Working With Us

Mykey Day is the premier Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, London & South-East Wedding Photography Studio. Our style of wedding photography is deeply rooted in fine-art, influenced by wedding photojournalism and fashion photography. We produce creative, impactful, and spectacular wedding imagery that’s romantic, fun, and emotional.

Mykey Day Photography is an established and respected Kent wedding photography studio,  catering for couples looking for fantastic photography as well as industry leading wedding albums to remember the most important day of their lives. Mykey has shot weddings and events in most premier South-East and London Wedding venues and beyond, as well as Destination Weddings abroad in Rome, Paris, Crete, Cyprus, Malta, and across Europe.

Each photographer is carefully selected for their combination of talent, creativity, personality, and drive.  Because we invest significant time and resources in the training and development of each team member, we are highly selective in who we bring into the program.

For any / all positions: In order to be considered we need you to have a strong familiarity with our style of wedding photography and business approach.  As such it is highly recommended that you check out the whole of our website and do your research before applying…

For Photographers & Lighting Assistants: We get literally dozens of applications per month however the vast majority are not suitable – to see if you have what it takes we suggest you read this page carefully and check the whole of the website before applying – and as and when second shooting opportunities with Mykey Day Photography arise we contact the most suitable candidates.

Shoot To Earn

We have second (and sometimes even third) shooters at 95% or more of our wedding events, and we’re always looking for top talent to help us tell the story of our clients’ most important events!

If you are already an establish wedding photographer with all the equipment and experience necessary we’re looking to hire you to second or third shoot our events.

If you’re able to work independently but also help move and set up lighting equipment and pitch creative ideas, then read on…

Advantages

Second Shooting weddings is a great way to supplement your already established wedding photography studio with additional low-stress events and income.  Most crucially we tend to confirm our second shooters up to and over a year in advance so you can be sure of a steady source of additional income instead of scouring facebook pages for last-minute shout-outs and cancellations from unknowns!
 
All we ask is that you commit to approximately 10 dates or more and treat those dates as serious bookings with the same respect you would treat your own…

Shoot To Learn

This is the most popular option and our preferred way of acquiring long-term second shooters who will become world-class wedding photographers under us – and have a fun time doing it!

Whilst many facebook wedding photographers picked up a camera and watched youtube and call themselves a professional now because they book a handful of clients each year – the long term successful wedding photographers began their career this way by shadowing and learning from the best.  As full-time professionals there is so much we can teach you and you need to learn before starting your journey as a professional wedding photographer:

Advantages

  • Photography Basics and Advanced Techniques
  • Advanced Lighting (never be scared of a dark reception hall or a last minute sparklers outside request again!)
  • Advanced Posing and Lighting – Making those WOW pictures fast and stress-free
  • Booking and Managing Weddings
  • Wedding Planning and Management
  • Crisis Management
  • SEO and Client Acquisition
  • Product Design and Best Website / Client Practices
  • Classic Things To Avoid (that youtube and facebook won’t tell you about!)
  • REAL wedding experience with REAL clients that you will actually learn from (many new wedding photographers quickly learn that shooting models on a training course is NOT the same!)
  • Chance for Paid Work Once You Have Mastered The Basics

 

If you’d like to begin your journey with us click the button below and we’ll be in touch! All we ask is that you commit to a quick chat at a cafe to make sure we ‘vibe’, and that you’re looking to attend at least 10 events or more per year (any less and you’re not really going to learn enough to be considered long term…)

Working With A World-Class Photography Studio

Our new second shooters are often gob-smacked at how much more relaxed and fun Mykey Day Photography weddings are – and this is all down to working closely with our clients and having a world-class team that knows what they are doing.  We even have wedding venues remark how much less fuss and confusion our weddings are, never realising it’s because of the proper planning and professional approach our studio takes to every wedding event.

 

Whether you are newer wedding photographer looking to gain valuable experience and skills, or a well-trained wedding photography professional looking to make extra cash outside of your normal bookings, we have a place for you here…

are you ready to start your journey?

OUR CORE VALUES

CREATIVITY

We believe creativity, innovation, and client happiness, go hand-in-hand.  We strive to always improve, sharpening our talents so as to deliver increasingly spectacular results.  We draw on all fields of creativity and channel them into our consistent drive to create imagery and products no one else has dared before…

CLIENT FOCUS

We only consider our job done when our clients are happy. We endeavour to treat our clients as family, and we consider client interaction and satisfaction to be at the core of what we do, giving 100% and no less.  We pre-empt our clients’ needs, using our industry and professional experience to meet their needs before they even know they have them.  We never over-promise, but we always over-deliver.

EQUALITY

We don’t see colour, race, sex, wealth, or religion – we only see family.  We commit 100% to every client as if they were members of our own family, whatever their background and whatever their wedding plans.

INNOVATION IN THE INDUSTRY

We don’t just do what everyone else does, we take a hard look at what we do and always ask “How can it be more perfect?” We are not constrained by what our peers and the industry do, we are constrained only by the consistent drive to make our imagery, products, and client experience the most amazing it can be.

LGBT FRIENDLY 🏳️‍🌈

As mentioned above we don’t see colour, race, sex, wealth, or religion – we only see family.  We have covered many same-sex and LGBTQ+ weddings. and events, and are excited to work with you.
