The Experience

it's so much more than just one day...

If you have made it this far, you’re definitely interested in working with me… you’ve seen the photos, you’ve read that I will dance at your reception, and you’re ready to tackle wedding planning together.

First, fill out the contact form (you can find that here or use the button at the bottom of the page).  I’ll send over a short questionnaire to learn more about you. 

We can share emails, coffees, texts, facetime calls… whatever we need to be sure that we are a good match.  I don’t mind saying that I may not be the best fit for every couple.  My style is organic and free and I thrive in creative spaces.  I want my clients to have me at my very best, so if you look through my social media and only ‘sort of’ like my shooting style, I won’t be offended.  You should LOVE your photographer’s portfolio and be excited when you try to envision yourself photographed by them!  You deserve to have exactly what you want on your wedding day!

When we make it official, I change my job description to being your personal cheerleader and wedding planning sidekick. We will make so many lists… timelines… rough draft plans for your wedding day.  Need a coffee before the wedding?  I don’t mind getting it.  Need someone to put your veil in?  I’ll help you out.  Need me to scout out locations for portraits?  On it!

I have had some of the sweetest clients tell me that they forgot I was their photographer because I turned into such a good friend.

So if you’re in, let’s do this thing! If you’re here for family or portrait sessions please know the experience will be similar, just on a smaller scale with a little less dancing.

Lindsey hands down created the best photography experience for me and my family during all of our sessions. She’s so good with my kids and they absolutely love her. Also, my husband who’s not much for pictures felt instantly comfortable around her and it was the beginning of a lifelong friendship with her and her husband for us. We adore them so much! My wedding day was such an emotional day for everyone and there were so many people with so much love surrounding us Lindsey still made sure that the right moments were intimate and private between Jake and I. 20/10 recommend! She’s incredible and I will cherish my wedding pictures FOREVER!

Lindsey and her team are AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about her and her amazing work! I knew she was amazing because she did a friends wedding, but with COVID this year she was so helpful and treated us like royalty! Not to mention her pictures are absolutely phenomenal! I can't wait to use Lindsey again for our family in the future!

Lindsey is the absolute best at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She is laid back, funny, and makes you even forget that you’re getting photos taken. She captures moments that you didn’t even realize were important until you see them in print. Some of my favorite photos from our engagement session and weddings are ones that I didn’t even know that she was snapping pics of us!

From our engagement, wedding, Christmas, family, and lifestyle pics Studio Llotus has been wonderful to work with. My house is filled with her pictures! We go back to her every time because of how great her photos are, not to mention how she makes being behind the camera so easy.

We chose Studio Llotus because of the wonderful reputation Lindsey holds. We knew we would be getting the best of the best when it comes to photography. During our engagement session Lindsey allowed us to incorporate some of our favorite things, such as Kentucky Lake. Lindsey was willing to go the extra mile to ensure the uniqueness of our relationship was represented. On our wedding day Lindsey was there from start to finish! We knew she would cover every aspect of our special day, we were not disappointed.

Let’s get real, there are a ton of great photographers out there. What makes working with Studio Llotus different?

You’re right. There are tons of wonderful photographers around. But having a relationship with my clients is one of my top priorities. There is no way I can capture your relationship as a couple without knowing you, getting along with you, and learning how to make sure you’re comfortable being YOU while we shoot.

For my clients, my job turns into many things, including becoming a close friend! You aren’t sure what flowers match your location?… I’ll help you decide. You need a bottle of water right before the ceremony?… if I can’t get it, I’ll make sure someone does! 
Booking with me turns into an experience, rather than just a day. I make sure everyone on the Studio Llotus team fits this mold too!

How would you classify your direction + style?

“Changing direction in life is not tragic. Losing passion in life is.” - Max Lucado

This quote couldn’t be a better answer to this question. I’ve always had a hard time putting anything I do into one category and giving it a name. As I go through phases in life, my photography does too. I strive to keep a timeless look to all of my images and avoid trends, but I am never afraid to try new things.

That being said, I will tell you the style that I am not. Indoor locations with studio lighting = not my jam. I don’t mind helping you find someone that fits that style if that’s what you prefer. I shot this way in college and in the beginning I offered this service. But I personally do not think my best images come from those situations. I THRIVE in outdoor locations, new or old. Want to get married in a luxurious castle?… I’m all about it. Want to elope on a mountain top?… I’ll help plan the hike. Whatever your dream is, I'm excited to be a part of it.

What is a \"hybrid\" photographer? Why film?

A hybrid photographer works with the best of both worlds: film and digital. Using two mediums at a wedding ensures that every emotion of the day is captured. Film shows tiny details that sometimes digital can overlook, while digital creates magic by giving us more images in less time. By using both, you receive timeless images that allow you to relive the small moments of your big day.

How do we book? Do you require a deposit?

For weddings, a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 with a signed contract is required to reserve your date. The remaining amount is split into two payments, one due half way to your wedding date and the other is due on the day you say \"I do\". For family + couple shoots, no deposit is required unless travel is involved.

What is the average turn around time for sessions + wedding galleries?

Engagements + regular galleries take 3-6 weeks for gallery completion. Weddings + elopement galleries take 7-10 weeks.

Some seasons are busier than others and turn around times can vary. Trust me, I would never rush through the editing process and I keep clients up to date with how their gallery is coming along.

How are my photographs delivered? Can I order prints through you?

After your photographs have been thoroughly reviewed, processed and edited, they will be uploaded into an online gallery. You will receive a link to create a password to keep your photos safe. You can share this link with family, friends, and anyone you want to be able to view and purchase photos/prints. Your gallery is linked to an online store. I suggest ordering larger prints/albums through Studio Llotus (your gallery store), as prints are color calibrated with your gallery.

Tangible products are so important and I try to keep my prices so that it is reasonable for any and all family + friends to purchase.
