How can I save on a wedding photographer?
One thing that you both need to decide is whether you want to have a professional photographer take the pictures at your wedding. If you decide not to, then you need to start planning on who will do it, which photos you want taken, and so on. If you decide to hire a professional, you can still save money by limiting the number of pictures that he/she takes, as well as the number of locations that the pictures are taken at. For instance, it will cost more for the photographer to take pictures at your mother's, the church, a special location, the church and the reception.
You can limit the number of photos a professional needs to take by having disposable cameras at the reception. Place them at all of the tables, and make sure that you leave instructions and/or have the DJ give instructions. You may want to ask some people to take certain photos, and you may request that guests take candid shots. Also, know which shots the photographer plans on taking, so that they aren't duplicated.
Do you know someone that is good at taking pictures, that you feel confident that he/she would do a good job? If so, ask him/her to do it for you. Depending on your relationship with this individual, you might not even have to pay for the services. Make sure that before the day of the wedding that you sit down with him/her to discuss which photos are the most important for them to take. If you'll be doing something out-of-the-ordinary during the ceremony or the reception, and want it photographed, make sure that you fill in the person so that he/she will be ready.
Instead of having a professional take the pictures, or an acquaintance, why not get a semi-professional? There is probably a vocational school or college in your area that could do this for you. They would be more than grateful to have the opportunity for such a job, and to be able to add to their portfolio. Just make sure that you're comfortable with the person you choose, and you should be fine.
