Panama City Beach Wedding | Adventures in Second Shooting

Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifeime event. No matter what, there is no way to go back in time and reshoot this special day. Wedding photographers often employ the services of Second Shooters. Second Shooters, as the title implies are photographers who assist the Lead Photographer and help ensure that no special moments or gorgeous details are missed.  I have worked with Anna Kinchen several times as a Second and it's been a real joy each time. Anna is warm and friendly with an infectious laugh and eyes that sparkle when she smiles. She lights up every room she enters and has the talent to calm and reassure even the most camera shy subjects. Not only is she one of the most likable people you'd ever want to meet, she is a master of her craft. Every time I have the opportunity to work with her, I walk away learning more about photography.  I was so honored when she asked me to step in and assist her with her brother's wedding!  Talk about trust!

As a Second Shooter, all of the images I shoot belong to Anna but she was gracious enough to allow me permission to share some of my favorite shots here on the blog.  The wedding was absolutely perfect. The weather was gorgeous, the wedding party was beautiful and best of all, the bride was completely relaxed and focused on enjoying her special day.  Below are a few of my favorite images from the day.
