Anna Durrant Photography | The advantages of having a second shooter

The advantages of having a second shooter

May 18, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last weekend we photographed a wedding in the lovely May sunshine in Dorset. EVERYTHING was beautiful! I'm sharing a couple of pairs of pictures with you today that really show the benefit of having a second shooter to capture a different angle. My husband, Simon, helps me on weekend weddings, he drops me off with the women preparing for the big day while he goes off and photographs the groom and men getting ready. He then stands at the head of the church, or ceremony room, and photographs emotions that I have no idea about, standing at the end of the church where I'm able to take in the full view of the church and the proceedings. This is what I mean:

Another example is the confetti throwing. This time, whilst I did my usual trick of walking backwards down the confetti tunnel trying my best not to crash in to guests, Simon went down the outside and because he is so tall, he managed to take pictures over the heads of most of the guests.

I think I prefer Simon's shots - what do you think?
