I am doing a lot of second shooting for other Charleston wedding photographers this month. Assistant shooting is a lot of fun.

You’re there to do whatever the main photographer needs you to do, and generally that means you get the honor of being a second pair of eyes; to be able to capture little vignettes going on behind the scenes while the big moments occur.

I am headed out to Daufuskie Island this weekend to assist for McBee Photography, and while I was cleaning out files this morning I found this series from a wedding I shot with her a few months ago at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on King Street. I can literally count on one hand the number of times I’ve been to a Catholic wedding, so I was like a kid in a candy store.

Several of my couples this year have opted for a second photographer in their wedding package as well, and I’m excited to collaborate with other area photographers. ┬áIt’s a really great way get more coverage for your wedding day at a very reasonable rate.

I laughed when I got this. It was the first image I took when I walked in the door of the church. I actually don’t know how to make a tiny infant wave to the camera on command, but how awesome would that be?

Here comes the bride!
