How it works


How it works

Head & Heart photography offers a limited number of positions on the site for wedding photographers, family/session photographers and videographers – which means there will almost always be more applications than positions available.  After submitting an application I will review all of your information and be in touch about current openings with H&H, and if there are currently no positions available, I will let you when the next opening might be.  If there is an open position and you have the strongest application I will invite you to interview and potentially have you second shoot with me before making the final decision about offering you a place on H&H.


It takes a lot of time and energy  to create and maintain a place on Head & Heart Photography, and to continually generate as many high quality leads as possible for member photographers.  As such, if your application is accepted and you are offered a position on the H&H website you will be asked to commit to a one-year contract, and pay a monthly fee based on whichever membership you choose.  At the end of the first year you will have an opportunity to renew for another year before I open your position to the next qualified photographer on the waiting list.

You are your own photographer

As a member photographer of Head & Heart Photography you remain your own photographer, but you would now also be an independent contractor of Head & Heart Photography. As a member of H&H Photography you will have your own ‘mini-site’ complete with a bio, a portfolio gallery and an email address specific to your H&H account. Any weddings/sessions that you book and photograph for H&H will be done so as an independent contractor – this means, primarily, that you always have the right to accept or decline any lead generated by H&H. This also means that you must already be set up as a stand-alone, professional photographer before applying for membership.  Most importantly, you will have to be over 18 years old, own (and be fully competent using) your own gear and that you must have your own photographer’s liability insurance.

Communications & Booking

One of the goals of H&H is to create and maintain an atmosphere that is supportive to member photographers, but also allows them to continue gaining experience and building confidence in their ability to manage the business side of being a photographer.  So once a lead comes to you, it is up to you to establish contact, go over shoot details, logistics and package options with potential clients.  Once a tentative agreement is reached, I will create and send out the contracts on behalf of H&H.


Depending on the nature of the shoot, clients will send their signed contract with a date reservation fee (deposit) to H&H to lock in their date.  All payments from clients will be sent to H&H either by check or some form of e-payment.  You will receive a payment each time H&H receives a payment from the clients you book.  *Take Note* As you would be an independent contractor, I would be sending you a 1099 at the end of each year you that you are a member of Head & Heart Photography.
