My Story

JAMIE SPEER
OWNER, HEAD PHOTOGRAPHER

 

If you've made your way to this page, I'd like to first take a minute to say THANK YOU for showing interest in my photography. Even though more than 10 years has passed since I started 1826 Photographic, I still find it mind-blowing and super-flattering that people like my work. It's not a lack of confidence in my work at all...more like a total disbelief that I got this lucky. Who gets to wake up every day and honestly say that they LOVE what they do and still make a living. I DO. And for that, I thank you.

 

I was born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio, received my BA in Studio Art & New Media from the University of Toledo and chose to come back to my hometown that I love so much. Life has changed dramatically since 2007 when I was fresh out of college and starting my business. Between then and now I've photographed hundreds of weddings, acquired my studio, married the love of my life and am the mommy to two of the sweetest boys in the world, Hugh and Hayes. Life. Is. Good.

 

If you're visiting my website I'm guessing life is pretty good for you, too. Maybe you're recently engaged and planning your dream wedding. Maybe you're going into your senior year of high school or are a parent looking for someone to take your child's senior portraits. Maybe you need headshots for the new job you just landed or the dream job you're seeking. Or maybe you need corporate photos taken so everyone else can see how awesome your business is. Whichever of those applies to you, CONGRATS! Those are all such amazing moments in your life and I can't wait to capture the memories of those moments so they last a lifetime for you!

My Story

LINDSEY LEMONS
ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER

 

Hi! I'm Lindsey, and yes you read that right - my last name really is Lemons ;)

 

I met Jamie in 2016 when I was looking for an internship to complete a college requisite. I was in desperate need of a job with hours and experience and she was in desperate need of some help. She was pregnant with her first son and was on the verge of bed-rest when I stepped in. We met and instantly clicked! So I officially joined 1826 Photographic in 2017 after I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Visual Communications - Commercial Photography. Go Bobcats!!

 

I'm at a interesting point in my career as a wedding photographer, because now I get to be on the other side of my job. My best friend in this whole world asked me to marry him and I said YES! We are planning our dream wedding for 10/10/2020 and can't wait to say our "I Do's"! So if you're currently stressing over planning your very own wedding, I feel you.

 

I just feel so lucky to be at this exciting point in my life both professionally and personally. I can't wait to meet you!!
