Out with the old, in with..your smart phone.
Disposable cameras are expensive, hard to develop and even harder to keep track of at large events.
Gone are the days of blurry, out-of-focus selfies unknown to the viewer until weeks later. Cell phones have virtually replaced cameras, and now have the ability to capture moments you could only pay a professional for. And while professional photographers are still wonderful to have for those very special moments, sometimes the behind the scenes taken from the perspective of your guests can be even more memorable.
Technology has advanced rapidly, with the familiar disposable camera first developed by Fujifilm in 1986. Though the thought of disposable cameras may have that bittersweet feeling of nostalgia from before phones had cameras (much less touch screens), there is a time and a place for such a device, and unfortunately, an event as important as yours simply isn’t worth the risk.
Wedding and event hashtags are a fun way to share photos, but they also come with the risk of data sharing and public information. Privacy is an important attribute to family memories, especially with little ones involved, as many parents do not wish for their children to have a presence on social media. For corporate events, this rings true even further. Most business protocols (and Human Resources) prohibit photos that exhibit the business entity in an unprofessional manner, and though the holiday party may have been memorable, they don’t appreciate it being a searchable hashtag.
