My 2016 Bucket List | 2nd Shooting My First Wedding

At the beginning of the year I made a 2016 Bucket List Post and one of the things on there was to 2nd shoot a wedding.  Now if you don’t know what that means, it’s basically being the backup shooter for the main wedding photographer.  My job was to photograph the Groom getting ready and basically the in between shots and anything I could catch.  I had the privilege to work with Kelly of Kelly Ewell Photography and she was so easy to work with.  Although I kept asking for direction, ( as you can imagine a first time second shooter would) she just said, “shoot how you normally would.”  That really gave me the freedom to see it from my perspective.

Never say never! I said that I would NEVER in a million years photograph a wedding! Well, I was wrong and now I can see how this can be incredibly addicting!

This couple had such a fun time celebrating with their friends and family.  I found myself several times actually tearing up while editing these photos.  I barely know these people but after being married for 15 years I still remember the butterflies and the special moments that I’ll never forget.

Congratulations to this sweet couple and a big THANK YOU to Kelly for allowing me to second shoot for her.  I certainly hope it won’t be the last.
