@joya_aspera:  you apparently haven’t met my family. I have aunts, who did asked even nicely, to please refrain would make it a point to find out that photographers name and bad mouth them. I think photographers meet with more hostility than you think. It’s a hard job, my point is why not make it easier?

@Atlanticbride:  I’m sorry to hear that. I would certainly not ask my photographer to approach anyone I thought would respond rudely to them or cause them grief. You’re right, in that kind of situation, it’s our responsibilty, as the bride, to address it. I’m not expecting anyone to get in unpleasant discussions on my behalf.

I just do expect my photographer to enthusiastically get in there, wherever the action is happening, as much as possible, and when a problem with a simple solution that I haven’t noticed is occuring (MOB is hugging me with a smartphone on her hand, and distinctly not giving off the impression that she will bite anyone’s head off), that the photographer would react like anyone else with common sense would and use their voice to make a polite suggestion. If MOB refuses, that’s hardly the photographer’s fault. I don’t expect miracles, but yes, I’m planning to pay to expect professional competence.

@joya_aspera:  I’ll have to respectfully disagree. Wedding photography is so fast paced. Your photographer has no time to style your guests. How is she supposed to authentically shoot  emotion on a date is she’s styling your guests. How real are photos when your photograoher has to yell ” cut” , fix things and then have people ” restart” the realness. That just doesn’t work. I want my photographer concentrating on lighting, timing and anticipating emotion, not how to get around my 300 pound nephew in the middle of the aisle.

While I get the point of it and would love more unplugged! Id like it more unplugged for the disconnection factor and social media obsession over getting in my way…

Its not going away and its my job to deal with the best I can. And I do. I bust there chops if they get in my way! lol Its always in a fun way and most people dont realize they are in the way. The social media posting though… that Irks my nerves you’d even have to ask people not to post pictures of you all over the net!! Specially when you havent even seen them yet! Like seriously can they have their first kiss before their picture is all over facebook???
