Co-Owner / Lead Photographer
A number of years ago when Lynn first (and some would say “finally”) started shooting weddings, it’s like she’d prepared for that moment her whole life. From a photography perspective, she’d always had the eye and the equipment. As she tells us, “I remember as far back as 6th grade being the one on the class trip with multiple disposable cameras to capture everything.” She later went on to work at Ritz Camera for eight years, learning the ins-and-outs of all the different cameras as well as film processing. Finally, she bought her own SLR film camera and learned how to maneuver the different settings to create the effects she wanted. Lynn was getting valuable hands-on training with the equipment while gaining invaluable wedding experience with Elite Entertainment. Besides serving as our office manager for over a decade now, Lynn has music mixed at weddings as well as assisted with Elite Video Productions. She also worked in catering for a few years.
All of this experience has helped her as a wedding photographer. As she explains: “knowing first-hand what some of the other vendor’s priorities are allows me to not only get my job done, but also make sure I don’t interfere with theirs.” It also allows her to be an even bigger help to the couple: “I often help with other aspects throughout the day if needed: help dress the bride, put boutonnieres on the guys, bustle the bridal gown, and other little things I happen to know how to do simply from being around weddings forever. Many times I double as a personal assistant for the day.”
When it comes to shooting weddings, Lynn loves when “a couple is comfortable showing their affection – that really comes through in the photos. Also, a fun couple (and bridal party) willing to try different ideas. That helps to create some truly memorable and unique images.”
Family is particularly important to Lynn. She loves to spend time with her two beautiful daughters and her husband, adding, “I’m a big fan of vacations, specifically cruises and anything outdoors!” Lynn also loves music (as the wife of a DJ and music producer that is probably a prerequisite) and she still enjoys going to clubs or concerts. She’s an incredibly popular photographer and her schedule fills quickly so if you are interested in Lynn shooting your wedding, contact us as soon as possible for her availability and to set up an appointment.
