Meet Michelle & Kelsie

get to know us

We're best friends, business partners, and obsessed with Bath and Body Works Candles. 

After five years in the wedding industry, we have experienced and learned a lot about growing our businesses. We invested in courses, in-person workshops, and so much more. The crazy thing? Our business 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.

We want to show you how to develop this mindset! We've created The Second Shooter Society to help wedding photographers and second shooters alike transform their businesses so that they can focus on what matters most: serving their clients.

THE FOUNDERS

Hi there! I’m Kelsie, and I’m a wedding & senior portrait photographer here in Columbus, Ohio! I’m a huge fan of color, whether it’s in my images, a bouquet of flowers in my home, or my bold lipstick (my favorite way to take a bad hair day to the next level!!).

I have a heart for people and love gracefully serving my clients and other professionals in the industry. This love for serving people well is the foundation behind The Second Shooter Society. I believe that everyone deserves to be served in the very best ways possible, and I am so excited to share some of my tips and tricks with you about how I’ve able to build a successful business that does just that. 

In my free time you can find me outside in nature, trying a new recipe, decorating my house, or just hanging out with my fiancé, Cory. I'd love to get to know you over in the Facebook Group! 


Hi friend! I'm Michelle, a wedding photographer and iced coffee lover living just outside Columbus, Ohio. 

The dream for the Second Shooter Society came from my desire for every photographer to have (and be) a reliable second shooter at every wedding, and from my own experience that second shooting actually made me a MUCH better photographer! It's such a golden opportunity to make sure couples are served doubly well on their wedding day, and I still second shoot to this day because I love helping other photographers and picking up new tips and tricks.

When I'm not taking photos, there's a good chance you'll find me laying out in the sun with a good book, cuddled on the couch watching a movie with Josh, or working out at our local Crossfit gym. I'm so excited you're here, and can't wait to welcome you into our Second Shooter Society family!
