Shooting Costa Rica Weddings from Another Perspective
A few weeks ago my photographer friend Madison Baltodano asked me if I could be the second photographer at a wedding in Zephyr Palace. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to second shoot one of her Costa Rica weddings.
Most primary photographers try to work as second photographers whenever they get a chance. The primary photographer is there to capture the many parts of the wedding and not miss a shot no matter what the circumstances.
The second photographer, in contrast, is there to photograph guests and candid moments during the day. This is a nice change as it gives me the chance to be more creative as I need to constantly search for photo opportunities.
Dana and Mike were a great couple with really awesome friends and family there to help them celebrate the big day. There was a lot going on and everyone was in a good mood, so I just needed to keep my eyes open and capture the special moments going on all around me.
It’s fun to step out of the role of primary photographer at Costa Rica weddings on occasion. If you’d like to check out some of my work as the primary at Zephyr Palace, feel free to check out this post!
