Thank you for your interest!


I’m looking for associate photographers for the 2021 wedding season! Are you interested??

During this 2020 wedding season, you’ll be a second shooter with me on available weekends and take on associate weddings independently under the Empiria Studios brand in 2021. A strong portfolio, professional equipment, and experience is required, but I’ll train you to shoot in Empiria’s style and support you along the way! Must be joyful, motivated, and organized 🙂

You’d be a great fit if: 

You love weddings and interacting with people.

You’ve shot at least 5 weddings as the lead shooter.

You take initiative as well as take direction well.

You’re able to problem solve and be creative.

You love photographing weddings but would rather not run a business.

Specific Details: 

As an associate photographer, you will be an independent contractor, so you’ll take as many weddings as you’d like in a year. Must have two cameras, multiple lenses, external flashes, and business insurance. Booking is approximately 8-12 months prior to the wedding date. Must have availability for at minimum 5 weddings per wedding season.

Pay includes: $100/hour during weddings, up to $1200/day. $150 per engagement session. Reimbursed for travel over a certain distance.


Please complete the application below. Thank you!
