When we got engaged last year, we were really keen to keep costs down. My stepdad isn't a huge fan of my fiancé, and finds weddings awkward (great combo!) but when I mentioned booking a photographer, he said he'd like to do it as he has all the equipment and has photographed a couple of weddings before.
I agreed because I thought it would be a good way to keep him busy all day, but recently when I've mentioned to people that we're not hiring a professional, they've said I'll regret it.
we went and took some test shots at the venue so that he could check out lighting, and they looked fine, but now I'm really stressing that I should have paid out and booked someone.
Any advice?! X
