A paid internship opportunity for local young women who want to gain real experience in running a creative business.

The Abby Anderson Wedding Intern Program

You will hold reflectors and camera gear, fluff dresses, move furniture, stand in the rain, enjoy wild sunsets, learn about off-camera lighting, eat cake, get sore feet and witness how giddy and weird I get in the car at 11 p.m. at night. You will learn a TON about being a photographer, but even more about how to give clients an amazing experience.

• Friendly and hard working
• Comfortable in basic camera knowledge
• Eager to grow your skills
• Available 12 weekend days May - Dec


• One full training day in my home office where you'll learn lighting setups and more. 
• Detailed instruction on how to shoot key wedding day moments.
• A guided tour of my client workflow.
•  The experience of assisting at 10-12 wedding days throughout 2019. (Wedding days are paid)
• Full access to ask me anything about photography or running a creative business.
