About Rachael & Jared
We are Friday nights at home with a movie, good beer, and good friends kind of people. We have been guilty of making way to many Star Wars references in a single conversation. Jared is definitely the brainy analytical one while I’m the artistic big picture person. But let's be honest we're definitely big ol' derps as well. We love our memes, please send me your dankest memes with your inquiry, we're always looking for that heat.
Mushy love story time. We're high school sweethearts, yeah I know barf. Jared claims that the moment he knew I was special was when I whooped his butt at Halo (the original, yes we’re old) when we first started dating. I think I knew when Jared didn’t run screaming after his first dinner at the Sitter house (we’re a big LOUD family). From there on we grew together through so many milestones and chose to spend our lives together.
I seriously never thought I would shoot weddings & portraits, did the whole BFA in photo and boy is it frowned on in that community. Well I did some second shooting in college to make some money and just fell in love with it. When I graduated, moved away, and started looking for jobs I had the realization that I already knew what I wanted to do and had the skillset. Thus Rachael Bowman Photography was born and the townspeople rejoiced! So Jared figured he would try his hand at photography just in case I ever needed an emergency second shooter, because these things happen. Well turns out he's really great at it so he is now my partner in photography as well as life!
Ok I've rambled on long enough, here's what it comes down to.
