Few brides would want to be frugal when it comes to wedding photos, as they provide everlasting memories. We, too, are hesitant about advising people to attempt saving money on wedding photos; however, with the rates rising dramatically on professional wedding photography, this service may be too expensive for some brides to handle.

For the bride on a budget, here are some ways to cut costs on your wedding photos:

1.) Search Among Your Family or Friends for a Photographer. There is certain to be somebody who is into photography and owns better equipment than ordinary folks normally have. Try to find a relation who takes good photos and you can ask him to help out. You should employ the services of the persons who are willing to assist to trim your wedding expenses. If you do find somebody, be sure to speak with them in advance and make him/her aware of any particular poses you desire.

2.) Contact the Local University to Hire a Photography Student. The chance to add some photos to their portfolio by photographing an event will delight them. They are not professionals, but you can count on them to have fresh and creative ideas which can translate to memorable photographs.

3. Providing your attendees with single-use cameras is another alternative. At every table, provide a themed single-use camera in order for attendees to snap pictures. You'll get pictures taken from a variety of viewpoints, and you can select your favourites. Appoint a single person to collect the cameras and have the pictures brought in for developing.

4. In the event that you need or insist on a professional photographer, check around and get in touch with a number of them. See what they can offer for the amount you can pay. The reaction might actually surprise you. Putting a limit on the amount of pictures taken saves on expenses for photos.
