Life is unpredictable.. however this WAS set in motion over a decade ago.
10 years was the set goal to accomplish all the tasks.. develop a leading wedding photography studio, make ourselves DIFFERENT, have fun, see our brand across National & local editorial print, National TV.. and just be OURSELVES! In a decade, we played on the runways, flew internationally to the most gorgeous places, captured 800 weddings… and in the midst of living a crazy life ,we had 3 awesome boys!
Nearly every couple I ever met with heard me say that I’d never shoot weddings without Jared…and I never will. We are a team. I married my best friend, partner in crime.. I adore him, respect him, and am amazed at his creative biz skills. We developed a brand that was “us” not just me.. and now “us” includes 5 crazy Spencer’s! Quinn, Tripp, and Wyatt have watched us load our gear and leave the house like ninjas for years..every weekend. Now, after a decade, our weekends belong to them and our family.
We’ve captured amazing memories.. incredible events.. met wonderful couples and families.. but the BEST thing I will take away from this entire stressfully beautiful industry are the friends I’ve made through building relationships with our clients. There were never just contracts and shoots.. I was invested emotionally in every story and how they came together visually.. I got sucked into loving my brides.. and from this I take away amazing friends & some I consider family! That truly is the best thing I’ve accomplished in 10+ years.. not the covers or editorial, features, or interviews..
So yes.. it is true for those who never connected it all.. we retired December ’14 and as of last night 9/6/15 we captured our last wedding. Thank you for all the amazing years and love for what we created!!
