Wedding Photography Tips – Get another shooter / photographer. Most brand new wedding photographers skip hiring a “second shot” to back them up on wedding days. If you are able to make it happen financially, it’s surely worth the money to hire a different photographer to utilize on the wedding day.
The photos will be better, you’ll have another set of equipment in the event of disaster, and you’re extremely unlikely to miss the shot.
There is an easy and cheap method to employ a second shooter. Email some regional photographers who may be starting out and ask them if they would love to exchange services for each other. You take second to them, and they can shoot second for you.
