yes, I love the fact that my friends were sending me pictures the next day. Who wants to wait that long for pro pics?
After my wedding, a good friend sent me pics within a few days. Like other PPs have said, I LOVED seeing some pics right away.
She also asked for my permission before posting a couple on her FB page. I know she didn't need to get my okay and I didn't mind at all anyway, but it was thoughtful she asked.
A girl I'm friends with on FB posted an article similar to this a while back and I commented on it saying that it was kind of rude, unnecessary, and I loved some of the pictures people took on their phones. She told me that I needed a better photographer then. Hah, right.The fact of the matter is, professional wedding photographers should know how to work around other people taking pictures and politely ask someone to move if they are truly in the way. That's what I paid for in my photographer, professionalism.
