You have the camera and the dream, but now what? Now you get to choose whether to sit on it, or, put it into action. I know how intimidating it can be to go from a hobby photographer to a paid professional. Especially when we see all the awesomeness out there and start the comparison mind game.


Well I'd love to get you past that point and start you off with confidence and real knowledge...not all the fluff others might sell you...sorry I'm all about keeping it real;) We, as wedding photographers are trusted with some pretty important memories so the "fake it till you make it" motto doesn't fly with me.


Choose from one of the opportunities below if you're ready to build your portfolio, target your style of clients, gain confidence when shooting, fine-tune your editing process and brand, and most importantly, learn how valuable you truly are!

Congrats on picking up a camera and falling in love with its possibilities!! It truly is an addicting and rewarding job. I fell in love back in high school, photographed my first wedding in 2002 and haven't looked back since. Well, that's a bit of a lie...a few times I wondered what the heck I got myself into, but thank goodness I'm stubborn enough to keep trudging along because it's what I'm meant to do. I made plenty of rookie mistakes and I'm here to help you avoid those. College is great, but one-on-one mentoring from someone who has "been there, done that" is invaluable. I shoot both film and digital if you want to grow in either medium. I primarily photograph couples now, but I have (and still do when time permits) photograph families, seniors and real estate. My mentoring will help you find your niche in this overly saturated market and give you the confidence and knowledge needed to provide your clients with quality.

the power of a photograph

People remember 10 percent of what they hear, 20 percent of what they read, and 80 percent of what they see.


Photography enables us to bring a perspective to a person, place or thing that may go unnoticed if not for the gift of freezing it in time. It has been used for marketing purposes for as long as we all can remember, and for good reason. It has the power to actually manipulate our thoughts and memories based on what emotions are triggered. It is a huge competitive differentiator amongst businesses, and continues to grow in value as our world becomes more online driven.


That's why I dedicate a good chunk of my time helping businesses find their voice through photography. Whether you're a social influencer, an Airbnb host, a luxury resort, or a fellow photographer...I've got you covered!

social influencer

$1000/day + travel

When you're a social influencer, Your brand is "You". It doesn't get much more personal than that. You're reeling with ideas and can see in your head the type of imagery you want to share. The captions are already being typed out. Now you just need the photos to make the caption more impactful. That's where I come in. From morning to night we can hike, camp, fish, read, sip coffee, plant a garden, do some yoga...whatever speaks to your brand and vision. There will be enough time to allow things to naturally unfold to create the kind of images that speak to the authentic soul. You'll have rights to these images to use on your social media feeds as well as on your website or blog.

travel content creator

After sharing wedding stories from all around the world, I gained nearly 5000 loyal followers on Instagram, and over half are there to get travel advice instead of wedding inspiration. I love when I re-post a travel reel and receive a message saying "I brought my family there last winter because I saw this video! Keep sharing!!" That's why I added Travel Content Creator to my career. I have professional camera gear including a drone and goPro, 2 beautiful daughters willing to pose in exchange for travel and a blog that ranks well on SEO. If you own an Airbnb, Resort or a Tourist Attraction offering a fun activity, let's create some compelling visuals for you to share!
