I’ve heard so many horror stories from other photographers involving…… “Uncle Bob”. While most guests at weddings are really considerate with the professional photographer, some guests focus more on getting their own shot than what is around them. This person is commonly known as “Uncle Bob” to many photographers.
Some guests are so much fun and just want some photos for their own memories. They might engage in some fun photography related chat with the photographer and have a blast that day.
But some Uncle Bobs take it too far by getting in the way of the professional photographer and ruining the shot for not only the photographer but the bride and groom.
Aileene and I were shooting a wedding recently that our photographer friend, Scott, also attended as a guest. We cracked up when he started getting in our way (on purpose but not at a key moment). He even grabbed someone’s Nikon and started getting in our shots for a few seconds. The next few shots are from Aileene’s camera. HAHA!
