Step Away From the Cell Phone

Want really amazing photos at your next event where there are guests (i.e. wedding, birthday party, etc.)? Ask your guests to put their phones away!  I just heard you gasp. But, this is your event.  One of the biggest issues that photographers have to deal with in today’s technology age is working around the smartphone camera.

We are constantly bombarded with phones and tablets above the crowd, in our line of sight and right in the way of the beautiful bride and groom.  We’ve all seen it: Aunt Sally jumps into the aisle during the bridal party walk or Cousin Joe photo bombs the birthday boy for a selfie.  We, the photographers, go in for the perfect shot and just as we stand up, we get knocked on the noggin’ with an iPad.

It is not impolite to politely ask your guests to put their phones in their vehicles, and leave them there, so everyone can enjoy the day. Trust that you hired the right photographer and assure your guests they will have the opportunity to purchase beautiful, smartphone free photos that they will love for years to come.  The day will run more smoothly, your photographer will be happier, therefore taking better photos, and everyone will enjoy being present in the moment.
