Why you should consider having two Essex wedding photographers
There are lots of reasons why you may consider booking an experienced wedding photography team to photograph your wedding, Many of which you may not have even considered before. Sometimes people think their wedding is too small to warrant having two photographers and sometimes people are just unsure of the benefits. We have shot weddings with 7 guests and weddings with more than 200. It’s not all about the numbers, let me assure you.
When we mention that there are two of us, most people immediately think of the morning preparations. How wonderful that we can cover both the bride and the groom, or both partners getting ready before the ceremony. This is true of course, we can literally be in two places at once- but the advantages do not end there!
In fact, one of the most common reasons that our couples choose us is for dual coverage of their wedding ceremony. For couples planning to have a traditional bridal entrance, they would often like two angles captured. One of the bride walking down the aisle and one of the grooms reaction when he sees her for the first time. This requires having a photographer at the front and the back of the ceremony room.
Throughout the rest of the day, it is also handy having another pair of eyes. During the drinks reception for example one photographer can be covering natural reportage photographs of the guests whilst the other photographs key details such as the wedding cake and room set up. It also means things like group photos are more efficient as one shoots whilst the other rounds up the next group. During couples photos we can also tag team. Capturing different angles, acting as an assistant, chatting to and distracting the couple to create a more relaxed atmosphere.
Having two photographers is about so much more than just the wedding preparations on the morning of the wedding. If you’d like to read more about what we can offer as a wedding photography team, we have covered this subject on our blog.
Wedding photographers Essex based Sam and Louise Photography are available for wedding commissions all over the UK
Hi, we’re Sam & Louise! We’re a husband and wife wedding photography team in Essex. We have been photographing weddings together since 2011 and are now widely renowned as being one of the leading husband and wife wedding photography teams in the UK. In recent years we’ve even been named as being one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the country. That’s not too shabby is it!?
Our approach to wedding photography is simply; we want you to have the time of your lives. We want you to laugh until your sides ache and embrace the people you love more than anything else in the world. Weddings are all about celebrating the fact that your happily ever after is only just beginning. The thought of whisking you away from the fun and frivolities for the sake of faking a few formal photos makes our souls ache. We believe that rigid, structured perfection isn’t what weddings are about- it’s certainly not what marriage is all about! Hopefully you’ll be pleased to know that isn’t our style either….
Our style is all about spontaneity. It’s about capturing the moments between moments. All of the off the cuff stuff that’ll still be making your heart flutter in 30 years time. If we had to describe our style, we are without a doubt photojournalists. We strive to capture and tell the story of your day authentically and creatively- allowing you to relive every tear and triumph. We’re definitely not the types to pick up our bags and head for the door the moment the first dance is over, where’s the fun in that?
So what does that mean for you? Well, having a documentary style wedding photographer means you’re pretty much off the hook. No awkward posing or forced formality. It means that you’ll be free to enjoy your day with minimal interruption. Will we still capture the family group photos? If you’d like us to, of course. Our style is however aimed at couples who would like to keep the posed photos to a minimum.
If the prospect of being able to enjoy your day with minimal cringe factor sounds like what you’re looking for, we’d love to hear from you and chat about your plans. We’re available for wedding commissions all over Essex, or wherever your heart desires! You can find more examples of our work in our wedding gallery or alternatively over on our blog.
