"Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named...but a dying culture invariable exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners is more significant than a riot."
This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture... Therefore we must now prepare the monasteries for the coming Dark Age. Electronic records are too fragile..."
--Robert A. Heinlein in "Friday"

Don't you just love these weirdos who have to shoot with their cellphones and ipads?? My god... why did you pay a photographer to do this if you're letting everyone else be so rude with a camera.

That's a good point.  I need to find a way to tactfully ask people at my wedding to try to stay out of my photographer's way, given how much it costs us to have our wedding shot...

Hilarious!  But unfortunately so typical!  I almost lost a shot of the first kiss at an outdoor ceremony when a guest stepped into the aisle and bent over to retrieve a dropped program at the critical moment.  Thank goodness the couple held the kiss for the few seconds it took for this guy to get out of the way!

Forgot to say..D3 and 70-200VRII

There will always be these ocasional wedding rodents ruining our shots. Obviously this one wasn't critical and the wedding was a casual affair but still, VERY annoying.

A quick cure, Stop taking wedding assignments

Half the iPhone shots I see on Facebook are better than the "professional" photographs all my friends post from their weddings.

That's why it is important, I think, to always a have a secondary shooter at the wedding. If that lady did not run into the shot like that, it would have been a good event shot of point n shooters shooting.

Be nice, these people are the dear friends of bride and groom. They want to bring memories of their own back home.

I wouldn't spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to be tactful. It's an important day and an important/costly part of that day. Let the guests know who the photographer is and ask them to be respectful. Clear, polite, done.
