have any of you married bees had one photographer and been in 2 different areas of the city for your morning shots? My Fiance is staying at our home and getting ready there the morning of our wedding. I’ll be close to our venue and although I’m ok with not having shots of my hair being done, I hope that our schedule works out so that he can get some pictures of the makeup artists and me getting dresses. I will admit, this is making me really nervous. We couldn’t afford two photogs and I really wish we cut somewhere else to have the second. I’m worried that it won’t work out and there will be tons of pics with him and his boys but none of me and the girls getting ready.
Is that ridiculous?

What pictures exactly do you want of him getting ready? Guys getting ready doesn’t really need a lot of space so maybe he could just do it at the location where you are getting married in the bathroom or something? Or would group shots of him and the guys be enough?

Fiance wants shots of him shaving and getting his tux on…and he refuses to budge on getting ready at the best man’s house or the venue. I wish he would get dressed there!!

That’s so frustrating! I don’t know how you could get pictures of both at the same time unless you happen to have a friend who is a decent photographer to follow one of you around.

I have the same problem! I only have 1 photog and originally I wanted to have FI’s getting ready shots. My photographer mentioned it’s possible if we are getting ready at the same house/hotel/area.

I actually tell my brides in this situation up front that in order to get shots of both bride and groom getting ready they need to purchase a second shooter. Otherwise, it’s bride getting ready and that’s it. You are very lucky if you have a photographer who is willing to drive cross town to try and do both. I’d be terrified I’d get stuck in traffic or lost and then you’d have shots of NEITHER, which is why I just don’t do it. I’m sure it’s not too late to ask your photog if you could add a second. See if maybe she can get you a less experienced newbie to go with the guys for a few hundred extra. Best of luck!
