Be warned, you wil get many posts telling you not to do this, and to go with a professional.  I have done a little semi-professional photography in the past.  Some of the first weddings I photographed were my favorites, and I think my best.  I hired a photographer that was new to the bussiness (my sister went to art school with her).  I would most certainly do your research on anyone you hire, see portfolios and so on.  But my images turned out lovely, she even printed out a book of my wedding to use in her viewing materials, and I saved a little money going with someone that was not yet established.

I would and plan to in my own wedding! As a upper division photography student I can tell you their are some super talented students. Students typically have exhibited in galleries and have workshop training under many talented proffessors and working artists. Often I think they can be more well trained than someone who taught themselves and just started shooting. However beware of a student in a photo one begginner class may not be the best option and a upper division student would be preferred.
