Jeremiah & Rachel Spray + PV Takeover + Day 3

PhotoVision Team

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 3: One of the things we do to stay inspired and avoid burnout is personal work. Both of our journeys into photography started with travel, and telling those stories with a camera. No matter where we are, one of us always has a camera, and often these are our favorite images. It lets us experiment, try new things and get better in our craft. We love making images, and as much as we love having a business that lets us do that every weekend, we want to make images every day that let us fall in love with the process and fun of shooting.

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 3: As much as we love, and look for, epic scenery (which is easy in #Montana!) there’s nothing better than a close and intimate photo. It’s important to be vulnerable and build trust with your subject, so that you can be close when the moment is right. We caught ourselves "playing it safe” when we first started shooting #mediumformat cameras. Maybe because all of a sudden there was a cost involved every time we pressed the shutter, but we noticed our work started to feel “safe and boring.” Now we always remember to get back, get the “safe” shot, and then get close. It makes it easy when you feel crunched for time, but it also ensures you can let magic happen. Some of our favorite images have been made within a 10-minute window of perfect light.

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 3: We love every part of a wedding day, but truth be told, our absolute favorite time is sunset. We love when our clients are up for a few minutes of alone time for some romantic photos! This beautiful couple traveled from Detroit, and their families from all over the country to have their Montana wedding in the mountains, so we celebrated that in a big way! @oliviastevanovski even climbed a rickety fence to stroll through this field. We loved how film captured the glowing light so perfectly! Bonus points: Rachel made that bouquet for the bride!! We love going above and beyond! 💐

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 3: We just have to take a moment to give credit where credit is due. Yes, film is magical, medium format is like butter, but none of that would matter if we didn’t have beautiful things in front of our cameras to photograph. Our business took a huge turn in the right direction when we reached out to fellow creatives and started collaborating. Seeing other people create something they’re passionate about is so inspiring and makes you want to work harder for everyone involved. Flowers are definitely a favorite detail of ours. This stunning bouquet created by @greenwoodevents was the prettiest thing. It completely matched our setting, the dress, the bride and the overall story. We can’t stress enough the importance of working with artists and showing off their work!  As we wrap up our time here with @photovisionprints, we just wanted to say thank you for tuning in!! We hope we’ve inspired some of you to pursue film and to follow your dreams! We offer 1:1 mentorships and workshops if anyone is interested in learning more from us, and if you’d like to continue following us, you can find us at @jeremiahandrachel! Thank you again, and thanks to @photovisionprints for being the world’s best lab! 💗

Jeremiah & Rachel Spray + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 2: So often we hear that film can't handle low light, and while we still shoot digital in some situations, there is something truly magical about a long exposure on film!! This beautiful setting, created by @greenwoodevents at @theresortatpawsup, was just begging for that! We only had a small amount of natural light coming in, so this image was taken on a tripod at 1/8th. Film let the natural light bleed into the image, blending with the candlelight and in turn, made it feel the way it did in real life, which is huge when you're shooting for your clients and vendors!

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 2: Let's be honest, a wedding day can be stressful, both for you and your couples. Even in the midst of that, we always keep in mind what a wedding means, and how special it is for our brides and grooms and their families. No matter what happens on a wedding day, we want to help provide a safe place, and be someone our couples can trust and lean on, and even be one of the best parts of their day—second to actually getting married, of course! 😉

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 2: As photographers, we notice lots of discussion about details vs. moments. On the surface, it can seem that moments are more “authentic" or "real," but one thing we realized getting married ourselves was just how personal details can be. The bouquet, the bride's jewelry, a cuff-link. As much as it can seem that a detail is just an object, from a couple's perspective, that small detail often tells a story, about family, love or a memory that's hard to put into words. We always try to remember this as we photograph a wedding, letting ourselves be open to seeing the whole day from a couple's perspective, and telling their "real" story. Be it moments or details, or even formal family shots, we try to treat each part of the day with the same importance and care.

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 2: In every image you take, you should be in the image. A big thing that sticks out to us after years of shooting and seeing so many images on social media and blogs is how important it is that you are truly putting yourself into your images. No matter the camera/film/lab, if you aren't present in your image, a viewer can feel disconnected. It's a small detail that can be the difference between a good image and a great image. Letting it happen takes time, and lots of shooting, but as you do, it will truly bring your images to a new level, one that’s all your own. For us, we do this with  a combination of pre-visualizing a shoot, giving direction instead of posing, being open to our subjects’ chemistry and living in the moment with them.

