I shot my friend’s wedding this year, and it was a blast! I got to hang out with her and the bridal party all day, which was really fun, plus I got to see all the intimate moments of the day that you miss out on if you’re just a regular guest. I would just talk to her about it and see how she feels!

Another perspective–I have taken photos at a couple of friends’ weddings. I like being able to spend time with the bride and groom…but basically, being the photog means no drinking or dancing at the reception, as you are in a professional role. So it does cut down on the fun of being a regular guest. Definitely see how she feels. She would probably like the chance to get some shots for her portfolio, so you could hire a full-time photog and have your friend second-shoot the preparations/ceremony, and/or do a TTD at a later date.

I shot a friends wedding earlier this year and it was a blast!  They actually had a student photographer shoot their reception which was awesome for me because I got to hang out and enjoy myself.  That might be an option?
