Capturing It All
Handing out disposable cameras to wedding guests so that you could capture a wide variety of perspectives and moments from the day is soooo passé.

You can always go back and download all of your tagged photos to add to your collection. This post from a recent bride over on A Practical Wedding explains the step-by-step process for crowdsourcing your wedding photos.
