I wouldn’t touch that with a 10-ft pole.  It’s her wedding, her money, her decision, and none of your business.

Perhaps you could suggest that she hires someone to just photograph the ceremony, and her father could photograph most of the reception and some of the formal pictures.  That way he can still be involved, but still take pictures as well.

I think what you do is express your concerns for how you think this might not work out perfectly and let her make the decision herself.  Just tell her – you just realized, there’s going to be no one around to take pix of the ceremony b/c he’ll be walking her down the aisle and that he might miss out on all the fun if he’s “working” the whole night.  Let her decide what she wants to do with that info.

I would only offer my opinion if she asked what I thought about it.

I woudn’t necessarily give her too many opinions unless she asked.  But we specifically “banned” both our sets of parents from taking any photos of our wedding.  Reasons for this were 1) we didn’t want every picture of our parents obstructed by them holding up a camera and 2) we wanted them to just BE in the moment, experiencing everything, not distracted.
