Associate Shooting

January 1, 2019

There are so many details of your wedding day that your photographer tries to catch. What I find most essential is having a second photographer or assistant. They are the lead photographer's best friend. There's so much to see, so much to photograph its so great to have someone by your side. I have second shot over 10 weddings so far and its really made me refine my eye and style. Each person that I've assisted has a different vibe which is as unique as the couples they serve.

I've spent my time with goofy groomsmen and beautiful bridesmaids as well as bearing witness to ceremonies by the beach, mansions, and family backyard homes. It made me truly grateful and am so thankful for the great couples I've met all thanks to leads who relied on me when they needed those shots. Each day ebbs and flows and with someone by your side makes everything less stressful. Enjoy some of my experiences second shooting.
