I'll be doing my first wedding in a month and I'm sincerely hoping the bride and groom ask that only I do pictures. haha.
I will be definitely asking for an unplugged wedding.
I would murder any friend or family member that ruined my wedding photos the way that some of these people did.

Me. Freaking. Too.
I LOVED my wedding photographers, they had an amazing portfolio and background, I paid tons for them to do the work, they did a great job, no complaints whatsoever about them...but I have better pictures from guests.
Tbh, if I could do it all over again I would most likely not even hire a photographer.

This one kills me the most:
I would be livid if I were the bride and groom and found out that my asshat buddy ruined what should've been one of if not the most important shot of the wedding.
My first wedding, my photographer was a family friend who did it professionally.
He gave me a great rate and after the ceremony when we were doing the bridal party shots he said this "ok, it's fine for family/friends to take pics while info this but no flashes or I will stop. Bridal party, you are to only look where I tell you to, if I don't tell you a specific spot then that means look right at me. If someone looks at another camera I will give a warning, if it happens again I will pack up my equipment, give you what shots I have so far and return half of your money." I LOVED that he said that. He was smiling the whole time saying it and said it in a caring way but my pics came out beautiful for only paying $100! I hate when everyone is looking different ways in pics!
Something I never really thought about!!! Ill be sure to be a good guest and spread the word for people to at the very least keep the flash off!
I would cry my eyes out. lol
Yep- I never take pictures at people's weddings. Completely ridiculous.
That is so awful! The only pictures we took at my best friend's wedding were the ones with her permission. I'm so glad her pictures turned out flawless and nothing like this happened.
