February 3, 2019
I’m staring at my blinking cursor just thinking, “do I even have the words to explain exactly how I’m feeling right now?”
This brand reveal + website launch is BIG.
It’s not just big to me, but it was a big undertaking.
It took big planning.
It took big prayers.
And it took not only a big chunk of MY time (and past half year) but my designer Bonnie’s time, as well. (Guys, she is the REAL DEAL).
I have known for years that there was something more to wedding photography tugging at my heart strings, though I couldn’t quite articulate it. I have wanted to rebrand to reflect these desires…for years. I see now why the timing wasn’t right–how I personally wasn’t in the right mindset or understanding of what was placed on my heart. And honestly, once I made the decision to rebrand, it took months of processing my heart out loud with trusted friends of mine, vendors in the industry and intentional prayers.
I basically trusted Bonnie with what felt like something so vulnerable, fragile and important to me–to implement my heart for my business into design and lay it out in such a way that will better serve my people, my brides–even the ones whose weddings I’ve already photographed or the ones I didn’t get to.
To better serve photographers–the ones who are on-the-go with their families and the ones who are working professionally.
My new website is fully capable of serving ALL brides and ALL photographers–and for that, I am SO confident and pleased!!
It’s not just showcasing my wedding photography, but it also has 3 other corners that I LOVE!
The Marriage Hub
Probably what I am most excited about (I don’t know, it’s hard–honestly) is this little, safe corner on my website called The Marriage Hub. It’s a place where I envision past brides of mine, bridesmaids who remembered their friend’s photographer cared about their marriage and anybody in between–finding themselves perusing for inspiration or guidance. I have seemed to observe that many couples are either 1) open about their relationship yet lack direction 2) closed off and quiet about their dissatisfaction or 3) stagnant and not pursuing one another but assuming it’s normal.
And that saddened me.
So while there are many couples who are healthy and want more inspiration–you are so welcome here.
And to the couples who are struggling silently or struggling publicly–you are so welcome here.
It’s a safe space where you can simply turn back to for the “giddiness” of date night ideas or the “grind” with deeper, more work-involved tools.
I love that it encompasses anything and everything in between, the heart I share for marriage and how dang much I love Jordan and rallies up some pretty incredibly talented guest bloggers and counselors. I hope you leave encouraged and maybe find a post or podcast that resonates with you or prompts you to share with a friend.
Education for Photographers
WHEW! YES! It’s true. I’m an Enneagram 2, and I LOVE to help. I love to feel like I can enter into somebody’s world in their current needs and meet them where they are. I love cheering on, and in addition to–I love photography. Together, that makes a sweet combo. 😉
I can talk and share about photography for….ever. If you’ve asked, you know.
I’m so excited that I now have an Education page on my website that houses #allthingseducation. There are free resources, in-home workshops, 1:1 coaching, online courses and more.
As LDP has grown, I’ve realized that my passion has extended from photographing to helping others do the same.
YES, LDP has a shop that’s opening oh-so-soon, and I can hardly wait to share more about it with you! Hang tight, friend! 😉
Other fun spaces I LOVE:
If you’re planning your wedding, you’ll find not only my wedding experience but a few freebies for you to take with you (like how to nail your engagement session OR what details to pack for your photographer on your wedding day) on my SERVICES PAGE.
If you’re like, “okay, who’s this Lindsay girl?” I love the timeline part of my ABOUT PAGE that encompasses the past several years of my life!
Lastly, I love a good GIVEAWAY
