THE WHARF, WASHINGTON DC

Autumn & Ryan

Autumn & Ryan

The Wharf, Washington dc

Autumn and Ryan met at the Naval Research Laboratory in D.C., and started their relationship off by studying for the GRE together. While both in their PhD programs, COVID hit, and they found themselves in an 800 square foot one bedroom apartment together in Washington DC. A situation that would have been incredibly challenging for many couples ended up being an incredibly special time in their lives, and their relationship only grew and strengthened during that time. Finally, Ryan proposed to Autumn in Colorado over the July 4th weekend of 2021. 

Although Autumn initially had her heart set on an elopement, the wedding that she and Ryan planned at the DC Wharf ended up being completely and perfectly authentic to them. They threw out all typical wedding traditions (Ryan was with her when she bought her dress, and they got ready together on the wedding day!), and instead focused all of their energy on having a truly incredible party. 

"We didn’t book a videographer and I do not have any regrets about this because of the way that Lindley was able to capture our reception–the photos make you feel the moment. Everyone that I shared our wedding album with was so amazed at the photos: the quality, the style, the detail. "

Where to even begin? Lindley was an absolute dream to work with. We booked her for our wedding and added an engagement shoot. I wasn’t initially planning on having an engagement shoot, but so many people recommended it so that you and your photographer can get to know each other (and you get more amazing photos). I am SO happy we made this decision. My husband had never had any kind of professional photos of himself taken before and he had the best time (and he isn’t a big fan of having his photo taken). The hours flew by and we honestly felt like we had spent time catching up with an old friend. I was nervous about taking photos in front of people and I truly did not even notice this in the moment, Lindley made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. 

For our wedding, I sent Lindley a Pinterest board with vibe inspo, but had no specific photos in mind and she absolutely killed it. We didn’t book a videographer and I do not have any regrets about this because of the way that Lindley was able to capture our reception–the photos make you feel the moment. Everyone that I shared our wedding album with was so amazed at the photos: the quality, the style, the detail. 

Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is fun, kind, and a joy to be around. I have been in and attended many weddings and I have never worked with someone like her. She really was a huge part of our wedding celebrations and us having a day filled with pure magic. I cannot recommend her enough!

She is simply a must have. She is professional, captures every moment, and makes you feel so comfortable. I did my engagement photos, bridal portrait, and wedding day photos with her. She kept the entire wedding party happy and focused to complete all our photos in a timely manner. She also got our photos back to us very quickly! we got so many compliments on her the day of the wedding from guests who saw her buzzing around capturing each special moment. I look forward to special opportunities in the future to do photos with her again!

Out of all the vendors we had for our wedding Lindley was our absolute best (and we had many amazing vendors). My one piece of wedding advice to all my friends is to book Lindley first before anything else.

She has such a talent for photography, and all of our friends and family are obsessed with our wedding photos (as are we)! She never felt invasive, if anything, she made the photo process fun, which is saying something for two people who get nervous about photos! Just lovely. 5+++ stars!

We cannot recommend Lindley highly enough! She was AMAZING to work with leading up to the wedding as well as the day of.
