#043: Weddings & FOMO

(For privacy, not actual photo)

I was looking through Facebook photos of a recent Bengali wedding in NYC. 

In the nice bright SLR photo, it was time.

The photographer captured the moment of the bride and groom making their long awaited entrance.

The moment we all waited for and then *boom* there it was...

An Aunty taking photos with an iPad ... blocking the aisle 👩🏻‍💻. 

Several key entrance photos with a massive iPad in the photo with the folding flippity flap iPad cover, making its mark that it’s still 2018.

I wonder, does the bride & groom (who paid a chunk of their savings) want Aunty’s dark photos? Maybe.

Let’s have a moment of silence for iPad photobombers. 

As a culture, we’re all guilty of trying to capture every moment on film, for fear of missing out on a future memory.

...rather than experiencing the moment.

I’ve been guilty of this myself. 

What if cell phones were banned, and the bridge and groom chose what photos they want to share with the world?
