With many brides looking for ways to cut wedding costs, they are turning more and more to friends and family to take their wedding photographs. Thanks to the advances in digital photography and computer editing software, the pictures can often be made equal quality to professional work. Professional photographers can be expensive and charge royalty fees; however, they do typically provide photo editing services, compile beautiful albums, and they are sure to take the essential wedding photographs. Should you decide to not use a professional, be sure to bring a specific list of the photos you would like taken.
