I CANDI Studios … The Beginning
Grace and Jennifer met at the University of Washington (Go DAWGS!) during their undergraduate years. Grace was studying communications and taking all the artsy fartsy classes. Jennifer on the other hand was taking a plethora of science and english classes. Amidst all their differences, photography was something they both had in common. Both quickly became best friends.
After college, Grace and Jennifer did the corporate thing and worked day and night. One random evening, Jennifer called Grace and said, “Hey, you know how we talked about you wanting your own photo studio and I want to start my own business…? Let’s combine the two thoughts and DO IT.” And so they did. (OK, it didn’t happen instantly but you get the gist of it.)
In 2005, Grace and Jennifer opened the doors of their photography studio in Seattle’s Belltown area. The rest is history … in the making.
Why “I CANDI” — what’s in the name?
We spent many nights trying to figure out what the best name for our company would be. Since Grace is the main photographer, we opted for various versions of “Grace,” “Lee,” and “Photography” but decided against it. “Grace Lee” is too common. Just google the “Grace Lee project” if you don’t believe us.
After playing with word combinations, “eye candy” seemed to stick with us. “Eye candy”=candy to the eye; pleasing to the eye — we knew we had our name but wanted to play around with the spelling. And no, it wasn’t to copy Apple.
