As a documentary photographer, not only do I have the fabulous job of, amongst other things, photographing weddings, but occasionally I also have the *luxury* of being a 2nd shooter for some other incredibly talented, local wedding photographers Brian Lee, Bob Libby, and Heaven McArthur of Green Chair Studio. Second shooting goes a little like this… Them: Hey Andrea, would you like to come shoot a wedding with me next month? I need you to spend the day taking pictures of the groom while I’m with the bride, get detail shots while I’m shooting formals, and otherwise take general rockstar candids throughout the night. And don’t worry about the edits, I’ll handle them. Me: Why yes, I would love to help you!
But more important than the fact I get to skip out of post-production, I truly enjoy the opportunity to work with such stellar photographers.
A few weeks back, Bob asked me to join him at Portland’s own World Trade Center for the wedding of Michelle + Neil. Despite MONTHS of rain, the evening was glorious, the bride was glowing, she and the groom were moved to tears on more than one occasion, and the dancing was downright fantastic.
Thanks so much to Bob for allowing me to be a part of the celebration and share a few of candids from their joyous beginning.
