How to tactfully ask guests not to post any of our wedding photos to socials

What's the best way to handle this request? We really don't want any of our photos shown on social media before we get a chance to do it ourselves. Is this something to include as early as the invitations? Or wait to the ceremony?

I am considering wedding content creation services, what do you think of this investment?

Hi there, I am considering hiring a wedding content creation and capture service like @SocialSnapshots, however am unsure as to how i could work this into my budget. I already have a photographer but I'm looking for more behind the scenes content, capturing the details of my day. I am moving states to be with my partner so I'll know there will be plenty of emotions that the photographer wont accurately capture. What do you think of this sort of new service?
