@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.
