Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but today I am HAPPY that it is almost the weekend! It’s been an unusually busy week for Tom and I, and this girl needs a break! Our week was filled with all good things, but it was definitely busy nonetheless!
Before we get rolling with this post, I want to make a disclaimer real quickly! If you read the title of this post, it might sound a little arrogant or even a bit lofty. And I just want to say that we know, follow and love some absolutely amazing photographers who are NOT a husband and wife team. The wedding photographer that WE chose for our wedding day was not even a husband and wife team! Being a husband and wife team is not the only way to be a good photographer. It’s what we do, it’s how we work best, and it’s what we believe gives OUR brides the best experience with us possible. But I just wanted to be super clear that we get this is not the only way to do business as a photographer!
All that being said, today we want to fill you guys in on the benefits of having a husband and wife wedding photography team for YOUR engagement experience and wedding day! Here we go!
1. There are two of us! While it’s totally possible for Jamie to photograph the groom and groomsmen getting ready and during their portrait time, the guys have much more fun hanging out with another guy! They’re also much more comfortable with Tom, and the girls are more relaxed spending a lot of the day with Jamie!
2. Tom hangs out with the groom and groomsmen and Jamie spends time with the bride and bridesmaids. To save time on the wedding day, we can split up in order to divide and conquer! For example, Tom can capture groomsmen portraits while Jamie photographs the details of the ceremony site, if the timeline requires this. Also, Tom can photograph the bridal details while Jamie photographs the girls getting ready! This is so important in order to make the best use of our sometimes limited time on a wedding day.
3. It saves time. We’ve been through a wedding (04.07.2006!) and can relate completely to how our brides and grooms are feeling! We run wedding days exactly how we would want ours to go, and our perspective as a recent bride and groom help SO MUCH with this. We hope this gives you guys a little perspective into why we’re so passionate about running our business the way we do! I know, crazy! It’s going to be FUN! Have a wonderful weekend you guys!
4. We get it. Instead of having to book and pay a second shooter, you automatically have two photographers for your entire wedding day! Having two photographers allows you to receive many more photos than one photographer could provide, and it allows us to capture the same moment from totally different angles and perspective. Win-win! (Tom and I also both are shooting during your entire wedding, so you’ll even get extra photos of your wedding day.) We’ll capture moments that you may have never even known happened.
