Second Shooter

I am so excited and honored that you are considering me as your Second Shooter! I know how important it is to choose a Second Shooter who is the right fit, so I’ll start off by telling you a little about myself:

I am a wanderluster at heart, a lover of all things dark chocolate, a sucker for furry animals, and a free spirit on horseback. I stay up way too late for having two children, but that’s when I work best and have the most thoughtful conversations. I’m also not a morning person…so I’m also a pretty big fan of coffee. I am a wife to Adam, a handsome and hard-working man who is an incredible husband and father to our two beautiful kiddos Danny and Kennedy, and our fur baby Zoe.

As a Second Shooter my focus is to serve YOU. I believe communication is KEY – I will check in with you frequently before and during the wedding day to make sure I meet your expectations. That being said, I also know when to give you space…when I say frequently I don’t mean so much that you feel like you’re coming down with Charlie Brown Syndrome. I ask that you provide me with some of your business cards so that I can be an ambassador for you and your business throughout the wedding day when someone inevitably asks for contact information. I will do everything I can to help the day go smoothly while we have fun together serving your clients.

I can hang with the guys (actually, for most of my life I had more guy friends than girl friends), I LOVE shooting the details, and when we’re together I focus on capturing alternative angles and candids – I will not be shooting over your shoulder! I’m not a huge fan of grip & grins (I don’t think I’ve met a photographer who is?!), but if that’s what you and your client wants, I will be your Cocktail Hour Paparazzi!
