Recently my photographer for our wedding next December posted a picture of a guest actually ruining a great shot she had taken of the bride and groom walking down the aisle because they used a flash, which ended up right between the couple. After she posted that, it got me thinking about a friend of mine who said no flashes about a year ago, to which I remember thinking "wow, control freak" LOL!
After seeing that picture, however, I completely get it! We are paying a lot of money for our photographer to get the perfect shot, we aren't paying the guests! Is it appropriate to put in the ceremony programs "No flash photography, please" or something along the lines of how we understand the excitement of getting that perfect shot for yourself, but please be understanding that we have hired a professional photographer to get that perfect shot for us (obviously not those exact words). I know people have posted something in a frame, but I'd be afraid that will get over looked, and if the priest announces it too early, I'd be afraid people would miss the announcement.
Let me know what you think!
