Why Two Photographers are Better than One

There are many benefits to having two photographers, and it’s becoming more and more common in modern weddings. Why do some couples decide to have more than one photographer at their wedding? 


One photographer just can’t be in two places at the same time, which can be a problem if you want pictures of the bride and groom getting ready. Since the bride and groom get ready in different locations, this means one of them probably won’t get professional pictures. With two photographers, you won’t miss any of those special and fun moments. You can also get pictures of the bride and groom’s faces at the exact same moment as the bride enters the room, a feat which is difficult for a single photographer. 

Having two shooters is also helpful at the reception. With so much going on, it can be hard for one photographer to catch every interesting moment as it happens. 

Candid Shots

While one photographer is focusing on the more formal pictures, the other one can walk around getting candid shots. These pictures are usually very fun and lively and are great for your wedding album

Style + Variety

With a second photographer, you can get different picture styles at the same time. Two photographers can shoot the ceremony from different perspectives, giving you a wider variety of images to enjoy later. For example, you may want some close-ups of the ceremony, but you think it would also be neat to have pictures taken from above on the balcony too. With two photographers, this is absolutely achievable. One can take pictures from the balcony while the other takes them from below. 

These and many more reasons are why Cedar & Sage always includes two photographers in every wedding collection! We are avid believers in having multiple perspectives to the day and having more opportunities for candid photography. Contact us today for your dream wedding!
