Sometimes, just sometimes, I get the privilege to shoot a client's wedding completely on my own. What an honor, right?! This person entrusts me to capture everything that happens on that once in a lifetime day. Some people don't opt to have a "second shooter" there because of their budget or because they feel it isn't necessary.
And some people do.
In my career, I've second shot a lot. And now that I'm getting to a point where I'm booking more clients on my own, it's particularly awesome being the "other" photographer. It's all the fun and involvement with none of the responsibility. (Okay, not none. But, not as much)
I've had the opportunity to work with some really talented people, to see how they work, follow them around, bug them throughout the day and contribute to their creative process. It doesn't really get a whole lot cooler than that.
Special thanks to both of these guys for inviting me to shoot and learn!
