Also, I didn't higher a videographer for my wedding. I TOTALLY regret it. My mom tried to nickle and dime me out of every decision and she convinced me that it was wasted money. I wish I didn't listen to her. A family friend volunteered to tape it for us (I'm thinking my mom called him!) and we decided to forego the cost and go with free. I really didn't want him to do it because I was very against having my guests "working" during the wedding, but he insisted and said he would tape it even if we hired a pro for his own copy. Anyways, I happened to notice him during the wedding sitting REALLY far away and I thought- oh shit. This isn't good. Sure enough- the video sucks and is like 10 mins long. Most of the video is from other parts of the vacation. So just be cautious!

I'm not sure if you want to look into this, but maybe you should scope out schools in your area. Maybe you can view the work of a photography/journalism student who wants to break into the field of weddings. This is a stretch but may be worth a try. I'd hate for you to look back and regret not getting the shots you want.

However, to each their own. I would just caution to really think it through because it's not something you really want to regret later KWIM? It's not like it's just a family BBQ that reoccurs every other year.
If I were you girls, I'd study a bunch of wedding photos on here on the forum and find a few photos that represent what you want/envision from yours. Now think- do I think a guest can reasonably do that? If so, then go with that. If not, then really consider a different option.

Personally, I think in the long run you would regret not having some great wedding memomries in the form of pictures more than you would spending a little extra on a photographer.
