Second shooting is a great way to experience what a wedding day is like prior to taking the leap and role as a primary photographer. It provides the opportunity to troubleshoot on wedding days and see what the most common pain points are for brides, grooms, and primary photographers. Ultimately, this will make you an even stronger primary when you decide that you want to take on that role.
But before you put your name into the ring for potential second shooting jobs, please be sure you are well-prepared to serve the primary photographer and their clients! These are the some of the basic requirements I want all of my second shooters to have:
Some of my favorite images have come from second shooting. Second shooting pushes my creative limits because I am not in the “routine” of getting all the must have shots. Instead, I have the freedom to try and capture something that the primary photographer can’t…which allows great results for both of us!
The biggest piece of advice I can give you about second shooting for any photographer is communicate. You are there to serve him/her and his/her client. So keep that in mind as you navigate throughout a wedding day!
