“Margo was scouting the perfect shots and capturing every priceless moment…Margo was awesome, every picture was meaningful and perfectly composed. We knew they would look awesome, but were so absolutely blown away once they arrived shortly after the wedding. My Wife and I were in awe of the work Margo was able to do!” ~ Jared and Jennifer Stoutman, wedmates

Spear, is a nationally renowned photographer with works in the Guggenheim and also the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Another uncle, his brother, is a professor of journalism and photography at the University of Richmond. Her grandparents were lifelong newspaper editors, journalism photographers and writers.
