We’re The Genie VA!
A diverse team ranging from cat-loving folks, organization nerds, and former wedding pros who love supporting wedding photographers with admin stuff so they can focus on their passion.
We’re here to get you back to the days when running a photography business was just about that: photography and serving your people.
And while you never needed assistants before, you’ve realized you’re no longer at a level where you can do this on your own.
We’re wedding photographer virtual assistants who understand that taking your business to the next level means stepping out of the day-to-day so you’re free to focus on the big picture.
As a former wedding coordinator, I helped couples run one of the greatest days of their life. Now, I help wedding photographers accomplish one of the greatest challenges of their lives: managing their business!

After opening up to other wedding professionals, I realized I wasn’t the only one.
Every day was a sprint. And that’s when I realized just how difficult being a wedding professional can be.
