Lindsey

Lindsey will feel like your best friend the moment you meet her as she greets you with a big hug & friendly smile. She lives with an intentional enthusiasm for life & always finds a way to capture her subjects through that same lens. Her father gifted her his 50mm Yashica film camera when she was in junior high & trained her to record every exposure as she shot. This storytelling hobby developed through her art courses in college & then after while traveling in South America. When she's not shooting, you'll find her exploring new sushi spots, playing volleyball or off soaking up different cultures around the world.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING MEMORY SO FAR?

Shooting from the bed of the Best Man’s truck as the bride & groom rode away on their #twinning vespas. Cars were honking, passersby were cheering, & every stop light they held hands & kissed. This couple was silly, spontaneous & all about a good time. The bride then decided we should stop & play for a while at the playground before heading to their reception venue? kid #1 “I love your dress Miss!” kid #2 “Congratulations!!” kid #3 “You’re dress is so pretty Miss bride!”.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?

My books. Even though I’m living a pretty simplistic SF lifestyle as far as material objects go, I can’t get rid of my books. I can always add more shelves for them. I love to read. I love Harry Potter, The Secret Life of Bees, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Between the World & Me. I love the feel, smell & cover of a beautifully bound book & I’m stoked to share my favorites with my children someday.

WHERE ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL HANGOUTS/SECRET SPOTS?

I recently moved to San Francisco from Seattle and have loved getting to know this eclectic, vibrant city! I love running in Golden Gate Park & biking to Ocean Beach. We have gone on a handful of really incredible hikes & day adventures in the beautiful surrounding areas from Mount Tam & Alamere Falls to Santa Cruz & Mount Diablo. I really really really can’t wait to float the Russian River! We also love the food scene here. We have been checking out new sushi spots weekly! Okina & Yuubi are some of our favorites so far. Meeting friends at Off the Grid & dancing to local music in the park are always a yes in my book.

what is your idea of perfect happiness?

Perfection is totally in the journey for me as whimsical as that sounds… I can think of so many glorious moments of happiness? Holding hands in a foreign country, adventuring as locally as possible. A beer & a fire at sunset with friends at the beach after a long day of beach volleyball. Friendsgiving! Sharing food, laughs & what we're thankful for, I love Friendsgiving. The couch, Frank Ocean turned up, & a game of Settlers of Catan with my two loves? my man & my kitten.
