{What our past interns have to say}

{Leanna Hull, summer 2010}

“My summer internship with Memory Montage was an eye-opening and thrilling experience. I had the opportunity to see photography from not only the creative side but the important business components of running a reliable, organized and committed to the finished product type of business. Amy and Tavis were not only amazing bosses, but mentors and friends as well. Learning about the proper equipment, lighting tricks and editing styles was just scratching the surface of their creative professionalism. They both bring so much to the table in knowledge and experience. The care they pour into their work and the patience they had while teaching me was refreshing every day. Aspects like surveying the event venue, capturing the personalities of the couple and keeping a positive attitude throughout the day are what make Memory Montage so personal and unique. I am so thankful of the time I spent interning under Amy and Tavis Guild, and walked away far more inspired and prepared for my future in photography than when I came.”

{Haley Holmes, summer 2009} 

"During the summer of 2009 I did an internship with Tavis and Amy, and learned more than I ever thought I could know about photography. Over the course of the summer I got to become familiar with equipment that I had never used before, and learn through hands-on experience how to be intentional with my shots using the the manual settings on the camera. I really came to understand the flow of a wedding day, and taking on responsibilities of the job. From watching, listening, and observing the way Tavis and Amy operate, I was able to pick up on their style, and the things they do to get the most they can out of their pictures. My overall experience was great, and so beneficial to me in expanding my knowledge in photography. It was a fun and exciting way for me to get exactly the kind of experience I needed to help me grow as a photographer!" Pin It Now!