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 1: Hi, there! It's @jeremiahandrachel here for a #pvtakeover! We're so excited to share a glimpse into our lives and work and, hopefully, share something inspiring with all of you! Film has been a HUGE part of our story and journey, and we're so thankful for an amazing lab like @photovisionprints to help us along the way! Be sure to follow along  the next few days as we talk about film, photography and working together as husband and wife!

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 1: We were each starting our separate journeys into photography when our paths crossed. The timing was perfect, as we were both in the midst of finding our voices and styles, and working out those things together was exciting and new. We quickly became “Jeremiah and Rachel Photography,” blending our two separate business into one, before we were even engaged. Our friends later told us they thought we were crazy for starting a business together so early in our dating, but we knew there was something special there. Turns out there was! As we were finding our new voice together, film sort of fell into our laps. It started as something fun for personal work, then we realized it's what we had been "missing" all along. It quickly grew into a passion. Film let us focus on our vision, while also giving us the look we both wanted for our work. It helped us create a workflow for wedding days, and gave us a  discipline and approach that affected every part of our business and made us better photographers. We dived into film 5 years ago and have never looked back!! 🎞

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 1: Our story of becoming Jeremiah and Rachel Photography is a unique one. We were both photographers when we met, and soon realized our passions, dreams, and vision were very much in line. Our individual journeys to photography were strangely similar, even though we had no idea each other existed! I (Rachel) was always in love with weddings. I was that 13-year-old girl buying wedding magazines and getting weird looks. I'm definitely a hopeless romantic and a daydreamer (to a fault sometimes!). I realized I wanted to chase after my photography dream full force while I was on an art history trip to Italy my freshman year of college. I couldn't put my camera down the entire time, and I was completely hooked! A year later, I went back to Italy with my oh-so-fancy #CanonRebel and a kit lens. I thought I was the Bee’s Knees with that camera, but I still love those images. I moved from my home in Montana for a while to intern with a wedding photographer in California. I learned so much watching her work a wedding day, and I quickly started shooting weddings myself. That was 7 years ago, and I've never once regretted my decision. It led me to Jeremiah a few years later, and I count my blessings every day! ❤

@jeremiahandrachel Takeover Day 1: Growing up, I (Jeremiah) wanted to be Indiana Jones. Seriously, I had the hat, bag, whip, thought I’d travel the world as an archeologist. Instead, when I was 19, I took a trip to Romania with a family friend. We did volunteer work at an orphanage in Botosani. My only camera at the time was a little 3.1 megapixel #CanonPowerShot. I had no idea that by the end of that trip I would fall in love with photography, the way it let me see people, connect with them and tell stories the way I’d always wanted. As soon as I got back home, I bought a #CanonRebelXT and started shooting whatever anyone would let me and assisting some wonderful photographers in the area at weddings. I learned so much during that time, and a few years later, I met Rachel. We both realized quickly that we made a good team, and within a few months, we were dating and working together. She thought I was a little too obsessed with photography, and told me to get a “hobby.” My reaction to that was to start shooting film, which quickly became something we both loved, and added so much to our work. We want to let photography connect people, and let us see the world as the big magical place that it is.

"This image was taken at my workshop in February and I set up this shot from straight on and while the attendees were grabbing that shot I saw this perspective of Natalia snuggling up to Michael. Natalia is a previous bride of mine and I knew she had that killer eye connection so without interrupting the others shot I just asked her to look up. That stare she has is amazing!" — Nicole Colwell  📷 on Fuji400H through a Contax645 in Virginia!

"My vision for this shoot was oriented around the location. The florist @seventhstem and myself were excited to incorporate elements and colors of the surrounding area to showcase the beauty of springtime in Oregon. The texture of the florals and the unique design of the neckpiece made it such a fun project, and I'm so thankful to have worked with such a creative and willing team!" —Alexandra Grace Photography on Portra 800 through a Pentax645N.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 3:  Chase the light! The sun inspires me—I love bright, golden images. I don’t like working under cloudy skies, to be honest. I’m always seeking better light to please myself and my clients. I love how the light meshes and wraps around this (brave) groom on a ledge. 🌞

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 3:  Don’t let your JPGs grow up to be JPGs! Print your work. My favorite thing about going home is looking at my Nan’s huge photo wall of our family. This is the rich, meaningful experience I want for my clients—to have prints of their images, tangible objects they can connect with and hold, rather than digital images they flip through on a device or store on a digital format that will soon become obsolete. 💜

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 3:  Believe it or not, family portraits have become one of my favorite parts of wedding days. I know, crazy, right? Sure, they can be hectic and you often feel like you’re herding cats, but the payoff is often big. I usually tell jokes and do just about anything to get the reactions I’m looking for, which is always genuine laughter. 😄

