Meet Our New Associate Photographer: Alley!

I’m super excited to share some news that has been in the works for quite awhile – Jennifer Weinman Photography has grown to add an associate photographer!   After years of turning away brides either due to availability and schedules (sometimes I book up VERY far in advance!) or budgetary constraints, I decided it was time to grow the team and an associate photographer.  Her name is Alley, and she is AWESOME!

What this means is that all of the couples that book with our associate photographer will benefit from the same service, style, and attention to detail that ALL of our couples receive, with the main difference being that our associate will photograph your wedding and engagement session.  Rest assured, I am intensely picky, have high standards, and only want the best for EVERY couple, so there came some trepidation with handing over some of the responsibility to someone else.  But I’m 100% confident in our new associate program and that it will be the perfect fit for many couples!

From start to finish, when a couple decides they’d like to work with our associate, all of the booking details, planning, and final image delivery is handled by the JWP studio.  It’s a seamless process!  We’ll make sure that you’re comfortable with Alley and “click” too – it’s important to connect with your photographer!  And we value that connection for sure!  When a couple inquires with JWP and either that date is either already booked for myself or their budget suits an associate package batter, we’ll make sure you are able to review all of the information about working with our associate, and you can even schedule a consultation with her!

For Alley, this means that she’s able to continue what she loves doing as a photographer, but also hand over some of the behind the scenes tasks that are connected with maintaining a full service wedding photography business.  As a fellow mom that juggles many hats, I completely understand her desire to simplify!   We handle all of the editing, booking, and a good majority of the client communication.  This frees up Alley to be with her little girls and allows us to continue to offer a great service to our couples. It’s been a win-win for everyone!

We’re super excited to welcome Alley to the team!  She’s already worked alongside me in several ways and will continue to do some training with me this year, but she’s got years of experience and is incredibly talented!  I’m so excited to have her on board!  You can view more of her work here.  And if you have questions about our associate program or would like to learn more about booking Alley, please get in touch
