This is a first for BRC, but one of the things that I have dreamed of doing through this creative business. Shooting alongside another photographer, aka second shooting. But this time was a bit different, and a bigger adventure!
I love working alongside my clients in working off their energy and personalities, so naturally, being able to do this with a fellow professional colleague is so wonderful! When Meghan of the amazing Mae.Small photography asked me to come alongside her for Clarissa + Aaron’s big day, I was super excited. Miss Mae had (ten days before to be exact!) just given birth to her third little one, and first baby girl! Clarissa was so in love with Mae’s style that she asked her to please shoot her wedding. That’s when she asked for a little back up, and I couldn’t have been happier. Creating alongside Mae was beyond a fun and enjoyable experience. I love how much energy this girl had, EVEN AFTER labor. Wow! If she isn’t your hero now, I don’t know who would be, as Mae is very much my hero. She handed over the mantle after the ceremony and I got to document C + A’s rustic feel for a fun reception. We even got to sneak away for a little bit for some more bridal portrait shots in a beautiful little chapel that was on the grounds.
All photos were edited and selected by Miss Mae, with my photos sprinkled in the mix. I wonder if you can tell which are which? I can’t! We worked well in tandem, and I love this lady’s style and vision. I can’t wait to mutually work on future weddings with each other again and hopefully some collaborative shoots.
Congratulations Clarissa and Aaron! Thanks for being so flexible with the two of us and trusting both of our creative visions for your day. It was perfect.
