Why You Should Have An Unplugged Wedding
Unplugging Your Wedding
Why you should have an unplugged wedding? It’s a question we are often asked as the wedding plans start to come together. Being a part of a couple’s 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.
Benefits of an Unplugged Wedding
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 to let their guest save their cell phones for the reception. Reminding them that they are more than welcome to whip out their phones and capture all of the fun at the reception. Especially, the dance floor. After all, you hired a professional photographer to capture and tell your story. Informing your guest to focus on capturing the candid shots throughout the rest of your wedding day.
