We are growing! Over the past few years, Sarah and I have watched as we’ve had to pass along weddings to other photographers because I’ve been booked. SO, MGP is looking for a lead associate photographer to join our team. We’d love to offer our clients another option for a photographer and we need YOU to help! See below for the official job description.
