It’s so much fun when I’m able to meet, and work alongside, other photographers as a second shooter! I don’t have a lot of time to invest in this type of work, but when I do, it never disappoints! Working with Suzanna Jakes photography was a blast, and Jenn and John’s Hotel Monaco Wedding in the heart of Washington DC was absolutely GORGEOUS! John is from Dublin, Ireland and spending time with his fellas before the ceremony was seriously so much fun. We may or may not have fought with his bow tie for about 2 hours and watched 3 YouTube videos (one of which referred to the process as “magic” which it definitely was NOT) before we found a hotel staff member willing to tie it for him. Ummm, yeah. It’s called a clip-on, people! lol! Between that and the guys’ accents and stories they made up, it was a hoot! Whoever thought that weddings were all stuffy and stressful were wrong. It is the BEST.
As a second shooter, my role changes a bit, and I don’t always stay at the wedding for the entire time, so this set of images is from the time I was there! Sending out a huge THANK YOU to Suzanna for bringing me along! Enjoy!
