Sometimes wedding guests can do things that make you want to roll your eyes, but one faux pas we've been hearing about a lot lately is guests getting in the way of professional photography and videography.

Wedding guests take note: If you want to take pictures be aware of what's going on around you because attempting to capture every moment of the day could ruin the photos the couple has paid to be taken. Staying in your seat and snapping a few shots is ok as well as getting group shots with your friends and family members. Moving around and getting too close during the big moments like the cake cutting, first dance, and especially during the ceremony, is a sure way to make a few too many appearances in the couple's photo album.
