Owning your own photography business is typically a one man (or woman – girl power!) show, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be lonely or isolating. Sure, you spend time with your couples at sessions and on their wedding day, but what about the time in-between when you’re at your desk or on your couch editing and emailing the day away? Thanks to our obsession with technology and social media, there has been increase of friendships and networking opportunities with just a few clicks. We came up with a list of some of the best Facebook groups for wedding photographers that are focused on growth, kindness, and community. So whether you are looking to share your images with other photographers to just want to see the other magic people are making, there is sure to be a place for you to connect with other kick-ass humans.

Sister Photogs Group

Admins: Stephanie Rogers, Heather Thompson, Caroline Malone

Number of members: 1,055

Mission Statement: We love growth. It hurts, it’s chaos, but it’s oh so, so good for you in the long run, so let’s build a sister photog community together! Share your images, ideas, inspiration, shooting and editing tips, gear, or program advice.

From the Admins:

  • I think Sister Photogs has affected the wedding photography community positively! It’s a wonderful and safe place for women to connect on a personal and business level. We’ve already had a Dallas local meet-up where about 13 gals showed up to meet each other. Since then I have already seen a couple of them hang out and photograph each other which is such a beautiful thing. Community is so important and I think having such a positive group on the internet these days is such a great success! Sometimes I think it’s hard to not feel judged when asking questions, whether you are a beginner or long time photographer, and it’s amazing how quickly you see a community build each other up.
  • We’re an all female photography community all about learning from each other, growing, and also connecting personally. We share inspiration, have monthly photo contests, bi-weekly or monthly photography tips, and want to just encourage discussion with each other. Our group and Instagram is all about diversity as we think any and every type of person deserves love and respect whether they are a photographer or the client.

Photography Mentoring (for Non-Douches)

Admins: Kristen Kaiser, Edward Kaiser

Number of members: 4,636

Mission Statement: If you’re a photographer who is eager to learn + network + encourage + inspire + be inspired, welcome! This group is education focused and not an “image sharing” group so please ask for constructive criticism (CC) when posting images. Exception would be providing insight + giving advice. While y’all have lovely work no one is here to show off. 😉

From the Admins:

  • Photography Mentoring (for Non-Douches) is a Facebook group that is just that: photography mentoring, no douches allowed. The name is meant to get a few laughs and not take ourselves too seriously, but we are serious about providing a space for photographers of all styles and skill levels to come together and grow as a group without any judgement or criticism. The group ranges from those who just purchased their first camera (or are still working from an iPhone), to seasoned professionals who have been in the industry 30+ years. Photography Mentoring (for Non-Douches) has become a online safe haven for photographers to learn and grow with positive and uplifting vibes only!
  • Photographers can be nasty. If you’re looking for a group to show off your latest work, share criticism to those who haven’t requested it, or use beginners’ questions as a chance to rudely insert your “my way or the highway” opinions, this group probably won’t be a great fit. We have a zero tolerance policy for douchey behavior in this group. However, if you’re eager to learn, network, encourage, inspire and be inspired, we’d love for you to join us! Everyone is welcome in this group, but there’s only one important question to be answered first: are you a douche?

Lovers of Photography + The Office

Admins: Kristen Kaiser

Moderators: Madeleine Frost

Number of members: 1,073

Mission Statement: The Office memes/gifs + photography. Nothing else allowed.

From the Admins:

  • Lovers of Photography + The Office has two purposes: to bring together photographers who love The Office and provide a space for us to lightheartedly relate our own experiences with photography to the hilarious and witty situations the crew from Scranton find themselves in. The only posts allowed in this group are images or gifs from The Office paired with quotes or experiences photographers often go through. Photography can be an overwhelming industry and Lovers of Photography + The Office provides an opportunity for photographers to combine their unhealthy obsessions with The Office with their other great love for art (and venting).
  • If you haven’t seen The Office, you should probably get on that before joining this group (among numerous other reasons)! If you haven’t seen the whole season, the group will probably make little to no sense to you. If, however, you’ve been binge watching the entire season for the past five years (no skipping Scott’s Tots!), you’re about to find your new online happy place!

Dirtybootsandmessyhair COMMUNITY

Admins: Nils Osenbrück, Merve Nur Demirci, Dani Mancini

Number of members: 2,782

Mission Statement: This group is focussed around adventurous couples, extraordinary wedding days, and incredible photography.

From the Admins:

  • We actually started as an Instagram page. Within a few months we were blown away that it had attracted so many followers, who appreciated our approach to unique styles of wedding photography. That spurred us on to find ways of connecting those photographers, and creating a tighter knit community that could share inspiration and ideas with each other. Our Facebook page is one way that we’ve done this. Since launching the DBMH Facebook group, we like to think it’s helped the wedding photography community get the inspiration they need to find creative ways of capturing unique weddings. We hope it’s helped creatives to push their work – and their adventurousness – to the next level.
