Crane’s Chicago Wedding Photography


Photographer Application

If you’re passionate about photography and either have availability full-time or on the weekends, we want to hear from you! We’re looking for second and third photographers to document weddings and other special events in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas. We’re a small, craft photography studio that takes pride in the close relationships we build with our clients, our mutual respect for one another and our unrivaled passion for capturing awe-inspiring imagery worth of being cherished for generations! If you’re talented, creative, personable, driven and dedicated to growing both individually and as part of a team, you’ve come to the right place.

Note: We only check our applications if we’re currently looking to fill a position. If you’re interested, please complete the form. We’ll let you know if and when we’d like to speak further.


We hold ourselves accountable for the highest level of quality and service possible. We ask that our photographers also share these three qualifications:

1. Exceptional Personality – We’re looking for driven, self-motivated, passionate individuals that LOVE working behind the camera and interacting with clients. Even though you’ll spend more of your time behind the lens, this is a people-oriented industry. We’re looking for creatives like ourselves that embrace both sides of the equation!

2. Strong Technical Skills – If you’re creative, artistic and possess advanced technical skills, you may be a perfect fit for our team. These skills are further developed over time, so no need to be an expert, but we’re looking for someone with a strong foundation to build from.

3. Professional Gear – Although much of your ability to create world-class images depends on your experience and other factors like lighting, we also expect you to own your own professional equipment, including cameras, lenses and flashes. If you only have access to prosumer or entry-level equipment, you may still qualify for an internship role.
