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’.
‘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!’
