I grew up with a curiosity for photography, but I never allowed myself to explore it. I made it almost all the way through my undergraduate years before I realized that curiosity didn’t stop there: my heart beat faster when I photographed couples in love. I learned that first hand when one of my roommates told another, “just go have Lindsay take your engagement pictures; she has a camera!” My eyes were opened, and the rest is history.
Now I’m able to take pictures of couples during a season of pure joy—engagement. I’m able to capture an heirloom at their wedding to be framed and passed down to children and grandchildren. I’m able to come alongside others and help them do the same. It’s the dream.
Let me come alongside you in your business and offer the tools, strategy, workflows (and more importantly, confidence) you need to #KILLIT!
After 5+ years and over 100 weddings, I quickly learned from trial and error, success and failure and I love to sit down and share that knowledge 1:1 with you. Whether you’re a photographer about to shoot your first wedding, or a seasoned professional who wants to refine the process, pour a cup of coffee (extra creamer please), because we have a lot to cover!
In our one-on-one session, I’ll open up my exclusive wedding playbook and brainstorm tweaks that work for you and your unique brand.
We’ll walk step-by-step through the process of finding ideal brides, serving them with heart through their wedding planning, and cultivating relationships that will last a lifetime (a.k.a. #allthereferrals).
We’ll narrow in on the heart of your business and refine areas like: technical aspects, posing, workflows, boundaries, social media, marketing, blogging, client experience, post-processing and more.
Are you a hands-on-learner with a fancy for being hosted? Then sign up for my next in-home workshop based out of my living room in Richardson, TX! You’ll come with all the questions and leave with the tools to capture photographs you dream of taking and the knowledge to make you feel confident during any photo opp. Let me alleviate the overwhelm, because honey, you are fully capable! What would it look like if you allowed yourself the permission to explore the “what-ifs” of photography and turn them into “what’s next?”
Sometimes our schedules don’t allow for meeting up 1:1 or sitting down to learn over a course. Life is busy, I GET IT. Sometimes pulling the meat out of a simple online e-book is the way to go. Click on over to my shop where you’ll find topics I share like:
Would you rather snuggle up on the couch, settle under a blanket and watch and rewatch your course work so that you have access to it until it clicks? Then one of my online courses is the shoe that fits. Once you’ve purchased, you’ll have lifetime access to the curriculum and support via email or through an online Facebook community.
Courses are available to purchase year ‘round and are perfect to surprise loved ones with as a gift. The online route is perfect if you have the time and self-discipline to complete the curriculum. Otherwise, an in-home workshop or 1:1 mentoring may be the better fit.
This course was created after a number of people asked me if I could teach them how to use their cameras. It brought me back to 2013 when I remembered that very feeling: “someone, anybody, just show me the basics of WHAT I need to know, so I can know HOW to capture memories!” And quick! There were so many opinions out there, but there wasn’t a course that offered to me the tools for the basics of what I needed: to be confident with my camera. In hindsight, I wish I could have sifted through the info to find just the basics. After taking the long road yet finding so much joy, success and fruit from it, I decided to create a course that has the basics of what beginner Lindsay would have needed years ago--a course that will allow you to confidently capture crisp, evenly-exposed photos with your camera so that the world is at your fingertips.
Oh, I get fired up about LIGHTROOM. It is hands down the best in it’s efficient workflow possibilities and detailed options for photographers who edit several photos at a time. Because of the workflow capabilities and tools within the program, I do not feel bound to my computer; I feel like a mom who enjoys editing. Because of its organizational ease, I know where my images are, because let’s be honest, they’re worth their weight in gold--and so are my client’s! And because I understand what’s important for my realm of editing, I can confidently select edits to my own style that leave me creatively-energized and proud of the art I create. Does this program sound like something you need? As a mom, hobbyist or professional, Lightroom is absolutely for you! Imagine the potential if you allowed yourself the room to simply just learn it--in one sitting?
“I’m just frustrated that I spent hours trying to figure all this out by reading online and watching YouTube videos, but I could never really get a good idea of what I was supposed to do and then I was able to understand it all in like 15 minutes from watching The Capture Course.”
