There are a lot of ways for you to celebrate. You are invited to parties, special events, and different types of showers all the time. But how do you enjoy them and document them at the same time?
You don’t want to be the guest that runs around and snaps shots of all of the details. This can be a real mood killer. Not just for you both the other guests as well.
If you are invited to a bridal shower you don’t want to be the insensitive one that is running around taking selfies with all of the guests.
Even if you haven’t seen them for a long time this can make you look self absorbed. It can also create a breaking effect for the other guests that might not want to have their picture taken right at that moment, or even at all.

Friends, gifts, and food are a common point of interest. The goal is to have fun, and taking pictures of these things can be fun. But you need to go about it with a sense of calm. Make it silly. What ever you do, don’t make it work. And when you’re done you will have at least a few photos you can be happy with.Continue reading “How to Have Fun and Document It Too”
