A friend of mine, not too close of a friend, texts me on Sunday that she “photographed a wedding this weekend and I hope the pictures turn out.” Hope the pictures turn out? Really?
Please, please, hire a professional! Don’t trust your amateur friends just because they have a nice camera. They have no idea what they are doing. Yes, its nice to save a few dollars, but if you want your special day captured in photos (or video) properly, don’t entrust them with your once-in-a-lifetime event.
Trust me, your friendship is not worth losing because your pictures didn’t turn out.
