I saw another "expert" recommend that disposable cameras are still a great way to capture the memories of the wedding day. Wow! in 2010 when digital is all the rage, everyone owns or has access to a high quality digital camera and you can barely buy a cell phone without one. I still see blog posts and articles recommending these as a "favor" or "way to save money" on your wedding. Maybe to entertain the kids, but not to capture your memories!
I'm obviously biased because it's the service we offer. Its an affordable, private and effect way to collect photos from every event (not just the reception). But, even if you don't necessarily recommend SeeYouThen, please don't guide your brides towards disposable cameras.
Even if you just did the simple math on 20 tables x $3-5 dollars/camera and then you need to get them developed, the economics (let alone the poor quality) just don't make sense anymore. Can you imagine spending $200 for disposable cameras today vs. just asking your friends, family and guests to help capture the day?
Our brides collect typically over 1000 photos from their friends, family and guests across 3-5 events and that doesn't even count what you get from your professional and all that for $59.00.
Sorry if I sound like a SeeYouThen billboard, but I'm honestly concerned about the amount of articles that are out there that still recommend them. What do you guys think? Is the disposable camera (one time use camera) dead or am I off base?
