      Glad to hear you found a photog in your price range that makes you happy! I agree with everyone who said that a competent pro definitely makes a difference. I'm always surprised when I see myself in a pro picture vs a regular picture. SO MUCH difference, and I look SO MUCH better.

      But, I also think it's a good idea for you to have a photobucket site or something like that where you give all the guests the userid and password to upload any of their pictures from the trip.

        Good idea, but not in lou of a real photographer.

        As mentioned, your guests are there to enjoy this special moment WITH you. not capture it for you. As "MissNatalie18" said, ask your guests if one of the would be willing to be the designated photogher, maybe one of them have a little photography under their belt but don't share it. Or find a student or amature photographer or a cheap but good quality pro. Some will only charge the cost of flight and stay.

        Hope all works.

        Friend of the family photographer-
        I will always suggest: brendamurphyphotography.com

              Its never a good idea to leave photography in the hands of a none pro!

              Only because after your wedding that's all that's left are the memories your photographer captured for you!!!

              I get a lot of people who come to me to do trash the dress and day after sessions because they went with a budget photographer and they hate the photos the photog produced.

              Wedding photography isn't something a novis can do! If budget is a big concern maybe see if you can register with a photographer so your guests can help pay for the photogs fee.


              I hope your images no matter what way you decide to go turn out amazing!!!!
