Response: Heather, being a professional who uses digital cameras, its not a question of how long the prints will last. The prints come from the same machine with the same paper and chemicals as the negatives. Keep in mind the digital camera and lab they use has to be high end - not consumer end cameras. Mine are several thousand dollars and produce files that I can print 30x40. I think better advice to ask your potential photographer is how long have you been in business, what style are you, do you bring backup equipment, do you have a business license... etc.. You have to feel connected and trust the person who you will entrust with this big job, not just worry about which model camera they use... Would you know the difference in the models anyway ? Get them to show you the albums you woud receive and see for yourself. Maybe a forward question, but would you ask your car mechanic which tools he is going to use on your car ? You wont know what he is showing you... If he or she is a pro, they will bring the best tools for the job and just let them do their job. I bring everything I own almost to my weddings. And that is several digitals, and the medium format film cameras as backups. Let me know if you want to continue the thoughts. Be happy to offer my perspective.
