Meet my assistants!

One of the main questions that I get a lot is “Do you use the same 2nd photographer?” And the answer is, yes! I have two main shooters, Brittni and Mary. These talented souls work alongside me and capture all the moments that I can’t. So, for example, when I’m with the bride before the ceremony, my second shooter is with the groom. While I’m focusing on the bride coming down the aisle, Brittni or Mary is capturing the expression on the groom’s face.

Meet Brittni!

Brittni is incredibly talented and loves to create! She is my main assistant and is with me for the majority of my weddings.

She is laid back, easy to work with and helps smooth the entire wedding day process. If you need help pinning boutonnieres, she’s your girl. Straightening ties and making sure all details are in order when we’re doing group shots – she’s on it. She’s also a baby charmer and does an amazing job at capturing images in a photojournalism inspired way. Not only is she my professional sidekick but she’s also my soul sister and so much fun. I’m so lucky to have her by my side and if she’s assisting me on your wedding day, I’m going to have to say that you’re pretty lucky too. She does an excellent job!

When Brittni isn’t doing photography she loves to travel! She’s been all over the world and is always planning her next adventure. She also loves running, singing and eating. (Amen!)

Meet Mary!

Mary is an amazing assistant and even helped capture Brittni’s wedding day with me. In fact, this first picture was taken at Brittni’s wedding.

I’m so happy that she did because she has such an eye when it comes to working with people. I love her style and how she’s always playing with her lighting. She’s also super laid back and so much fun! When she first met with Brittni and I, we were a little worried she wouldn’t get our “weird” or our unique dynamic but our worries were soon put to rest. Mary fit in with us perfectly and has proven to be an amazing assistant and asset to the wedding industry world.

When Mary isn’t being a boss with her cameras, she loves to hike! She also loves snuggling with dogs (Another amen!), enjoying craft beer, being outside and spending time with her family and friends.

Both of my assistants are held to very high standards and they never disappoint. It’s hard to find good second photographers in this industry and I have been blessed to find two. I have had the pleasure of working many weddings with both of these ladies and am looking forward to our future weddings together! We would love to work with you too so make sure to hit the contact page and check your date availability.
