A possible way to get your candid shots without the eco-heavy guilt??
A disposable camera on every table at the reception… that’s a lot of waste! Someone cleverly found a way to make those disposable cameras re-usable. All the inside stuff has been refurbished, and the outside is made of heavy-duty cardstock. So they will work like a brand new disposable camera, and won’t have a recycled look. Available in pastel pink and white. Personally, if I wanted a bunch of candid shots, I’d skip these disposable cameras and tell all my friends and family to bring their digital cameras. Then after the wedding, I’d email account information at flickr, photobucket, picassa …or something similar….then everyone could have fun uploading their shots and seeing everyone else’s photos.
