A software engineer wore Apple Vision Pro to his wedding, much to his new bride's chagrin

A new viral image circulating the internet shows a young man wearing the Apple Vision Pro in his wedding pictures, after his new bride explicitly asked him not to.

For most people, a wedding is a time of excitement, new beginnings, and celebrating love. For Jacob Wright, it was as good an excuse as any to make the questionable decision to bust out his new Apple Vision Pro.

To his credit, Wright didn't wear it during the ceremony which would have clearly started the marriage off on a bad foot. He did wear it in the post-wedding pictures, as well as throughout the reception.

Wright, a software engineer at artificial intelligence startup Runpod, says playing with new tech is a hobby of his. His wife, Cambree, isn't a big fan of the Apple Vision Pro.

She called the device "a little creepy."

That wasn't all, though. Cambree explicitly requested that it didn't make an appearance in their wedding photos.

"He's like, 'Hey baby, can we get pictures with the Apple Vision Pro?'" Cambree told SFGate. "He probably asked me two or three times. I was like, 'No, no, no, we have to wait, we have to wait.' And then I turn around one minute and he has it on."

The picture shows Cambree looking disgusted. She later clarified that she wasn't -- but we have doubts about that.

"I totally look pissed in the picture," she told SFGate, even though she does. "But I wasn't pissed."

Wright justified donning the headset during the couple's big day as it enables him to capture Spatial Video. Of course, the iPhone 15 Pro can shoot Spatial Video, too.

    They need attention so badly.

    I feel sorry for people like this.  They're so hung up on "capturing the moment" they completely fail to *experience* the moment.  What's the point of the former if you haven't done the latter?

    Porn on AVP can't come fast enough for this guy... because he's going to have a pretty lonely/short marriage.

    I agree. I’d also think there was somebody at the wedding, a groomsman or two perhaps, that could spend some time capturing spatial video for him. That way he would at least be in the videos of his own wedding.

    Am I correct in thinking that the new iPhones also capture spatial video?  Couldn't SOMEONE ELSE be capturing the video?  He won't need the video because if the marriage lasts, his wife will NEVER let him forget what a clown he was.

    Run the hills, girl, just run. You’ve been warned. 

    I suppose the silver lining is that this is driven by his hobby. Imagine what it would be like if his hobby was taxidermy and he showed up with a deer carcass.

    Bingo!

    Seems so many people go through life like this such that when they watch home movies or view their own pictures they aren't memories but rather they are experiencing the event for the first time. What a strange way to live life.

    I've got news for you, Hon. If you think he's shutting you out now, just wait.

    Of course this was in Utah. (I know our mountains very well.)

    "Hey baby, can we get pictures with the Apple Vision Pro?"

    He is more in love with a piece of technology centered on isolation, than he is with her.  That would have been the sign to tear up the marriage license and walk away.  The fact that he brought them to the wedding was the biggest red flag not to marry the guy.  I bet he wears the Vision Pro in front of the judge during their divorce or annulment.

    Could this have been staged by both of them for publicity?   It would not surprise.

    Anyone want to lay the odds on them being in divorce court within five years?

    THAT'S a bet on which I wouldn't take the short odds!

    What odds will you give for the guy wearing his Vision Pro in divorce court?

    Just let the guy enjoy the day the way that he wants to. You're marrying him. Support his dreams.

    Not to mention the drawbacks. Sure HE gets to capture a video from his perspective. But what about HER?

    better to have a third party do it if at all. I’m sure they have photographers.etc. 

    But I think this is nothing really. They took all the normal photos and he wanted to throw this in there as a gag. No big.

    If this man ever gets charged with a criminal offence, will he be allowed to wear this in court (he could argue that it replaces optical lenses as a vision correction system) or would doing that violate his victim's constitutional right to face his accuser? The US constitution says:

    "in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right ... to be confronted with the witnesses against him." 

    Generally, when I google the topic, people can wear a niqab or burka while on the stand in a court. (It seems to vary by country or by US state.) But those things cannot record video, while many courts prohibit video cameras.

    Even in places like Saudi Arabia, the head-covering must be removed for passport photos, but many women from Saudi Arabia put tape over their passport photo (and drivers license, etc.) and only remove the tape when a customs officer needs to see it. Some police officers will not require that the tape be removed when checking their photo ID. I suppose the Apple Vision Pro could be briefly removed in court, and then put back on. That could comply with the US constitution.

    Well it is going to be a great movie - in 3D no less - where everybody can clearly see the exact moment, when his woman stopped loving him.

    I'm looking forward to getting the AVP. However, when it is used like this - at weddings or during driving or on the streets, it seems as annoying as a selfie stick!
