In April, I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Something Blue Journal in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on a styled shoot to be featured in their latest issue! It was my first styled shoot, and I got to work with some of the best vendors in Oklahoma. I’ve had my eye on Dresser Mansion for a while, so I knew almost immediately it was the perfect location for a summer European elopement theme. What sounds more magical than that??
Seattle. Colorado. Ohio. North Carolina. Just a few of the places guests traveled from for Erin + Matty's backyard wedding in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The more I talked to guests, the more I realized how precious these two people are. So many of their friends and family were willing to travel so far just to see them get married, and it was easy to understand why.
For my first year of shooting weddings, I primarily worked for other photographers as a second shooter. It was the most amazing way to gain wedding experience, become confident with wedding photography, and learn from some of the best in the business, long before I ever shot a wedding on my own. I recommend this route to anyone looking to get into wedding photography! But, all that being said, there are a lot of ways to hardcore SUCK at being a second shooter. Let’s not do that, okay? So today I wanted to share 6 easy, but crazy effective ways to become the most bomb second shooter ever! Let’s go!
Forever and always a fan of these two. This was my second time to photograph Olivia + Rob. They had booked a couples session with me last fall, and after getting engaged earlier this year, we excitedly began planning their engagement session. They knew for sure they wanted something different, something adventurous, something dramatic.
Friends. I have been waiting SO long to share photos from my own wedding with you and tell you the whole story, and TODAY IS THE DAY ARE YOU READY LET’S DO THIS.
Brittney + Michael dreamed up the perfect session in the mountains, but during a mild week in February, they definitely weren’t planning for the temperature to suddenly drop to 45 degrees and the rain to roll in! Instead of being scared off, they totally embraced it and we went ahead and shot in the mist and cold and fog.
