Why I Love Second Shooting: Part II

A lot of couples prefer two photographers. The main photographer is referred to as the primary shooter. And the extra photographer is referred to as the second shooter.

While, some photographers work in teams, others hire second shooters as needed.

So sometimes, I am called upon to fill the second shooter shoes. Which is actually a lot of fun. While the primary shooter is expected to get all the important photos. The second shooter works under a lot less stress to come up with photos of unexpected moments and photos of expected moments from a different angle.

Here are a few favorites from a wedding at Kimball Hall I second shot with my photo friend Manuel Llaneras.

Second shooters are often tasked with taking detail shots, like this ring photo.

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
