Photographer wants couples to ban smart phones at their wedding

An irate photographer has taken a shot at trigger happy guests who wield their smartphones at weddings, taking ‘crap’ pictures and ‘ruining’ official photographs. Thomas Stewart, from NSW, wrote a long rant on his Facebook page, accusing wedding guests of being too eager to flash their iPhones and iPads instead of enjoying the moment.

He said pictures taken by guests were ‘usually crap’ anyway, and wedding ceremonies should be technology-free and ‘completely unplugged’. Lol

‘They [guests] have no idea how to stay out of our way. They often ruin many of our shots. They will make our photos worse,’ he said in his Facebook diatribe.
‘Imagine you're in the middle of your wedding ceremony. You're elated,’ Mr Stewart continued.
‘You decide to take a quick glance towards your guests as you're sure they're sharing these happy moments with you, possibly even shedding a tear of their own. What do you see? NO FACES AT ALL AS THEY ARE ALL HIDDEN BEHIND PHONES AND CAMERAS!’

D guy is totally correct, recent weddings are just an avenue 4 people show how expensive their gadget are rather than enjoying the moment.

Jules Louis said...

He said the simple truth. Couple of months back, my son was graduating and d parents didn't allow d kids perform well. They just crowded everywhere taking useless pictures alongside d camera men they paid to do d job. I just don't get it! The kids were just staring and smiling at their moms who were screaming "chuchu smile" "bobo smile now" instead of performing. tsheww

Yep!! I agree. People tend to take unnecessary pics that eventually clogs up their phone memories. Leave the pics to be taken by the professionals

Lara Akinola said...

You are right! No phone pictures on my wedding day o! Allow a Professional Photographer! Very Annoying!

Miss Peprika said...

I totally agree with this photographer!

Nelson Joshua said...

Yeah! I'm also sick & tired of this mess we face while working. Many guests turn themselves to photographers, rendering a free service, but disrupting the paid photographer's job. It's so annoying, pls let's all learn to give professionals the chance to perform their duties well. Stay blessed. 'Foto & Thingz by Nelson Joshua'

Some of the wedding guests go push you comot sef.

Its not about being selfish.... If you know how artistic it is to capture these most special moments in peoples life!... You won't say that... But I won't blame you

In years to come, we will not be needing photographers in our occasions again.
