Who is Sabrina L. Greene?

North Carolina Elopement Photographer Sabrina L Greene-12

Hi there! I’m Sabrina.

I am a photographer for people who want to capture their story through images but do not believe they can be beautiful in front of the camera.

I’ve been running my business for over five years but have been active in photography and art since 2004.

The best piece of praise I ever received from a client was: “Sabrina is the reason why people always comment that my wedding looked like a ‘fairytale straight out of a storybook.’ What a sincere, lovely, genuine person to work with. She kept our goals and dreams in mind the entire time while adding her artistic flare to each photo. I can’t rave enough about her! She made me feel beautiful.”

I have learned a lot about myself and my art from what others have shared in reviews. I have been described as “artistic,” “easy to work with,” “patient,” “infectious,” “unique and creative,” and “inventive.” These are not words I would have used to describe myself, and as my business has grown, I have had to learn to accept them, which is a journey in and of itself.

Helping people see their own beauty and unique story makes me proud and drives everything I do.

If you are looking for a creative and patient photographer who will help you feel beautiful, I’d love to work with you, too!

I have an immense skill set that I have developed over the years, ranging from studying literature, art, design, and more. Before I decided to step out and create my own business, I made it a point to master skills that I felt I needed to provide the highest quality possible for my clients.

I spent nearly three years studying with an original Photoshop Beta Tester, taught myself graphic design, and spent five years running a custom art framing shop. And I have been obsessed with the art of photography since 2004, when I took my first course in it as an undergrad at Mars Hill University.

I felt that to provide quality, especially for wedding clients, I also needed to master off-camera lighting to produce images in any lighting scenario. That journey began in 2016 when I met my husband, who provided me with the funds to start that part of my journey. In August of 2017, I left my full-time job to enter the world of entrepreneurial bliss.

That all sounded a bit stuffy, didn’t it?

When I’m not photographing clients, I can be found reading and researching traditional fairy and folktales. You should see my ever-growing collection of anthologies of them from around the world.

I also collect the classic cannons of poetry, mythology, and “the greats” that the literature world has deemed should be in any book-nerd’s library. What can I say? I am a sucker for a good story!

It is not uncommon to find me digging into another passion of mine, studying the Southern Appalachians. I love where I live, deep in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge! There is a wealth of things to learn from history, authors, places to visit, and more! Most of my clients come in from out of state, and I adore being able to share my home and insights with them.

At the heart of it, you can often find me spending time with my family and my rescue pup, who is a  Papillion-mix, Pixel.

If you want to know more, here are five things most people don’t know about me:

I’m actually an introvert, an INFJ, in fact. “Shut up! There is no way!” I indeed am, but people never believe me, lol.

I can be wholly sarcastic yet bubbly.

I binge-watch tv-series and refuse to watch them until they are finished or almost finished. I’m still mad at Outlander right now, lol!

I actually enjoy writing and studying the craft. Pair it with classic art from the romantic or impressionistic era, and I feel like a high-born Victorian lady!

Chocolate and raspberries paired together with a cheap bottle of Moscato is a guilty delight worth indulging in once in a while.

Would you like to book a session or get creative and collaborate on a project together?
