“Is one photographer fine, or should we have two?”
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Aristotle
When you have a photographer at a wedding they bring with them all their years of experience, and all their creativity from everything they have seen and done before. When you have two photographers they bring with them everything they would have brought before, but with a new element. They can now bounce ideas off each other to create truly breathtaking images. Times beyond counting have we seen one photographer have the perfect idea for a pose while the other has a great idea for the location that would best compliment said pose.
Getting ready images are now a piece of cake. Sometimes our couples will get ready in the same hotel with a floor separating them, and sometimes one is at their mother’s house and the other is in the church basement. With one photographer this is a logistical nightmare; with two it’s super easy to split up and meet back up after.
“Can we get the detail shots of the reception hall before guests arrive?” Most of the time the reception hall is finished with decor only an hour or two before the guests arrive. This means that it’s typically finished just as the ceremony starts. Then with guests leaving right after the ceremony and the photographer having to stay back for formal photos or to take photos of just the couple it becomes impossible. With two it’s super easy for one photographer to head off to the reception venue to take the detail shots and guest candids while the other photographer works with the couple back at the ceremony location.
