You're here because of a relationship, and I believe that if we're going to work together, we also need a relationship. I want you to feel like I'm your close friend who just happens to be your wedding photographer - I want late night texts asking which dress you should wear to our engagement session, I want to squeeze your hand as you're about to walk down the aisle, I want to get that "!!!!" text right after I send you your wedding photos. I deeply love and care about all of the couples that I get to shoot for, and for that reason, it's so important to me that we really click before we decide to work together.
I so deeply love photography, and what it takes to make beautiful photographs, that I have made it such a serious part of my business to make sure that every client who walks in front of my lens has access to everything they would need to know for the best shoot of their lives. This especially comes into play with wedding photography - as soon as you book a wedding with me, you get a multi-page digital booklet with probably more information than you want about planning your wedding and how to get the best possible wedding photos.
Finally, I pride myself on giving all of my wedding photography clients the highest quality images possible. I am constantly taking workshops, doing research, updating my equipment and processes, and seeking out ways to give my clients the highest level of image and experience quality available. I go to incredible lengths to keep everything insured, backed up, and always have extra gear with me to make sure that not a single shot is ever going to be missed because an equipment error. I actually shoot with two cameras (and two memory cards in each camera) during most of your wedding day, to give you total peace of mind.
After the special day is over, your closest friends and family have gone home, after you've taken off the heels and put away the dress, the photos that we take together will be where these beautiful, special memories will live, and looking through them will bring all of these magical moments back to life. Whether you're holding your heirloom wedding album, looking at the framed prints, or simply scrolling through the images on your computer, these images will be something that you can cherish forever.
I want to help you every step of the way, whether that's chatting about your wedding colors, what to wear for engagement photos or your timeline. Make sure you choose the perfect photographer to not only spend the entire day with, but one who will treasure your day like it is their own. I don't want to be just another vendor on your wedding day - I want to feel like your closest friend! If you and I click as people and not just as vendor and client, it's going to make the experience so much more magical.

My one piece of wedding advice to all my friends is to book Lindley first before anything else. She is simply a must have. She is professional, captures every moment, and makes you feel so comfortable."
The first step of this process starts by clicking the link below, which will take you to a contact form where you can give me as much (or as little!) information about your wedding as you'd like. Once I get your inquiry, I will do my absolute best to get back to you in under 24 hours, because you are my priority through every step of this process. We'll email, I'll send you all of my packages, and if it seems like we're going to be the perfect fit, we can hop on a Skype call or grab some coffee (or a cocktail) and become best friends even more.
Once you've decided on the package you'd like, I'll send you a link to my Wedding Guide, which I've been putting together throughout the many years that I've been shooting weddings. This contains all of my recommendations for vendors, suggestions for planning a picture-perfect and stress-free wedding, and a few questionnaires so I can get to know all of your photo dreams for you engagement session and wedding day! I'll also send over a digital contract, and get a 50% retainer to hold your date.
Where some photographers have you sign a contract and then dip out until a week before your wedding day, I want to be as involved as you'll let me be! Although we'll get to know each other over an engagement session, I'm always around to chat timelines or detail questions if you need me. My extensive wedding guide walks you though planning and timelines, but I'll be prompting you through all of this, so there's nothing that you'll have to think about or remember.
Step four is your wedding day, the day that you've been dreaming about since you were a little kid. I'll show up a little before my start time, just to set up and do a walkthrough so that I can make my mental shot list, and then the fun starts. I'll be with you every step of the way on your big day - reminding you to breathe, helping move things around and position people so that your photographs are the most gorgeous they can be, and celebrating your love with you.t
The last part of the process comes a month after your wedding day, when I begin the process of sending off your images. I'll send you a digital gallery with all of your photos, downloadable in high-res and also in web compatible files. Once those are sent, I'll get an order placed for any prints/albums/etc included in your package (I wait until after the images are sent to do this, just in case there are any small changes requested), and will have your flash drive and any print material your way within three weeks.
She shot my engagement photos, bridal portraits and my wedding and I could not be happier. She has exceeded expectations (which were high - I've followed her work for years) on every occasion. She truly captured the essence of my relationship with my husband. I can't recommend her enough... we will continue to book Lindley for every occasion possible :)
Before getting engaged, Tyler and I had never been photographed before. Going into our engagement shoot, we didn't know what to expect. For first timers, Lindley made us so comfortable. More than this, she made it a memorable and fun experience. Laughing our way through, the photos turned out incredible. Following this, I did both bridal and boudoir photos with Lindley. Being photographed solo was definitely a different, yet rewarding experience. Lindley helped me to come out of my comfort zone and helped me feel more confident than I ever had before. Every shot is photographed with a purpose - Lindley guides you through it all, and does all of the thinking for you. Eventually things began to really flow, and so did our friendship! Come wedding day, Tyler and I felt fully confident while being photographed from start to finish. Lindley is truly intentional about her connection with her clients, and she ensures that you are able to live in the moment, while she calls the shots - literally. Anyone would be lucky to have Lindley as their wedding, family, or any occasion photographer!
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!
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!
