For Photographers

I am extremely passionate about coaching and helping other photographers build a successful business. With a background in business + finance, I tend to have a different perspective on things and I absolutely love sharing what I've learned over the past 6+ years in building my own successful wedding photography business.

Includes 3 hours of Q+A time, discussing whatever topics you'd like!  Plus lunch + head shots

Now, I want to pay it forward and help new photographers by offering coaching sessions and photography workshops, designed to encourage and inspire artists to follow their dreams.  Over the past 6 years, I have learned SO MUCH about lighting, posing, marketing, editing, social media, networking, branding, creating efficiencies within the business, workflows, pricing, the technical side of shooting, styling, off-camera lighting, creating wedding day timelines, and how to run a successful business.  

Coaching sessions will be tailored to you - which means no two coaching sessions will ever be the same!  We'll get together at my home office in historic Charleston, SC or a nearby coffee shop - or even Skype - and discuss whatever topics you'd like - I'm a completely open book and I want to share as much knowledge with you as I possibly can!  We'll also grab lunch together and I'll shoot some new head shots for you!

I remember what it felt like to be just starting out as a new photographer in a saturated market.  The self-doubt, the fear, the uncertainty... it can be overwhelming!  I owe so much to the photographers who gave me a chance to learn + grow under them.
