Most brides and grooms prepare for the wedding day in separate spaces. If available, wedding venues provide space for the couple to get ready at the same location. Couples will also choose to have the bride ready at a one location like a family home or and the groom may get ready at a different location. It is nearly impossible for one photographer to be in two places at the same time. By including a second professional photographer, the main shooter will concentrate on capturing the bride and bridesmaids get ready and the second shooter would capture the groom and groomsmen.

Who doesn’t love having options? A second professional photographer will provide different angles in addition to the lead photographer. Some angles are close up details of the main scene. Other angles can lead to a totally different image. Check out the images below. I was capturing the image of the couple from the side while the second photographer was able to capture a unique perspective from the back. The couple received two great images!
