I assisted and did a bit of second shooting at a wedding in May. However, it was primarily an assisting gig where I was paid $15/hour and she required me to shoot on her memory card. While I don't necessarily regret it, it's not something that I am looking to do again. I feel like I am at a point where I am better than just assisting and taking a few shots up the aisle while the main photographer is at the alter. I feel comfortable completely solo for most wedding circumstances. I did my first solo in June, and have another in December. I would like to work on improving and building my wedding portfolio and feel like I need to do a few more second-shooting gigs where I can actually have rights to the images. I need to do some portfolio building in the wedding arena. How would I go about this and what is standard? I would love to work with that other photographer again but don't want her to feel like I am trying to trample on her business since it's obvious that I am trying to start my own. I am really not near her level yet, business wise. She does 30+ a year and charges upwards of $2500. Tips? Where to start and how to ask for what I want?
