If you find yourself out for a meal with the family for a special occasion, of course you'll want to grab a group photo while everyone is together, and it's no secret that some people really can't take a clear photo, even when using a basic smartphone. This is where Hilton's newly trained Waitographers can come in useful. 

Group selfies can actually be a tricky thing to organize in most settings, deciding who will take the photo, who has the best camera phone or the one with the widest lens… and more often than not, there'll still be a thumb in the bottom corner of the image, and maybe a little blur from holding the phone at an absurd angle.
