“Does your wedding packages include a second shooter?” Well…let’s discuss what the words or title ” second shooter”, what it means or what it implies for most.
I get this question quite frequently from newly engaged brides-to-be who inquire about my wedding photography services. Over countless face to face consultations I’ve discovered that for most brides and grooms the term “second shooter” really doesn’t go much further than the reassurance that I will show up to their wedding with a second person who is operating a camera. You see, in most scenarios the future bride is most likely thinking “great….all angles will be covered and nothing will be missed if we have a second shooter”. Sounds awesome right? For me….the idea that “all angles will be covered and nothing will be missed” is quite frankly close to the bottom of the list of reasons why the bride and groom will benefit from having a “second photographer/ shooter”.
