Morgan - a bride on here, owns a photography business. She specializes in children, however she has a great newsletter with some simple tips on how to take better pictures with your point and shoot camera. Although children and TTD are different, I think the same rules technically apply

I agree you only hang up one or two and the rest stay put away, I think our free 24 photos might have to do it for us on the professional end...

Most people can get a few nice shots in great light. Now to get your wedding covered nicely, you really need someone who really knows what they are doing & has lots of practice. Weddings move so fast. To cover everything & do it right, a photographer really needs the experience & skill.
I had an ultra-budget wedding & was going to skip photography & just hope enough guests got good shots. It was making me nervous. I finally decided to up my photography budget & I am so glad I did.
I do think the older family members didn't get why I'd spend so much on photography, but they got it afterwards. They had never seen wedding pictures like mine. After sorting through all the shots my guests took, I was really glad I didn't reley on just those. In the bright sun, most peoples pictures didn't turn out. Now that I know photography, I can see why they didn't work & I can see what it took our pro photographer to get spectacular images while the guests were too dark.
It's not even 2 years since my wedding & the photographs mean even more to me now. There are so many that I consider priceless, like this one of my father.
A huge print from my wedding is currently the main decoration in my living room. So often I think about how glad I am that the girls at BDW convinced me to splurge on my wedding photography.
So my advice would be if you can cut back anywhere else, consider it. Unless you really don't care a lot about pictures. Some people don't which is understandable.
If you are going to reley on guests pictures, you might want to take a card reader & a computer or another way to back up the images. It can be hard to get the images from guests after the wedding. Not everyone is set up to burn CDs. I ended up paying per image on snapfish to get some from guests.

Of course I will still encourage guests to take pics as well but their pictures will just be a nice bonus Good luck!

For chicas who know their photos are gonna be in a dusty album, it might not be worth the splurge for you. Just bc it's important to me doesn't mean it has to be for you too. We're all on a budget so you have to figure out what tops your charts.
If you really want to go DIY on your photos, I'd designate one person to be in charge and give them a list of specific photos you want so they don't get missed. Don't waste your $ on disposable cameras. Go in with fairly low expectations so that you might be pleasantly surprised. If you think you'll be saddened if your friend's photos don't rock, then this might not be the way to go. Just my $0.02!
