Away

Personal

Sorry I won’t be around for the next two weeks. I am going to Scotland on October 20th, returning to San Francisco on October 29th and flying out to Connecticut a few hours later to shoot a wedding on Halloween.

Unfortunately, my trip to Scotland is not one for fun or weddings, but to see my grandmother who has been struggling with dementia for the past few years and now looks to have lung cancer. She is actually my namesake as her maiden name is Lindsay. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of my family since my grandmother had 12 children and I have lost count of the cousins I have all over the world.

Hopefully I’ll be back with a few pictures of the beautiful green countryside and some of my relatives too.

Please keep my family in your thoughts.

Thanks,
Lindsay

O flower of Scotland
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

This time for my home state of Pennsylvania that ruled in favor ...

Destination Wedding in Italy | Castello di Vincigliata | MINE!
Many of you have asked about MY wedding.  Well, it was beautiful and amazing and I would never in a million years do it that way again!  Little Miss Type A, professional wedding photographer holding a destination wedding in a country I had never visited, speaking a language I don’t know, on a continent an ocean away…  Yeah, it was stressful but so, so fabulous.  (And I admit it was pretty cool to say I was having a destination wedding in Tuscany, Italy.) Here is my story of the day and some of the snapshots from myself and our 25 guests.  You can see the professional pictures (by the oh-so-talented Alison Conklin Photography team of Alison ...

July Desktop Images
May and June were huge this year. I’ve never been so busy in my life. I’m still going through the thousands of images to get wedding images out to my incredible brides and grooms. I’m thankful for July’s heat that seems to slow down the weddings and give me time to grab a breath and get to more post processing before the fall season comes along and wallops me.Perhaps some of you are teachers and are collectively celebrating the beginning of summer. Or maybe you’re a 9 to 5er with a few weekends to spare down the shore. In any case, think of me slaving away at the computer… and grinning at all of the memories I’ve been so lucky to share ...
