Wedding plans take a lot of time, dedication, patience and commitment. Sort of like marriage. In the end it is all worth it. The memories will be permanently embedded in your minds.

Finding your soul mate gives you all the security you will ever need in life. To spend your life with your best friend is the best gift of all.

These lovely pictures were taken by a family member:

This is one of my favorite pictures of my son's wedding. The photographer said this was very easy to do and could be done with any picture that he took. He used a digital camera to take all the wedding pictures. Just thought I'd share with this year's brides-to-be.

I try to think of poses that are not seen in your typical wedding albums, something unique to the bride and groom that will set them apart from the rest.

When I got married, I had a college photography student take the professional pictures, so I paid less. Then I asked 6 friends if they could spend the day taking pictures they thought were interesting.

Contact your local colleges' Audio/Visual department and see if you can send an email to the group (a secretary will usually send it for you) of students in the photography program about photographing your wedding!

I am looking for ideas for getting wedding photography that doesn't cost an absolute fortune. I don't have any friends who are good photographers and I would really like to have professional posed picture done as well as the usual candids you get when you put the little disposable cameras on the tables.


Anyone in Boston know a good yet inexpensive photographer? Anyone else know how to find one?

Kim from Boston, Ma

Someone gave me this tip -- go to a photo studio and have a posed picture done in your wedding wear. This way, you will have some nice poses to hang on the wall, without a lot of money spent on having the photographer come to the event. For the candid pictures, place disposable cameras around and have your relatives take the pictures.

Is there a place that teaches photography in your area? Maybe one of their better students would enjoy the experience for their portfolio. Good Luck.

Wedding pictures are too important to leave to someone who has no experience. If you don't have much money, call around and get one of the most inexpensive but experienced, professional wedding photographers.
