The Fully Booked Assistant Photographer is live and I’m so excited! This is an online group coaching program for photographers of all stages who want to become wedding photographers. Starting your journey in the wedding industry is hard. I’m letting you learn from my mistakes so you can take the fast track to becoming a wedding photographer a lot more smoothly than I did.
Inside The Fully Booked Assistant Photographer, we’ll start by getting you signed up and logged into our group coaching calendar as well as our private support group via Slack. Then it’s off to the races! You’ll have instant access to all modules and lesson to dive right in and learn at your own pace. Every other week, for 8 weeks, we’ll have live group coaching calls where you can ask me questions with immediate answers. You’ll be able to connect with photographers who are in the same boat with you and lean on each other for support!
This is a no fluff kind of program! I’m giving you all the information straight so you can listen, apply what you learned, and start booking weddings as a second shooter! We all start somewhere and bringing your journey to becoming a wedding photographer all starts with being a second shooter first! It’s the quickest and easiest way to learn what it’s like on a wedding day. You’ll be able to gain so much on the job experience and capture tons of images to grow your wedding portfolio.
What you’ll learn inside of The Fully Booked Assistant Photographer
We’ll cover everything you’ll need to know in order to be an outstanding second photographer! The first module is all about where to look for second shooting jobs as well as how to book them. Included are also free email templates to send to photographers to inquire about working for them. There are certain things you must include in your inquiry email and my templates cover it all!
The second module we go over how you should prepare to photograph a wedding. What gear you should have, what an emergency kit is and what to put in it, questions to ask the lead photographer before the wedding, etc. Being a prepared second photographer is going to make you a hero on the wedding day and impress the photographer you’re working for.
Next we’ll move onto the wedding day itself! From what to photograph during the “getting ready” part of the day and what to say, all the way through the reception. Knowing where to be and what to shoot is a little daunting. A wedding is something that can never be redone so knowing ahead of time what you should be focusing on during each part of the day is essential.
In the fourth module you’ll learn what to do after a wedding day. If you loved working with that photographer, I share tips on how to get rebooked with them. You’ll also learn how to deliver the images to your photographer. As well as what to do with the images you took to grow your own portfolio.
Included are two bonus lessons! Pricing is something that most photographers struggle with. As a second photographer it’s hard to know what your rate should be. I’m sharing the industry standards on second shooting rates and how to price yourself based on your experience. Pricing doesn’t have to be hard, as long as you know your worth!
The second bonus lessons we get to talk about how to stand out! There are a lot of photographers out there. It’s challenging to stand out in a saturated marked of wedding photographers. I’m giving you my secret sauce on how to stand out as a second shooter! Doing these things helped my book over 100 second shooting jobs over the course of 6 years. Which resulted in gaining a ton of wedding experience. Plus I had a huge portfolio to then market myself as a lead photographer to book my own weddings!

You’ll be able to chat with other students and ask questions and get support on a daily basis.
