Are you an up and coming photographer brand new to the Atlanta scene?  Are you looking for a new Atlanta photography group to connect with?  Are you browsing through the first page of google to email photographers to offer your second shooting services to them so you can get your Atlanta portfolio started?

If you’re new to starting wedding photography in the Atlanta area and looking to connect with photographers to network or second shoot with, my team and I have put a list together of some facebook groups, monthly meetings, and educational resources you HAVE to check out.  You can meet other professionals and work with a TON of photographers throughout the city.  They’re all pretty nice too. 😉  I recommend you join the facebook groups that interest you & introduce yourself!  Go to monthly meetings, meet the photographers in the Atlanta scene, & network!
