You might think that every photographer out there always only photographs weddings for their own business or in relation to their own business. Some do but there are also those, like myself, that enjoy second shooting with and for other photographers when time and schedule permits. I love having that chance to work with other photographers- both as a second or with a second photographer. As a second you have the time to be really creative and not constrained by the need for all of your photos to work or count. You are not the main photographer, you don’t have the same time limitations and need to keep the day on track, you can take a breath while the main photographer does their magic. You can take a step back and truly SEE the main photographers setup. You figure out what you can do to bring a different angle, creativity, or look to what they are producing and you make something UNIQUE and CREATIVE by seeing things they might not have time to notice and by having the freedom to take chances.
This is one of those chances where I had the pleasure of second shooting for another photographer. I love any chance I get to work with Tara of Tara Engle Photography. We shared a studio for a time and her drive and passion is always something to be inspired by. She is creative, upbeat, and I have literally seen her sprint to get into position to capture a moment! So, with all that said, I love to work with her. She appreciates creative takes on portraits as well as details which truly gives me the freedom to look for those unique, fun, quirky photos that I love.
All the photos in this post were taken by myself while performing as a second photographer for Tara Engle Photography. Please enjoy. ♥
