WEDDINGS

I fell in love with photographing weddings when I was 16. It has always been something that spoke to me - I love love, what can I say. I approach weddings with a fine art + documentary approach. I love working with clients who aren't afraid to be themselves. I love to get to know my clients and understand their personalities. I am here to tell your story for all that it is. Those little between moments on wedding days are the ones I live for. I also love to style to details and capture them with the attention they deserve, details are art. I currently accept 20 weddings a year - they are on a first come first serve basis. 

engagement + FAMILY

Engagements and Family Sessions are so so important. I think documenting chapters of your life is something so amazing + nothing quite tells a story like a photograph. It allows you to look back on chapters in your life in such a beautiful way. I am so happy and excited to document your everyday life. My engagement and family session vary between in home sessions to session off site at locations that mean a lot to you. I strive to capture who you are during this time in your life. I take on a limited amount of engagements and family sessions a year. I also hold mini sessions in the spring and fall in the Atlanta area and during my travels.

EDITORIAL

I have always loved photographing fashion and editorial work. From working with bridal companies, clothing designers, ring companies, and product lines. I have had the honor of working with Claire Pettibone, Trumpet & Horn, Ona Atlanta, The Atlantan, Southern Weddings, American Threads, and more... to work with me on a editorial shoot please contact me directly with more info about the shoot.

Food + lifestyle

I am extremely passionate about home design and colorful food - so photographing the two is always so much fun. I have had the honor of photographing and styling food + lifestyle work for Sun In My Belly in Atlanta +  Homespun in Atlanta. For more information about food + lifestyle work contact me directly. Food + Lifestyle work is subject to but not limited to the South East.

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
 

• One on One Workshops:
Take place in the Atlanta area or at destinations that are on my travel calendar for the year, for my travels please contact me via the contact form, my travels change often. One on One workshops dive into your brand, direction, social media, and they include a photoshoot for you to enhance your brand. The shoot is deigned between the attendee and myself - based on where you want to take your business. The best vendors will be involved in this process too. One on One's also include 3 Skype follow up's to discuss things after the workshop and even continue your education. I only do 6 One On One Workshops a year. For more information on One On One Workshops please fill out a contact form and I will be in touch shortly. 

• One Day Workshops:
One Day Workshops take place 4 times a year. Twice in Atlanta + Twice in Charleston. Each One Day Workshop only seats 10 attendees. These workshops are an all day affair that include a panel of creatives in the wedding industry, stylist, and designers. You will have one on one time with each speaker, a lunch to bond with attendees, a time for photographing tabletops, styled invites, rings, food, and other editorial pieces. The shoots will be based around still life during the day and a real couple in the evening to learn about how I interact with clients - there will be a bride (model) and a real couple to photograph at every workshop. I approach how I work with models vs. clients differently and I think that is so important to learn. The day's end with a lovely dinner among the attendees and vendors - you leave with amazing friendships that last a lifetime. For more information about One Day Workshops fill out a contact form + I will be in touch with you shortly. 

• Skype Mentoring:
I offer Skype Mentoring to photographers that aren't in the Atlanta for an easy way to learn. Skype Mentoring is a virtual workshop - literally. I give you homework! It involves digging deep into your brand, brand direction, how to get your ideal client, and so so much more. We will go over everything I go over in workshops. Though I don't set up a shoot for you in person I will help you create one for yourself + we will go over the images too. It is a complete portfolio review. I do 5 Skype Calls with you over the course of 5 months. We truly do get to know each other and it's super fun too. I only take on 5 Skype Mentoring sessions a year - for more information fill out the contact form and I will be in touch!
