This wedding season, I started something new. Second shooting with high end New England Area Photographers.
Although Dan and I shoot most weddings together, neither of us are pegged as the second shooter role. I hadn’t been his second shooter since the first wedding I shot 2 years ago.
Second shooting is great! Less work, and it’s great to know that I’m getting someone’s back, versus running the show and feeling the pressure all the time~ just kidding… slightly. =) There are definitely wonderful sides to second shooting, not to mention to work with these respected, well established photographers, and be inspired by their hard work, experience, and knowledge. Also, due to my recent surgery, second shooting was a great way to keep my self photographing without accruing additional editing work to my palette. Among the several photographers I got to work with, I had the pleasure of working with Brittany Blando, who’s also the founder of Beantown Brides a blog site dedicated to New England, Boston area weddings, and brides.
There was something definitely unique to covering the groom getting ready, I’m more used to capturing the bride. But sure enough, there were plenty details to capture.

They can pull off stern, silly, traditional, boy-band, men-in-black, james bond, GQ, and just keep going!One of the groomsmen let me take a shot of his independent fashion statement~ Kelly arriving at the church with her Dad. as the best man speech said, Kelly couldn’t be any more cute. again, heart melting… I lost it when they danced to Boyz-II-Men’s Mama… later in the receptionEach of the bridal party ladies had a unique shoe color to pull off, and the groomsmen pocket squares matched their shoe color. Love the details!
