You could probably hire an actual second shooter (someone who shoots weddings as a second for a living/part time income) AND has all the right kit already in their bag for less dough than you'll be spending on renting enough kit for yourself and your partner.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

If you will be shooting in tandem, I recommend going longer like a 70-200, while you shoot with a standard prime or zoom like the 24-70. To avoid getting each other in your shots, your second will need a bit more reach. If you are shooting fairly disconnected at all times that it's crucial your second has the same range of equipment you do. Some wide angle, some reach, some primes and of course backup.
