    You've been to other weddings where the photographer was right in the action, running around during the ceremony and flashing his lights all the time - you think this is:
    • A. 

      So irritating. It's distracting for the guests and seems very inconsiderate and unnecessary. You would prefer if they were more discrete and careful not to be disruptive.

    • B. 

      It's a little much - you can understand needing to set up lighting and use a flash, but you'd prefer if your photographer tried to be a bit more discrete.

    • C. 

      Expected, the couple wants to ensure that every moment is captured, and the photographer should have free-rein of the ceremony site to ensure that nothing is missed.

    • D. 

      A bit extreme, your ultimate photographer get the shots they needed, but be careful not to distract with flashes. A bit of movement is alright, but you don't want them to be disruptive.

    • B. 

      Not very important, I might ask for a few since my parents would like it, but I don't want to spend much time on them at all.

    • C. 

      Pretty important, I want to have some really well lit formal photos of me and my family- after all, it's not often we are all together in one place.

    • D. 

      The formal photos are very important to me. I want formal pictures with both our families. Also, I know that it would mean a lot to my family too.
