My 2 Photographers...


I always knew that our family photographer would be the main photographer of our wedding!

We are definitely not the Royal family or the President however we do have a photographer that has taken most of our family events and functions. However, a friend of mine also knew a photographer that we used for our engagement pictures!
And i have always wanted a photographer all to myself and of course i felt that Mr. Pancakes should have his own photographer.  In the end i am glad we did this because each photographer had time to spend with us separately and was able to capture some amazing moments during our wedding. There was of course some tension because i did not have time to introduce the photographers so i think there was some tension during the ceremony.  I believe during some moments they were in each others way however needless to say, there were some amazing pictures taken! 

If you chose to use two photographers (from differing companies):
1. Have them talk to each other before the wedding!
2. Tell each of them the shots you want both of them to take.
3. Use their time wisely
4. Enjoy being photographed the whole day!!!

That's a really good thought! Now, how come I've never thought of that? :( Should have had a photographer all to myself. :( I wanna get married all over again!

You know I wish I had done two photogs instead of one. She was so completely over worked I felt bad. Though she did capture tons of shots and had an assistant with her she preferred for the assistant to only hold items (props, tools etc) she didn't let her assistant take any photos (in that regard she is a control person I guess). But our shots did come out fab. I love your shots, nice black and white silhouette.

Hey Mrs. Pancakes! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate the congrats.
If there's one thing I regret from my wedding day and/or short engagement it is that we didn't hire a photographer. I would love to have more photos of those special times. My husband is a photographer, but it's difficult to be the one taking pictures and the one in the pictures!

Oh I'm so happy for you!! Congrats :)

I never thought of the dual photographer thing - what a great idea. And I love how the styles are so different.

Thanks for coming by. It's true, God always does even things out and provides when you really need it or call on Him. Because of that post I wrote, one of my blog friends suggested a remedy that has made me headache-free for the first time in years. :)

Following you for sure!
