neccesary or annoying(there are always in the way).July 12, 2011 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #785269adorableParticipant
the chosson and kallah can forever relive the event but they are always in the way- i know what you mean especially at the chuppa. I think they dont really get to enjoy the night being that they are so emotionally charged but when they look at the pics its nice for themJuly 12, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #785270HaKatanParticipant
I’ve seen many good photogs who do NOT “get in the way”.
Though I don’t really see the premise of the question…July 12, 2011 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #785271TheGoqParticipant

18 years. every day, it sits on top of the coffee table.July 12, 2011 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #785273zen3344Participant
The good ones DON’T get in the way. And Goq, 23 years. Looked at the video last year. Looked at the album last month.July 12, 2011 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm #785274
there is a story by Rabbi Emanuel Feldman on how he once refused to move from his position under the chuppah so the photographer could get a good shot of the chosson putting the ring on the kallahs finger. That is what I mean by in the way.July 12, 2011 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #785275oomisParticipant
34 years, and thank G-D for the movies and pictures. I virtually have no memory of the wedding. Everything was a blur to me. I only remember that it was beautiful. The pics make it real again.July 12, 2011 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #785276brotherofursParticipant
for sure necessary, i just don’t like it when there is a man photographer and he’s trying to get a good pic while there are tons of ladies squishing him all around! 🙁July 12, 2011 10:31 pm at 10:31 pm #785277
There wouldn’t be a problem if photographers knew their boundaries! Though photographers may sometimes be annoying, I do believe in the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”July 12, 2011 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #785278Derech HaMelechMember
At my wedding I asked for a female video-lady for the women’s section.
She brought along a guy to help her with the equipment.

Also videographers. For my bar mitzvah seudah, one of my teachers says “are you taping me while I’m eating???!). We had that taken out of the video.July 13, 2011 12:33 am at 12:33 am #785280
Sender Av, that’s actually pretty funny
I’ve seen worse, like the person who was videoed as he cleaned his nose…July 13, 2011 12:48 am at 12:48 am #785281shev143Member
DERECH, sorry to hear you lost that battle. I know someone who lost a battle with cancer.July 13, 2011 12:52 am at 12:52 am #785282
How is it even permissable for a man to be in the woman’s section when they are dancing, looking at them dance and photographing/video-graphing the women??? And how are those woman even able to dance in front of him???July 13, 2011 1:22 am at 1:22 am #785283
Pac-Man, Most men aren’t actually IN the woman’s section. They usually stand by the mechitza alternating between videoing the men and women.July 13, 2011 1:30 am at 1:30 am #785284
Another name: I was referring to the male photographers, not most men. And unfortunately many of them actually go into the ezras noshim. But even if they only “looked” from above the mechitza, that doesn’t alleviate the problem.July 13, 2011 1:35 am at 1:35 am #785285
Pac-Man, I meant male photographers, but you are right, even if most don’t it’s still inappropriate for men to be watching women dancing…
What do you suggest be done to resolve it?July 13, 2011 1:40 am at 1:40 am #785286
That no male photographer be in, or look in, to the women’s section. Get female photographers. (And in the unlikely event that is not possible, that doesn’t excuse the alternative.)
Additionally, I don’t even understand how videos can be taken of women dancing (or on the same token how any woman can dance in front of a video camera.) Does anyone really believe no men will view those videos? The male video editors will, the Choson will, the family will, and friends will.July 13, 2011 2:51 am at 2:51 am #785287A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
My husband and I look at our wedding album together every year on our anniversary. It’s just that it’s become a bit sad because so many people in that album are no longer with us.
