Do I Need A Second Photographer for my Wedding?
With the bride and bridesmaids all getting ready together these can make for some fun and lovely photos, shots of the bridesmaids helping the bride put the dress on, drinking wine together with the emotion and excitement of the day captured through photos. With a single photographer they will be with the bride all morning as they get ready capturing those beautiful moments.
Have your main photographer capturing the bride getting ready, with a second shooter with the groom.
However… what about he groom? If they are getting ready somewhere else then this is where a second shooter is useful, you have your main photographer capturing the bride getting ready, with a second shooter with the groom, best man and the rest of the guys. In this instance it depends how important some photos of the guys getting ready is, their getting ready shots maybe more limited, and lets be honest they don’t take that long to get ready. That being said there are still some great moments for great shots so why shouldn’t they be captured too?
