Are you good enough to photograph in a room of 150 cameras, or aren't you?

I see so many photographers complaining about this, and I dont get it, It is our job to get the best images no matter what. If someone steps in my way, I move.

No ego there at all.

It's not about being good or not. It's that it severely limits your compositional options if you have to stand here instead of there.

The article is actually from the perspective of the bride and groom--not a photographer. It's an interesting read touching on the idea that people are becoming increasingly disengaged from the wedding by being too 'connected' to what's happening outside of the wedding or too focused on trying to take pictures of what's happening rather than experiencing it.

We just shot one of these! In our last wedding, the officiant related a request from the couple that guests put away their cameras during the ceremony. I felt lots of schadenfreude as several DSLRs and dozens of compacts and phones were placed under seats. And the guests listened. Our clattering D700s were the only cameras I heard during the ceremony.

Interesting - for every article I see about going unplugged - I see an article about crowd sourcing wedding photos:

http://www.thestar.com/life/2013/06/07/how_pluggedin_couples_are_crowdsourcing_wedding_photos_with_twitter_instagram_and_apps.html

Totally opposite direction - just look up all the different apps that are available for crowd sourcing photo coverage.

It just depends on the couple and how they think of technology in general...

Has anyone here brought up the idea of an Unplugged Wedding with a client? What was the reaction?

I'm having my wedding unplugged. I have the article linked from my blog, but I don't bring it up with customers.

If a couple can't distinguish a pro's images from a pile of crowd-sourced shots, I sure as hell don't want to be the guy who books them.
