@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! 💗
