With the quantity of point and shoot cameras during wedding events, are not the wedding pro photographers running the risk of being redundant? Pravin
Thank You & Kind Regards

No! There is a lot more to quality wedding photography than just owning a camera--point and shoot or Pro camera.

PraVin, it´s a general issue that due to digital photography lots and lots of people do their stuff by themselves. More so as DSLR´s are getting cheaper and cheaper with very good IQ. That said lots of people don´t rely on uncle, grandpa, brother or best friend when it comes to serious stuff like weddings. They may not book the biggest package a photographer may offer, they may also skip the photobook and other gimmicks but they´ll definately ensure that their most important day in life will be covered in the best possible way (which excludes all non-pro photogs). So, even if DSLRs become as cheap as P&S and have a "wedding program" they won´t make pro photogs (no matter what field) redundant.
Cheers
