Why Two Photographers are Better than One for Your Wedding
There are many benefits to having two photographers, and it is becoming more and more common in modern weddings. Why do some couples decide to have a second shooter at their wedding?
1. Logistics. One photographer just can’t be in two places at the same time, which can be a problem if you want pictures of both the bride and groom getting ready. Since the bride and groom get ready in different locations, this means one of them probably won’t get professional pictures. If having pre-ceremony photos of the bride AND the groom are important, you’ll want two photographers. With two photographers, you won’t miss any of those special and fun moments. Having two photographers is also helpful at the reception. With so much going on, it can be hard for one photographer to catch every interesting moment as it happens.
2. Candid shots. While one photographer is focusing on the more formal pictures, the other one can walk around getting candid shots. These pictures are usually very fun and lively, and are great for your wedding album.
3. Style. With a second shooter, you can get different picture styles at the same time. Two photographers can shoot the ceremony from different perspectives, giving you a wider variety of images to enjoy later. For example, you may want some close-ups of the ceremony, but you think it would also be neat to have pictures taken from above in the balcony too. With two photographers, this is easy. One can take pictures from the balcony while the other takes them from below.
