In March of this year, I was so blessed to meet Kristen Camielle when I photographed her best friend, Melissa’s, wedding. After the wedding, Kristen reached out to me about doing a mentor session for her since I would be in Virginia later this year. After going over where she felt she was in her business, where she wanted to be, and what her goals were, we created a plan. We brought on Laurel Elise Events to design a styled shoot that would match Kristen’s branding and her overall aesthetic goal for her business. And the result was magic. If you are on the hunt for a Charlottesville Virginia Wedding Photographer, I’m your gal.
September finally came and the session was just perfect! Kristen and I met up while I was in town and did the one-on-one mentor session education part, then headed off to The Clifton Inn where we photographed the amazing styled shoot that Laurel Elise Events had created (and didn’t she do an absolutely fabulous job?!). We ended the evening with tacos and margaritas and it was just a fabulous day.
Wedding Photographer Mentor Sessions
I truly love to do mentor sessions like these because giving other women practical ways to meet their goals in business is so rewarding. Thank you so much Kristen for trusting me, and for the absolute sweetest review ever!
“Where to even begin!!! I’ve admired Kati’s work for so long now! Since I started college I was dreaming of one day being able to 1. Meet Kati, or 2. Learn from her about shooting film… Well, both of those came true! I hired Kati for a branding & mentoring session in September! From the moment I inquired she was immediately so helpful and so invested in my business and me succeeding…”
“…She had me to create a vision board filled with all the colors and vibes for my ideal brand. When it all came time to pull it all together, Kati did an outstanding job! From the little fine details, to the big ones. We went with Old World Romance with pops of colors! She got me in contact with an incredible wedding planner here in Virginia who helped plan to most beautiful styled shoot!! Literally filled with all my dream colors and vibes for my brand…”
“…Kati had me shooting film & digital for the entire session. I was so scared to shoot film, but she showed me how easy it could be! Needless to say I’ve been shooting regularly now. During our sit down mentoring portion, she showed me how to match film scans to my digital work using anchor images. I never knew that such a small detail could help me grow so much. I was always starting with my digital images and hoping they would (maybe) match my film scans…”
“… She had me set goals for myself for one, 5, and 10 years. And I’m already reaching my one-year goal within a span of two months! Kati showed me the areas in my business I could grow and gave me validation in areas I was doubting my abilities. She truly gave me so much confidence in growing my business and my brand!! I’m so eternally grateful for Kati, and would recommend anyone using her for a mentoring and/or branding session!! If you’re ready to grow your business, or shooting film consistently, then hire her immediately! Seriously, you will NOT be disappointed!! LOVE YOU KATI!!”
