On being a second shooter ~ Steele Hill Resorts

I am very selective when it comes to shooting weddings.
Weddings are a lot of work. A lot.
From the meetings before hand, to making sure you are totally prepared with lists, gear and sanity, to the actual day itself filled with time limits and possible stress, to the hours of editing afterwards.

It is just a lot.
I am a total type A personality when it comes to my business.
I will never shoot without a second shooter because I just think that a day as important as your wedding day, needs to have more than one.

I have only second shot a wedding one other time, but when my friend Anna, from Anna Bartell Photography, asked me to second shoot with her I was happy to do it.

Second shooting is nothing like first shooting.
My job in being at the wedding Anna was hired for was simply to help her out in any way I could.
I would be a second set of eyes, and fill in spaces she couldn't be.
So much less stressful, that's for sure. And way less pressure!

I have to admit, it was hard for me to not butt in and get all up in everyone's grill and just take charge.
That is how I roll when I shoot, so it was definitely a challenge for me to reel it in, and just chill.

Steel Hill Resorts is an absolutely gorgeous location to have a wedding. The mountains were a perfect backdrop for the ceremony and the day was sunny and just beautiful!

Here are some of the highlights of the day from the second shooter's perspective.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
