A&P Got an offer to 2nd shoot a wedding

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Nov 19, 2009.

  1. Friend of mine does weddings, recommended a client to her -- and she said she wanted me to help...

    Never done this before, should I go for it? :dunno:

    the benefit of being a 2nd is that you take all the shots you want, don't have to worry about making sure you got something for the bride/groom, and then at the end of the night you give the RAW files to the primary and go home and forget about it:rofl:

    Do it. I shot my first as a second a couple weeks back and had a blast. I'm going to shoot my second this weekend with the same photographer. It's extra money and a great way to learn
