I read this somewhere and it is great advice.
Advice for brides-to-be: “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional photographer for one day, the emotional cost of hiring an amateur lasts forever.”
If you're need to save money on a photographer, talk to your professional of choice. He or she can try to work a plan that works for both the Bride and Groom and the Photographer. Although I admire the is ambitious amateur, It's a gamble with odds you totally against you. Talk to us at Aperture Photography you will be pleasantly surprised.
