Have you thought about using a service to do it?

I am thinking about doing the same thing.  Originally I was going to use a polaroid and have them write a note on the bottom as our guestbook, but my wedding planner suggested the digital camera option with a printer.  (guestbook and favors killed with one stone!)  I have about 4 young girls coming to the wedding, so I think I am going to make this their “project”.  That way they are kept busy and will feel important and I wont have to worry about it 🙂

Maybe this is something your photographer can offer.

Also, if you have a mac there is a cool program on it called photobooth that will count down, so people know when to smile!

You can set the camera up on a tripod and have the guest use a remote. That is what we are planning to do.

We had a digital camera linked up to a computer that was running a photobooth program.  We had to pay ~100 for the program.  If you are interested, PM me and I will find the name. I just have to ask my husband.

So, basically, guests went into the ‘booth’ and stood in front of the camera.  They could see themselves in the computer monitor, which was nice.  They clicked the mouse to take a picture after a 2 second delay.  Then the picture showed on the monitor for about 5 seconds. Because of that, we didn’t need a printer.  People were satisfied just seeing themselves on the monitor.  We then uploaded the pics to the internet and sent everyone a link. 

It was a blast.  People LOVED the props.

It was a bit of work to set this up, logistically and technically.  My Fiance (at the time) and a good friend did the work on it. They are both very technically inclined.

We have been thinking of doing this too, but I am worried that people won’t get that into it. For those of you who have done it before, do people actually go for it? How did you communicate to guests that they should go get their pictures taken?
