I recommend using Dynamic to link the view options of both graphics 
to the same variables.  As one of the graphics is rotated, the 
updated values of the options will be automatically written to the 
variables which will cause the other graphic to update accordingly.

DynamicModule[{viewpoint = ViewPoint /. Options[Graphics3D],
                viewvertical = ViewVertical /. Options[Graphics3D]},
   Show[#, ViewPoint -> Dynamic[viewpoint],
      ViewVertical -> Dynamic[viewvertical]] & /@ {graph1, graph2}]]
