Second Photographer

It seems that getting married nowadays has become more and more expensive. Most of the couples-to-be would say that they would be willing to splurge as much as they can for their weddings' photo coverage. They would say that invaluable moments captured by those pictures would be worth the expense.

Aside from getting the most sought-after wedding photographer, however, more couples are now hiring a second photographer for their weddings.

As we all know, the official wedding photographer may take months before he could turn over the wedding album. We all understand that. Wedding photographers are busy as a bee nowadays. Enhancement of some pictures may also take some time.

Now, comes the second photographer. The second photographer is, most of the time, a hobbyist. His rates is way below the official wedding photographer's. The biggest bonus is, you'll be able to reminisce your wedding in about a day or two because the second photographer will give you the raw pictures.

Sounds good, right? I am now contemplating on paying a few bucks more to get the head of a certain photographer's group or paying the same amount to a second photographer.

What do you think?

Hey Happy!
Its really an honured someone reads my humble blog!. I guess wedding in Philipines is not much different in Malaysia. We also always get 2nd photographers. When i got married last year, i actually had to wait 4 months after to get to see my wedding photos. Luckily i had 2nd photographer (well actualy i have th 3rd too).. I must said that i agreed with Toby!.. Marriage is one in a lifetime.!!

Hi Happy,
A second photographer can actually make a difference...During our wedding, although our budget was only for one main photographer, Rene Gaviola gave us an equally superb associate photographer FOR FREE :)
