There are many benefits to having two photographers on your wedding day, and it’s becoming more and more common in modern weddings. This is why ProPhoto by MK collections include a second photographer…so you don’t have to worry about missing a moment! Today we are sharing why two photographers are better than one!
Why is having a second shooter so important at their wedding?
One photographer just can’t be in two places at the same time, which can be a problem if you want pictures of 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. With two photographers, you won’t miss any of those special and fun moments. You can also get pictures of the bride and groom’s faces at the exact same moment as the bride enters the room, a feat which is difficult for a single photographer.
With a second shooter, you can get different picture styles at the same time. This is especially important when it comes to capturing multiple angles of the first look. It’s great to have one photographer focused on groom’s reaction, while also focusing on the bride.
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.
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.
Having two shooters 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.
There you have it! You can see why having a Second Photographer to assist in getting a variety of angles is so important.
