Double the exposure with two photographers

Double the exposure with two photographers

Your wedding day is one of the most important events of your life and after it’s over, what do you have left to remember it by? Memories and …. photos! The benefits of having two photographers to record your special day means that you will get twice the experience, twice the creativity.

Having a second photographer has many benefits. Two shooters can capture things that happen simultaneously. The second photographer can focus on the groom’s face to record his reaction when he sees the bride for the first time, while the main photographer is taking photos of the bridesmaids walking down the aisle one by one.

Having two shooters also allows you to have two different angles of the same scene, for example: you can get photos of the bride walking down the aisle from both the front and the back, as well as a wide angle, while all the guests look on.

Just by standing at a different angle than the main photographer, a second shooter can capture virtually the same photo, but with a totally different lighting situation, giving you a different feel to the same photo.

A second shooter might choose a different lens than the main photographer, or choose to stand in a different spot, or focus on a different area, creating a totally different feel to the photo. A second photographer might see things that the main photographer has missed because they are busy with the bride and groom.

Another good reason to have two photographers at your wedding is if one person’s equipment fails at a crucial time. There is always the possibility that something could happen that’s beyond the photographer’s control, and if there are two photographers, then at least there is still another person there as a back up to capture the action, ie. if the main photographer’s flash fails during the first dance, then the second shooter can step in and take the photos before the song ends and it’s all over.

One photographer will usually concentrate on the main events, while the other is looking for candid shots of guests, or photographing all the little details that you spent so much time and money on. a second shooter can capture things that the bride and groom might miss out on seeing on the actual day.

So, this is why I will always recommend having a second photographer on your wedding day. After all, it’s the photos you will look back on once the day is over, and having an extra set of eyes looking out for special moments is worth the extra money for a lifetime of memories.


Each of our Collections comes with a team of two photographers.

Sometimes, there are just too many things to catch at once. Having a team of photographers ensures that most things worth capturing on film are, even if they happen at the same time. Moments like the bride walking down the aisle and the expression of the groom and the guests are photographs you do certainly do not want to miss out on.
