Do you feel like you're spinning your wheels and not able to get to where you wish you were? You study other photographer's work, but you just can't get the look or maybe your images are blurry? Teaching is something that has always been near and dear to my heart and I'm happy to be offering mentoring sessions for those photographers who are sick of spinning their wheels. My mentoring sessions are ideal for photographers looking for actionable steps to improve their business and technical skill set... and doing it all in the fast lane!
This is the option for those who want someone that's all yours to answer every single one of your questions. No question is left unanswered and I take you behind the scenes in everything I do. Nothing is off the table with this session! These sessions are 3-4 hours, in person or on Skype. A 50% retainer holds your session date.
Sessions can include (but are not limited to):
Finding your style/Posing
How to get your work published
Styled shoots - when/how/why?
Standing out from the crowd
Shooting in all lighting conditions
Review of your portfolio and website
Pricing and contracts
Building a trustworthy brand
Want to go even deeper into client experience, lighting, and posing? We can add a live shoot, in which I set up a couple to photograph, and take you through every posing and manual setting decision I make. You leave with new portfolio images and a new skill set to use moving forward!
A slightly more condensed version of my one-on-one mentoring sessions, lasting 1-2 hours and focusing your most pressing questions/areas of need, about 2-4 topics covered.
Sessions topics can be (but not limited to):

"We had the privilege of having Tahiry photograph our Engagement Shoot, Wedding Ceremony, and 'Elopement' in Yosemite National Park. And let me tell you, BEST decision we made during our wedding planning! As with many brides, picking the perfect photographer was high on my priority list. We have a ton of talented Photographers along the Coast, so I did all the researching and got a lot of references. I think what really sets Tahiry apart from the rest is her attention to detail. She goes above and beyond what is expected from her. When the weather started looking nasty for my outdoor wedding ceremony, she already had clear umbrellas ordered for the bridal party, just in case. When I had the crazy idea to say our vows in the dead of Winter in Yosemite, she had alternative trails and locations mapped out to make it happen before plans were even set. And when I wanted to take bridal pictures in the middle of Palafox at 10pm, she had her team stop traffic.. Literally.. To make it happen. She is super responsive. And made it easy for my husband (????) and I to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Most importantly, she captured how absolutely beautiful our wedding was, with the added bonus of her edgy editing.
So yes, book her, because she's the best!"

"Where do I begin? Tahiry is simply out of this world amazing in her craft! I found Tahiry through instagram when looking for a photographer for my husband and I's wedding. I was immediately drawn to her photos and the intimacy she captures. Tahiry has a way of making you feel like you're not just her client but a friend. We got married on 09/10/2017 in Destin, FL. Irma weekend. I had some stress due to that and also an issue with our makeup vendor. Tahiry went out of her way to check on me prior to the wedding and also offered to help me find an alternative makeup vendor if need be.How amazing is that?!
To add to all of that, our wedding photos are SPECTACULAR!!! Our family members and friends have had friends of theirs telling them that our wedding photos are the most beautiful they have ever seen. We've even had some friends of family reach out for her contact info.
It's been almost a month now and I still go back and look at them at least two to three times a week. Honestly, almost everyday. She is very professional and you can tell she absolutely loves what she does. From the beginning I expressed to Tahiry we would like our photos to be intimate and natural. Nothing cheesy. Totally cool if that's your thing. Just not ours. Oh did she deliver!! It's taking all I have to cover our walls in 8x10's of every photo.
If you live in FL or pretty much anywhere do yourself a favor and hire Tahiry to capture all those special moments for your big day!! One of the BEST decisions we made!!"
Kelly + Andrew
I cannot say enough amazing things about Tahiry! She did our engagement and wedding photos, and honestly I feel so incredibly lucky that she did. She captured the beautiful light and nature in our surroundings as well as our laughter and spirit we had during the process. We had so much fun with her and the pictures are absolutely stunning. Furthermore, we had our sneak peak 3 days after the wedding and the full album only a week after! I couldn't possibly be any happier, Tahiry is THE VERY BEST!

"Tahiry is amazing. From the very beginning she made me feel like a valuable client, she responds to emails very quickly and is extremely accommodating. She got my pictures to me within a week of my wedding and they were fabulous! She even made a couple editing adjustments to my preference within an hour of my request! Her personality is so fun to be around and her work is phenomenal. My husband and I never looked better. Highly recommend!!!"
Caryl + Julian
"Love, love, love Tahiry!!! I didn't have an opportunity to meet her until the day of my wedding as I had a destination wedding in Pensacola Beach. She was taking pictures from the moment she arrived. My only request was to take as many pictures outside with the natural light and beautiful scenery. She got the bride, groom and family pictures done so quickly so it didn't feel like I was missing the reception. The pictures were available within day of the wedding. They are amazing. The reception was so fun and she captured it all! I can't thank her enough for such an amazing job!"
Ashley + Erick
"When I started looking for photographers, I sorted through lots of galleries. Tahiry's work made me stop because her photos had what I was looking for - she captured a person's personality in the photo. I am so glad we met Tahiry! First of all, her professionalism and work ethic is amazing. My husband and I felt comfortable during our photo sessions. She gives just enough direction to help you but allows you to be yourself. After I saw our engagement photos I realized Tahiry is so talented that she can take anything, add some creative flair, and come up with artwork. I had no worries about my wedding photos- I was able to relax and enjoy the day and enjoy the session on the beach because I knew Tahiry could capture how happy we were!
The wedding day goes by so fast! Your photos are what you will look back on and remember how you felt and remember your loved ones. Photography is so important. Tahiry is in contact with you after sessions and keeps you up to date on how long things take. Though she says it can be from 2-6 weeks, she finished our photo galleries much earlier for both the engagement session and the wedding. I can't wait to book her for my family photos and belly pictures when we are pregnant :)"

"What can I say?? Tahiry was fantastic! My husband and I were super nervous in our engagement session, and Tahiry made us feel so comfortable and our pictures turned out fabulous! When it came time for the wedding, we had already developed a rapport which meant our wedding photos were incredible! She was flexible and relaxed throughout the evening which helped even more. Shout out to Taylor, her second shooter, as well! I loved some of her shots.
Thank you so much for helping preserve our memories of our special day! There is no question we would recommend you highly and use your services again!"
