I know for my photographer has in her contract no other photos during the ceremony..  So maybe check with your photographer on their rules as they are taking pictures?

I think it is stipulated in many photo contracts that they have to be the major photographer that day. I would tell your FFIL and FBIL to chill out on the picture taking that day… diplomatically of course.

@Nola: I would ask him to not leave his seat. I can’t tell you how many pictures I see of just people in the way of photographers. I mean sure, they can be photoshopped out, but it shouldn’t have to come to that in the first place.

My photographer had a clause in the contract that there wasn’t supposed to be any other professional photographer taking pictures; I think that clause probably has to do with them earning money, but it also is about what you’re saying – who calls the shots, not having anyone get in the paid photog’s way, etc.

I think you need to sit down with FFIL and have a discussion about respecting the boundaries of the professional photog, and not getting in their way, since you are paying him/her a lot of money to take these pictures.

Im not a photog but I know that if I was working and someone nosed in and got in my way, I would be very, very annoyed.

@Sassygrn: & @ddw: same, my photog has a clause that says they’ll be the only ones working the event. just cite that and see if that gets them to back off?
