In my packet, I already include a second shooter as part of the deal. Why? There are many reasons that I want to share with you. Here are a few of them:
1. You now have two people documenting your special day, instead of one. This results in more images with a different view and angle of the day from my second shooter. The majority of the time he/she is shooting from a different perspective. So, if I am shooting family portraits, they are shooting other details of the family at the same time.
2. I cannot be in two places at once. For instance, let's say that the groom is getting dressed at another location than the venue where the bride is getting ready, I can't possibly document both at the same time. My second shooter will go to the second location and shoot those details; therefore, we are documenting every part of the day.
3. Worst case scenario. My second shooter and I get in our vehicles, head home, and immediately upload our images. Somewhere along the way, a memory card has corrupted. This has never happened to me (knock on wood), but it could. Technology is a great thing, when it works. The likelihood of that happening to all memory cards are slim to none. Although I frequently change memory cards during a wedding to prevent a total loss, I would still have the second shooter's images to present to the bride and groom. You can never be too careful.
4. Memories that happen too fast. Let's face it, some couples kiss for a substantial amount of time, others do not. There are moments where my second shooter might catch something on the other side of the room that I did not see, hence more memories to look back on.
5. A person to talk to and bounce ideas off of. In the instance a location is unavailable, I can send my second shooter to scout out a different location with good light. He/she will already know my style and will understand what I want.
I hope this helps! May you all have a great evening!
