Yes, you’ve read that right: robot photographer is a thing. Eva Photography Robot was launched in February current year by servicerobots.com and this month, Eva made her debut at a wedding in Warwickshire, UK.

Gary and Megan Barker wanted something unusual for their wedding, so they hired Eva the robot to take photos of them and their guests. The robot is programmed to roam around the room and use facial recognition to latch onto a guest (or guests) and ask to take their picture. If the guests want to have their photo taken, they can strike a pose and Eva will snap away until they’re pleased with the results. From here on, the photos can be shared directly on social media. Also, photos can be printed off at the Print Station in the room.

The groom seems thrilled by the robot, as well as his guests:

“This was a fantastic addition to our day and our guests are still talking about it. Eva went down a treat and really got people involved. It made a nice change from the normal photo booths.”

A servicerobots.com in a way confirmed Gary’s impressions:

“People are less interested in traditional photo booths. They are looking for something new and memorable that will really make their event stand out. None of the guests at this wedding will ever forget their first encounter with a robot photographer and it will provide the happy couple with a lovely reminder of their special day.”

I believe that this quirky “photographer” was in the center of attention as much as the bride and groom. Still, worry not – it’s not a competitor to us flesh and blood photographers, it’s merely a cooler version of a photo booth. After all, humans are still better at photographing robots than the other way around. Well, at least for now. : )

      Samuel Ng imagine the shot you could have gotten with a “real” camera then……
      just because someone has a credit card, doesn’t mean they’re a professional

    Bet it shoots better pictures than the average random person who picks up a DSLR and calls themselves a professional photographer after reading the manual.

      Pretty much every time I asked a random person for a photo it turned out terrible and I always ask people that spots an expensive DLSR but been wrong every single time.

    Looks funny now but the robotics would only improve and they could add AI from something like the Google Clip camera then it will be the beginning of the end of event photography. May not be for another decade or two but it will happen.
