Mentoring & Workshops for Photographers


I love sharing my heart and gifts of knowledge with other photographers. I offer group workshops and individual mentoring sessions. I can't wait to connect with you.

Mentoring sessions are a perfect option for photographers who prefer a more intimate, hands-on approach to learning. Some feel overwhelmed in a group setting or may opt for a personalized session in order to focus on their own business. I adore mentoring sessions for that reason - focusing on an individual with their sole needs, and determining what would better their business. During these sessions I'm an open book and will share tips, techniques, and all of my recommendations for growing as an artist and entrepreneur.

Whether you are looking to gain experience with a film camera, wanting to shoot some newer luxury content, or just feeling uninspired, editorials are one of the best ways to combat multiple frustrations within your own business. Each editorial I create for mentees is custom designed for their business and market, consisting of either an engagement session, bridal shoot, or full wedding. Your editorial will be created just for you from the ground up - starting with an inspiration board and resulting in a beautiful shoot that will hopefully leave you feeling inspired and refreshed. 

Shoots include incredible designer outfits, lush florals, beautiful locations, and hand-selected details that you will be excited to include in your portfolio. All mentees are encouraged to submit their editorials for publication.

"Sophie’s workshop was nothing short of amazing. The editorial photoshoot were styled to perfection and, we had the opportunity to collaborate with the industry's top vendors."


I came home with so many stunning images for my portfolio that look like they're straight out of a magazine. Sophie was an open book for the duration of the workshop; she shared what works for her business, what doesn't, and was full of insider tips. It felt like no questions were off limits. We had time for individual feedback, and she was so patient and kind in helping me shoot film for the first time. I'd highly recommend attending one of her workshops!

"If you want to market higher end weddings, she'll be a wonderful teacher and mentor."


Sophie's workshop was an amazing experience! The styled shoots were out of this world. Each shoot was very different from each other, and we got the opportunity to collaborate with top vendors. She gave us a lot of insider tips, and she dedicated each of us feedback time to talk about our businesses and portfolio. I could tell that she's the sort of person who really wants people to grow and is willing to share her knowledge in an honest way. No questions were off limits, and she emanates such passion for her work that it's contagious.

"This workshop has exponentially helped me market to higher end brides and create a more luxurious and beautiful brand."


Sophie put together an incredible team of industry professionals that brought such expertise and beauty to our shoot. Sophie spared no expense hiring incredible models and creating beautiful content for the attendees. We had education and flatlay styling each morning, followed by and afternoon shoot in NYC. We were able to ask as many questions as we wanted - Sophie was an open book. She was also on-hand during the shoots to provide tactical information on how to meter film and pose our subjects.

I love teaching and learning, and workshops are some of my absolute favorite things to be involved in. My workshops are intimate (8 - 12) people, and involve classroom time, styled editorial shoots, and guest speakers - to hopefully leave you feeling inspired & refreshed.

Speaking Engagements

education for wedding professionals

I'm an editorial and wedding photographer based in New York City though I have grown my business to serve a thriving destination wedding clientele. After beginning my photography career in the fashion industry, I expanded into shooting for brands, publications, and clients with a fashion-forward aesthetic. As an avid lover of film photography, my work has a feminine, romantic quality that feels drawn from history.
