The Main Shooter’s Role at the Recessional

  • Ask Anything

When we’re shooting a wedding day, Michael and I know our roles. After years and years of shooting together, we’ve learned that there are just some moments that I could be present for and other moments that Michael should cover. The recessional is one part of the day where we have VERY separate duties and we ALWAYS follow the rules. We have a rule that during the recessional, I’m shooting directly in front of the couple, walking backwards and Michael is shooting from the side. After the bride and groom recess, this is where our roles switch in a split second!
