The untraditional bride, who romanticizes life —

Wedding photography for

The small and big things alike

I seek to see you as you are, capture this in time, and provide you with images that connect you to this authenticity again and again.

...and savoring meaningful moments in time began to find its expression through the art of photography.

— wedding and portrait photographer who is inspired by the authenticity of human connection and experience.

Meet Lindsey Whatley

From a young age, channeling creativity found expression in various forms; writing stories, choreographing dances, or listening to Frank Sinatra while I was mentally transported elsewhere. Little did I know, my true passion awaited me in a simple yet magical device: my camera. Although at the age I held my first camera I did not have the words to articulate it yet, the world became a playground of opportunities.

Over time, I realized it is through the art of photography that I began to perceive the world differently - to see beauty where it might otherwise be passed by. It is a voice, allowing me to weave together a tapestry of stories, emotions, and memories to cherish for a lifetime. I did not always know I would be a photographer one day, but the value for cherishing the people around me...

This is my love, Johnathan - he is my safest place, my closest friend, and my favorite person. When I think about photographing your special day, the love we share is one of the things that drives me. It's a reminder that preserving your memories is of immeasurable worth. Our wedding photos are treasures, and our love captured so honestly is a gift that will be cherished for the rest of our life.

We will treasure these forever. Even my "I don't like taking photos" husband loved doing this so there's definitely some magic making going on. One of our friends said of these photos, 'They almost look like a New York Times engagement announcement.' Creative vision, technical skills, guiding prompts... and she's the sweetest and makes it so comfortable and fun. Hire her! She'll make your photo dreams come true.

"The images are perfect. I love them so much."

- Cameron & Takuto

You came through with exactly what we wanted. You were professional, timely, easy to work with. We couldn't be happier with our photos - they're works of art, honestly, several of which are already framed in our home. We will treasure them for a lifetime!

"You are incredible."
