Why You Should Have An Unplugged Wedding
Being a part of a couples special day is an honor that should not be overshadowed by the guest using his/her cellphones. With just about everyone having a cell phone nowadays, it is easy to see more than half of the guests on their phones, taking pictures or tweeting about the wedding. A lot of couples, especially those here in Tampa Bay are opting to have unplugged weddings.
As a photographer, I love unplugged weddings. Why? I have files full of beautiful photographs that have been ruined because someone stood up with their iPhone or worst yet their iPad in the middle of the ceremony.
I think the best thing about having an unplugged wedding is that your guest is actually present during the ceremony instead of engaged with their phones. I instruct my brides let their guest save their cell phones for the reception. After all, you hired a professional photographer to capture and tell your story.
