Chaps if tour concerned about money then you are doing the wrong thing.....Ladies spend what yoy want you will soon have two incomes!
As a professional wedding photographer this is possibly the worst idea I can imagine. Wedding photography requires an entire different set of equipment, as well as additional storage for your images (each wedding I shoot is backed up onto multiple hard drives as well as cloud storage). Then there's the planning; it's always a good idea to let your photographer know exactly whats going to happen before it happens if you want it captured properly and with forethought. Editing the images takes much longer than for an event or family gathering, and then there's the pressure of creating images that can't be redone. The price of wedding photography reflects the thousands of pounds of equipment being used, insurance, transport, and accommodation the night before because I don't want a traffic related event beyond my control to effect the time I get there, hours of editing, designing albums, communicating with the couple beforehand, meetings, pre-wedding shoots... Plus what happens when they turn up under-prepared and are faced with shooting a wedding? Do you really want to annoy the person responsible for capturing those memories forever? Sorry but the more I think about this idea, the crazier it sounds... TLDR: DON'T tell your wedding photographer that they're shooting a 'family gathering'
Spend a fortune to look like a bog roll cover.
Do you factor in initial meeting time to discuss the wants and needs? What about equipment costs, including wear and tear, second body, editing time, assistant, taxes etc. I know wedding photography is expensive and yes it could be cheaper. Just making sure you are doing it cheaper but on an even footing. (PS I’m not a wedding photographer)
