FAQ: DO YOU SHOOT MORE THAN ONE EVENT PER DAY?
This FAQ is one that I’ve gotten a few times because I believe it’s probably one of those questions in some internet article somewhere about “things to ask your photographer.” I’m not speaking for all photographers but in my business, no, I do not shoot more than one event per day. For weddings, my packages are for full day coverage so I can only schedule one wedding per day! I am scheduled with my couples for 8 to 10 hours so my whole day is dedicated to one couple! No way I could squeeze in another event!
Back in the day I would sometimes schedule two sessions per day, but now, I stick to one per day for sanity sake! I also shoot my sessions the two hours before sunset so I couldn’t schedule two shoots at the same time! I also choose to shoot one session per day in case I need to make an adjustment with timing around weather or something! For instance, I had a couple in town for their engagement session back in December and we had to move our session up because of inclement weather. If I was double booked I wouldn’t have been able to fit everyone in! I would probably have to reschedule someone from that day and I know we all run on tight schedules so I try respect my clients time and mine! Sometimes when people are coming in from out of town, it gets trickier and we have lots of variables for rescheduling!
I like focusing on one event per day so that I’m giving my best self to my clients and not thinking about something else I have later in the day or worrying about timing. It’s not to say that I would NEVER shoot two sessions per day, but if I can help it, one per day it is!
