education

I’ll be focusing on how to become an ideal second shooter. Everything from what to wear, how to photograph the groom + groomsmen on your own, how to interact with wedding day vendors, on camera lighting techniques, how to add value as a second shooter and more.

If you’ve been wanting to get your toes wet in the wedding industry, if you have your own photography gear and a passion to learn, or even if you're just looking to make some extra money on the weekends, second shooting should be right up your alley. 

I am personally so thankful to the wedding photographers who allowed me to second shoot with them when I was still a newbie.  But looking back, though, I was a HORRIBLE second shooter!!

This workshop is designed to give you an in-depth look at what you should know about second shooting.  I want to arm new photographers with the knowledge and tools to become a reliable and sought-after second shooter!  Second shooting is a VERY important job and a great way to start laying the foundation for your own business.  I'm here to share everything I know about what wedding photographers want + expect from their second shooters.


I firmly believe that every wedding photographer should develop a strong foundation by second shooting at the beginning of their photography journey.  There is no better way to gain on-the-job experience in the industry!

While second shooter opportunities with me are not guaranteed, you will be armed with the skills and knowledge required to be a valuable second shooter should the opportunity arise in the future! I am always looking for reliable second shooters to add to my team!

DOES THIS MEAN THAT AFTER THIS WORKSHOP, I’LL BE ABLE TO SHOOT WITH YOU?
