To me photography is so much more than a transaction and a few emails we exchange before your special day, it is about relationships. I could go on and on and tell you what photography means to me and how I see/frame the world through my lens but at the end of the day this is all about YOU and your story.

You are the reason I do what I do, your story, as unique as it is the reason I chose to become a

photographer. I am here to help you create memories you will cherish forever. There is such beauty to be found in these raw moments and my goal is to capture them in a way that will let you experience those same emotions every time you look at your photos.

Questions

How do we pick the best outfits and location?

What if we are both camera shy and awkward?

We can work on that together!  We love when clients are open to input when picking their outfits and locations. Don't stress we got ya!

Not everyone is used to being in front of a camera, but that's why I'm here. I will help you loosen up and guide you through the whole process. I'll give you prompts and plenty of room to be yourselves.

Can I swap my engagement session with something else?

How can I book you for my wedding?

Whatever works for you! A lot of our couples swap theirs for a bridal session, holiday session, day after session or if you are not local it can be applied as a discount toward travel fees.

First things first, please send us an inquire on our contact form or send us an email at theanchorstudio@outlook.com. If your date is available we will schedule a consultation to meet with you and talk more about wedding details. Once contract is signed I ask for a 40% deposit and we start planning!

Do you deliver RAW files?

Why do you recommend an engagement session?

We believe that an engagement session helps us get to know each other a little better which will help you feel more comfortable in front of the camera which will help you feel more comfortable being in front of the camera. This releases a lot of the pressure that some people feel on their big day.

I do not deliver any RAW files to my clients. I am hired for my editing style and because of that I do not deliver unfinished products.

Do you travel?

How soon will I get my photos?

Weddings: Industry standard is 6 weeks, but we will do our best to deliver your photos earlier than that.

Mini Sessions & Portrait Sessions: typical delivery is about 2 weeks.

You will receive a password protected online gallery via email from Pic-Time with High-Res and Web-size images for download. It is recommend for you to DOWNLOAD all your images as Pic-Time as my contract does not guarantee photos after a year.

Testimonials

"Thais was AMAZING!!! From the moment I saw her portfolio, I was sold. But getting to know her as a person was also incredible. She is kind, easy-going and easy to work with, and she made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Every person at my wedding was impressed with her work that day, and when we saw all the photos we were blown away. You can tell how much effort and care she puts into every single photograph and every detail, making sure to capture those special moments in a way that you can hold onto forever. We hope to work with Thais again in the future, and we strongly recommend her!"

Thais is an incredible photographer and so easy to work with. It was almost like she read my mind ,when I look back on our photos! She captured everything I envisioned and more!!!!"

Ashley & Matthew

North Carolina, Usa

"I LOVE Thais. She is all around an amazing person and photographer. She was very hands on from the day I reached out to her. She was always willing to help, give ideas and make things easier for me for our engagement and wedding. She always went above and beyond in every aspect of job. Beside from her personality, her work is stunning. She is so easy to work with and always made me feel comfortable. I wouldn't pick anyone else for my photography needs."

"I fell in love with The Anchor Studio after viewing the website and I knew her style and eye perfectly matched the vision I had for our pictures. Thais responded to my inquiry so promptly and with such warm energy, I was so excited. She was such a kind, funny, easy going person to work with, and made my fiancé and I feel so relaxed and attractive despite us being new to being in front of a camera. I got my gallery back earlier than I anticipated, and our photos were BREATHTAKING. She blew it out of the park. My fiancé and I both got very emotional seeing how lovingly she captured our love and friendship. She has such a unique, elegant style. What an awesome experience. We cannot wait to have her by our side for our wedding day, and everything beyond. THANK YOU THAIS!!"
