I went along as a second shooter yesterday and headed to Larkbeare House in Exeter, Devon. It’s surprising how many weddings I’m attending in Exeter 🌞
I enjoy being a second shooter because I can be more creative as I’m not giving all my attention to the Bride and Groom (That’s what the 1st photographer is doing).
I am always happy to approach people at the wedding and ask if they would like their photo taken. The vast majority will and I love also taking this type of photo.
People do open up and trust me immediately. That makes this job SO much easier!
If you want to know the kind of photos you’ll receive when I second shoot, look no further. Notice how none of my candids looks ‘staged’. It is all about the way you approach people, connect with them and make them relax into the photo.
It also helps that my cameras are silent so no-one can hear me coming for those totally candid shots…
