Will There Be a Second Shooter, a Stationary Camera or Any Other Backup Cameras on Hand for Our Wedding?

There should always be a minimum of two cameras at each wedding. Some companies do provide solo shooter packages, but even then two cameras are a necessary. The obvious reasons are for multiple angles and in case something should happen to the one camera, you have another. But really, it’s a quality issue as one camera on a speaker during a reception doesn’t/can’t show the expressions of the bride and groom. It’s also just boring.
We at Fisheye Studio employ a minimum of two videographers throughout the day as it is virtually impossible to capture all the things that happen on the day of wedding as they often happen simultaneously. Two examples: the first is that the bride and groom are getting ready in different locations and would need someone there with both of them. The other is that during cocktail hour, photos with the bride and groom are often taking place, as well as the final touches to the reception venue. We mandate that all three of those are captured to be able to show the wedding day as accurate as possible.
