Your wedding is such a special occasion, one that should be of course captured through photography, as a way to hold your memories close to your heart. However, in order to enjoy this special time with your guests, you will certainly not want to be holding a camera, taking photos, and neither should your guests.
Everyone within your wedding should be living in the moment, and if they are focusing on taking photos, they won’t be personally enjoying your festivities.
Here at Photography with Heart & Video, we believe that each guest should have a wonderful time enjoying your big day! That’s why we have gathered some reasons as to why you should have an unplugged wedding. If you are in the process of planning your own big day, be sure to continue reading to gain some insight:
- What is an unplugged wedding? For those of you who are not familiar with what an unplugged wedding is, don’t fret! An unplugged wedding is where you have confidence in your photographer to capture each and every detail of your big day, and ask that your guests do not capture any photos themselves. This way, your guests can focus on your wedding, and involve themselves with all of the entertainment you have planned, rather than taking time to take photos.
- Your privacy will be protected. If your guests are taking photos, chances are that they will be sharing them with others, and possibly even on the internet for the whole world to see. This is your special and intimate day, and your privacy deserves to be respected. Do you want photos floating around of you that may not be professional? Meaning bad quality or that angle that you would prefer not to show? Also, not only will their photos expose you, but your other guests as well. If you have an unplugged wedding, you can have confidence in knowing that only the photos you want shared will be exposed.
- How to inform your guests. Of course, your guests will probably have no idea that you don’t want them to take photos personally unless they are informed. However, you certainly don’t want to make this announcement as you are making your way down the aisle. Consider placing decorated signs among your venue, stating that your wedding is unplugged. Or, you can also include this information as an insert within your invitations, so that your guests can know beforehand.
Every wedding deserves to be respected! If you plan to have an unplugged big day, you can be comfortable knowing that your photos will all be professional. Here at Photography with Heart & Video, we strive to bring your love story to life through photographs.
