3 REASONS TO HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER AT YOUR WEDDING

Do You Need Two Photographers for Your Wedding?

Wedding planning is a roller coaster of emotions. Some things just seem to connect and go as planned, while others seem to take a lot of work to perfect. When it comes to choosing your photography, do you need two photographers for your wedding? This question runs through almost every bride while wedding planning. As photographers, we believe the answer is an outstanding YES! Here are a few reasons why:

1)      Aspects/Details – You want to make sure that everything is captured on your wedding day, from detailed shots to candid ones. Let’s face it, having two photographers means that more will be captured! This works out great for the bride and groom because the more ground covered, the more pictures taken, and the more pictures taken, the more of a selection the photographers have to choose from.

2)      Getting Ready – No photographer can be in two places at one time and for this reason alone, it makes the decision of one vs. two photographers simple. You should have pictures taken of both the bride and the groom getting ready and although the photographer can go back and forth between rooms, in their absence from the other, great shots could be missed.

3)      Angles – With two photographers taking pictures during the ceremony, multiple angels of the same shot can be achieved. For example, one photographer can capture the bride’s smile as she enters the aisle, while the other captures the groom’s reaction to her immaculate beauty.

From our experience with wedding photography, we believe that two photographer is always better than one! Our wedding collections include two photographers. My husband and I work together as a photography team to ensure that every single moment of your wedding day is captured on our cameras. Throughout the years we have developed a system that allows us to know where the other is at all times as well as what details/shots will be captured by each other. This is the most important day of your lives and we want to make sure that no detail is missed. We hope that this has given you some insight for choosing your photographer(s) for your wedding. Thanks for reading and happy planning!
