Lynnsey was really wonderful to work with. On our first call I decided she was "the one." She just has great energy, is a fantastically talented photographer, but also has the ability to blend in while somehow still getting amazing shots. I had multiple people tell me how lovely and sweet she was without being in their face. She felt like an additional guest. I did a ton of research on photographers and even though Lynnsey's prices were a bit higher than others, the quality of her work is why she's able to charge more. Seriously, I couldn't even find another Washington photographer who's work compared and I'm very picky. If you're trying to decide where to save in your budget, the photographer is absolutely not the place because nothing is worse than hearing friends tell me that they hate every single one of their wedding pictures, mean while we love all of ours. You can't get the day back -- nor the moments -- so pick someone outstanding like Lynnsey who will do an amazing job. Something I also liked about her is that her albums all look different... because she really looks at the spaces she's in, the people she's working with, the dynamics of it all, and decides what to shoot... not a cookie-cutter photographer. Just great. Love her. Hire her. I promise, you won't regret it.

Neither my husband or myself are comfortable with being in front of a camera. We started off a little awkward but within no time we completely forgot that she was even there. The way she guides you through it makes it so natural that you don't even feel like you are posing. In the end we went from slightly awkward, to not wanting it to stop because we were having so much fun. She has positive, fun energy and it was so nice to have someone that was so positive and calming during this crazy stressful time. She calms your nerves and keeps the energy light and positive!
The end result will blow you away- She has an amazing talent for seeing moments and capturing them so naturally. She gets to know you as a couple and translates your love into her photographs. When I look at the photos and I see every moment that she captured during the ceremony/reception, special moments between family members, and our friends getting down on the dance floor, I have to remind myself that it was just Lynnsey because her work makes it seem as if she has 5 photographers working with her. She doesn't miss a thing! Lastly, if you are considering hiring Lionlady photography for your wedding, I am here to tell you that you will not be disappointed! If there is anything that you spend your money on it should be your photographer and it should be Lynnsey. She works hard, makes you a priority and her work is leaps and bounds above the rest.

I spent a lot of time researching portfolios of photographers in the area. I found that many photographers showcase pictures of model-esque clients, which, while beautiful, didn't convey to me that I would look beautiful as an average joe. When I came across Lynnsey's photos, I was floored by how uniquely gorgeous every photo was. It meant a lot to me to see pictures of people looking beautiful in their joy, no matter their size or race.
Lynnsey was incredible on the day of our wedding. It was a small group and the bulk of our wedding was located indoors but she had scoped out amazing locations for our couple photos all around the Airbnb. When my sister's dress strap snapped, Lynnsey was there, helping her fix it. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable around her - we were so nervous about having our photos taken but Lynnsey made it so easy with her silly questions and guidance and we were laughing the entire time.
Lynnsey was so responsive to my BILLIONS of emails and never made me feel like a burden. I don't have to recommend her to my friends or family because they were there. They met Lynnsey and know of the light she brings to a wedding and loved the photos she turned out for us. I find myself scheming ways to be able to work with her again in the future - that's how amazing she is.

I browsed PNW videographers when I was shopping for wedding vendors, but I didn't see any portfolios that seemed worth their cost. I wasn't willing to pay for a dry or low-quality video. Travel fees for out-of-area videographers were not in the budget either. I gave up.
Fast forward to my friend's wedding in Mexico, where Lynnsey captured the most fun, energetic, and touching moments. As soon as I saw my friend's video, I booked Lynnsey immediately!
And she's worth every penny. Lynnsey is friendly, prompt, and very detail-oriented. I barely noticed she was filming our wedding day, but she didn't miss a beat. All of the promised deadlines were met, and she made sure that we were happy with the music selections. The entire process was easy and as promised. If I ever need a videographer again, I know who to call.

Lynnsey is just plain wonderful to work with and an incredibly talented photographer! My husband and I both constantly worry that we are not very photogenic people and Lynnsey went out of her way to get to know us so that we felt more comfortable in front of the camera. She also has a bunch of fun tricks to get you to look "normal" and by the end of our engagement and wedding photo shoots we both started to forget that the camera was there. We also both wanted to avoid staged or posed appearing photos and Lynnsey's tricks are gold for making photos look natural even when they are somewhat staged. Finally, she has a wonderful artistic eye, making great use of areas around our venue (which was a family home) that I never would have thought could look so gorgeous in a photo. I can't stop looking at our photos simply because she created such beautiful works of art with a place that I've known for years. I'm excited to get some framed (and I'm a person who hates framing photos of herself) just to enjoy Lynnsey's great photography every day!

