do you even start to tell everyone that? All you can do is before your ceremony begins, simply have your officiant make a small statement before they proceed with your ceremony. They can say something like “Jon and Ashley are so happy you were able to join them for their special day, they would be so pleased if they can have your full attention and they ask that you put your phones and cameras away for the duration of the ceremony, as they have a professional photographer documenting their special moments. It’s not a lot to ask, after all this is your day. I have seen an array of things that can go wrong as a result of people trying to capture their own shot. Here are the top reasons why you may want to consider an unplugged ceremony.
- Professional photographers shot can be compromised, due to people leaning in to get a better shot.
- Other camera and phone flashes will alter your Pro photographers image, by leaving hot spots, green spots and ugly flash light that can distort a white gown and skin.
- Not being able to identify guests as they have their camera or phone up near their face. This obstructs the photographers shot of your guests.
- Also the unwanted sound effects of snapping and ringtones during your ceremony.
- Attention should be on the bride and groom during this beautiful exchange of vow’s.
- Your photographer knows what they are doing, they are trained and have an eye for what shots are important.
