Wedding photography has so many styles to offer brides and grooms.  There is the popular photojournalistic and candid style photography and artistic portrait style.  In between these styles is editorial style and lifestyle wedding photography.  One thing that perspective that is important to most of all these styles is the second photographer perspective.

A second photographer works with the primary photographer and captures a fresh candid perspective to wedding photography.  Similar to photojournalistic photography, the images are non-directed.  The photographer is always ready to the moment.  While the primary photographer is directing the wedding couple, the second photographer is capturing the couple’s reaction with the primary photographer.   I enjoy the look of these images because they capture some natural moments.

I have been training new photographers for the past 15 years.  These new photographers have gotten some great images from a second perspective.  I have always been jealous of second photographers.   I sometime would prefer to be a second shooter and capture some great images than to be the main photographer.  This is how great I believe these images are.  But I always come back to the point; the second perspective images are only as good and the primary photographer directing the wedding couple.
