i’ve been to a few weddings where there were chuppah holders.  yes, there are extra people but the photog will have to move around more to get pictures.  it did not block the view from the guest’s perspective.

we are having a stationary chuppah.  florist were too expensive to rent.

i bought a 8×8 white tent at Ollies for $25 and i am draping my great grandmother’s veil and father’s talit over it.

At my son’s wedding, they had the parents be chuppah holders.  There was no real issue for the photographer, as the four poles were thin enough they didn’t really cover anything.  Actually, the one issue was for us.  If the poles had been rested on the ground, they wouldn’t have been long enough to keep the chuppah over everyone’s heads.  So we had to hold the bottoms of the poles up, which became pretty tiring.

We are having chuppah holders 🙂 I don’t think it will be difficult for the photographer.

@nawella:  You’ll probably need to do a bit of experimenting on the pole height.  The fabric will be a bit lower at the center of the chuppah than at the poles, and the amount of the difference will depend on the size of the chuppah, and the weight of the fabric.  You’d obviously want to make sure that the lowest point of the fabric is higher than the height of the tallest person under it.
