One of the most common questions we are asked when Brides & Grooms are meeting with us is “Will we have two photographers?” or “Do you two work as a team?”
Here’s Our Answer:
Even though we could be shooting more weddings by working on our own… We choose to work together!
This is a decision we made from the very beginning…5 years ago!
Yes photography is our JOB but it is also our passion (a passion that we share). We love driving to the wedding and talking about what is in store for us that day. Talking about the details and throwing ideas off each other! We love that during the day if one of us forgets how to string the English language into a proper sentences (yes…this sometimes happens to us) the other is there to fill in the blanks! We Love driving home after the wedding and talking about the couple, how in love they were, the first dance, what made us tear up the most (and possibly we love stopping for cheese burgers)!
You will often hear of a FIRST and SECOND shooter( ie: a lead Photographer and their helper or assistant)
We are “First” and “First” shooters.
Sometimes one of us may take the lead… then next time, the other. One of us will take a step back and let the other get creative and vice versa.
We also know that if one of us takes the Bride and Bridesmaids to get their pictures and the other takes the Groom and Groomsmen, our style will match up and you won’t be able to tell whose pictures are whose. (We will sometimes try and claim an extra good image as our own but sometimes we don’t even know!)
Example: For this wedding Melissa was with the LADIES and Amanda was with the MEN and we both (without discussing it) decided it would be cool to get silhouette shots of the bride/groom getting dressed!
So there you have it…the answer simply – we love working together, we trust the outcome, we want the BEST for our brides and grooms.
BENEFITS TO THE BRIDE & GROOM:
Basically you’re getting two photographers for the price of one!
More pictures, more coverage, consistency!
