Justin Driscoll

Above all… I strive to capture raw expression and movement through my work. I have had a camera in my hand since a very early age and began tinkering with Photoshop / Illustrator in the late 90’s and have refined my skills ever since, continuously evolving.

My graphic design skill assembled with my love of photography is where I found my niche. In 2009 my vision came full circle when I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BSBA – Business Administration / Major in Marketing.

Since then, my work has been featured in several galleries, online and in print through many publications. I love what I do, take pride in my work. I look forward to working with you!!

Sheila Mraz Photography

Welcome to Sheila Mraz Photography. I’m so glad you’ve found me! To put it simply, I adore people.  I am that type of person who is undoubtedly a people-person.  You know, the one who starts a conversation with strangers in the elevator and the one you will find inviting others on to the dance floor with no music.  Yep, this is me and this is why I have chosen photography.  To be completely honest, I think that photography has chosen me. I find that life is too exciting to just let it go by without being noticed, documented or celebrated. I feel a calling to be behind the lens and create images of real life.  I find that through photography I am able to slow down time and experience the sacred still moments.  I specialize in creating images of laughter, joy and pure happiness.  Images that you will cherish as an heirloom and you will want to revisit to bring a smile to your face or an occasional tear.

While we have a large and lovely property, we have concluded that we prefer to keep our gatherings at a maximum of 125 people. Our goal is to give you the highest quality experience we can and we really feel limiting the gathering size allows us to serve you in the way we think you would like to be served. We of course did not build our facility with huge gatherings in mind and our infrastructure limits us. Even if your party is larger than our maximum, we would still love to show you around if you're in the area. Feel free to give me a call and I would love to show you around. We just might fit a future event!
