Interesting Peter. Are you using wireless in camera?

Just grabbed a Sony A7 as a walk around camera. Found a few unexpected benefits of having it. I can upload on the fly.

A7 is Really nice. I may pick up a 70D as a back up and try your suggestion :-D

You mentioned yourself that the photos are crap and that you aren't worried.
I see TONS of cameras at weddings I shoot and I don't worry about it unless they get in my way. I'm there to capture the wedding day and deliver the product to the client. Nothing more. Nothing less.

100% with nicksan.

Was at a wedding last week and I am not a prof photographer. I took tons of photos at the rehearsal and at breakfast and of people getting ready etc. when the prof arrived I put my 6d and 24-70ii away and was done. Wish I'd kept it with me though because photographers left way before the end of the reception. Basically I don't want to get in the way of someone making a living.

This is an issue that continues to bug me - only if people get in my way of a good shot and if they arent 'present' at the wedding because they're snapping pics on their phone.

How about the unplugged ceremony idea? I dont care about other times of the wedding day but walking down the aisle, first kiss etc is really critical

I snapped this picture at a friend's wedding during the cake cutting, however, I don't think there's any harm in people wanting to take pictures.

One of my favorite photos of my wedding was snapped by a friend, not the photographer we paid. He had already left for the night.

On a side note - I've been asked by a friend to take photos at her rehearsal. I'm going to give it a go, but if the pro she's paying shows up I'm putting my camera away!!

I'll be shooting my first wedding with "In Wedding" sneak peeks next week. I'll be uploading to FB as the day unfolds.

How are you planning to accomplish that?

Could be worse...

I know a photographer who shot a wedding and within 48 hours, the couple split up! :lol:

good to hear. but was the photog paid? that's all the photog should care about.
If the B&G want to split 2 hours or 2 days after the wedding is not the photog's concern.

??? This doesn't make sense. It's one thing to have the courtesy to not get in a vendor's way, but that doesn't mean you need to treat them like they are sacrosanct.

Next time don't ever pick up your relatives from the Airport...you may get in the way of someone (a Taxi Driver) trying to make a living...

Actually next time you see someone collapse on the ground, don't perform CPR. You may be getting in the way of someone making a living (e.g. an EMT). I'm sure an EMT will always be around to save that person...

You can use those wi-fi cards but I guess the trick is being selective with the shots.

Listen to everyone above. You might as well stand on the shoreline and command the tide to turn back.
