Is it worth the risk?
In my experience this is normally a friend who is a keen and well intentioned so what could go wrong? In most cases I am sure everything works out fine, but what if it does go wrong you could potentially lose everything.
It is very tempting to save costs and agree to a friend to take your wedding photographs, but before you do this you need to take a step back and ask yourself some questions:
What will I do if there is a problem and I don't get any wedding photographs?
What will I do if I do get some wedding photographs, but I can only use a few because the rest are out of focus or wrongly exposed?
What will I do if the friend has a problem and can't make it to the wedding?
Has this person ever photographed a wedding before?
Does this person have a professional camera?
As I said earlier, in most case everything will be fine, but the last thing you want on your wedding day is added stress and worry.
