Jackie M - Slaughter Pen Farm http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2017/6/jackie-m---slaughter-pen-farm Last week my full time job had me in Richmond VA, so I thought I should have a little bit of fun while I was there. I got in touch with my absolutely beautiful friend Jackie and we quickly put together this shoot. With a very short time to come up with wardrobe and a location she put it all together, then just before the shoot her wallet was stolen. Through it all she was amazing, and so easy to work with. I adore this young woman so much, and can't wait to work with her again soon.

Bree C - Grayson Lake http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2017/5/bree-c---grayson-lake


I finally got to meet up and work with the beautiful Bree. We've been trying to find time with our busy schedules to do a shoot and it worked out this week. This young lady is not just stunningly beautiful, but she has a strength inside her with a great sense of humor to match. We had so much fun shooting that even with the storm rolling in I had her jumping for joy in the rain. Can't wait to work with her again!!

Brittany M – Cupcakes! http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2017/1/Brittany-M-Cupcakes

Wow, what can I say about Brittany.. This young woman as been through a lot, but some how keeps her head above water and is trying to do something amazing with her life. We met through a mutual friend, and I knew I had to work with her. After talking to her for a while, it was clear she was like most girls now, and has issues with her body, but she put her trust in me to produce beautiful images and we did just that. These turned out better than I could have ever hope for, and I hope she realizes that she is a true bombshell!

Kimberly A – First Time http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2017/1/Kimberly-A-First-Time

So when I asked Kim to do a shoot, her immediate answer was yes! Her outgoing personality and beauty turned into some amazing images. I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do!

Ashley S – First Time http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2017/1/Ashley-S-First-Time

I had the chance to work with an amazing friend of mine. It took me a few months, with the help of one of her friends to convince her that she should do the shoot. The images are amazing, but the best part was the reaction of her seeing them. I believe her words were “Damn! I am beautiful”, that’s all a photographer can ask for when delivering images to a client. Check out the gallery!

Brianna D – Lingerie http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/12/Brianna-D-Lingerie

I had the chance to work with my amazing friend Bree for the first time. Just like clockwork, she gave me the “I hate pictures of myself” and every other line I’ve heard a million times. In the end, she loved them and everyone that’s seen them has loved them too. Can’t wait to work with her again, we have some crazy ideas brewing.

Carrie Z at the Memorial Arch/Ritter Park http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/8/Carrie-Z-at-the-Memorial-Arch/Ritter-Park

I always have a good time working with new models. Carrie was a natural, and it shows in the images. We had a good time chatting while shooting, it was like neither of us really had to put forth any effort. I really hope I get the chance to work with her again. Enjoy the amazing images we made today!

Dance Event pictures http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/8/Dance-Event-pictures Hi Dance Family, I want to start off by saying how much I miss you guys and I really wish I could make it to an event to see everyone. My full time job now keeps me busy, and money is super tight so traveling is at a bare minimum. The couple years I was able to work events, were probably some of the best in my life and it’s all because of you guys.

I have fully migrated to the new gallery system, and will no longer be offering individual picture sales from Dance Events. I still have all of them archived so if you decide you want a specific event you can get them. I am selling the whole event on a USB drive for $75, and that covers shipping too. All you need to do to order one is send me an email, or message with which event and the address to ship it to and I’ll send you an invoice through paypal for payment.

I hope everyone is doing well, and I really hope to see you all soon.

Meike E – Tiger Bay State Park http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/6/Meike-E-Tiger-Bay-State-Park

The final gallery from my Florida sessions is of the beautiful Meike. She went into this shoot a little nervous and thinking she wouldn't be a good model. As you can see by the time the nerves went away she’s amazing. She’s, fun, witty and very easy to work with. She’s already asked for another session as soon as I can get back to FL. Hope you all enjoy the images!

Katy S – Seminole State Forest http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/6/Katy-S-Seminole-State-Forest

What can I say about Katy that I haven’t said before.. She’s an amazing, strong young woman whom you can’t help but love. She’s always a joy to work with, but I also cherish the time we just get to hang out and talk. Can’t wait to see, and work with her again. Check out our latest shoot!

Dani F – Decades http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2016/6/Dani-F-Decades

I get the chance to shoot this amazing young lady again in just over a week. She's such a natural when it comes to modeling and always a joy to work with. The concept behind this shoot was to explore the styles of different decades. We eventually plan on hitting a few more, but this set includes the 50's and the 70's. 

Please show Dani some love and visit her facebook page and give her a like! Dani Fleming – Modeling Page

I just realized that I hadn’t posted these to my website yet. My friends Sara and Willis allowed me to take some shots of them for their engagement, and also of their family. Wish them all the luck, and hope they have a great future!

Dani F - Vampires http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2015/10/dani-f---vampires

I spent a few days in Florida in October and had the chance to work with one of my favorite models. Dani is so easy to work with, she is just a natural and such a pleasure to shoot. She wanted to do a Halloween themed shoot, where she gave her spin on the Vampire. We found a great location in Casadega to work, and after learning the history of the area I think it was really fitting. I hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed shooting them.

Logan E - Country Girl http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2015/8/logan-e---country-girl

Logan is a firecracker of a country girl, and her attitude shows in this shoot. Halfway through this shoot the skies opened up and decided to unleash an insane thunderstorm. We took shelter in one of the barns, but that didn’t stop us from shooting some smokin’ hot rain shots.

Innocent vs Edgy http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2015/8/innocent-vs-edgy

Talk about a fun concept shoot. Dani and Katy have polarizing styles and that is what we played on for this shoot. Dani has a very edgy style, while Katy is more of the innocent southern girl.

Brandi G - Under the Pier http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2015/5/brandi-g---under-the-pier

I met Brandi at one of the line dance events I was working, and we quickly became friends. I always bugged her about doing some pictures with me, and finally at an event in Myrtle Beach she agreed. The weather wasn’t the best so we decided to shoot under the pier, and I think the pictures turned out great!

Katy S - Knee Socks http://www.epicgear-photography.com/blog/2015/5/katy-s---knee-socks

Awh sweet Katy.. this girl is so full of joy. I won’t go into her whole story lets just say we almost lost her, but through her strength and the love of a huge dance family she’s doing amazing. I didn't know her before her accident, but I’m glad I know her now. She’s such an inspiration when it comes to being a fighter and not giving up!
