I was just curious has any one ever incorporated a gopro in capturing shots at a wedding that they were doing?

No. I have seen guests bring them to weddings that I was 2nd shooting.

I find them more of an annoyance than anything. The one guy had a stupid "selfie stick" with the go pro attached and he kept popping into the way when we were trying to do formal shots. He was asked many times to get out of the way but in the end the groom told him off, grabbed his selfie stick and threw it into the bushes.

I mostly seen it used on drones.

I'm thinking about buying an action cam, but for personal stuff.

Go pro doesn't have good quality so there's no real reason to use it. You can get an ultra wide angle for your camera if you really need to cover more 'real estate'. If you can put go pro maybe on a drone or stick it somewhere high up for some odd out of the box shot then by all means it's easier with a light setup like gopro. It alway can't be very dark as once past ISO 1000 gopro isn't very good any more and while ok for facebook, I wouldn't want to be printing those shots...

Is this true of the newer GoPro's? I have seen the pics and videos and on the computer they look comparable to a DSLR shot. I have never seen them printed though...

May it be the first of many.
