Wowzers! It’s taken me a while to get to these images and I’m kicking myself for it. I absolutely ADORE this wedding. Back in August, my awesomely talented photog friend Kristi (of Kristi Odom Photography) approached me about being a second shooter for a West Virginia mountain wedding at the Confluence Resort—and possibly going white water rafting while we were at it. Of course I jumped at the chance and I’m glad I did because it was loads of fun.
I’ve blogged before about how second shooting is such a refreshing change of pace for a primary shooter. Time to switch it up, slow it down, and play. This chance proved to be no different. The only bad thing I can say about second shooting is that when you’re in the thick of “wedding season” yourself, it’s tough to bother with going back and finishing the images you shot. After all, they were shot under contract for the other photographer. That photographer is going to finish them up in their style, with their branding, etc. so there’s no real reason to go back and do them yourself except for personal growth (and the love of wedding photography).
Thankfully, Kristi is awesome and lets me share what I saw of the wedding with you all. I had the hardest time narrowing down the photos to just a few before I got the brilliant idea to just share the “album spreads”. Like I said in my recent “Ode To Albums” post, storytelling in albums is my favorite thing about weddings. So here it goes! Check it out:
And last but not least, I mentioned before that Kristi enticed me to second with the promise of some white water rafting in wild & wonderful West Virginia. Well, we conquered the New River Gorge! Here’s a silly pic from Kristi’s GoPro, strapped to her paddle.
