This happens at every wedding I go to:
People take pics on their phone and immediately post to Instagram where they get shared/liked/commented instantly.
3 Months Later you get an email link from the bride/groom with professional photos…wayyy after the moment has passed😕
I was discussing with a friend that it'd almost be cooler to hire someone to take good pics with their phone and immediately post them during the event!
They would post from their phone, tag people, and the event would spread on socials.
This whole "I'll send you photos 3 months later" thing seems antiquated now and really misses the fun of posting them around the main event.
Also anytime I've hired a photographer part of the deal is I get their raw photo dump right after the shoot.
I make sure they know at the end of the photo session I'm going to pop that SD card into my laptop so I have the photos now!
