Smartphones cameras have improved a lot in the past few years and under certain circumstances, they could even replace a professional camera. Those circumstances, however, definitely do not include taking out your phone for a quick snap and blocking the view of a professional photographer hired at an event, but that is exactly what one girl decided to do, almost ruining an important moment at a wedding.
Hannah Stanley, the hired wedding photographer, was just about to get the money shot of the father walking his daughter down the aisle when suddenly an iPhone entered her frame, ruining the shot. She could eventually adjust to get the shot, but almost missed it.
The professional photographer then ranted on Facebook, urging people to enjoy the moment rather than live it via a digital screen, capturing photos they will definitely not use much after taking them.
And yes, while banning smartphones at weddings is probably not the best idea, using them more conscientiously definitely is.
