How many photographers do you need to capture your day the right way? Are you having one or two shooters?

    We paid our photographer as he usually works alone for engagement pictures and brings a second person for the wedding day. Count it a blessing given to us.

    Every photographer charges based on 1 or for 2 depending on how many guests and hours your looking to have them work.

    We are having 2 photographers and 2 videographers! We figured one photographer + one videographer can each film myself and the groom getting ready and since we're having 250 people at the wedding, the more people to capture - the better!

    We have decided on 1 photographer for 10 hours as that what fits our budget. We will time it carefully so he can take getting ready photos of both bride and groom

    And we only have 80 guests overall Smiley smile

    We'll also be having 2 videographers

    We're having two for 4 hours of our day (then just one for the other 4 hours of our photography coverage).

    I would have two if it’s a big wedding. One is fine for intimate weddings.

    Two!! I highly recommend two! They captured literally everything! We got the same photo from two different angles and it looked like two different photos. We were able to get everything from the ceremony. While we were doing our more formal photos after the ceremony the other photographer was with our guests getting shots there. When booking our photographer our #1 thing we wanted was 2 photographers. I wouldn't have hired just one.

    We have 2 shooters too. The main photographer is staying for most of the event and the 2nd shooter is leaving just before the reception, after all the formal photos.

    I only had one, but I would have loved to have two. It's nice to have different angles and different shots of the day.

    We're having two as well. It's a small ceremony so it may be overkill but, I figured we'd get a more well-rounded view of the day with two.

    Just the one - but we are also having a videographer for the ceremony so that we can capture the moment we become Husband and Wife Smiley heart Smiley ring

    We're having two shooters, they're a couple. That way we'll get more photos and different angles and as Kelsie mentioned, we can get shots of both of our reactions to seeing each other for the first time.

    We're doing two shooters as well, the second of whom is an old friend of mine. I think it's definitely worth having two to get moments the other might not catch.

    We’re having two shooters! It’ll be great to capture both of our reactions as I walk down the aisle!
