I’m so excited to be featured on the Basic Invite blog today! First I want to introduce myself. My name is Lindsay and I am a Portrait and Wedding photographer based in Annapolis, Maryland. Although I love my little historic town, I serve couples all over Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia!
I love photographing couples in love and especially ones who like to have fun in front of the camera! I believe those are the best pictures, when you see people laughing and having a good time. I want to capture the true personality of my couples.
I’ve always loved being outside in nature and getting that breath of fresh air. That's where I started my love of photography. I would spend hours outside taking photos of flowers and anything I could find in my parents backyard. My style is definitely light and airy and now that I’m taking photos of people, I like to put them outside in natural light!
The shoot I decided to share on this blog is of my most recent styled shoot. We called this shoot a windswept beach styled shoot because when we got to our location, the wind was crazy! Thankfully it was only blowing in one direction, so we were able to use it to our advantage!
Styled shoots can be stressful but once everything is together, they are so much fun and the end result is always amazing! I was able to work with some awesome vendors who I will list below. So if you’re getting married in the Maryland area you should definitely check them out! We used a beach in Southern Maryland and also had a bridesmaid model to add some variety to the shoot! We did a variety of poses, some serious because our model was so gorgeous with the wind blowing through her hair and her dress! But also some of my favorite poses with laughter and tons of smiles! We definitely laughed A LOT during the process and off camera were our hair stylist and an assistant of mine setting up the table decor and quick! By the time we arrived we had less than an hour to shoot but I ended up snapping 600 photos! I couldn't have done it without everyone's help and we are all so happy with how everything turned out!
