PlumpJack Squaw Valley wedding photography for Amy and Sergio

By Monique and Scott

Amy and Sergio got married at PlumpJack Squaw Valley in mid September, the perfect time of year for the tall golden grasses in the valley. They had their first look in the field, and we spent some time in the valley with them and their wedding party before their ceremony back at PlumpJack with Squaw’s tram face as the back drop.

I threw this shot in here to illustrate how, in our opinions, the guests should put their phones down and be present … let us capture the moments. A lot of professionals complain about their images getting ruined by the guests. It is frustrating, yes, but a true professional will be able to work around the guests to get the shot most of the time … see the next image...

Realizing that there were a ton of guests sticking their phones in the middle of the aisle, I moved myself in order to capture the bride and her dad.

I threw this one in here to show you a "behind the scenes" how it is done … yes, we often lay on the ground to get unique angles.

    It frustrates me deeply when guests whip out their cell phones and take a hundred blurry, partially obscured shots during the ceremony, thereby making it difficult for professional photographers to do their job. I expressed my frustration to my fiance while looking at your shot of ceremony and cell phones. He offered some insight by telling me that guests are not trying to take artistic shots, and they wouldn’t understand my annoyance and frustration with the sacrifice of a few artistic shots for a hundred terrible ones. The guests are simply participating in the ceremony. The way that humans now participate in social gatherings and ritual is via cell phone, via instagram and twitter and texting and facebook. His insight made me realize that if I post a sign that says, “please put your cell phone down and be present” I will hurt someone’s feelings because I am asking them not to participate in the ceremony. It would be more effective to offer an alternative way to participate rather than simply forbidding what has become the default way of interacting socially.

    That being said, I totally agree with your wish that guests avoid photobombing the photographer – and I really want to make that sign.
