Sarah Spackman - Western Weddings & Creating Your Personal Brand

December 15, 2020

On this episode of The Mike Cassidy Photography Podcast I have a conversation with Sarah Spackman of Sarah Jessica Photography. Sarah is a wedding photographer, educator, and YouTube creator.

Sarah's love of photography started when she was young after picking up her mom's old digital camera to take family vacation photos. She fell in love with documenting life in an artistic way, and next thing found herself in photography classes in school... then suddenly she was a full time wedding photographer.

Now she is a western wedding specialist, business educator, marketing queen, crazy horse girl, and all around hype-gal.
