My first word was “happy”. Though it was probably a fluke, I like to think it reflects my nature to be a generally bright and upbeat person. I’m petite yet full of energy and excitement. I can lounge in bed or wake up and hit the road without a destination (the latter is partially due to my terrible sense of direction). I love cooking alongside someone with the possibility of a food fight. My shoe laces never stay tied. I don’t like texting but I do it anyway. I choose the hat when I play Monopoly. I like my potatoes and applesauce lumpy. I only “LOL” if it’s true. I pull the chocolate chips out of chocolate chip cookies. I resent writing with anything besides a mechanical pencil. I like simple sentences and proper grammar. I love the noises my dog makes when she dreams. I am learning to dance the Lindy Hop on Wednesday nights. The shower is my favorite place. I’m a vegetarian cursed with loving barbecue sauce. I’m willing to try almost anything at least once. I’m game if you are.

Oh, you wanted to know about Lindsay the photographer…

I am the photographer who can bustle your dress in 2 minutes flat. I am the photographer who carries the safety pins and sewing kit to reattach it when you’ve danced so hard it breaks. I am the photographer who will tell you, really tell you, when you have something in your teeth, your strap is showing, or that cowlick is being wonky again. I am the photographer who will return your sweaty hug on the dance floor at the end of the night. I am the photographer who will be patient and calm but make sure that everything runs smoothly and on schedule. I am the photographer who doesn’t use 10 lights, 20 minutes, and micromanage every body part to “perfect” every picture. I am the photographer who knows that happy people beautiful things great situations = perfect pictures. I am the photographer who would rather take pictures of real people laughing than fashion models scowling. I am the photographer who has photographed hundreds of weddings and has been published all over. I am the photographer who would rather you look at each other and your guests than the camera. I am the photographer who appreciates every family heirloom, ribbon, sign, nibble, and flourish that you’ve picked to make your wedding yours.

I’m the photographer who goes for quality over quantity so that I can photograph every engagement session and wedding and really get to know your sweet, couple-y idiosyncrasies.

Hi, I’m Lindsay and I love what I do. Nice to meet you. Read less

Lindsay is one of those vendors where I would take phone calls, leave messages and reviews in every possible manner. We actually found Lindsay at our friends wedding where she made my husband (fiance at the time) and I feel incredibly comfortable and fabulous as guests while she was photographing us. Our friends were married outside in a tent (which from an event planners prospective is a nightmare for photographs) and she blew us away. She was able to capture the sprawling landscape and also the intimate moments. I certainly think of myself as a very awkward picture taker and from our engagement shoot through the wedding I felt like my best friend was working with us. She put us at ease and as they say the proof is in the pudding. My friends and family have been gushing over my husband and I and most importantly themselves in every photograph Lindsay took from the wedding. My father in law was unable to attend our wedding due to a last minute issue which was horrible, but he cannot stop looking and crying over the photographs Lindsay has shared. She truly captured the feel and emotions of the wedding (which was insanity). She sent us teaser very quickly and even the full package well before some of my friends who were married before us. I was more concerned with my band during our planning and I am so grateful that we took the time to notice Lindsay because now I will remember my wedding just the way it was, every crazy wonderful moment. Thank you Lindsay!!

I found Lindsay about 4 years before I found my husband, which is of course the best way to go. I noticed a photo she took of a classmate on Facebook, and began following her on Facebook and her blog. The images were stunning, creative, and told a story each time. When we got engaged in 2013, Lindsay was the second easiest decision that I made. (After my husband of course) It's easy, or should be, to be on time, responsive and professional. Lindsay is someone you instantly connect with, and she cares about getting all of the little details, even ones you don't notice yourself. She doesn't just get the posed shots, she takes care to catch the laughter, the tears and those moments you frankly might forget after a whirlwind day. Every time we go back through our photos we remember the fun and the joy, which is exactly what our marriage is all about.

