Couples often wonder if they need a second photographer

 

  With a second photographer, you would get a large variety of interesting images in your gallery  that would  not normally be possible if there was only one photographer to cover a full day wedding

Before my own wedding season kicks off every year I love to do some second shooting to get back into the swing of things. I like spending time finding interesting moments to photograph that contribute to capturing the atmosphere and uniqueness of the day. The main photographer cannot always take these lovely shots as he/she has to focus on the wedding couple and their family.

I have recently had the opportunity to do some second shooting for Absolute Photo UK. Howard Treeby and I managed to take beautiful images of Noel and Emma’s wedding at The Priory, Little Wymondley, Hertfordshire. While Howard focused on the important key photographs such as all the required group shots and portraits I had the chance to snap some details and wonderful candids of all their guests. Earlier in the day, I spent some time with the groomsmen in the Priory gardens while Howard was capturing all the bridal prep nearby.

Working together allows for moments and emotions to be captured from all angles when you make that grand entrance, your first kiss, the confetti exit and your first dance together.
