Lauren & TIM FAIR

MEET THE SPEAKERS

We're a husband + wife team with a passion for business, film photography, our old farmhouse, surfing, our lovable dog Oliver, travel, God and each other. While not shooting, you can find Tim playing guitar or fixing up our old farmhouse. You can find Lauren with a good book drinking iced coffee, planning our next trip, or happy at the beach.

 Named one of the top 75 Photographers in the World by BRIDES magazine 2018 and one of the 100 Most Inspiring People in the Wedding Industry by the Knot, we have built our business over the past 8 years to be both highly profitable and one that brings us and our clients joy!  We both have business backgrounds and are so passionate about helping photographers and artists tap into the simple principles of connecting to your dream clients. We can't WAIT to meet you, share meals together, talk over all things business and photography, and create beauty together in France!   

Julie Paisley

I'm Julie! I am a southern girl, wife to my college sweetheart, mama to two cool kiddos, teacher to my fellow photographers, and I deeply love people and Jesus. I am not the typical photographer who was always carrying around a camera as a child. For me, photography just happened. It is my second career, and I guess you could say that it found me.

From Day 1, my goal was to capture what was real, with nothing forced or posed. I want to tell stories. I want you look at my images and feel something. I want to connect to my clients, and I want to be your friend. Oh, and I do hug everyone - just giving you fair warning. Overall, I am a pretty happy and upbeat person, and yes, I'm that annoying morning person. Life is pretty amazing! I LOVE my job. I LOVE my clients. God is good, and I am so blessed.

Sara Russell

Founder + Curator, Wedding Sparrow

I’m driven by the beauty of editorial wedding photography shot on film, and after realising in 2011 that there wasn’t another blog out there curating what I wanted to see, I created one myself on good old Wordpress. Fast forward 7 years and it’s a 6 (wom)an team based all over the world with access to almost 2 million blog readers and 1/2 a million + social followers! I’m inspired by simplicity, beauty, originality and the complexity of nature, and you can read more about my founder story in the Industry category and what makes me tick.

Wedding Sparrow has already won five industry awards since launching and I couldn’t be more proud. Striving to lead the industry towards natural light and timeless beauty, I love to travel the world meeting like­-minded artisans who create beauty in the wedding world for Wedding Sparrow readers.
