Today we are talking about some of the roles that a second shooter can expect to fill at a wedding. These roles can be customized to the main shooter’s needs and it’s always good to double check with the photographer first. I have learned that it’s best to ask the main shooter what they specifically are looking for in advance so that you can feel comfortable about what you’re doing. Not every photographer is going to want you to shoot every moment but they may not speak up or be too up front with you about it. The best thing you can do is ask them from the beginning, listen to what they want, and assist them whenever it’s needed! Hubbies, just like you would do anything for your wifey at home, that goes for wedding days, too! 🙂
1.ASSISTANCE. As a second shooter, it’s important to remember that you are there to serve your clients AND the photographer! By helping the photographer wherever needed, you are also helping your client by giving them the best possible experience. You are there to help make things go smoothly. For example, you might be asked to have your camera ready at all (or most) times BUT also asked to carry and set up equipment, set up the lighting, hold a reflector, run errands, hold an umbrella, call out names for family formals, get food and water, and the list goes on!
2.A SECOND PERSPECTIVE. It’s always a great idea to shoot from a difference angle and a different lens than what the main photographer is shooting with at the time. That gives a different perspective and a variety of photos to choose from for the wedding album. One example is while the main shooter is photographing the first look with a 50mm, watching the bride, you could be shooting with the 70-200mm watching the groom. Another example while shooting the ceremony: you could be standing in a different area on the opposite side of the venue using a different lens that compliments the main shooter.
3.TIME SAVER. While the main photographer is shooting one subject, you could be shooting something else simultaneously to save time. It’s always best to do this when the main shooter doesn’t need you at the time. For example, when the photographer is with the bridesmaids while getting ready and shooting details, the second shooter could be doing the same thing with the groomsmen.
4.BEHIND THE SCENES. Every photographer loves a good “behind the scenes” action shot. If you get the opportunity to take some fun and exciting shots of the main photographer in action, then go for it! They will appreciate it and you might even get a bonus shoutout on social media! 😉
I hope that helps you guys understand a little more about being a second shooter! Remember, everyone is different and may have other opinions about the roles that come into play, but these are the main points that I find helpful to know! Thanks for following along and learning alongside with us!
