Although used in some cases for picture retouching and perfection (elimination of red eyes, reducing skin imperfections in photos), there doesn't have to be something wrong with a picture in the first place to require the use of Photoshop. Since I'm talking about wedding pictures here, lots of times, it's the added effects that make the difference between an ordinary picture and one that has a little something extra added to it.

Overall, Photoshop does wonders for photographs. The effects that can be achieved with this tool are truly amazing and the possibilities of creating something unique and elegant when it comes to wedding pictures, are endless.
