@memo:  Also check out the community colleges near by and ask if they have any students that they would recommend (someone just said that for me and my videography dilema )

It also means she’d be I no candIds. I think it’s one of those things she might even think she wants to do but then gets tied down by it on the day

@memo:  yes, we just asked someone else (from our wedding party) to take the pictures after my brother set up the camera and everything. it worked out perfectly and saved us a bunch of money! and my brother was happy to do it for us

No way. She deserves to enjoy the event not work it. Even if she offered I’d decline.

Maybe she has a colleague or friend who she might recommend instead? I would mention to her that you really appreciate her expertise and would like her to assist in finding a photographer, but I do think it would be difficult logistically for her to photograph your wedding.

I read the title of the post and first thing that came to mind is hell no.  This is honestly probably the worst ideas I’ve ever seen about photography.  You want 0 photos of FMIL at ceremony, reception, dinner, groom-mother dance etc?
