Well… the use of sticky notes is actually pretty natural considering both Jes and Meg (we) have only ever been teachers, and then photographers. Sticky notes help us to stay organized, they bring life and color to our endless “to-do” lists, and then happen to make their way onto over refrigerator, desk, door frame, mirror, dry erase board, and car windshield we can find! But our sticky note fascination didn’t only come from our obsession with staying organized, it also came from our love of making other people smile… whether that be each other, our co-workers, or our loved ones. When we taught in the same school, we would leave sticky notes, reminders, and inspirational quotes on each other’s desk just to remind the other that we were thinking of her and that we stopped in to visit. Although our friendship is sweet, and sometimes makes other people give us looks of bewilderment, our love-sticky-note collection stems from the love we share with spouses. As wedding photographers we like to connect with each of our brides and grooms and be an example of the beautiful adventures love can offer and how we each keep our love alive after years of marriage!
Even though we have been writing and collecting love-sticky-notes with our spouses since the moment we each started dating them, we actually can’t take the credit for sharing the idea with you! In fact, we have to give a shout out to husband and wife photographers, Amy and Jordan Demos. They are amazing wedding photographers and educators who we have learned a TON FROM, and they are both our mentors! We learned about their “Pink Slip Files,” they started on Jordan’s first birthday they celebrated as a couple. Amy cut up tiny pink pieces of paper and wrote “I’ll Never Forget When…” on each one, documenting the moments they shared during their months together. When we learned about this adorable idea, we realized that we had already been doing something similar for years and that we would like to share our story with you!
Instead of tiny pieces of pink paper with memories on them, we have been using sticky notes and letters in journals since the beginning of our relationships and we hope we can inspire our brides and grooms to start a similar tradition. A way to document the forget-me-nots, the little moments, the love notes, the emotions, and the feelings you share together from the very beginning. Our system isn’t quite as neat or tied up in a beautiful vase overflowing with pink, and each of our sticky notes don’t start with the same phrase documenting every memory, but life isn’t pretty and neat. Our relationships won’t always be either. We think the most important thing to do is to just make an effort to show each other you love each other and to have a way to document your accomplishments, learning experiences, and adventures together. The good, bad, and ugly. The nights where you are so close to giving up on your goals and your spouse picks you up off the bathroom floor to your first home together, and beyond. Jes has collected her sticky notes in zip lock bags and journals with tape, staples, glue, and additional stories and memories throughout the tattered pages. Meg on the other hand has collected them in shoe boxes and drawers. Whatever system works for you, we are happy that you are using it.
When it comes to loving your spouse, we are by no means experts. We mess up all the time and we both wish we could be even better lovers, best friends, and wives… but what we do know is that we love with our entire soul and telling your partner how you feel about this is SO IMPORTANT. We want to be role models for our brides and grooms and we are so excited to share our love with them. We are obviously an open book!
So stay tuned for our stories, updates on our sticky notes, and more through the Sticky Note Collection.
