Hello & Welcome

I’m Lindsey, a twenty something natural light portrait and wedding photographer!

When entering that time of college decisions, I kept telling myself (and anyone who would listen), that I never wanted to run my own business so college was a priority. Oh how God always has a bigger plan! After a few months of classes, I picked up my camera with a new dream of photographing weddings and owning a business. 

Photographing weddings isn’t a job that I take lightly! It’s such an honor that each and every couple that inquires has thought of me being a part of their day. I strive to be a story-teller, capturing the traditional portraits and the small in-between moments, because it's all important.

Other than having a mild obsession with all things wedding, I have a serious obsession with cats, anything peanut butter, home design (a Joanna Gaines wannabe over here), fuzzy blankets, pumpkin candles, plants, and good books. I also think of all my clients as friends. I’ll hug you at the beginning and end of your engagement session (and wedding day) like I’ve known you forever. 

About me, the artist!

Sweet words from my couples

"THE PHOTOS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, CAPTURING THE EMOTION PERFECTLY. Lindsey has a personality that makes you feel comfortable and taken care of. We were treated more like friends than clients."
-Kaitlyn & Jonathan

Kitties are my favorite animal! So, yeah I guess you could call me the crazy cat lady. I adopted Zeus (otherwise known as Zeusy because SHE is a GIRL - fun story, ask me about it!) this past summer and she's the most interesting cat. Zeus has such a big personality. She can't go to bed without you and a fuzzy blanket, she wears a different collar every day of the week, and she's incredibly talkative. She also loves the camera!

My first favorite: ZEUSY!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

If I wouldn't have gone to school for Art Business, I would have gone for Interior Design. I've always been passionate about design and love decorating! AKA, I wanna be Joanna Gaines and I could live in Target. My Pinterest board is loaded with ideas for future homes, and I rearrange and go through everything in my room (including clothes) every few months. I'm a firm believer in the idea that physical clutter is mental clutter, and I work best in a clean open space! 
Also, if you're looking right...I also love movies (aka To all the Boys!)

My second favorite: DESIGN!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Everyone kind of goes through a stage of being obsessed with tattoos? Right? Well, I never thought I would actually get one. But, I have two (and a third one planned!). They’re not large or extremely visible. But, they do have significant meaning to me. I love tattoos for the fact that they’re a visible and permanent representation of what you love. I spent a lot of time deciding on my tattoos and I love that they tell a small detail of me!

My third favorite: TATTOOS!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

I LOVE flowers! My favorite time of the year is spring and summer, because the flowers are blooming and everything is coming to life again! Each spring we travel to Lancaster to gather new plants and I spend a few days planting and placing beautiful new flowers on our property. I'm also that person who grabs a fresh bouquet from the floral department in Giant each week, because what's better than waking up and coming home to fresh flowers in your room?

My fourth favorite: FLOWERS!

Something I love to do and wish I was able to do more is travel. There are so many places in the world I want to see and we only have this one lifetime here on Earth to do so! I'm now officially offering destination wedding packages, so if you also love to travel and are planning a destination wedding, I'd love to chat!
Some places I'd love to see are Hawaii, Paris, Rio, Rome...and any island where it's warm!

THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE

Step 1: Inquiring

If you're scrolling around and like my style of photography, send me an email! There's a form at the bottom of this page. Let me know your names, your wedding dates, how you met - anything! Once I receive your message, I'll get back to you with an investment guide for you to read through!

Are you interested in learning more about my wedding photography? Lets keep it simple and start with an email! 

2.Galleries, Contracts, Deposits

Want to actually chat? We can schedule a phone call or meet locally, just let me know! Want to just keep on keeping it simple? I'm great with emails - I know you're busy planning!

Once you've read through my investment guide, I can forward along links to a few sample galleries. If you've decided to have me join you on your wedding day as your professional third wheel aka wedding photographer (lets be honest - I'm with you ALL day friend!), I will forward along the contract and get you information on deposits! 

YAY! It's time to plan your engagement session! Engagement sessions are complimentary, so they're not required. But, they do allow us to spend an evening together! So, you'll get to know more about me, I'll get to know more about you, and you'll receive a full gallery of beautiful images for you to use as save the dates or guest books! Your job is to get dressed up and have fun! My job is to make you feel comfortable (and to tell you what to do with your hands!), and take the beautiful portraits of you! 

3. Engagement Session!

YOU'RE OFFICIALLY BOOKED! The contract is signed, the deposit is taken care of, what's next? Planning that engagement session!

Two months prior to your wedding, you'll receive a link to my questionnaire in your inbox. Once you fill that out and it gets back to me, we can build your timeline! You're so close to your wedding day! So, hand that stress of making a timeline over to me. I'll gladly coordinate with your planner or day of coordinator to make sure we're organized. 

4. Questionnaire & Timelines

It's almost wedding day, so let's get organized and de-stress.

Your big day is finally here! Take a deep breath and let me worry about all the things. Go marry your person! I'll be cheering you on all day, making sure your hair and dress are always on point, and I'll be taking pictures the whole day too!

5. Wedding Day!

It's finally here! It's wedding day, so go party!

In no more than three days after your wedding, you'll receive a handful of sneak-peeks from me. Share them and use them every where you wish! Your full gallery will be in your inbox 6-8 weeks after your wedding. 

6. Photo Delivery

The big day is over and you're ready to see some pictures. When will you?

After looking through all of your images on your computer, the best way to keep them forever would be with an album. If you're interested in learning more about albums, send me an email and I will forward along more information. If you just want prints, you can order them right through the online gallery.

7. Albums & Prints

After viewing all your images, you're either going to want to make an album or get them printed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

Are engagement sessions included in the wedding packages? If I don’t need an engagement session, can the price be adjusted?
Yes! They are included in my full day package. The engagement session is complimentary, so the price of my full day package doesn’t change if the engagement session is or isn't completed.  

When and where can I complete my engagement session?
Engagement sessions that are booked with signing for a wedding photography package can be scheduled anytime after booking, during the months of March-November. Engagement sessions must take place within 30 minutes from Taneytown, MD, but can be at a place of your choosing! I have to limit travel due to weddings :).
 
How do I receive my photos?
All high resolution digital images are delivered through an online photo gallery. When photos are ready, you will receive an email with a link, password, and download code. Following the link leads you to a page where you can view all of your images.

When do I receive my photos?
Since I’m a full time student, the time period to receive photos are extended. For any type of portrait sessions, it will be 4-6 weeks for photos to be returned to you. For weddings, it will be 6-8 weeks until photos are returned. During that time period, sneak peeks will be sent to you and posted online. Your patience is greatly appreciated as I am always working as fast as I can to get your images returned to you!

How many photos will I receive?
For portrait sessions, the minimum photos returned to you are 50. For my full day wedding package, the minimum photos returned to you is 800.
