I watch my daughter struggling with editing her short films (talk about tight time and the need for editing down to the absolute essentials needed to tell your story!) and I hear you loud and clear. And honestly, if the choice is between a few seconds of Claire cleaning up or a few second shot of one or both of them that conveys the absolute emotion of the wedding night (I’m thinking the final lovemaking when we see in their faces what they have come to mean to each other) I’ll choose the character shot anytime.

That said the lack of something can often be as/more effective in provoking thought and coversation about something than showing it would have been.
