It’s your event – you deserve to enjoy it!

Starting at $150 - $200 per hour (2-hour minimum)

So much effort goes into planning an event, from brainstorming ideas to setting up the venue. You’re already putting in the hard work to make sure everything runs smoothly – the last thing you want is to spend time and energy worrying about taking photos. That’s where I come in!

I'll be there to capture every moment, big or small, in the form of stunning, candid event photography that will preserve these incredible memories forever. From large events like exhibition photography and festival photography to small, intimate celebrations, I’ll work tirelessly to document all the special moments as they happen so that you can focus on being present and having an amazing time.

  • Do I get to choose my images?
    The default is editor's choice! When you offer me the trust to choose the images myself, I can create your final edited photo collection as quickly and efficiently as possible. I don’t take requests to view a proof gallery, since its distribution disrupts a consistent workflow and can increase the turnaround time.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes! I want to make sure that money is not an obstacle to us creating amazing images together! I can offer customized payment plans to break any fees into smaller payments, which has been very helpful for many past clients. Please don’t hesitate to contact me regarding any financial concerns.
  • Do you travel outside of Charlotte, NC?
    Yes! I love traveling and connecting with people from all over the world! I charge a travel reimbursement for anything further than a 30-mile radius from my current location (Charlotte, NC) to compensate for miles driven and personal time spent traveling. If you’d like to see the travel reimbursement breakdown, drop that request in the contact form!
  • What is your turnaround time?
    Up to two weeks. Definitely keep this in mind, especially if you have any deadlines or due dates you need to meet! Rush edits are available on an individual basis with a rush charge.
  • Why is sales tax charged for photography services?
    In the state of North Carolina, sales tax is due on all services that deliver a physical finished product, including photography sessions. The NC Department of Revenue considers digital images delivered via electronic download or USB, along with physical prints, wall art, and albums, to be tangible and taxable products. As such, photography session and event fees are also subject to sales tax.
  • Is a deposit required to book?
    Yes, the nonrefundable deposit is $100.00 for creative portrait sessions and $200.00 for personal branding sessions and event photography. The remainder can be paid in full or split into smaller payments through a payment plan. Once the deposit and completed session agreement are both received, you’ll receive a confirmation email to let you know your session is officially booked. Payments are made through an online invoice with several payment methods for your convenience, including credit card, debit card, Zelle, CashApp, Venmo, and PayPal.

  • Do you direct posing? I’m kinda nervous...
    Yes, I GOT YOU! If you feel a bit nervous about posing, I promise you you’re not alone. Posing for model photography can be an unfamiliar experience that takes you out of your comfort zone, and everyone I work with feels those nerves on the day of the shoot. But posing for photoshoots is not some magical quality you’re simply born with – it’s a skill that you practice and learn over time. We all have the capability to showcase our unique beauty in front of the camera, and as your photographer, I’ll be there to direct posing and make sure you look good (and feel good about looking good)!

  • Can you photoshop/retouch my skin?
    Yes, but I will only remove or change things that are not a permanent, essential part of who you are! I never do any type of body modification, because it can contribute to negative body image, which we’re all trying to fight against. The genuine representation of your body and your beauty is incredibly important in all of our journeys towards self-acceptance and self-compassion. I want you to love yourself how you are in the present! You’re already the complete package – there’s no need to mess with perfection.

  • What level of photography do I need to be at to sign up for mentorship?
    Any level! No experience required. Each mentorship is carefully curated to match the goals and needs of each mentee. I am available for free consultations (up to 30-minute) via Google Meet for anyone who has more questions as they prepare for mentorship.
  • I’m not sure what I need to work on. Do you help with figuring that out?
    Absolutely! When we’re getting started with any pursuit, it’s hard to know right off the bat which areas of our work need improvement. Part of our mentoring session can be dedicated to pinpointing your strengths and identifying areas where we could develop your skills further. Together we’ll figure out the direction we need to go!
  • Do I pay all at once or do you offer payment plans?
    Either works! We can create a payment plan together that works best for you.
