In June, I had the good fortune of photographing as second photographer to three fabulous photographers. I mentioned them in my June 2018 in Review post a little while ago. These gigs yielded me my very first triple header wedding weekend ever. I must say - it was quite the rush to go from one wedding to another.
Something Blue Photography - The Villa at Ridder Country Club
Working with Something Blue Photography afforded me not only the opportunity to photograph at one of my favorite locations, The Villa at Ridder Country Club in East Bridgewater, but also to photograph an event in one of their grand ballrooms a feat that had eluded me so far. I also got to work with a creative team that's based out of state. Elle Audrey New York were the planners extraordinare who planned and executed a flawless event that involved a slew of vendors from various locations.
Conte Sound Productions with Kristen Conte Weddings - The Waterman Grille, Providence RI
The next day, I worked with Kristen Conte of Conte Sound Productions. I've work with Kristen and her husband Tom before, so I knew I was in a for a great night. From capturing getting ready shots in Providence RI, to documenting the wedding ceremony and parts of the reception at the Waterman Grille on the east side of Providence, I spent most of my evening laughing with one of the most talented wedding creative duos I know.
Side Note -
The Waterman Grille served mini-sliders. These burgers are the best burger bites on the face of the planet! One fell on the ground and was smashed. I cried real tears over that poor crushed mini burger!
John Branch IV Photography - Blithewold Mansion, Bristol RI
I capped off working alongside the masterful John Branch IV out of North Carolina. Previously based in NYC, John moved his family and his business to North Carolina earlier this year. Sending out a call for a second photographer, I eagerly raised my hand to work alongside yet another photography professional from out of state. Thanks to DJ Dakey Christmas for the behind scenes snapshot of John and I making pictures of the couple and the iconic arch at Blithewold.
I have another set of second photographer gigs in the coming months and I'm looking forward to all of them. To all my prospective brides and grooms - note that when you request a second photographer at your wedding, you are working with folks who love their craft and the community. You're getting two professionals giving you various looks of your day AND who are having fun doing it!
