Photoshoot Sessions

Personal Branding

Attract more clients with trusted, professional, and consistent brand images. The Personal Branding session will allow you to present clear and consistent brand images that communicate who you are and what you do to your ideal client.

Whether you’re just starting that business that you’ve dreamed of or updating your professional headshot and marketing material, the personal branding photoshoot is perfect for you.

Family & Couples

Let’s create beautiful, fun, and heartfelt images for you to share with your friends and family for generations.

The family portrait session is an incredible photography experience that highlights relationships including mother and daughter, best friends, engagements, families and the custom Legacy Portrait.

Lifestyle & Portrait

Celebrate yourself by capturing where you are in your life journey. Feel confident in who you are and where you’re going. Appreciate the sweat you left at the gym and how great you feel about it. Or just play dress up to celebrate another birthday or anniversary.


So many times you know that you need new branding and marketing material but inexperience and the scramble to get them done keeps you from getting what you truly need.

Allow me to help with that…

Here are some of the things I’ve learned to be conscious of in preparing for your photo shoot to make sure you get what you need and are ready to use your images to project your brand and brand values to the world.


If you are an author or speaker, musician or singer, lawyer, doctor, coach or athlete, you should have a photoshoot consistent with your brand.

Personal Branding Photography is the best approach to solidifying your image for professional use.

This isn’t just a headshot. These sessions are meant to provide you with your headshot and capture your personality and brand consistency so you can attract the perfect client.

The Lifestyle Photography Experience is the ideal way to celebrate and memorialize those special moments and milestones in life. Treat yourself to the experience that all of your favorite celebrities have during their photoshoots; not just someone with a camera in the park.


Rashad Pleasant is a 17 year veteran of the United States Air Force and has served as an award-winning professional photographer for the last 7 years. Rashad started with photography in 2007 and has traveled the globe taking photos in 5 countries and 24 of our great United States. He has found both success and recognition having won a number of awards and worked with several prestigious organizations.

  • I was the Maid of Honor at a friends wedding and I helped communicate with Rashad and helped make sure the day ran smoothly for my friend. Rashad made my job extremely easy. He anticipated what needed to be done and knew exactly how to respond which allowed me to be more a part of my girlfriends wedding than a worker at it. It was so much more than just having a photographer too. It felt like Rashad was all of our best friend. He was courteous and professional and it really seemed like nothing bothered him even when things didn't go according to the plan. Of course the pictures came out amazing! I recommend him to all of my friends now.

  • Rashad was not only professional and courteous, his creativity and attentiveness to the sensitivity of our wedding was impressive. He took time before the wedding to give us calming advice and insight and I have to say, everything he said was true. If I could do it all over again, I would want Rashad there every time.

  • As a witness to Rashad's work and also his professionalism, I have gladly recommended him to numerous friends for his services. Check out the website, the results speak for themselves! He has the ability to make his subjects feel like old friends, and the product is amazing. The only thing better than lasting memories are to have pictures that show them in their most glorious light. Thanks RP for sharing your gift and for leaving clients that are smiling way after your work is done.

He knows what he's doing when directing and shooting photos and the developed photos more than speak for themselves, they also speak of Rashad's skill and artistry... His ability to draw out the theme of the wedding and place it into the actual photo is amazing... If you want the best of the best, contact Rashad!!

  • Rashad was amazing. He's young,energetic, full of life, and experienced. My wedding planner could have not recommended a better photographer. Rashad took his time to meet with my husband and I as we were planning and he followed up with us throughout the entire process. Rashad made us feel comfortable and special. I remember at my wedding, my bridal party and I were taking pictures outside and I wanted to sit down on a chair, keep in mind I had a pure white dress on. Rashad took his suit jacket off and placed it on the chair so that my wedding dress would not get dirty while I was sitting.In addition, Rashad's work is amazing and I would recommend him to any bride and groom who's looking for some one out of the box, young, professional, experienced, amazing, trustworthy, and inexpensive. Trust me Rashad Pleasant's work is amazing. The Best In Town!

  • We had an incredible wedding day we had! It came and went so quickly! Good thing we have such vivid memories that we can re-live over and over through the photos taken by Rashad. He not only fulfilled all of our requests for picture styles, he also threw in his own little creative spin on it! He has an INCREDIBLE "eye" and an amazing way with angles. Very true -to -life pics that my husband and I can enjoy and share with those we love for the rest of our lives. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

  • I have been watching Rashad's photography work over the past few years and it is obvious, that he is a skilled photographer and artist. I had the opportunity to attend one of my friend's wedding and Rashad was the photographer. As I watched him He was calm, he directed everyone with skill and always knew how to put a smile on the kids faces. I've seen him in action, talked with him, checked out his webpage and seen the final product of his work and I would recommend him to anyone who wants professional work at an affordable price!
