I am quite new to the videography game, but as each year goes by I am doubling my workload, which I am really pleased about - but what I am not pleased about is the high frequency of enquiries from people who "love [my] work and would love [me] to film their wedding" but low and behold, the date is already booked up!
I have one cameraman who attends all weddings with me - and he keeps telling me that he could handle these double-bookings by shooting the second wedding for me. I could also hire an additional cameraman for that day to accompany him, while I shoot the other wedding solo.
But I am terrified of trusting anyone else to film an entire wedding by themselves. If something goes wrong, it's my reputation.
How do other members here handle double-bookings? It's a lot of money to turn away...
