What it Means to Use an Associate Wedding Photographer or Videographer for your Wedding Day
If you're thinking about using an associate photographer or videographer through Sierra Dawn Photo or another company, here's what you should know. An associate is a highly skilled photographer/videographer who works for the company and has the same level of experience as the owners and main team. They are industry standard, typically being used for multiple weddings in one day or in case of emergencies. Associates have the same professional equipment, knowledge, and skill as the main team and are familiar with the company's approach and specific style. They are carefully selected and given extensive notes in advance to ensure they are fully prepared for your wedding day.
Using an associate is a great option for couples who love the work and style but cannot have the main photographer present due to popular wedding dates, scheduling conflicts or emergencies. We ensure that with us you will receive the same style of photography/videographer as seen on our website and social media, and the main team takes care of all editing and post production to ensure consistency in the final look. The main team typically handles all planning, email and phone correspondence, problem-solving, and online management software to keep things organized and on schedule while the associates are present so shoot your event/wedding day of.
