Photographs are still the most traditional and intimate record of a day to remember. There's nothing like settling back for a cozy evening of reminiscences with your wedding album.
Like all other aspects of planning a wedding, shopping around for prices is a must. However, the best photographers are not always the most affordable and they are likely to be the busiest. Booking early and budgeting are certainly called for in this case.
The temptation to have a family friend or a relative record your wedding day as a cost-cutting measure is one that should be dismissed right here and now. Your wedding will be over in the blink of an eye, but the memories captured by a professional photographer will last a lifetime and be cherished forever by your children and grandchildren.
As a photographer who has used film for over twenty years, it is my opinion that film does still handle certain situations better than digital. For all practical purposes, they will both produce professional results in the hands of a professional. It is the images and the feelings that are captured and evoked that make the final impression.
