    Has anyone tried shooting a wedding with a cell phone? There is a gentleman at a local bar who said he's getting 7 grand for shooting his friends wedding and using his Galaxy S7....

    I have two answers:

    1) All depends on who is getting married; and
    2) For seven thousand ... sure ... (and I'd even give them the phone at the end of the day).

    Someone made a video about doing this. I don't have the link now, but you can find it. Because the phone is so good, don'cha know, and he's so good, also don'cha know.

    Fact check
    1. At a local Bar.
    2. Charging 7k with a cell phone
    3. Doing it for a friend
    Yup, pretty safe assumption this is the alcohol talking. Lots of alcohol!!!

    I think the term "magical" might be stretching the definition a little...
    the shots were ok. a lot of the color looked washed out and over processed, almost instagram filter style.
    which is fine i guess, if you like ruining what was a wonderful venue full of color and detail.
    the pics look fine in a small size on my computer...but enlarge them a little and see what happens...

    didn't see any shots of the ceremony? everything was shot either before or after the fact it seems...
    probably because that was the only way the photog could get close enough without being in the way, and because he was
    using a handheld LCD light to get exposure.

    props for doing it though.
    I believe that he also shot with his DSLR gear...so it wasn't just iphone shots the couple got.

    Same principals apply to the drunk in the bar. The current term for what we used to call a bald face lie is Fake News.
