Some of people I know don't seem to care about the event. All they want is to pose infront of the camera. Which sometimes kinda ruined the event because they have more photos than the celebrants.
Even when in the middle of the highlight of the event... "They rush for the flash!"
Most of the people in the event says:"...Buti sana kung kagandahan"

Have you ever seen the few people who insist on taking photos/videos with their iPad or galaxy tab?
Looks so cool walking around the event hall with a huge slab in front of your face.
EDIT: Note that I'm all for taking a few (3 or 4) pics and a few videos to keep a memory. The funny ones are the people who record almost the whole event from start to finish with their tablets.
picture ng picture idedelete din naman nila . imo
I've been guilty of this. Though I always tried to stay out of the official photographers and videographers way, and I also always tried to not be in the background of their frame as they shoot.
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
i agree that people must be more discerning in taking photos, so to avoid distracting the whole event, but apart from that, I see no issues with taking photos/videos whether they post the crappy video on youtube or whatnot.
for them, probably, it immortalizes the event as most say, that when they check the videos and photos again, the candidness of it reminds them of the craziness of the party, the life of that day, etc.
but yeah, enjoy the moment, too!
Since weddings now serve as mini-reunions, I always bring my point and shoot camera so I can take a few pictures with friends I haven't seen in a while.
Events like weddings and the like, for me are also a venue for reuniting with good old friends. We will be lying if we say we don't like to capture moments like this.
I guess it all boils down to how you take the picture and how long you take them. As for me, for a wedding for example, I'll take a picture or two of the bride walking down the aisle, then just enjoy the moment.
In other words, be sensitive and know if you're obstructing or annoying already.
Also, if you're covering the event as the official photographer, you should at least have more patience. Remember, you are PAID to take pictures.
