Meagan | Portrait Session

Photographing a wedding can be a lot of work (and a whole lot of fun!) and by the end of summer (busy season) I am usually in need of a serious massage. All weddings I have an assistant/second shooter who works alongside me. There are several reasons I photograph weddings this way. 
1. Lugging around my camera gear can be a lot of work during a wedding and often my assistant will graciously look after my gear for me.
2. Different perspectives and angles. I shoot with two cameras on me at weddings but with a second photographer we get even more angles to the day! They can use different lenses which create different perspectives. They can also be situated at a different spot. 
3. When photographing the getting ready portion of the day my assistant always goes with the groom/groomsmen and I photograph the bride/bridesmaids. 
4. Reassurance that all important moments are captured. 
5. Creative minds get to collaborate. 

With that being said, I was super lucky to have worked with several second shooters/ assistants this past wedding season. Thank you SO much Meagan, Liz and Jillian for stepping in to be my super awesome side kicks. I finally had the opportunity to photograph one of my assistants a few days ago. Meet Meagan.