After waking up this morning to find Lindsay had hand delivered our wedding proof book and digital images (replete with doggie treats for our pooch!) overnight, I decided she was in for a long overdue ear-burning session! Lindsay Docherty is the consummate professional and truly one of the most phenomenal human beings on the face of the earth. Working with her over the last year and a half, from the week we got engaged to the post-wedding star treatment we continue to receive months after our October nuptials, has been such a sincere delight. Photography is undoubtedly one of the most integral components of your wedding; everyone tells you your wedding pictures are the one tangible memento you will take with you and cherish for the rest of your married life. Lindsay's work speaks for itself. Her pictures are both timeless and modern, elegant and fun, professional and relaxed. Another critical consideration in selecting your photographer is to ensure your personalities are compatible. Your photographer will be the one vendor who is physically present (sometimes up close and personal!) for all the significant moments on your big day. Lindsay is a ray of sunshine. She is pint-size but packs with a major punch of diligence and enthusiasm. We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture all the memories from our wedding in a representation so true to us as a couple. Now, I just have to cajole my hubby into renewing our vows on a regular basis so we have an excuse to work with LDP as often as possible!

From our first phone call to our last meeting to design our album, Lindsay was professional, timely, detail-oriented, energetic, thoughtful and engaged. Lindsay isn't just a talented photographer, she is a professional wedding lover and truly enjoys hearing every detail from how you met to how you picked your wedding color scheme - I believe she takes the time to get to know her couples so closely because it enables her to excel on the wedding day. Not only was the planning process painless, the final product surpassed my highest hopes. Our family and friends were unanimously blown away.

We absolutely loved working with Lindsay. She was professional and sweet and personable and responsive from the get-go, and remained that way throughout the process. Her complimentary engagement shoot is so generous and made a huge difference in developing a relationship with her and allowing her to get a sense of how we photographed prior to the wedding. Her process is very thorough and we really appreciated how much time she took to gather all the necessary details and make sure everything was as we wanted. And last but certainly not least, her pictures are beautiful. She did a fabulous job at capturing all the important moments and the overall feeling of our wedding. We can't recommend her enough!

Lindsay was incredible to work with. She requires that her couples do an engagement session with her because she wants to get to know them before the big day. She led us during the session by giving us great direction but never asked us to pose awkwardly. During the engagement session, she asked us about how we met, what our interests are, and got to know us while taking photos... it was great! On the big day, Lindsay arrived early and was incredibly efficient. She was friendly, but focused, and everyone had good things to say about her. We also had a second photographer that she used (Hue) and he was also incredible. They were both great to work with and I would absolutely recommend them. Her services are pricey, but SOOOO worth it... just check out her pictures online and you'll see what I mean.

I truly cannot say too many good things about Lindsay. My husband and I decided to have a wedding with just the 2 of us, but we wanted some good photos to remember the day by. Lindsay was the perfect choice and was an integral part of making our day amazing as well as creating some gorgeous and memorable photos. It was Lindsay who suggested where we should get married and she was very helpful with giving me some tips on other vendors. We chose our officiant on her recommendation and were not disappointed. On the day itself she was so full of energy and helped us (complete novices at posing) feel at ease. Everyone who has seen photos of that day have loved them, and needless to say, so do we! Lindsay is an creative, talented, and consummate professional. I HIGHLY recommend her!

In my opinion, Lindsay is the best there is. She was the first vendor we locked in, and I am SO glad that we did. Lindsay is sassy and funny, and she has this ability to take all of the awkwardness out of having your picture taken. She's kind and warm, and really helps you to remember what's important on your big day. It was like having another gal pal who you've known forever next to your side. Lindsay is the real deal. She listens to your ideas and requests, but also knows when to do her own thing to ultimately deliver breathtaking shots. She's a doll and has the best heart - I now consider her a friend. If you are lucky enough to have Lindsey shoot your wedding, you're going to have an incredible day.

Having Lindsay photograph our wedding was such a great decision. She made us feel comfortable, captured such incredible moments with our friends and family and was like a second wedding planner. As we were making decisions throughout the day, I found myself looking to Lindsay for her advice and she was always spot on. I would highly recommend her and would gladly use her again for other important life events.
