Not gonna lie, I have so many feelings about writing today’s post. This wedding photography internship has been a long time coming.

When I started building my empire in 2009, having an intern wasn’t even on my radar.

I didn’t have any grand plans at that point.

Honestly, I was just trying to get through each day and find clients who would pay me.

Since then, things have improved slightly greatly improved.

Now we want to give back and provide an internship opportunity.

Check out all the deets below to see if you’re a good fit!
