Unless you have mucho dinero to spend on your wedding photography, a photographer who uses digital equipment is probably the best option. There are still some "boutique" photographers who shoot in film, but the level of experience to pull off photographs that are consistently as good those produced by pro digital gear (without ever having the benefit of reviewing your images on a LCD) is something they place a high premium on. For the sake of argument, there is some great value to film, as it tends to have a much more organic feel to it than digital and many people find it much more appealing, just as some musicians insist on using a fully analog signal in their instruments and microphones. The texture is the goal with film. However, using film on a high level is an extremely high-end service and few can afford a film photographer that will produce the results the industry has come to expect.