You know you chose one heck of a photographer when everyone looks at your photos and could tell you were having the time of your life. Lynnsey's formal pictures are so incredibly beautiful, but my favorite pictures from Lynnsey are the ones that capture raw, true happiness of you, your family, and your loved on the happiest day of your life. It is very easy to find a photographer who can capture beautiful pictures with a beautiful setting, great lighting, and with the best of circumstances. Lynnsey's strength lies in her ability to be adaptable with every situation thrown her way and still be able to capture the memories of your day exactly how you want to remember them. We've heard nothing but incredible things about our wedding photos! We've had people tell us that these photos are "just sooo us", which Lynnsey makes a point to do for all her clients. It's been a pleasure working with this incredible lady, and we would choose her again and again!
Monica + Donny | Married 2017
Lynnsey's service, skill and professionalism far exceeded my expectations! My fiancé and I did our engagement photos, wedding photos and an impromptu day-after session when I didn't have time to get the shots I wanted on the day of our wedding.
Lynnsey made a point to capture the feeling and the look of the photos I was hoping for. I was going for a certain look for our wedding photos and Lynnsey was careful to listen to what we wanted, what we didn't want, and how we wanted our day to look. Not only is she an excellent photographer, but she helped me with the day of wedding timing and details. Again, exceeding my expectations.
Lynnsey writes on her website that she wants to build a friendship with her clients and really get to know them. I will vouch that this is certainly a knack of hers. She is wonderful to be around and spend time with. Even guests at our wedding commented on how great she was before seeing her work. I'm still shocked by how beautiful our photos turned out.
Lynnsey is highly punctual, reliable, and responsive. I felt silly texting her asking questions all the time, or just little things I was worried about, and she handled it in stride. I can't recommend Lionlady Photography enough to anyone looking for a photographer. We have had 3 separate sessions with her, and will be using her in the future for any of our special moments in life that require special photos. She is a strong business woman and a fantastically skilled photographer.
Stacey + Marc | Married 2017
“Lynnsey was so amazing! She captured our wedding perfectly and even stuck with me through all my requests and nit picky ways. She’s more than just a photographer she will be a part of your wedding team and help you along the way. Could not ask for anything better. You will not be disappointed trust me!”
Glenna + Mat | Married 2017
We just got our wedding photos back and I can't believe how beautiful they are. Lynnsey captured the emotions of the day so well that every time I go through the photos I find myself tearing up. We've gotten many compliments on how beautiful they are, as well as how unintrusive Lynnsey is as a photographer - many people said that they didn't even realize she was there most of the time. Side note - her website says that she will become your friend and that's 100% true. We definitely made plans to meet up the next time she is in town. Thank you so much, Lynnsey!
Julia + Paul | Married 2016
“Lynnsey is the very best of the best! I cannot recommend her enough! We were fortunate enough to have her shoot both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we are so beyond happy with them! The photos for both sessions turned out beyond amazing! We have gotten so many compliments on them! Lynnsey is so talented and fun to work with! There is such an attention to detail in her photos. She is an amazing photographer and person, working with her was so great, we cannot wait to work with her again in the future! Choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision–and we could not have choose a better photographer for our big day! We will look back upon these photos for a lifetime.”
Sam + Cam | Married 2015
“I can’t express enough how great Lynnsey is. Her eye for detail is amazing. Her timing is amazing. Her passion is amazing. She’s friendly, sweet, easy to work with, thoughtful and talented. We were truly blown away at the photos she captured at our wedding. I’m so so happy we chose her. My husband and I aren’t the most photogenic and we aren’t super comfortable in front of the camera either but she definitely brings out all your great angles. They say it’s not the subject but the photographer that makes the photo beautiful. She tells stories through her work and if pictures are worth a thousand words, hers are worth millions. Thank you so much Lynnsey, it was such an honor to have you there.”
Adam + Kathy | Couples Session 2016
"Lynnsey takes stunning photos, you will absolutely love whatever you have her shoot. But what is best about Lynnsey is her professional and at the same time very personal treatment of the session. She really makes you feel comfortable during the shoot. It never feels like you are “just another couples session” with her. She is clear when communicating her ideas for shots to you, and gives feedback the entire time. The images she sent us are stunning; we couldn’t be happier with the experience of this shoot or recommend her more highly! You will love the images and love the experience!”
Andi + Will | Married 2015
“We had Lynnsey shoot our wedding and the whole experience was great! Lynnsey was a breeze to work with and put everyone at ease. We had some interesting weather that day and she was great with adjusting the shoot to make it work with the wind and the rain. She is super sweet and friendly and it felt like we had a good friend doing the photos instead of a stranger – which was a great comfortable feeling! I will definitely use her again for our future photo needs.”
Jamie+ Grayson | Married 2015
“I can’t recommend Lynnsey highly enough! She is so talented and so so fun to work with. We had her do our engagement pictures and wedding photos, and have gotten tons of compliments on both. Thank you for everything!”
Emily + Billy | Married 2015
“Lynnsey of Lionlady Photography is wonderful to work with! We hired her as our wedding photographer and we’re so grateful we did! With her organized planning, attention to artistic detail and her kind disposition, she makes your big day a lot less stressful. Her photography style is fresh and genuine and her photos perfectly unfold the story of your entire wedding day.”
Carlie + Robert | Married 2014
“Lionlady Photography was amazing! Lynnsey was so sweet and easy to be around. I feel like we were instant friends. She was flexible with setting up times to meet and was on time when we did. She was very professional in the way she wrote and presented her contract; there were no surprises and everything was clear and easy to understand. Her work is wonderful! Lynnsey has a very unique eye and you can tell that she is really gifted. One of the reasons I chose her was because her work is creative and she sees a setting and a photo in a very creative way. Her pictures are different, and I love that! She is also a very good communicator and will take whatever kind of photos you are looking for, if that is more traditional or maybe hipster-she will make it look perfect. I was beyond satisfied with the final photos I received and I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from everyone who has viewed them. I would recommend Lionlady Photography in an instant and I am trying to come up with a new excuse to have her photograph for me again! Thanks for everything Lynnsey, you were a joy to work with.”
Cady + Sean | Married 2013
“Lynnsey truly captured the best serendipitous moments throughout our special day. She highlighted our personalities and quirks in our candids and also was able to sieze the most elegant poses in our natural movements. Our small and sentimental ceremony was represented perfectly with warmth, beauty and authenticity. Just amazing! Friendly and easy to work with, she will help guide the shoot or allow you to play on your own, depending on your comfort level with the camera. She did both my engagement photos and wedding photos and she tried to incorporate compositions from the engagement shoot into the wedding photos. Highly artistic but sensitive to your own aesthetic.”
