Also, if all of your guests are well known, why not provide a digital camera and encourage guests to use it when they like to take photos? At the end of the evening you will have enough photos for a scrapbook, in all likelihood, as well as some to mail along with thank you letters. The fun of ‘passing the camera’ is that you never know who will have it at which time and people are always taking pictures in ways that you might never have thought of.
