I was fortunate enough to second shoot for Chad Salvador for Alex and Rosa’s wedding. I really enjoy second shooting, as it allows me to get a different perspective on how other photographers work and re-energize my creativity. Chad is also incredibly fun, so it makes the whole experience for the bride, groom, and wedding party even more enjoyable.
As a second shooter, I also really like working directly with the groom and groomsmen. Often, so much of the day is focused on the bride, but it’s the groom’s wedding too! I like making the groom and his group feel special. While the “getting ready” moments aren’t as glamorous, they allow the groom to connect with his groomsmen and prepare for the day.
I also like to get photos of each individual groomsman- they’ve invested a lot in the day as well and I think it’s nice to capture them dressed up.
