Photographing weddings for the past 10 years and shooting around 300 weddings has taught me more than a book or class could ever provide. I've experienced and learned more than I could have imagined about weddings and about myself as a photographer. I've created a style and technique with "non-posing" that gets my clients expressing who they truly are in the most beautiful moments.

 If you're just starting, this is for you! If you want to make your passions into a business, this is for you! If you need inspiration and encouragement to get you to the next level of success and joy as a photographer, the following mentor sessions are for you!


"Mentoring with Teale and Justin was the one of the best decisions I could have made. And it's something I would do again! They gave me clear vision for the direction I wanted my business to go, empowered me to be confident in chasing my dreams, and were so eager to teach me through out the day. Watching them work their magic with the camera, the settings, and their interactions with the couples made all the difference. They answered all my crazy questions and made sure I walked out of there with a thriving goal and business plan. At the end of the day I knew better how to tackle wedding inquiries and keep them better organized, how to naturally interact with my couples, and my favorite- how to relax and let my creativity drive me. This husband and wife team have a unique approach to photography from the first client email to the delivery of the gallery. And it works. They are encouraging, full of life, and have a true desire to see your business grow. I owe where I am as a photographer to them! Thanks Teale and Justin! "- Kelsey Hawkins

"Teale and Justin. Wow. Where do I begin? I mentored with them in early December of 2016. These two God loving, family oriented, gems of people are just absolutely AMAZING! They are so encouraging and so talented and so helpful. I cannot thank them enough for all the love and support they have shown me thus far in my new business. I learned SO much hanging out with them for an entire wedding day, mentoring and shadowing them for 12 hours. There was not a time when asking a question was unacceptable. They encourage you to ask as many questions as you want. Whatever you want whenever you want. If you don't ask a question, they will ask you if you're okay, and it's so comforting to know that they truly do want you to succeed. I encourage every photographer, new or experienced to mentor with them at least once! They also prayed over me at the end of the night and it helped give me hope and faith that my business will do wonders. Here I am a couple months later with a flourishing business and it's all because of these guys! They gave me so much information and I took it and ran! Mentor with them. You won't regret it!"-Xo, Rendy Taylor"

Mentoring with Teale the past couple years is one of the best investments I’ve made in growing my business. I had the opportunity to take her Lightroom class recently & it was no surprise that it also was a total game changer! The class not only gave me more knowledge around how to best use LR & PS, but it also gave me more confidence in my editing process from raw images to final product. Teale's heart for others, willingness to share 10+ years of industry knowledge & her effortless ability to simplify the information in a way that brings it all together— are just a few of the reasons why her mentorships + classes are so great! If you haven’t signed up for one yet— don’t walk, RUN to your computer and contact her! What an incredible experience that you simply cannot miss out on! - Whitney with Whitney Cadavid Photography

"Prior to mentoring with Teale, I was completely self-taught so I was very eager to learn firsthand from a seasoned photographer. I set a goal to do one mentorship/workshop each year to help me grow professionally and gain confidence in my skills. Teale and Justin's love for one another, their family and their love for Christ are the reasons I chose to mentor with them instead of choosing others.  I learned so much in the few hours I sat and talked with her that I knew I was forever changed. I was able to shadow a family session and an amazing wedding in one weekend. It has been one of the best investments I have made for my business. Teale and Justin are THE dynamic duo. They are the real deal. They have so much knowledge in this industry and the fact that they are more than willing to share that with other professionals speaks volumes. I left feeling confident in my skills and editing abilities and excited to book more weddings. My client base has grown immensely and I can hardly wait to sign up for another mentorship or workshop!
