​It’s finally time to start wedding planning! As we all know, expenses add up fast. There are plenty of handy tricks to stay within that budget, but a photography package provides snapshots of moments you will cherish for a lifetime, so it’s not the area to skimp on. Even if Wonder Woman is your photographer, she can only be in one place at a time. With a second shooter, the lead is able to expand his/her vision with the ability to be two places at once. 

Want a picture showing off the back of your dream dress while you walk down the aisle, but also want to preserve that look on your face as you lock eyes with the love of your life waiting for you? With a second shooter, you don’t have to choose! Moments can be captured from two places at once, two angles at once, and two perspectives at once. Not to mention, if one shooter doesn’t notice some stray hair in someone’s face or a dress malfunction, there are reinforcements to make sure everything is perfect even during your most important moments.

This might sound like all the reason you need to lock in a second shooter, but there is a extra practical element as well. Time tends to get away from you on the big day, so having a second shooter allows for double the efficiency when capturing portraits and formal group photos of family, friends, wedding party members, and of course the bride and groom. You'll be able to complete your group and family shot list in up to half the time it would require if you only had a lead photographer. This is especially handy if you see not-so-convenient weather creeping its way toward you and are strapped for time!

Whether it’s a larger selection of photos you want or you just reeeeally want to make sure you don’t miss a single irreplaceable moment, a second shooter is essential on your most special day.
