Today I want to talk about something that changed the way I shoot weddings: a styling board. When I first realized I could bring my own props to weddings to make styling details a cinch, it blew my MIND. Why wasn’t I doing this sooner?! I now travel with envelopes, stamps, Mrs. Boxes and ribbon to every wedding I shoot. But what makes it all come together is a Styling Board.

I have heaps of couples ask me, “What is a second shooter and do I need one?” The answer is like a 2007 Facebook relationship status “It’s complicated”. A second shooter is another professional photographer hired by your photographer to help capture your big day. Usually, this second photographer is optional and not the same shooter every time. Many times, second shooters are photographers who own their own businesses and have a bunch of their own weddings to shoot as well. So the question remains: do I need a second shooter?
