This is a question we get asked a TON, so we decided to put together a blog post about why a second shooter might be beneficial for your wedding day! As wedding photographers in Maui, we have seen so many different types and sizes of weddings, with differnet timelines, values, and more! So we’ve seen all the different ways bringing a second shooter onto your photography team can impact your day!
If you’re planning a wedding and have started looking at wedding photographers, you’ve most likely heard about the option of a “second shooter” by now! If not, it’s basically an additional photographer that works with your lead photographer on your day!
So now that you know how a second shooter could benefit your wedding or elopement day, we really encourage you to think about things like, size of your wedding, amount of coverage you’d want, logistics of locations, if you value different perspectives, and what parts of the day are most important to you! It is really beneficial to look at those factors and then you can make the decision about whether or not you’d like one!
So while we don’t have a 100% yes or no answer, since the answer is dependant on how you answer those factors above. At the end of the day, a second shooter is going to be another talented photographer documenting your day, so that’s always a good thing!
We’d love to help you out if you’re still on the fence about this, so comment below or send us an email and we will be happy to help!
