I LOVE second shooting, especially with photographers whom share the same outlook on the final product as I. It’s actually kind of relaxing to sit back and shoot all of the small details or even being on the side capturing the most amazing moments.
I cannot tell you how important it is to have an extra set of eyes and another creative thinker to help create the most gorgeous images for brides + grooms. A second shooter is there to be in places the main shooter cannot be. I chose to photograph with photographers who inspire me and also share similar creative styles as I do.
January I had the best time photographing with Mishelle Lamarand and Meg Darket.
Mishelle is a wonderfully talented photographer I met about a year ago. After our fluke meeting (ha!), I had been searching for the right person to photograph my family. You can’t just choose any photographer, we all have a different styles and I was in search for just the right person. And guess what, I FOUND HER! Mishelle photographed my portfolio photos as well as my family photos last fall. In fact, we have become such great friends I was honored to second shoot for her this winter. This was an absolutely stunning wedding. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left, I was in awe over the absolutely gorgeousness of the bride + groom.
Meg is also another beautifully talented photographer I met within this past year. In her attempt to find a second shooter I was incredibly honored to be there with her capturing a gorgeous couple on their wedding day! It just so happened that in the midst of our mild winter, the day of their wedding was absolutely GORGEOUS with the sun beaming down but also happened to be the coldest day of the year! Well let me tell you, that doesn’t stop photographers. We would go outside for a few shots then come back into the church to warm back up.
It has been such a pleasure to be apart of two gorgeous winter weddings and look forward to working with Mishelle and Meg again in the near future.
Here are some photos I took from a second shooters perspective.
