Nobody really likes waiting, but in this instance, you want to wait. Waiting will give you amazing, high quality, gorgeous wedding photos that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Waiting patiently will give you a happy photographer who will give the best of themselves to you. Excellent. So, how the heck do you wait patiently? How about one (or all) of these options - tried, true and tested.

  1. Review the photos that your guests took. While your phone is probably not the best accessory for your wedding gown, your guests are sure to be snappy happy. Use an app to collect all of the photos, I like Capsule, because it's free and instagram friendly - insta!
  2. Have a photo booth. Which equals instant and hilarious photos. We all know how much fun they are, but what about this new take: flip book booths? 

AND what about having your guest make their own video-derived flip books!? Local company Let's Flippin Party is a great way to shake things up, capturing hilarious moments - your guests letting their hair down. Be sure to check out Flippin Sweet's SLO-MO Photo Booth... I love unicorns.

3. DON'T ask your photographer if your photos are ready yet. Instead completely forget that they are being edited to perfection. Instead enjoy being married, live in the moment, and get your last named changed - by the time your done waiting in line with your social security card your pictures will be done and you'll have a new identity - or you will be declared insane... goodie. 

Our suggestion? Be clear with your expectations. Know exactly how long your photos might take, and then go by the longer estimate, that way when your photographer finishes sooner you will be pleasantly surprised!
