Two photographers? Ahhhhh...NOW I get it!

For ten long and really awesome years, Eva shot weddings on her own and got pretty darned good at being in all places at all times. Or so she thought until Andrew Caldwell rocked up beside her with his camera one day and made her re-think everything.

Weddings are fast. They are unrepeatable, hugely significant and filled with unexpected things happening at lightening speed. Even though one awesome photographer can anticipate a lot of this, the simple physics of it are that they can't be in two places at once, or in one place covering two different angles.

We definitely want to remember seeing the bride walk down the aisle, but seeing the groom's reaction to that can be equally special.

It takes about 30 seconds for the bride to walk down the aisle, say goodbye to Dad and be handed over to another man. That's probably going to be the most significant 30 seconds of her life, the groom's life and maybe even Dad's. It's impossible for one photographer to do that moment justice.

Andrew covered the dramatic wide shot of the bride's entrance while Eva froze time on the groom's first view of his bride.

But with two of us working together we can track every expression on all those faces - especially the groom when he sees the bride in that first heart-stopping moment.

Two photographers also means they can spend quality time shooting documentary-style as you both get ready apart from each other. These images are some of the best - unscripted, emotional and jam-packed full of memories that you can later show and share with each other. Because you don't meet until mid-afternoon on your wedding day, we think it's important to document your time apart from each other well.

Two photographers in different places while you get ready enables you to share those memories with each other later.

And while making time for an epic creative session with the bridal party is an important part of the day, two photographers can reduce the time you need to be away from your guests by shooting the same moment in very different ways. Or you can choose to deploy your second shooter to spend time with your guests while Eva focuses on you.

Different photographers bring different skill sets and strengths to your wedding day. Eva's second shooter, Andrew, is a specialist in astroscape photography (check it out HERE, seriously, it will blow your mind). This means he really knows how to handle his camera at night and how to use darkness for dramatic advantage. And unlike an ‘add on second shooter’, Andrew and Eva work exclusively together at every wedding, so their creative process compliments each other in a way that works almost like ESP.

Sometimes it’s the little moments when people think the main photographer isn’t looking that you’ll treasure the most.

With more than 650 weddings behind her, Eva's goal these days is to always make the next wedding just a wee bit more awesome than the last. Working with another experienced professional beside them is the way they get that. It's how they roll.
