Thanks for checking out my site!

 

Second shooting is one of my favorite parts of the wedding photography business. When you’re running a business out of your home, it can get difficult to make time to go meet with others in the industry, make friends, and learn from each other. Second shooting is a win-win, where I get to learn some new tricks, and probably teach some too! Plus, you can’t beat all the fun of the wedding without the pressure to edit 😉

 

 

I shot my first wedding back in 2014. A couple years later, I officially opened my business in 2016 and had the pleasure of working with eight couples in that first wedding season.

 

As a second shooter, I usually end up hanging out with the groom and shooting a lot of details and behind-the-scenes before the ceremony. I am totally comfortable shooting independently – just give me some direction as to your style preference and location for formal portraits.

 

My style is generally bright, true-to-color, and sometimes soft when lighting permits, though I do keep a fair amount of shadows present in my images. I much prefer natural light over flash, studio, or overhead lighting. But I do use a two flash system for receptions (one on, one off). I have shot for photographers of varying styles, including the popular light-and-airy style. I do my best to double check settings against yours and make sure I am adjusting to your shooting style.

 

I have found that the best way to make sure everyone leaves with all the images they need is for me to shoot with the lead photographer’s card in slot 1, and copy to one of my cards as a backup in slot 2. At the end of the night, I give the lead photographer her/his card(s) back, and I hang on to my copies just in case. I always follow the lead photographer’s instructions for how (or if) I can use the images from the wedding.

 

I am located in Summit Point, WV, and serve clients all over Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, many counties in West Virginia, and select areas of North Carolina seasonally. I do not mind traveling to second shoot!

 

Generally, the lead photographer if the one who offers compensation for the job, so I don’t have a set hourly rate. I tend to accept an average of $30/hour of coverage plus $0.50/mile for travel.
