Once you have been married for quite some time, your wedding photographer will likely offer you a Love Wedding Repeat option on their website. This is a great way to get your camera back in the same place as it was before the marriage and for you to enjoy a reminder of your wedding without having to spend a bunch of money on a new one. For most couples this is a great solution and would be great if you weren't already in the wedding photography business.
We are all accustomed to digital cameras now. While they still offer some great photo opportunities, it's a very different way to create a photo album. And I think this is one of the big reasons why people continue to buy new digital cameras and continue to be tied to the life of a photographer.
If you're not familiar with the software behind a digital camera and you're just learning to use your new lens, you're going to be spending a lot of time fiddling with the settings to get the right exposure and the perfect shot. The difference between a picture taken with a traditional camera and one that were taken with a digital camera is huge.
Of course, if you are a photo enthusiast, you know that if you take that "magic shot" that can turn a dull day into a memorable event, the difference is almost like night and day. While it might be the difference between getting an iPhone and a huge digital camera, it is a difference that is worth remembering.
However, many people like to experiment with their pictures in the early stages of their photography career so it makes sense to use this option of "having a reminder of our wedding on the website." There is something called the Serie system by Konica that lets you create a video on your computer with the help of the software to go along with your pictures. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of the production process.
For a wedding where the majority of the movie editing has already been done, this is really not a problem. For example, your parents may want to do something specific on the stage with their daughter's dress before the camera.
You might also want to include the wedding cake when talking about the wedding video, but that's not necessarily the case, so it makes sense to use your camera to produce the final picture. With this type of setup you can also save your wedding DVD, which you can bring to a picture store to get re-edited into a video.
After you have saved your digital cameras on your list of special offers, you will also want to keep your gear up to date. This is what is most important when you're moving from the "old school" of taking pictures to the more popular and easier "shot and release" style. Being an experienced and creative photographer, I've made a few mistakes along the way, but the important thing is to just "have fun" and learn from them instead of making the same mistake twice.
