Thanks so much for stopping by. Before you get any further, I wanted to give a little background to this blog o’ mine. Here’s the deal - I consider myself a storyteller. To me, photography is the art of documenting people’s lives, the big moments and the little details!!!
Pretty images are GREAT and all, but sometimes you want more than just a glimpse. That’s what these digital pages are for!! So if you’re the type that’s looking for the full scoop, read on my friend. Who knows… maybe your story will end up here next!!!
The Importance of Second Shooters
I bet some of you may be wondering why I always show up with a second photographer on wedding days. It’s included with all my packages, because I believe it holds THAT much value for my clients!!! Today I wanted to spill the tea on why that is! Read on for why I believe a second photographer is SO IMPORTANT on a wedding day, and what you can expect from yours!!!
…But you’ll want multiple angles captured at once. Take your ceremony for example, when your dad is walking you down the aisle. I’ll be up at the front capturing your faces as you walk, as well as your partner’s sweet reaction. But if I’m up front, who will hang behind to grab the epic shot of your guests standing and smiling at your entrance, and document how bomb the back of your dress looks?? The second photographer of course!!
2. YOUR PARTNER DESERVES TO BE FUSSED OVER, TOO
To be honest, the bride is always my priority on a wedding day. I spend the morning with her and her bridesmaids as they get ready, and I take more time capturing all her details, from her earrings to her shoes. BUT your partner is just as important (weddings are about two people, after all!) He deserves attention too, and this is an excellent job for your second photographer! They will spend the beginning of the day with him and his groomsmen as they hang out. They’ll be there as his mom pins his boutonniere, and as his best man straightens his tie. These are photos you’re sure to cherish!
3. CANDID PHOTOS ARE THE BEST!
Your primary photographer is responsible to get those must-have shots (you two during your first dance, for example.) While I make sure to capture every dip and twirl, your trusty second photographer (you’re really starting to love this imaginary person, right??) will be tiptoeing around the room, grabbing photos of your guests’ reactions. And trust me, that adorable shot of your mom beaming at you two dancing the night away will be JUST AS LOVELY for the wedding album!
As a wedding photographer, of course I prioritize photography (and I know that my ideal clients do, too!) I hope that after reading this you’ll agree that a second photographer is so important, and you’ll know what to expect from them on your wedding day!
