I believe in creating a learning experience for my interns that helps them prepare for their own business ventures. It’s not an internship where you carry bags and work on spreadsheets. You will be shooting lots and constantly pushed to your creative max.

The time dedicated to the internship is split between second shooting and coaching sessions. Weddings + sessions typically occur on weekends and are all over NC (sometimes elsewhere). Coaching sessions are spent learning software, workflow, business practices, editing—anything you want to learn that I can teach you. I’m an open book. Coaching sessions are flexible to your schedule but occur in Charlotte, NC.

The ideal candidate would have their own gear (Canon preferred), quasi-local to Charlotte, and can commit for six months. However, above all else, I’m looking for an eager-learner, creative-minded, fun-loving person.

They are insanely talented photographers, so it was a special honor to be asked into their home.  I loved watching Sarah work her magic on pancakes!  She is a true pancake artist!  We also did science experiments, BMX bikes, jumping on the bed, and everyday routines.  Overall, it was a really fun morning!  Here are a few of my favorite moments:charlotte photojournalism familyfrankenstein pancakeshalloween family photoscharlotte family photographerasheville family photographerphotojournalism family photographersfamily photographers in charlotte ncnc lifestyle photographersreal life family photographersfamily photographers ncreal life family photographers charlottecharlote nc family photographerscharlotte familieslifestyle family photographers charlottebook with no wordsreading as a familyphotojournalistic family photographers in charlotteshinsky familymorningwild photographyreal life famililiescharlotte-lifestyle-photographer-22unique family photographers charlottecharlotte lifestyle family photographersindie family photoshalloween family photoscharlotte family photographerscharlotte family portrait photographerscharlotte-lifestyle-photographer-29charlotte-lifestyle-photographer-30unique family photoscharlotte family portraitsasheville lifestyle family photographercharlotte-lifestyle-photographer-34the shinskys


Blaie + Brad’s wedding was one for the books. Blaie envisioned a bohemian wedding with their closest family and friends present.  Blaie is an incredible artist, and Brad is a talented musician, so it was important for their wedding to be creative and fun.  A few of my favorite moments:

>> Blaie getting a tad emotional before the ceremony.  Her maid-of-honor graciously gave her a hug and turned the tears into laughter.  It was a touching moment of their friendship.
>> Blaie and Brad sprinting down the aisle after they were pronounced husband and wife.  Then, Blaie jumping (literally) into his arms.  It was such a happy moment.
>> The father-daughter dance.  You can tell that Blaie and her father have a special relationship, and the way he held her made me teary-eyed.

I have to thank The Sentimentalist for a fabulous job of planning their gorgeous wedding at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center.  And, Amy Osaba created the most beautiful bouquets and decor. Finally, to Abbi for being a rockstar second shooter.  That girl is gold.
