Wedding Photography and “Uncle Bob” is a great post on the subject. Brides: Beware of Uncle Bob!
Hint: this guy wasn’t being paid to get this shot. Not only was the shot that he got not great, but he’s ruined what would have been a beautiful image by the professional hired to shoot the wedding.
You can always tell who Uncle Bob is by the professional flash he has on top of the camera, pointed RIGHT at his subject. (This is a no-no!)
More proof that a great camera is not what makes a great photographer.
