Cutting shingles at the valley vs. overlapping

A guy is roofing my house, and I didn't realize until someone pointed it out to me today that he is cutting the valleys vs. overlapping them. The guy who pointed it out said it may not cause me problems for a while, but most people overlap, especially the architectural or dimensional shingles? See pictures and give thoughts? Should I get them overlapped before he goes any further? I live in the SE, if that matters.

There is nothing wrong with the way he is doing it.

I see one thing wrong. He is putting a 2nd layer on. I really do not like that but that is just me.
