Recently, I experienced my first opportunity to be a second shooter for a wedding held at the Benson Memorial United Methodist church with the reception at the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley Hotel. Congratulations to Caroline and Jeff ! You and your families and friends are a great bunch of people! Your wedding was a blast!
I would like to thank Brian Mullins from Brian Mullins Photography for my providing me this great opportunity. As I progress in my photography, one of my goals is to do some wedding work. Recently, I joined the wedding photographic society to network and share experiences with other wedding photographers in the Raleigh area. I was hopeful to work with and learn from experienced and well respected wedding photographers. One of the first steps of my plan is to work as a second shooter with these types of photographers. Well, besides being one of the founders of the wedding photographic society and his work is amazing, Brian definitely fits the bill. I really appreciated the direction, useful suggestions, and valuable information he provided all night long.
Check out Brian’s work and let him or me know what you think.
Here are some of my shots from my first wedding plunge.

Take care and see ya soon!!
