    I worked at Essence Photo & Video as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I shot for Essence for nearly 12 years and one of the reasons I stayed so long was because I always felt like I was being supported by the owners. Even when the economy wasn't doing so well they always kept me booked and the paychecks always arrived on time. It's a really great company for young and hungry photographers to get their footing in the industry.

    Cons

    photographers are responsible for for editing their own weddings. Some people prefer this but it really eats up a lot of time for no additional pay.
