Last week I met with a prospective client for her wedding next year. We had the chance to speak about the details of her day and she asked about the importance of having a second shooter at the wedding. It was a great way to explain the role JD plays and his unique perspective on the wedding day. When I started explaining the beauty of the First Look (when the bride and groom opt to see each other before the ceremony), I showed a few pictures describing how each moment is special to each couple.

In light of this, I thought I’d share the photos with blog readers as well. I usually show my perspective of the First Look (as the lead photographer, I usually take the strongest angle), but here are wedding stories from one moment, two perspectives…

My photo is on the left and JD’s photo is on the right…

JD captured this photo of Sonya seeing Eric for the first time on their wedding day…

…and I captured Eric’s tearful moment of seeing his bride.

JD captured Gladys about to surprise Chris for the First Look…

…and I captured Chris’ excitement as he nervously waited for his wife-to-be…

…and I captured the moment of their embrace…

Here Joel is blown away at the sight of his bride…

…and JD captured Jami’s reaction to Joel.

The lovely Damaris waited for Donald to arrive…

…and when he did, JD captured this moment…

…while I captured the first time Donald fully takes in the sight of his beautiful bride.

If you’re a bride considering a First Look, ensuring a second shooter is at the wedding guarantees two perspectives of a beautiful moment. It happens once in a lifetime, so make sure both reactions are documented for posterity’s sake.

If you’re a photographer and like to learn more about shooting with a first or a second shooter, JD and I will be hosting a FREE online photography course, The Art of Second Shooting starting TOMORROW at 9am PST. We’d love to see you there, so tune in and we’ll chat soon!
