Three time NBA Championship Guard for the Miami Heat, Dywane Wade and former model and actress Gabrielle Union will be marrying at a famous hotel on August 30th and have asked guest not to bring cell phones and cameras to their all-star, A-list celebrity ceremony. And guess what? The media’s not happy!
So what’s causing the stir? Because their request knocked the middle man out. In the old days, professional photographers took all the pics and everyone, including the happy couple, had to wait at least two to three weeks to see the lovely pics. Today, to ask someone to wait two to three weeks to build a house is considered outlandish. But yet the Wades' took a bold approach and opted to give someone - that's been trained professionally and probably has a passion for pictures - the opportunity to photograph one of the most important days of their lives.
And as a result, the media will get to experience life without their press pass and finger-happy-selfie-snapping guests will just have to put their patience caps on and wait – like the rest of us and as it should be – to await the gorgeous pics of one of the most highly anticipated weddings of the year. No one will be able to sell any photos to the highest bidder and photography order will be restored. In an age of cell phones and selfies, the photography industry has taken a plunge. But thanks to the Wade’s, professional photographers have an opportunity to do what they're passionate about and that’s taking pictures of lovely couples – just like the future Wade’s.
So if you were thinking about making the same request – go for it! It’s your big day so why not tweet and post your own pics. Make everyone view your pages and enter your socialsphere! Just be kind with your request and ample with your posts! Or even better; wait for the professional photos and disburse weeks later. I mean what’s the rush? You paid thousands of dollars for a four hour wedding and reception; why not wait two more weeks and get more bang for your buck?
