My fiance is opposed to spending any money on a photographer/videographer, he feels that they are a huge waste of money. His friends have convinced him that we will never watch the video, or look at the photos. I really want both and although we are both paying for this wedding on our own, I am willing to put in more money to have what I want. My friends have told me that I must give in and allow him this one concession (I've controlled the whole wedding process up to now) but it's something I am not willing to give up. Any suggestions on how we both can win- and save this upcoming wedding?

You could always use a photo-sharing app and let your guests take photos (kind of like disposable cameras, but way easier and cheaper). All the photos get sent to an online album and you can print what you like. They won't be professional quality, but you'll still get hundreds of pics! We're using PhotoOpp Bride Edition.
