2019 Wedding Photography Summer Internship Program in Washington, D.C. | Now Accepting Applications | Hannah Bjorndal Photography

Wedding photography internship season is upon us! As I’ve been reflecting on the 2018 year, hiring interns was without a doubt one of the best and most joyful elements of the entire year. I’m so please to announce that HBP will be hiring a SUMMER INTERN for the 2019 season!

Since starting my business, I’ve mentored 20+ new & growing photographers and small business owners. It’s a joy and a privilege to join other photographers & creative entrepreneurs on their journey to building a successful photography business. The HBP summer internship is the most in-depth, personal and fun way to get your foot in the door of the wedding industry and see how a real wedding pro does it!
This wedding photography internship will focus photography, social media, marketing & the wedding industry. Applicants interested in learning from any or all of these areas are welcome to apply!

Commitment to work 10-20 hours per week with a somewhat flexible schedule
Excellent knowledge & abilities with social media, particularly Instagram & Pinterest

An excellent eye for style & design
Interest in photography and/or the wedding industry
Interest and willingness to assist at weddings on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
General knowledge of Photoshop, Lightroom & WordPress is a big plus
Lover of tacos & margaritas is an even bigger plus

Some of your main responsibilities:
Managing & updating social media platforms for HBP
Assisting Hannah at sessions & weddings
Research and grow relationships with other industry vendors
Maintain & update the blog & website
Assisting with day-to-day client relationship management
Thinking of new and interesting ways to help HBP grow & thrive

This position is unpaid, but we’re more than happy to work with your school to help you get college credit if this is something you’re looking for! Due to the nature of the industry, the internship is a best fit for those living in and around the Washington, DC area or those who are able to live in the area for the summer.
