      Thanks, Morgan. Even after photographing weddings for several years, I find that I learn something new with each wedding – and learned a LOT shooting as a second and from the ‘other side’ of things. Good luck with your future weddings!ReplyCancel

    Love this post Casey!!! I’ve 2nd shot a good number of times but when it’s my own weddings I very rarely have a 2nd… maybe something I need to add… at the very least add an assistant that can also shot if needed :)!! Thanks for sharing this!!!ReplyCancel

      Thanks, Kendra! You should try shooting with a second – it will change your life! I didn’t shoot with seconds when I first started out and now I can’t imagine otherwise. It alleviates so much… everything, really. If not even as a shooter, you can always bring on an intern, etc., to move gear, gather family members for formals, communicate and set things up for you, etc. It’s a great learning experience for those starting out and you’re time will be made SO.MUCH.EASIER.ReplyCancel
