I started my business when I was fifteen years old. It was the summer after my first year of high school and I was brand new to the photography world. Even without a drivers license (I got my business license first!) I was able to build a successful business from the ground up. I went from math tests and English essays to senior sessions and weddings and
photographed my first solo wedding at just 15. I’ve traveled across the country reinvesting in myself by attending workshops and educational conferences to focus on growing my business, and I’m so thrilled to be able to help others grow their businesses too. I’m passionate about teaching others and seeing people take their businesses to the next level!

I offer a limited number of mentoring sessions each year for photographers who are looking for a 1:1 personalized experience custom tailored to them and their needs. These are two hour sessions that dive deep into exactly what you want to accomplish and learn about. Nothing is off limits and it's all about you! These sessions are a time of growth and learning that will leave you feeling confident and with an action plan (and new headshots!) ready to take your business to the next level.
Mentoring sessions are $350 and include 2 hours of one on one time and new headshots.
I offer a limited number of custom styled shoots for photographers who are wanting to build their portfolio and gain more experience in the wedding industry. Together we will come up with your vision and then I will help bring it to life for you to capture! On the day of the shoot I will teach styling, posing, and interacting with clients, as well as lighting and camera settings. This is an all in one mentoring session and is perfect for anyone wanting to grow their skills, portfolio, and experience level.
Styled shoot mentoring sessions are $750 and include a custom styled shoot, all day mentoring, and new headshots!
Before I invested in my photography education, I was just like anyone else. I had the passion and I knew how to use my camera for the most part. I had a fairly good understanding of the business side of things, but did not really know who to make myself stand out and grow my skillset and business. When I launched my photography business, I knew that I needed to find someone to help me understand this crazy photography world.

He has truly helped me level up my business and become as successful as I am today. I have been able to define myself as a photographer. With Reed’s helps I was able to set, achieve and surpass my goals.
I genuinely feel like I am part of his family. He makes you feel comfortable and confident, and his mother Cameron will become your biggest cheerleader too! I cannot thank Reed enough for helping me grow as a photographer and individual!
Investing with Reed was the best decision I made for my business. Not only investing with Reed, but investing early in my education was crucial. If I have any advice to any photographer starting out, that is to invest in YOU and Reed is the best person to help you define your dream and give you the skillset to level up your business.
I had such an amazing learning experience with Reed. I was very impressed with his presentation and overall kindness. Investing in his mentoring session was the best thing I could have done for my business. Because of this hands on experience, the growth in my business has propelled. I could not have asked for a better mentor. Thanks Reed!
