"Do we need two lawyers to do a prenup or will one do?"

You really need two lawyers. A lawyer can only represent one of you; to represent both spouses (or potential spouses) is a conflict of interest. Your interests are not the same as those of your future spouse. Generally, one person hires a lawyer to draft the pre-nuptial agreement and the other person hires a lawyer to review and negotiate the terms. It is highly advisable for both parties to be represented by counsel.
