Two shooters means two perspectives...

A must if you have a large guest count, you're getting ready in two different locations, or you've invested in your details and want to re-live as much of the magic as possible through your wedding gallery.

All images taken by a second shooter are edited by the main shooter and delivered to you together in one gallery, in your main photographer's signature style. Choosing the right second is very important, that's why your main photographer will always source them and there will be an additional cost to your package. You'll also have to provide food for them, which is another cost to consider... but costs aside, second shooters can bring so much more to the table than just additional images.

When choosing second shooters for my own clients I have a pool of trusted assistants who I have trained to emulate my style and approach. I'll give clear guidance on where I want them to be, when - as to optimise how much ground we cover together. I'll also play to their strengths and what they love to shoot... that's to say I wouldn't necessarily pick the same assistant for a fashion led, party focused city elopement compared to a wedding with lots of young children.

My favourite thing about working with a second is the extra energy. Weddings are long days, and having someone to bounce ideas off is invaluable. When second shooting, the goal is to assist the main photographer and capture alternate angles or moments. There's less pressure which is magic in itself, as you get to be much more creative as the main photographer works hard to serve the client. You're also investing in more of the candid moments with a wider number of guests.

All weddings benefit from having that additional eye, but there are some in particular where I would always require a second shooter and I'll advise you on this when you get in touch.

Below I've attached a range of images that I took while second shooting for other photographers. Some of these images are amongst my faves ever taken...
