To start the booking process, simply get in touch! I respond quickly to all inquiries with a link to my Wedding Collection Guide, as well as the option to schedule a phone call. I love offering my couples custom packages that best fit their specific needs for their wedding day, so after our call, I'll send a personalized proposal your way for approval. Once the proposal is approved, a 50% retainer and signed contract is all you need to secure your wedding date.
Once everything is signed, sealed, and delivered, then the real fun begins. I pride myself in being very hands-on with my clients when it comes to the wedding planning process, and am always here to give advice or suggestions for anything needed. Across the board, I believe that each wedding planning experience is unique to each couple, but I promise to be as helpful as possible. If you select a package that includes an engagement session, I offer all of my couples customize outfit suggestions for their engagement session. I have questionnaires and planning processes from the day you sign your contract to help me completely prepare for your unique wedding dreams and visions.
When I'm at your wedding day, my job is to act like your dream best friend who happens to be carrying a lot of camera gear. You're stressed? I'm here to calm you down. You need a mimosa? Already pouring the glass. I arrive at each wedding day with my timeline and shot list completely planned out, so that I can be fully present in making the moment feel as magical as the pictures will look.
Pop the champagne - your photos are on their way! It takes a month to send off your film and edit your wedding photos, but within a month of your wedding day, they're all yours. I send a digital gallery first, and then collect any additional edit requests before ordering any prints and albums that were included in or added to your wedding package. Three to four weeks after the final approval of your photos, you can expect your photos to arrive in the mail on a gorgeous USB drive.
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."
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 or looking at the prints framed on your wall, 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.

When I get on calls with future couples, one of the things I hear the most is "we absolutely love the feel of your photos, but don't know exactly why." Most of the time, when we talk about what exactly is speaking to them, it quickly becomes clear that the "feel" to which they're referring is the look of film.
Film, like a video?
No, film like the old school rolls that the photogs of your grandparents were captured on! A large part of my wedding photography process is that I shoot mostly medium format film, as opposed to digital images.
What exactly does that mean?
This part is a little more difficult to explain. First of all, it means that I'm spending over $1,000 per wedding buying and processing the film from your wedding. But I would never change that, because I believe that is absolutely worth it. To the average person, a film image may not look *that* much different than a digital one, on the surface. However, there is a certain depth, timelessness, and classic feeling to a film photograph that just makes it so much more precious. I feel like your wedding images deserve to hold the emotion of the day they capture.
"She truly captured the essence of my relationship with my husband..."
"She made us feel so natural and confident in front of the camera."
Yours, and ours! I firmly believe that my duty as your potential wedding photographer is to ensure that we're the perfect fit, and that starts with a relationship.
