All wedding photographers choose their equipment wisely. The reliability and the impressive quality of pictures are the two most important criteria of a professional camera. This is why the investment in the best possible gear is usually the cost of tens of thousands of euros. Using more than one camera increases the costs.
Why does a photographer need 2 cameras?
During weddings, photographers need to have eyes in the back of their heads and be able to react fast. Sudden lighting changes or a possibility of taking beautiful pictures from close proximity or from a wider perspective, don’t leave us with much time to change lenses or settings. During our work we have to be focused and use up our time to the max, to take the most beautiful pictures for you!

An experienced photographer and photos of excellent quality are another important factors which increase the price of the service. An experienced photographer makes sure your wedding day will be captured in the most stunning frames, where you and your love will be playing the leading role.

Workshops and courses
Enthusiasm and professional equipment don’t make a photographer. Of course, there are photographers who are naturally talented and can capture incredible frames. However, even they have to follow the latest trends and invest in self-development. Workshops and courses are yet another investment which, in return, makes the quality of your pictures impeccable.
