If you follow us on social media, you probably already know that Matt Mead Photography is made up of me and my wife, Teri. In this post, I’d like to introduce you to our second photographer — Ms. Kayla Amendola. For me, having a second photographer at your wedding isn’t just a luxury; it’s an essential part of the day. This is especially true when you have a second photographer as talented as Kayla. Let me explain why:
Similar Style, Two Perspectives
One of the reasons Kayla and I work so well together is that we share a similar photography style. Even though our styles are very similar, her eye is unique to her. A different view of your day is always a beautiful thing.
The Devil’s in the Details
As experienced Erie PA wedding photographers, we know a lot of work and care go into planning the day and all the details deserve their time in front of the camera. Kayla is awesome at capturing all the details of your day. From your wedding bands to centerpieces to cake toppers, she makes sure no detail is missed.
We usually do our couple’s portraits during the cocktail hour of the reception. While I’m with you and your beloved, Kayla gets candid photographs of your guests mingling while they enjoy a drink and some hors d’oeuvres. You can relax during your couple’s portraits knowing that while you weren’t physically there, you’ll have memories of your family and friends having a great time. Knowing this, as you can see, frees us up to create moments like these.
Two Cameras Are Better Than One
The wedding day can be crazy and hectic. There is a lot going on. More often than not, it’s all happening at the same time. When there are two photographers, we help keep the day on schedule and running smoothly. This starts while you’re getting ready. I photograph the lads (a.k.a. – keeping them out of trouble), while Kayla hangs out with our brides and bridesmaids as they’re getting ready. Here she’s able to capture the anticipation and excitement in the moments leading up to the ceremony.
This Second Photographer’s Got My Back…and Yours
Let’s face it; stuff happens. Cars break down, camera gear breaks down, the priest steps in front of me during your first kiss… Whatever the stuff may be, I know that if something unexpected happened to me or my gear, Kayla is able to step in like a rockstar and make sure there are no missed moments on your day.
