Normally, I’m a kind of one-girl show on wedding days, but last year I ran across a bit of a problem there. I was coming up on 7 months pregnant with an all day wedding on the books and I knew I needed help to make sure everything ran smoothly. Luckily, I have a few great photographer friends in the community and Jessica (from Busy Bee Photography) quickly swept in to my rescue! She was an amazing assistant helping me with my heavy bag of lenses and gear and a fabulous photographer as well! Her photos of the first look and ceremony complimented mine perfectly and gave a great unique perspective that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get. We had such a blast working together that we decided that we had to do it again!
So… I am so excited to announce that this year I have added a second photographer option into my wedding packages! (Go ahead and click that Contact Me tab at the top for more details on Wedding Packages)
Let me introduce you to the lovely Jessica! Doesn’t she just look fun?! Well, she totally is!
So why should you think about hiring a second photographer for your wedding?
There are many reasons! First of all, the second photographer (also often called second shooter) makes it possible to get coverage of two events happening at the same time. Often the bride and bridesmaids are getting ready at the same time as the groom and groomsmen and we would be able to cut down on overall time spent on the formals by getting that done simultaneously.
Additionally, you’ll get a greater variety of images. I can only be in one place at a time (shocking, I know!). But with a second shooter you’ll be able to get both the bride and groom’s reactions to the ‘first look’ like we did here with Josh and RaeLyn’s wedding, and I love that she can catch different angles during the ceremony so that I can stay a little more stationary (thus creating less distraction from you).
Overall, your wedding will not only have more shots, but also more creative shots. While I am focusing on getting all your must-haves and traditionals, my second shooter can look for the more unique angles and perspectives.
And if those aren’t reasons enough…I’m not ashamed to ask you to do it for me! She makes doing my job a little easier and less stressful, and I’d love to have her for all my 2014 weddings!