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 3:  I hope to leave a legacy of joy. The biggest reward for me is hearing a client say how much they love their images and how much they mean to them. It’s a gratifying feeling to know that I was able to deliver such a meaningful, tangible experience for them. Cheers to that! 🥂

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2:  A B+W photo is timeless. Romantic. And the lack of color allows you to easily pull focus toward what you want your viewer to see. Often for receptions, I choose to do B+W because there is so much happening, color can become distracting. B+W can help make for a more focused and seamless image. 🖤

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2: Movement on film is exciting. 🎉 It’s an experiment for the photographer and enchanting for the viewer. As photographers, it’s a risk. You’ll either get your images back and be in love, or they’ll look awful—which is also exciting! 🙂 Most fine-art photographers often think of an image as a still life, a frozen moment, and I’m excited that so many photographers are now implementing movement into their work. For viewers, you don’t always know what’s happening in a photograph. Movement helps give direction, revealing the story within the frame.

#cassidysvision #pvtakeover @12thtable @nutritionstripped @kodakprofessional

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2:  “What is my purpose? What do I want to be remembered for?” Honestly, I think about these questions all the time, and I have yet to come up with an answer for them. I’ll say this though, the best thing about my job is being surrounded by like-minded individuals. Sometimes, this industry can feel lonely and like you’re going at things alone. No one is an island, and there’s no way we can succeed without leaning on and confiding in each other. I challenge you to seek out people you can encourage and vice versa. A rising tide truly raises all boats.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2:  Too often I find myself forgetting the in-between photographs. The reactions to moments, the bridesmaids peeking in on the first look, the mom crying watching the father-daughter dance. They’re so important and incredibly special. If we’re missing them, then our clients most definitely are. I want to challenge photographers to avoid tunnel vision on the wedding day—slow down for just a moment and look around. What’s behind you could be your (and your client’s) favorite photo from the entire day. ✨

Cassidy Carson + PV Takeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

Hi, all! I’m @cassidycarsonphoto and I’m excited to be hosting a #pvtakeover! 🍾 I’m a destination fine-art film wedding photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee. 

🎞 *The first time I shot a film camera* was in 2006 while attending college at @LouisianaTech. I minored in photography and learned to shoot film on a 35mm Nikon I bought on eBay. 

👯 *My biggest influence* is my friend + fellow photog, @kristinsweeting, from Nashville. She is so good at shooting film in low light and has rebuilt her business after having a baby and taking time off. She was really worried she wasn’t going to be as successful as she was, but she has come back with a vengeance. 

📷 *My favorite tool in my camera bag* is my collapsible lens hood. It’s super cheap and everyone can have one. It saves me from having to use my hand to block the sun to avoid lens flare. 

🌍 *Dream photoshoot* I’ve always wanted to go to Europe and shoot with my Contax645, and this year, my dream came true! My husband @stephenalynch and I spent 3 weeks in Italy + Greece. It was so amazing I didn’t want to leave! 

🎵 *My pump-up song* is the “Hamilton” soundtrack and anything by Drake.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1:  I got into photography because of a friend in college. He needed models for a photography project he was doing on movement. I needed an elective, and the way he talked about his photography course intrigued me, so I signed up. I later minored in photography. Fast forward to graduation, I interned for my old Bible study teacher who was a wedding photographer. I laugh now because I said I’d never shoot weddings, but God obviously had other plans. I worked alongside her for 8 months, learning the ins and outs of the business, before I branched out and shot my first wedding on my own. ⚡

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1:  Behind the lens, I feel confident and in control. I second-guess myself a lot in life, but when I’m holding my camera, I know what to do, and I do it quickly and efficiently. 👌 How do you feel behind the lens? I’d love to hear below.

#cassidysvision #pvtakeover @fujifilm_profilm

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1:  My favorite thing is proving my couples wrong. Let me explain. So often I hear, “We’re so awkward in front of the camera!” I find that’s almost never the case once we get into the swing of shooting. Delivering photos where joy, confidence and intimacy radiate from my subjects is such a thrill. 🤵💕👰

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1:  One of the most important things about detail shots are the human elements. Don’t get me wrong, I love the simplicity of a ring on an invitation suite. However, what really resonates with clients is their ability to insert themselves into your photographs. I always include images of clients holding or wearing the details from a wedding. If a ring is passed on, it’s so special for the gift-giver to see photos of their loved one wearing that ring on their wedding day. 💍
