Just reading articles in Google Reader!
While I really have no “wedding experience” I feel like this is just an obvious no no!
Part of me feels that I will become all bridezilla and refuse pictures. I have a photographer, thank you. I do not want anyone to have any pictures of me that I don’t approve of. Seriously and do not put them on your public social networking site!

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
I think you copied the wrong link, because that article doesn’t match yo’ comments. :p
But I totally agree. I also don’t want anybody screwing up my photographer’s work by trying to play picture hawk.

I kind of like people taking pics at my wedding. Got some photos in before the photog 🙂 I don’t mind mine being on social networking websites though. I posted a TON myself! Sometimes the flash of other cameras does screw up some pics, but ah well.

Haha, that is a funny pic.
We are adding a blurb in our program requesting no photography during our ceremony but after that it’s fair game. I want to get through the formals quickly though so I don’t want all the guests to hold it up. We’re doing most of our formals in a separate and secluded location.

I was glad that people actually took the pictures they did, and I wish I could get a hold of more pictures but people don’t seem to want to give them up! Anyway, I was glad people took pictures because there were photos they got that my photographer either missed or forgot to get. Shoot, I have better detail pictures from a cousin than I did my photographer and my photographer didn’t take any of us outside my grandma’s house when we were about to leave, so if my godmother hadn’t taken those pictures I wouldn’t have any alone picture with my mom or dad from my whole wedding day.

Is it that you don’t want amateurs screwing up/getting in the way of the professional? Or do you really just not want them taking photos?
I’m an amateur/hobbyist photographer and whenever I go to weddings I take my nice camera and try to get some really great shots. I know they have a photog– but everyone has their own perspective and I’ve had a lot of people thank me for the shots I send them! That being said, I would NEVER be obtrusive or get in the way of the real photographer. So, If you just want to make sure they don’t get in the way thats cool. But if you really don’t want people taking your photo you’ll probably have to tell them that… and also… why not?

I do think it’s rude for people (other than the photographer) to take flash photographs during the ceremony — but if they turn off the flash, I say why not? And during formals and the reception, as long as they aren’t getting in the photographer’s way, I also think it’s fine. I will probably ask my friends not to post any public albums on Facebook, but I don’t mind them sharing the photos among friends. The photographer can’t be everywhere at once, so I think it’ll be nice to have candids from other people.

I have no problem with having as many photos taken as possible on the big day. I think the picture in the link was pretty funny and would be very cute in an album.

haha that’s a pretty funny picture. I think its inevitable…. but it can be obnoxious for sure

My parents are serious photogs so I won’t be able to stop them, but what I hate is when you get a great pic but each person’s eyes are looking at a different camera and it ruins it! Everyone needs to simmer down until after the ceremony!

To be honest the pictures I got from my guests have been better and more candid than the ones I paid for. I’m happy I didn’t stop people from taking pics. It held me over til my pro pics were done and I actually like them better.

I actually kind of hope this happens at my reception! I know I’m going to be jone-sing for pictures way before my photog has them ready for me, so I hope there’s tons of candids!

This happens at almost every wedding we do! Our most recent wedding on the blog has an image of the wedding paparazzi. 🙂
