# of Photographers I always bring a 2nd, professional photographer with me to weddings. This is so we can capture different angles and different areas simultaneously.
Guarantees presence at event: Yes, of course ;)
Books >1 event per day No, never. I want to be able to give my bride the attention she deserves from the point-of-booking to her actual wedding day. I only book 1-2 weddings per month but prefer to only book one. It is my 100% intention to give my clients ample customer service and amazing photos.
Replacement photographer: Yes. I will make sure to use a professional photographer with my same style of photography if I become too sick to be there that day. Let's hope that doesn't happen ;) But if it does, I am covered!
Equipment Used: I shoot with all Canon cameras, Mark ii and Mark iii, prime lenses & 2 sets of flashes.
Charges: I can do both.
Shooting Overtime: Yes, it depends on the existing package as I would pro-rate the hourly rate per what she paid in her package. It usually comes out to be less expensive to book more hours.
Break Policy: Taking a break is rare, only if we need to use the restroom. And that is why having a 2nd photographer is key ;) We don't miss a moment!
Charges for travel: Depends where the travel is but if out-of-state, yes, understandably so ;)
