I recently photographed Kasi and Griffin’s wedding in the beautiful hill country of Texas. As a San Antonio wedding photographer I have the chance to not only photograph weddings, bridal portraits, and engagement portraits in San Antonio, but also all over Texas and the rest of the country, include the Austin Hill Country area. I really like to work at the various venues in the Hill Country because they have that beautiful pastural look to them. Kasi and Griffin were married and had their wedding reception at the Stonehhouse Villa in Driftwood, Texas, about 25 miles Southwest of Austin. At this wedding I was actually a second photographer and I had the chance to work with my friend Stephanie Brown, a great wedding photographer in Dallas. I do not often have the chance to be a second photographer at a wedding, but when I do I really enjoy it because I can indulge my fine art wedding photographer style more.
Kasi and Griffin are a great couple to work with. They were so laid back and genuine and that is always nice to see in a bride and groom. I had not met them prior to the wedding so it was a pleasant surprise when I showed up and they were warm and accommodating. I think that they chose the perfect venue for their wedding. They were just as tranquil as the rolling hills of the country side. People may be wondering what is the difference between being the primary photographer or the secondary photographer at a wedding. It really depends on the two photographers and how they have set things up. With my own business, Red Photo, I am the primary photographer all of the time. This means that I will stay with the bride most of day, especially while she is getting ready. The second photographer is normally assigned to photograph the groom and his groomsmen as they are getting ready. So at this wedding I was hanging out with the guys. On the rare occasion that I work a wedding by myself I have to photograph both the bride and the groom getting ready. This is hard because they are usually separated and I end up running back and forth between the two.
I always offers a second photographer to all of my wedding clients and I strongly recommend that they let me use one. Unlike other wedding photographers out there I always use a very highly skilled second photographer and someone who has a style that matches mine well. I produce high quality wedding albums for most of my clients so it is important to me that the images from both photographers match well.
