    We’ll be having an unplugged wedding Ceremony. Besides seeing the photos of all the guests looking through their phones and cameras, I also want everyone to be present and be there with us. Our photographer said she would have a couple of ceremony pics ready for friends and fam within a day or two so they can have those instead of insisting on taking thier own photos.

    I will probably have no flash photography. I don’t mind guests taking pictures but I do not want them to use flash and risk messing up the professional photographers pictures. And I will have the aisle blocked on both sides so that no one but the professional photographer can get up and down the aisle.

    @anonymous2121:  We didn’t do this, and everything worked out great in the end.  Plus, I have to say, I really enjoyed seeing other people’s photos, and to be honest, there were a few shots that our photographer didn’t even capture (to no fault of hers, just time and place) that I love.  IMO, it’s nice to have more people taking photos – more chance of getting shots that you will love for a lifetime! That being said, I totally understand the need to go unplugged – go with your gut, it’s telling you what you’d prefer! 🙂

    I definitely plan to “risk it” with a professional photographer/videographer.

    I’m not having this and I dont understand why adults need to be told what to do. I would respect someone’s wishes if they had an “unplugged” ceremony. During the reception I would want to take my own pictures.

    We’re having an “unplugged” ceremony. We have WAY too many hobby photographers in our family/friends to do it any other way. Otherwise all of our loved ones will be too concerned about getting the perfect shot to pay any attention. 

    I don’t want to get back all of my professional pictures and all I see is a sea of camera lenses instead of faces. 🙁

    We had an unplugged ceremony. Almost everyone respected it. Once I got our photos back I was really happy with the results.
