5 Reasons to Consider a Second Photographer

1.) Additional/Unique Portraits - What a nice surprise when the second photographer takes a quiet moment before the ceremony to capture images like this.

2.) Hello more candid photos - Nothing sweetens the deal like having more of what people request most!

3.) Photos Taken at Different Locations - A great use of the second photographer’s time is to have them document the groom/groomsmen prior to the ceremony while the main is with the bride/bridesmaids. Additionally, photos of the decorations/reception hall and potentially guests during cocktail hour is an excellent idea too.

4.) Different angles/perspectives - We see things differently, we photograph things differently.
You’d be amazed at how two photographers approach/document the same moment/pose.

5.) Less Stress for Everyone - Worry less about the photos - that’s what you hired us for! With two photographers, we will communicate and coordinate to ensure that one of us is there for the letter exchange, yard games and so on.

Kim + Mike

This couple knocked their Grand Rapids, MI engagement session out of the ballpark. They displayed so much class, elegance, and style. Additionally they were naturals in front of the camera. I had a blast taking those photos.  I had complete confidence that their Castle Farms wedding would be a dream to capture. It did not disappoint.

Absolutely loved how these gold sequin dresses complimented the bride and bridesmaids.

Those cupcakes..that cupcake display... a 10 out of 10

Often when I take the bride and groom for their portraits/photos, typically it's just the three of us. For this wedding, the Matron of Honor came along and helped with whatever was needed. She held the veil for the photo below - Kim asked if I'd take one photo including the Matron of Honor performing this duty :).  I absoulutely adored the appreciation and love the couple showed for their family and friends.

Mike & Kim, their wedding party, guests, and family were full of such positive energy! Above, two members of their wedding party got them to laugh in between shots - which lead to this candid photo. The venue, the wedding, the people - it was a wedding fit for a King & Queen.

A special thanks to the second shooter for this event,
