I have always wanted to ban smart phones from weddings! We all have experienced the embarrassment of unflattering pictures posted on the web.

For one day in her life, the bride should have control of what is posted.
As tempting as it is for your guests to post pictures of your event online immediately, they need to understand you’ve hired a professional to create your memories. A bride deserves this respect. Ask your wedding party to kindly spread the word…
