It helps to have a second photographer at a wedding – you have two people trying to photograph everything and everywhere. I am quite the ninja photographer and can try to be everywhere all the time – but I can’t be two places at once. So when you have two people you can be in multiple locations.
As a second photographer I can capture things as simple as basic textures and patterns like these flowers on the cement. It is simple but I love to look at this photo. The texture just speaks to me.
I have also been the second photographer when the main photographer’s camera broke – and they didn’t realize till after the wedding that half their photos were damaged. So I have definitely been some good luck for other photographers. “Bleep happens” and you want to be prepared. A second photographer is insurance.
