On Saturday 6th June, I travelled to Inverness to meet up with Lenny Smith FSWPP (Fellow of the Societies of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) of Studio8 Photography to second shoot for him at the wedding of Claire & Neil from Aberdeen. The couple have spent a lot of time in Inverness previously, staying at Bunchrew House Hotel so it was an obvious choice for their wedding reception venue while they chose the stunning Inverness Cathedral for the ceremony.
Having an additional photographer allows different viewpoints of the day. While the main photographer is photographing the Bride & Groom the 2nd shooter can photograph the guests, the details of the cake, the top table etc as well as assisting the main photographer with the posing of the Bride and of course the all important placement of her dress. A 2nd Shooter can also capture the Groom’s and his Groomsmen getting ready for the Wedding.
If you’re planning your wedding it might be worth enquiring with your chosen photographer to see if they have an association with another photographer and the costs involved.
