This really depends on what you want for your photos. Is it in your budget? Do you want pics of you and your Fiance getting ready? The photog can only do one or the other, unless there are 2. Do you want numerous angles? Do you want a higer number of pics? Two will get a lot more shots than one. Will there every be more than one thing going on at a time that you’d want shot?

If you don’t think it’s necessary, it probably won’t be. We’re having 2 photogs automatically, they’re a husband and wife team. They both do great work, and sometimes one captures a moment much better than the other. They also can be in more than one place.

It’s nice to have two photogs at the church.  At our church the photographers aren’t allowed to move around during the ceremony, so having two shooters was really important.

I would rather have two photogs for the family pictures and pictures beforehand, the church and the after pictures than the reception. I don’t want that many pictures of me dancing for the last part of the night, I’d rather have them when I look great!

I think it does come down to priorities 🙂 Our photog is almost the same amount as the rest of our budget, lol. But we’re having a cash bar and a pizza and chicken buffet, with homemade cake (My grandma’s a professional cake baker) and reception at a bowling alley… so we’re sacrificing in other areas.

If you can flip and have 2 at the ceremony and 1 at the reception I would recommend doing that. The different angles that two photographers were ablet o get really made for beautiful ceremony pictures. They were able to capture not only us but the guest and church as a whole.
