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 been working non-stop to grow my business and build my dream 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.

 

I can't wait to meet you and help you show off your business in its best light!

 

 

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!!

 

My degree has definitely prepared me to be able to showcase your business. From product photography to headshots and beyond - I've done it all! I'm 100% certain that I'll be able to make all your photo dreams for your business endeavor come true!

 

 

 

Our Studio

 

Our 2500 square ft studio located in Sandusky, Ohio is fully equipped to handle all of your photographic needs.

Constructed in January of 2020, our brand new facility was custom designed specifically to be a photo studio. From our concrete floors to our 26ft. ceilings, to our large windows for natural light and our extra-wide entrance that is big enough to pull a car through - we spent over a year and a half designing this place for every possible photographic scenario. Even our exterior was built with photos in mind! We have plenty of outdoor shooting capabilities around the building, both in green spaces as well as around the building itself.
