Greg is an editorial style Family and Senior Portrait photographer based in Buchanan, Tennessee - serving the entire Mid-South.
He loves the connection between people, and passionate about capturing the most important moments in their life. Turning these moments into tangible wall art for families to enjoy for years to come is his inspiration.

"My clients want lasting memories and to look back and know they worked with a professional who helped make those happen." I do just that!
SHOULD I HAVE MY PORTRAIT SESSION IN STUDIO OR ON LOCATION?
ON LOCATION / ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS : I have extensive experience (and a LOT of genuine LOVE for) finding the great compositions and light to make the most of almost ANY location, so if you have a connection to a certain area or feel (urban, rural, mountain, your home, etc.) let’s discuss and make it happen! Some of my all time favorite shots have things like messy parking lots or busy streets in the background, so really, we can make most any location work! Permit fees may apply for certain locations which require liability insurance and photographer permits}.
IN STUDIO : My specialty is truly in setting you in a vibrant natural or urban environment, but if you prefer a more controlled setting, I do have access to natural light studios. This requires advance booking and may incur additional studio fees.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR / BRING TO MY PHOTO SESSION?
Wear clothes that compliment your skin tone. BRING OPTIONS! If you are an actor or model getting head shots, style your clothing, hair and makeup as you would for an audition. Think about fabric texture, complimenting your natural coloring and limit jewelry as it can be distracting. Think about style choices that support your look or brand. Generally, simple necklines are preferable, big prints tend to be distracting, and color photographs better in a headshot (tends to bring out your features such as eyes, hair, skin tone) than solid solid black or white... unless we have discussed a specific theme for your shoot. If you are an actor or model creating head shots for an agent, its a great idea to check with your agent to see if they have specific requests regarding styling.
HOW SHOULD MY FAMILY DRESS FOR OUR SHOOT?
Families look best when you can all agree on a few tones (two primary and one accent, for example) and then everyone finds something they love to fit this theme. No need to be too matchy, but coordinating simply so everyone is happy and not clashing will make a HUGE difference in the cohesion of the final photographs. If you are planning photos for a space in your home, it is great to keep this in mind while making decisions regarding palette. If you need ideas, check out a Pinterest board for inspiration!
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?
Your session is booked with a non-refundable session retainer. I recognize that everyone's time is valuable, and life can be crazy! Please understand that scheduling a photo shoot often involves coordinating multiple people's calendars (hair & makeup artists, photo assistants, etc.), as well as scheduled photography permits or payments to book specific time in studios, etc. If we need to reschedule due to sickness or inclement weather, your booking retainer/deposit IS transferable. For all other rescheduling requests, please note that with 72 hours notice, your session retainer may be transferred once to a new session booking time/date. After the first rescheduling, or if you'd like to reschedule within 72 hours of your session, please note that there is a $150 REBOOKING FEE to schedule a new session date and time.
DO YOU HAVE A CLIENT REFERRAL PROGRAM?
YES!! There is no greater compliment than when a happy client sends a referral! And I love to thank my referrals! I now offer a $50 studio credit for every paying referral client you send our way... please tell your friend to mention how they found me!
