This blog post is apart of my BLOG-FEBRUARY Project, where I write a blog post for everyday in February.
This lovely wedding took place at one of my favourite London Venues, the Royal Society of the Arts (the RSA). It’s a stunning building, with rooms available on several different floors. I’ve photographed there several times now, and I’ve always really enjoyed it.
One of the things I find really interesting about UK Wedding Photographers is that we’re all very friendly with each other. It could be a very competitive industry, yet we’re all there helping each other out. My friend Fiona was the primary photographer for this wedding at the RSA, and when her normal 2nd shooter had to cancel on her last minute, she asked around hoping to find someone available. Luckily, since it was a Sunday, I had the day open, so I popped in to help fiona photograph this wedding.
Second shooting (where you’re not the primary photographer, but assassinating and photographing along side them) is always an incredibly interesting job. It allows you to photograph a wedding without having the normal responsibility of organisation and planning. It also free’s you from some of the more difficult jobs such as family formal pictures. You’re allowed to try some different angles and try new things. It’s also incredibly interesting to see how other photographers work and manage a wedding.
Thanks Fiona for having me! I’m so glad I was able to pop in and help!
Here are some my favourite shots from 2nd shooting from Fiona:
