With hopes of relaunching before the birth of my second little one, I searched for a continuing education photography course. I was looking for a course that would be fun, energetic, taught by Someone whose work I admired.

Ariel challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone, create consistency within my business, and to be unapologetic about my value. If you’re looking to “level up” your skill set, someone to hold you accountable weekly, and just a plain ol’ good time, Ariel Perry education is perfect for you. From shadowing some of her top shoots to asking any question that came to mind, I’m forever grateful to have learned from Ari. The growth I’ve seen since our mentorship amazes me daily.


When I needed to truly learn photography, I knew that I needed to do a mentor session with Ariel Perry. Ariel made me feel at ease with her teaching style. The initial anxiety I felt instantly went away once we got started. Ariel was so patient with teaching me about lighting and manual mode. The day started with getting to know what I wanted to accomplish and would would help elevate me and my business. I received hands on experience photographing an actual couple, while taking pictures in various locations and wardrobe styles. These are photos I’ve been able to add to my portfolio.  It’s nothing more rewarding than investing in your craft and let’s just say you will not regret setting up a mentor session with Ariel Perry. Thank you Ariel for everything and helping me become a more confident photographer.
