    The Experience

    The Wonder of Santa is a magical Christmas experience that you and your children will never forget. Spending personal time with Santa in a 1-2-1 setting allows your child to experience all that is Christmas in an intimate setting.

    The Studio

    Just like Santa’s workshop in the north pole, the Wonder of Santa experience is located in a dedicated studio space in Charlotte, NC. Our Santa studio is a wonderland of holiday spirit and festive fayre; perfectly set up to capture all that is the Christmas experience.

    What to Bring

    We pride ourselves on making this experience as pleasurable and memorable as possible. Outside of your child’s attendance, followed by your imagination and holiday spirit, we don’t have any other specifics for you to bring. We have all of the appropriate period costumes to maximize your day.


    Your one hour sessions with Santa begins at $279.00, which includes a $100 product credit. This includes all of the session related activities as well as the studio time and support staff.  Additional framed wall portraits, story books, and gift items are available during your ordering and viewing session.

Starting their business shortly after their marriage in 2006, they have been delighting their clients for well over a decade with their talent and expertise of creating beautiful portraits and have now added another exciting level to their work with the launch of The Wonder of Santa in 2017. Ted and Rachel have become well known for their attention to detail, their skill to bring out the best in their subjects, and their ability to make even the most nervous person feel comfortable in front of the camera.

    The idea for The Wonder of Santa was born from a desire Ted and Rachel had to take their photography to new levels and to create a finished product that would not only inspire awe and wonder in their clients, but also instantly become a treasured family heirloom. Inspired by the Christmas art of Norman Rockwell, The Wonder of Santa aims to create something so amazing that it sparks joy, evokes a sense of nostalgia, and brings back the magic of Christmas to the hearts of every person who sees it.”
