Even Weddings are getting High Tech now a days :)
I'm going to a wedding this evening and the bride and groom sent on an email earlier in the week asking everyone to download this free app called WedPics. They provided a wedding code and asked us all to share pictures through the app. The wedding hasn't even started yet and I can already see pictures there of the bride getting ready with her bridal party. I think this is sooooo neat and fun! This sure beats putting a junky disposable camera on each table and asking for pics. Now the guests can take pictures with their cameras or phones that will probably be better quality than disposable.
This is a cool trend I'm seeing for weddings to become more high tech and allow guests a real chance to get involved! Last year I read an article about "unplugged" weddings becoming the new trend and I didn't like that at all. Unplugged weddings are apparently where you ask guests NOT to take pictures and NOT to bring their phones or cameras. The thought was that they have a wedding photog taking all the pics and they don't need you to take pics. The other thought was they don't want you to "get in the way" of the professional photog. I thought that was rude and impersonal... Personally I've always taken a lot of pictures at weddings and my friends often shared MY photos the day after the wedding since the photographers photos were not available for months. Good wedding photographers know how to work around guests and even involve them in the process.
So hearing about this app for WedPics made me happy because now I know the bride WANTS us to take pictures and share them :) Makes me feel like a bigger part of the wedding and I'm looking forward to it :)
Well I better get ready! Thanks for reading!!
