I think this highlights the bonus / need / importance whatever you want to call it - highlights (one) importance, (I feel) of a second shooter. You can't be in two places at once - let's face it.
When I photography a wedding, I love photographing details, and candid shots. I love standing back, being a fly on the wall and capturing true, honest, un-posed emotion. The more I do weddings, the more I LOVE them, the more I am finding my 'style'. Telling a bride I only have 30 minutes with her, because I have to rush to drive 20 minutes (or more) to the groom, spend 20 minutes with him, then rush to the cermony ... isn't my thing. I highly dis-like being rushed.
I worked for the first time with Rebecca McCabe during Crystal and Matthew's big day. A fan of her work, I enjoyed her style and thought she was an excellent choice. The day went great! I relaxed and took my time with the bride, Rebecca was able to capture the groom and his men - and it was an amazing day. We were able to get two views of the wedding cermony (which I think is FABULOUS!) and we worked well with formals - bouncing ideas off each other.
Here are some images of the rehearsal the day before, and some of Matthew and his best men up to the cermony.
