Hey all! Hoping for some input on hiring photographers and videographers… should I be looking for a duo/ trio/ what have you that already have experiencing working together or is it okay to hire two completely separate people for those jobs? Thanks!!

    Vendors that do offer duo service is great for the price of 8 hours. 2 different vendors means more money to spend and for and extra to come out. I would have gone for the 1 vendor to do the duo service vs. 2 vendors which did cost $2300.

    I personally found that when you use teams that offered both, there's usually something about one or the other that I wasn't a fan of. But I could just be picky. If you found a team that does both and you're happy with their work, no reason to not choose them if the price works for you.

    If you're using two separate vendors, you have to communicate certain priorities to both vendors together. For example, (in my experience) some photographers believe their content should be given priority over the videographer's. This sometimes have led to the photographer pushing the videographer away for the "sweet spot" when shooting.

    I’m a wedding photographer currently planning my own wedding. I’d say that it’s not required to book photographer/videographer duo. If they’re professional, they will make it work. We know that you hired both of us to do a job and we aren’t going to hinder the other. I wouldn’t discount a great photographer just because they don’t have a videographer on staff.


    HOWEVER, that being said. A duo would definitely have more respect for each other and more open communication about what they need and when. They end up almost being mind readers and anticipating the other persons movements. Which would result in a more efficient day.

    Many have already worked together and there's no reason to hire a team that does both if you don't want to. You can also ask one or the other for suggestions and they'll promote companies they like working with and have a good product. I don't know anyone that has hired someone that does both, only seperate, and there's never been a problem (including us but our videographer was for live streaming the whole wedding).

    We found a company that does both together. My personal opinion is I wanted people who worked together, and they probably have strategies on how they do things.
