Without being a bossy Bride.
How to keep your Wedding Guests off their phones and just enjoy the day. Have you seen it? The beautiful venue, all the happy and dressed up guests waiting eagerly for the doors to open and the blushing bride to appear and start her walk to her awaiting groom. Then Boom! All those eager people bring out their phones, tablets and cameras. No thought of boundaries, the decor, their placement or manners! All so they can post a shot on their own social media. That’s the world we live in. Gone are the days where people really sat and enjoyed the moment, appreciated the effort and thought about what their guest pictures will now look like. A sea of technology! GASP! Seriously!
So how can we stop this from happening?
Mention your wishes for a phone/ iPad free wedding on your wedding site or invitations. Make mention that you have taken the time to find a professional to take your pictures and document your day.
Add a reminder on the wedding program.
Make a reminder sign at the venue.
Use the power of word of mouth, it’s a powerhouse when needed.
Best of all talk with your photographer many including us at Pinkstar Photography can provide guests with a link on a card or in the invites, or on the wedding site in advance of where to look for your images to view and download. This provides a stress free way for your guests to relax and enjoy the moment while getting professional copies of the wedding to post at a later date.
Pinkstar Photography provides this service to our couples because we know the struggle, we also don’t like to compete for the kissing shot with uncle bob and his new iPad with retina display. We have many unique and beautiful ways to share your link which also lets you as a couple know when your images will be ready to view!
All our packages come with a beautiful crystal usb and an app where your photos are stored for 10 years. Here is where you can share, print and post to social media without a fuss or worry.
