    Is a second shooter necessary?

    Hey! I'm wondering whether a second shooter is necessary for a wedding? My photographer insists on getting a second shooter to make sure everything is covered. Can I get some ideas here, especially from those who had second shooters at their wedding?

    Yes it's definitely necessary. but I think photographers really do bring a second photographer with them, it shouldn't be an additional charge. It should already be included in all of their packages.

    Surely it's helpful to have a second shooter. But if you have a really small intimate wedding, I think you can get away with just one photographer.

    Yes it's always better. It means two different perspectives.

    Not necessary but highly recommended. Most photographers bring a second shooter with them. it's just makes their job easier and makes sure everything important is covered.

    I think everyone agrees that a second shooter makes your wedding photography much better.

    A second photographer will usually be brought and their services come in a package so there won't be any additional charges

    talk to the main photographer.. usually they'd have a second photographer accompany them in shoots

    If yours is a small wedding, I think one photographer will be sufficient. If your is large wedding and need to cover more areas, two photographers will be good.
