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 11 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 over 100 weddings, acquired my studio, married the love of my life and am the mommy of the sweetest boy in the world, Hugh David Speer. 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!

As a recent college grad, I'm so excited to start on the path towards my career as a wedding photographer and I'm so excited to be starting that path here at 1826 Photographic with Jamie! I also am from the Sandusky area and have just graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications - Commercial Photography (Class of 2017).

In college, I learned the technical aspects of photography, but I also learned how to tell stories and convey messages through my images. I know the importance of proper lighting for those family portraits and I also know the importance of capturing those special candid moments. That is exactly what I hope to do here at 1826 while I'm capturing YOUR special day!
