So yesterday I posted the first wedding that I shot without Cameron. A few weeks ago I shot a wedding with James Carson from Carson Photography. Shooting with another photographer besides Cameron was definitely a new experience for me. We serve as anchors for one another not only in life but in our business and art too. Don’t get me wrong Carson is a great photographer and a cool, laid-back kinda guy – but he wasn’t my Cam. (Everyone cue in — AWWWWWW).
There are no words that can sum up my experience shooting without my other-half. But, it just felt so different to shoot with another person – and I think I was constantly worried if I was capturing the images that Carson needed. Cameron usually serves as the lead photographer but I never worried about my shots because when we work together I instinctively know what he is capturing so I know that I do not need to capture that particular shot. But as time carried on throughout the day, I began to feel much more comfortable once again pulling cues off of Carson – if he was in a particular area – I should be somewhere else – etc, etc….
When I look back and think about it – I am definitely lucky to have my other half’s support in all of this. It is definitely a blessing to work with my best friend and create beautiful art together.
Here’s my Cameron during one of our excursions inside Death Valley’s sand dunes.
