When I first began photographing weddings in 2008, I remember noticing that I almost NEVER was asked to sign a second shooter contract. There were so many issues, and confusion over copyright and portfolio. I learned the hard way: You need to protect yourself, your studio, your clients, and your team. You also need clear communication.
then these wedding photography contracts and studio guides are perfect for you. I've actually used these for my own business, to up-level my client experience and security while growing! Because you've worked hard to get where you're at. And wether you just want to be prepared for when the time comes (hello, two dream clients on the same date?!), or if you're planning to scale your team, these wedding photography contract bundles will have your back.

+ Studio Guides
The ever-illusive associate shooter contract, by state! Attorney approved and pandemic-proof, this protects your studio and your clients.
Two years ago, I noticed that any time I second shot for a friend, they didn't have a contract for me!
Which naturally means I was giving them my attorney approved contract for us to stay safe and legal. Around that time I was also expanding my wedding photography business and I hated writing out such long emails to my associates and second shooters. I realized that I desperately needed to create a studio employee "handbook". After 2 years of perfecting it, and interviewing/talking with other photographers, I'm thrilled to share it with you too!
Today I'm sharing the culmination of years' work: in three easy bundles.
Naturally, the easiest way to get started is with a second shooter contract and "handbook" for your newest team members. Almost all of us hire second shooters, and we can't always have the same person— afterall, half of them are looking to run their own business too.
You've got to communicate clearly with your second shooters, and protect yourself. So what are you waiting for?
Ready to get started?
Most of us are in this boat. If you're a wedding photographer, you never want to just go it alone! Whether its an assistant, or a second shooter to capture the whole day. This is the only bundle you'll find that includes contracts and guides for second shooters, associates, and a BONUS contract and guide for your assistant.
Everyone hopes to get to this point— but once you're there it can quickly become nerve wrecking to let go and hand the reins to someone else. Release some tension with this bundle. I've got your back.
Clear communication and expectations are key to a successful photo team. How you present yourself is equally important to maintain respect and quality standards in your business. I'll help with both.
You are literally a life saver! Thank you so much. I can’t tell you the amount of weight you have lifted off my shoulders. Thank you❣️
