A wedding day is a big day, a long day for all involved with the wedding party. From an early start photographing the bride/groom getting ready, throughout the ceremony, and portrait photographs and then into the party itself along with its formalities. We must remember to also consider the photographer themselves. While Steph is extremely experienced at working the hours and doing a fabulous job of roving to capture as much as possible, she will still need to take necessary breaks. When the wedding is larger, the additional photographer will ensure that the celebrations are still being well covered.
