As a wedding photographer based in South West North Dakota, I’m looking for second photographers for some 2024-2025 wedding dates. I love working with a second photographer because it means my couples get even more fabulous pictures, and I’ve found that I always learn something from the other photographers I work with too. There is nothing I love more than creative collaboration! So if you are ready to second shoot for a Wedding Photographer based in North Dakota, keep scrollin’.
What does a Second Shooter do?
As a second photographer for Taylar Dawn Photography, you’ll come along to shoot a wedding with me (or lots of weddings!). We’ll do a lot of shooting together on the day, and may sometimes split up to divide and conquer, like if the couple are getting ready separately. You may also assist with other miscellaneous tasks, like organizing family portraits, snapping Polaroids, or catching some short videos! I’ll edit all photos for the couple’s wedding day gallery, but you also are able to keep the raw files you shoot and are welcome to edit them yourself to display them in your portfolio and on social media.
Second shooters are paid per wedding based on experience and hours of wedding day coverage. Some weddings may involve travel!
As a second shooter, you should:
* Be reliable, punctual, and organized & fun.
* Be confident, upbeat, and kind to couples.
* Be able to spend up to 10 hours on your feet and shooting.
* Have a professional attitude.
* Work well under pressure.
* Have a genuine love for photography and want to learn and grow.
* Have a full-frame DSLR or mirrorless camera and lenses.
*Love Schitt’s Creek or Grey’s Anatomy. (Okay, I’m joking. Not required, but definitely bonus points)
Extra job perks: I am the queen of snacks and will always have some for us, you get some delicious reception dinners, you get to listen to all my bad jokes, you get to witness a beautiful love story, and you can learn all about shooting, gear, posing, and business details because I love talking about allll of it.
