I appreciate the tips, but honestly, I’m paying several thousand dollars for a photographer, and I’m going to take as many portraits of people as I please.  I don’t need a million candids of the dance floor…I want pictures of the guests, and if my great aunt wants a portrait, I’ll take one with her without rudely telling her to use her own camera.

Oh boy. Photographers giving advice, good or bad, here is almost always frowned upon. Just a heads up.

@abbie017 – Sheesh, calm down a bit. Nothing she said was rude whatsoever. Everything she said was legitimate advice.

Thank you, Christiana2013!

I have to say I appreciate the advice. Makes me assured that I am doing things correctly. I would never tell childhood babysitter to get her own camera (because that is tacky, the photog needs to take the photos that we paid for) though. #3 isn’t really the best advice. I have disagree–family portraits are very important to certain people, and we will remember if everyone got in the pictures with my FI’s 95 year old grandma.

However, we are having pics before the ceremony to ensure enough time, which IMO is a good idea. We have 2 locations: at the Capitol building (bridal party and parents only–which will elimate the need for Uncle Bob to want his own photos and since we are on a strict time schedule with the limo there won’t be much leeway for anyone’s photos except the photogs) and at the church, which is everyone else. We left about an hour and a half for that.
