I know I’ve referred to this in the past – but I really do enjoy second shooting at weddings. This post is not about my enjoying second shooting though, but rather, about how much I have enjoyed my second shooters during this past years weddings.
Starting in May, Kelly Easter came all the way from Indianapolis and was an incredible asset for two weddings in both Lambton and Middlesex counties for Daniel & Ashley’s and Roy & Jannette’s weddings. Kelly has an exuberant personality who is much more technically intelligent than I will probably ever be. She was fun to both share information with, and to learn from. To top it off, Kelly is extremely gifted in her post processing skills. Kelly is currently enjoying sleepless nights as she raises her 10 new show puppies back in Indiana as co-owner of A&O Rottweiler's.
John Heenzy then came along side for the wedding of Josh & Julie Anne, this was a special addition for the wedding photography package that was auctioned to raise money for the Kaeden Brown Foundation. John later joined in to help shoot Joshua & Kristine’s outdoor journalistic style wedding, followed by nicer weather with Steve and Amanda’s outdoor autumn wedding this past weekend. John did everything from climbing a silo, and shooting in the rain, to getting down on the docks to capture the moments. After the fall wedding season was completed John and I swapped family sittings as well, which many of you saw and commented on on facebook.
Right in the middle of Josh & Julie Anne’s wedding and Joshua & Kristine’s wedding was another outdoor event. Ross & Amanda tied the knot in a beautiful backyard celebration in which Wendy Smith second shot and went above and beyond by providing transportation entertainment as well! Wendy has second shot with me and visa versa in the past, and is continually challenging herself to improve on her skills both technically and with working a crowd. Wendy has also recently done some photography at the Deleware Speedway where her husband Steve races, taking on an even more diverse aspect of her photography!
