People always ask me how I meet my second shooters and other photographers, which reminds me how much of a blessing it is to have a wonderful SC photography community. I don’t even remember how I came to know Haylie, but I’m sure it was through other mutual friends or our creatives Facebook group!
When Haylie reached out to me in August about doing a mentorship to learn more about film, I couldn’t have been more thrilled! We met at the newly opened and adorable Piecewise Coffee in West Columbia to chat through all the questions Haylie sent me ahead of time, then headed to the riverwalk to practice rolling film and shooting headshots in the beautiful morning light. I think it goes without saying how much I enjoyed this morning and our time together.
Haylie is a fellow wedding photographer based in Charlotte, and from my time with her I can see that she is a natural leader who takes initiative, is truly kind, servant-hearted, joyful, organized, driven and incredibly talented. I’ve already watched her immense growth over the past couple of years, and can’t wait to see all that she accomplishes with her business!
