Because there are so many moments, so many people and so many angles during your wedding day, the second photographer ensures coverage of every part of your day. Oftentimes the bride and groom get ready at the same time and I can't be in two places at once! While I take photos of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready, the second photographer is available to take photos of the groom and his groomsmen. I highly recommend hiring two photographers to document your day!
Some brides and grooms prefer to see each other for the first time down the aisle — this is a very traditional, classic option. But this leaves little time for family, bridal party and wedding couple photos to be taken after the ceremony. Photos are often rushed and/or guests are left waiting for the bride and groom to return to the reception!The first look helps solve this timing issue. The bride and groom would meet before the ceremony, but we would still capture that 'first look' of excitement when the groom first sees his bride, and when the bride first sees her groom. From there, the wedding couple and I would take as many photos as possible before the ceremony. The photos could include the bridal party or they could just be photos of the bride and groom. This lessens the amount of photos that need to be taken after the ceremony, allowing ample time for family photos and portraits.
