the refined second shooter

We're Michelle & Kelsie, the girls behind the Refined Second Shooter. If you're a wedding photographer looking to up your game OR a portrait photographer hoping to jump into the wedding world, you're in the RIGHT PLACE.

Our businesses grew in leaps and bounds when we started SECOND SHOOTING!!! By developing the mindset of a refined second shooter, you'll not only be a HUGE help to the photographers and couples you serve, but you'll come away with creative images you LOVE.

THE rss workshop

experience

module 1: the why

To kick off the content, Michelle and I reiterate the why behind second shooting and some of the goals that you should keep in mind when you start serving as a second shooter. 

Most of you have likely never photographed a wedding before, so in this module, we share all about the wedding day logistics. We cover different situations you might encounter, the roles & responsibilities that you may have on a wedding day as a second shooter, and so much more. 

module 2: the what

module 3: the how (portraits)

This is the fun part! Here we are going to teach you ALL about how to capture those portfolio-worthy shots while still getting images that primary photographer LOVES! Hint: this is how you get asked to shoot with that photographer again & again! 

module 4: the how (flash)

In our final lesson, we teach you about all things flash & reception lighting, both on camera and off camera. You'll learn about lighting modifiers, the angles of light, different lighting set-ups and so much more! 

Styled Shoot

At our workshops, Michelle and I put together a gorgeous styled shoot for all of our attendees to practice what they learned. We start with a mini posing lesson and then coach you through how to capture the portfolio-worthy shots we talked about in module 3. Plus, we set-up our reception lighting and you can play around with that as well!
