MENTOR SESSIONS

Everyone starts somewhere.

When I first started in this business I shot 5 wedding in a year. I wasn’t sure how to start, where to get clients, or how this was going to pan out. In my second year of business I even broke my leg 2 weeks before the first wedding on the season. But I didn’t let these obstacles stop me. I powered through, shooting 8 weddings on crutches and earning a name for myself as someone who always shows up and works through adversity. With great recommendations and a never failing work ethic I took my small business to full time in less than a year. Today I shoot over 35 weddings I year and even have clients who ask what dates they can choose from.

I’ve shot weddings all over the US - including Boston, Seattle, New York, and of course all over North Carolina. I’ve done hours of research on the best marketing strategies and techniques, attended and taught workshops, and acquired so many valuable experiences along the way.

If you’re wanting to learn, looking for inspiration, or need a boost to get back on track these mentor sessions could be exactly what you’re looking for.

TAKE IT FROM THEM:

“Jessica’s mentoring session genuinely helped me get more work lined up. Her insight for my website was brutally honest but entirely what I needed in order to be successful. I enjoyed being out of my element in a different environment than what I’m used to every day. It really helped me be more receptive and less defensive about my work, because it’s really easy to feel that way. My website was entirely too cluttered and complicated with too much fluff. She helped me completely redesign my website and has been there for me when I’ve needed advice here and there even after our mentoring session. I highly recommend Jessica if you’re looking into anyone for mentoring, she knows what she’s doing and she’ll definitely help you understand what direction you need to head in in order to be the best you can be in your business”

"I found Jessica during the early stages of ideation for my photography business.  I truly had no idea what to do or where to begin, but Jessica’s experience and willingness to help made it so much easier for me to hit the ground running.  In the few months that I’ve worked with them, Jessica has been a wealth of knowledge and has helped diagnose issues, problem solve, and improve my brand’s identity. Consulting is more than just giving advice; Jessica has gone above and beyond what I expected and I can’t thank her enough. Through this, we’ve built a consensus of trust and friendship between each other and I look forward to working with them more."

"Jessica is an open book of knowledge when it comes to photography. Not only is she insanely talented behind the camera with her unique shooting style and posing but she is amazing at the business side of things too. If you're struggling with finding your style or feeling kind of lost with marketing or targeting your ideal clients reach out to Jessica! She will simplify everything and help you reach your goals!"
