My wedding is upcoming and it seems photgraphy is so expensive I have two beautiful children and looking to move after the wedding to cut the costs I was thinking of using a digital camera to capture some memories Any idea of what brand? Have you done this at your wedding if so can I see a pic? I was gonna get the camera and print at my home any ideas..

what is your camera budget?
printing at home gets expensive and the quality is never as good. Bay Photo does a great job at printing digital prints.

If you aren’t picky about things such as camera quality (grainy, blurry, etc), or about photography skills such as angles, lighting, lenses, photoshopping, etc. then it’ll be fine. Again, you get what you pay for. And I have to agree with @cr8ingwaves: printing from home can get very expensive. However there are a few online sites which have good deals.
A acquaintance of mine isn’t picky and she’s on a tight budget so she just had family take pictures for her. She edited them herself, they turned out alright. Pictures weren’t fancy, unique, or out of this world. But they did the job, captured the moment, and did the job. She’s a happy camper and that’s all that matters.
Best of luck to ya!!

A good camera does not equal good photos. A good photographer can do a lot with a lower grade camera. But honestly, I wouldn’t shoot a wedding without a Canon EOS 50D, minimum, and a 25mm, 50mm f1.4, 100mm macro lenses, a really good speedlite flash, and a whole lot of experience.
There’s a reason photographers cost so much!

If I had to go super budget, i’d get a canon rebel and the 50mm f1.4 lens. Maybe that would be more helpful? On-camera flashes are terrible, though. I’d look into renting if you don’t want to buy – most big cities have good camera stores that will let you rent all of that equipment for fairly cheap. I’d rent it early and have time to get used to the controls, though.
