Unplugged weddings are trending day by day. The ability to have an unplugged wedding where only the photographer is taking pictures is the demand of the wedding couple. It is not nice to always have to have pictures where your guests are having a camera device in their hands and blocking the photographer, or worst of all to have flashes from other cameras disturbing your photographer.
The purpose of hiring in the photographer is to have nice pictures and devote some time to professional taking pictures. It is not nice having to spend time with almost all of your guests taking individual pictures because it takes too much time from enjoying your wedding.
Prohibiting using cameras throughout your wedding or a certain time during your wedding allows everyone to be able to spend time with each other and actually create and enjoy meaningful moments. Make your choice, it is your day! Do you really want pictures to be ruined or put on social media without your knowledge?
There are many ways to prevent guests from taking photos:
1. State in your invites that it is an unplugged wedding and briefly state what that means.
2. Give your guests additional reminders
