Bubolz Nature Preserve Wedding – Sam + Marina

Appleton, WI – June 1, 2019

This Wisconsin wedding is a little bit different than the posts you normally see from me.

Chances are, you wouldn’t have noticed, had I not said anything, but this wedding was my very first time second shooting on another photographer’s job!

A lot of wedding photographers get into the industry and build up their portfolio by working along other photographers.

Me?! I skipped that step and jumped right into my first solo wedding before I had any idea that this thing would turn into a full-time wedding photography career.

One of my friends (HEY ABBY!) recently told me I’d love second shooting because you get the chance to be in the background and just focus on your art.

So the next thing I knew, I had booked my first second shooting job at this awesome WI wedding venue! Do you want to know what I thought of it?

Well, she was right!

It was a nice break in the middle of a busy season to help me feel refreshed and rejuvenated. In addition, it helped remind me that I’m in the right place.

My couples are the greatest and Sam + Marina were nothing short of amazing either.

I’m 100% blessed that I was able to connect with these two and be a last minute addition to their day.
