Absolutely. All of our packages have two photographers by default and we’ll add a third in custom packages if it’s needed. Generally I bring the same second shooter to most of my weddings. It’s important to have a good relationship with a second shooter and trust them to represent our brand. However, sometimes schedules don’t match up and we go to the bullpen to bring out another talented photographer to work with us.
Not every wedding, but occasionally we will bring an assistant as well. It depends on the timeline, scale of the venue, and if we’re going to need special equipment. In those cases it’s great to have someone working the bags while we shoot. In most cases it’s not needed, but it does make our day a little easier.
