Favorites From A Second Shooter’s Point Of View 2016 Collection NC + Destination Wedding Photographer

2016 Favorite Images From Second Shooters by Christina Forbes Photography

I know I have said this a lot on many other blog posts or social media posts, but it’s so true….the 2016 wedding season was nothing short amazing. Between the most kindest and gorgeous couples, new venues and all the bells and whistles that comes along on the wedding day; my second shooters helped me in making this such a memorable year. When I sit down and reminisce, I can’t help but think about the amazing photographers that second shot for me this year. Not only did they help me create some beautiful memories for my couples, their families and friends to cherish; but they stood beside me.

Each and every one of the photographers represented Christina Forbes Photography in the most professional, classy and fun way! We laughed, cried, struggled and made some great memories too. I’ve joked with each of them before we shot together that there’s going to be absolutely something wild or crazy that’s going to happen when they shoot with me. And if you think I’m exaggerating just ask a few of them and they’ll tell you! There’s 2 memories that stick out…the first being the time that it was so hot my second shooter and I were basically in a race on who was going to pass out first because of the extreme heat (I might have lost…you can find out here). The second was Hurricane Matthew making a grand debut! Each of the second shooters were shooting with me for the first time. And here we were in the most insane weather which forced us to either rethink the wedding timeline & plans or struggle to even keep going. Neither of them complained and they literally helped to make the best of it. They most certainly made these weddings a little easier to manage.

One of my most cherished memories is that my best friend and photographer mentor Amy traveled with me to my destination wedding in Charleston, SC at the Magnolia Plantation to be my second shooter. What’s so special to me was the feeling of my career coming full circle. I remember the first wedding I ever attended in a photography manner was carrying Amy’s camera bags. After awhile I started second shooting for her. I remember being in awe of her when she shot. You guys she’s crazy talented! And she taught me so many things (even more about life & friendship). So when I booked that Destination Charleston Wedding I knew that having her beside me was the chance for me to show her that I valued everything she taught me, the support that she has given me and the tough love that she has shown me. I was making it…I had accomplished a big dream….and I wanted her to be apart of it. She captured that gorgeous header image on the blog post…it’s gorgeous isn’t it?

Thank You Hayley, Amy, Vera, Rachel and Kurt! You guys were so much fun and I had the best time at the weddings with you all. The love, support and amazing memories you all have given me are so special to me! When things were crazy you helped me stay focus, you were my extra set of hands (height assistant too LOL), timekeeper and my veil flippers. We had slumber parties, ate lots of yummy cake, maybe danced a little on dance floor and most certainly shared lots of laughs! Thanks for be so awesome!

I’m so excited to share with you a favorite image from each wedding that was captured by my second shooters. Enjoy!
