Re: The pros were hired by B&G (have some respect)

Don't forget that no matter what you may think of the pros who are there to shoot the wedding, they were hired by and paid for by the B&G or someone very very close to them. It's their day.

If you or "SLR guests" are comfortable wasting presumably your friends' or family's money, then by all means interfere with the pros' job. I would think that some modicum of love and/or respect for people you're supposed to care about would get you to stay out of the pros' way, but what do I know? If the B&G had wanted you to shoot their wedding, wouldn't they have asked you?

And what does the word "guest" mean to you, anyway?

This is the self-importance that other people have posted about in the thread.

You are quite right, it is the couples day (I assume that's what you mean, you could also interpret your text as saying it's photographer's day!), and they INVITE the guests that they WANT to see there and celebrate with them. The photographer is PAID because they are providing a service, not because they are more important than the guests.

Pretty much every wedding I have been to in the last 5 years the B&G have put disposable camera's on the tables for everyone to take photographs throughout the day, which are then collected in at the end for more photo's. So I guess you could say that they are asking the guests to shoot the wedding!
