I mean seriously! Why hire a Professional Wedding Photographer when your friend can click it for you? When you have a camera yourself? Why Pay a Photographer for just coming to your wedding and Clicking?
Well due to Photo Technology coming in cheap, everyone is a Photographer these days, this doesn’t have to be bad, but many are Hobbyist and Amateurs and don’t have experience of how to capture one particular moment during an event, or don’t know how to frame a moment, will you be willing to give the responsibility of capturing your wedding to someone like that?
Professional Wedding Photographers have more experience and know workarounds in such tight situations, have more knowledge and more framing sense. Expect utmost professional outputs from them, yes I know your Friend is a very good photographer, maybe even a professional one, but unless you hire them, will they be willing to capture your wedding thoroughly? And put in same amount of professionalism and efforts as they will do when they get hired? No, they are there to enjoy your wedding and let them do that 🙂 You get Better Photos (Right Settings + Perfect Moment = Awesome ) , you just enjoy your day without worrying where the photographer is as they will be right on time and have the event details and everything planned beforehand.
So go on and try to preserve your precious day in a way which will make it memorable , make it such that you will be bound to view the album again and again , fill it with moments which you will cherish for life , pictures which are not only clicked for the sake of documenting but for the purpose of reliving the moment you loved and choosing the right photographer will certainly help you to get started 🙂
