dear bride x do you need a second photographer?

Rachel Wakefield, Dear Bride Series

Dear Bride,

There are so many decisions to make when you are planning for your wedding.

Decision after decision for venue, cake artist, florist, invites, accessories, rehearsal dinner, and the list goes on! It is unreal how overwhelmed you can get in such a short amount of time planning for just one day.


My word, I feel your anxiety just thinking about it. 


Picking a photographer can be a challenge in and of itself, let alone picking OPTIONS from that photographer. How are you supposed to know what is best? The majority of you have never had to do all of this before.

Second Photographer for Wedding Day

It really comes down to two questions. 

1. Will you and feel more comfortable having two photographers vs one?

2. Are you afraid of missing moments?

If you answered yes to either of those questions then you are probably going to feel more comfortable telling your photographer you need a second shooter. A lot of times photographers have no problem adding a second photographer to the day, and they usually won't break the bank for a little extra peace of mind. 

Two Photographer Examples

Same moment. Two points of view. 

Ultimately the choice can be yours. Don't over think it and go with your gut! A second photographer can be a great option!
