Being a wedding photographer is honor as well as a huge responsibility. There is no better experience to prepare a photographer to shoot weddings than second shooting as an assistant. However, when the opportunity arises, it's best to know in advance what's expected.
This 20-page PDF covers a wide array of topics ranging from a shot list for second shooters, Do's + Don'ts of second shooting, a list of questions to ask a first shooter before the wedding, tips to prepare for a wedding, and much more.
Carefully curated by JD, my second shooter (and husband!), this document details what it takes to be the type of second shooter who can diversify a wedding portfolio and be a professional representation, which results in booking more jobs and creating strong industry alliances.
