Hi, I am Yokie.


I am a Tampa Based photographer specializing in Event, Wedding, and Portrait Photography (I love Kids & Pets). I consider myself a skincare guru as I am also a licensed esthetician with a spa right next door to my photography studio. I was born in Virginia, but I don't know much about the state lol - my dad was in the military and we moved to Florida when I was 2.


I absolutely love photography and it's the reason I decided to start my own business at 21, while attending USF. After taking a photography class I quickly learned the lack of knowledge other "professional" photographers lacked when capturing melanated skin. Photography turn from a hobby to a passion and I am truly grateful I have it as a career along side my esthetics business.

(Sorry ladies I can't do makeup lol - I stay in my lane.)

It's more than just a photo. I pride myself in providing an unforgettable experience that captures memories and moments that can't be replicated.

Our clients know once you enter my empire - you are apart of my royal family!

I am looking forward to working with you!

“I did my 40th photoshoot with Empire Studio and it was amazing! The original shoot was supposed to be outdoors but due to bad weather we moved it to the studio. She was so accommodating and is super sweet! Very professional and pleasant to work with! Can’t wait for my next shoot in February!”
