Weddings. They are filled with laughter and excitement. Tears of joy. Banter between old friends. Freshly cut flowers. Kids playing. Grandparents watching. Champagne flowing. Embarrassing speeches. Good music. Dancing Feet. Your BFF twerking. Sometimes it isn't always perfect.
In fact, sometimes it gets really messy. But that's the thing...it's all so real and honest and done in the name of love. It's all of that in-between stuff that's not listed on a "shot list" that I like to capture. The authentic moments, where you are being your true selves, unprovoked, where you almost forget I'm there watching. As a documentary photographer, I live for those moments. At my core, I believe that wedding photography should be all about capturing the genuine love and joy between two people, along with all the beauty and love that surrounds them.
The sooner, the better! I always advise my clients to book my services as soon as they finalize their wedding date and secure their venue. I've actually had some clients check my availability to make sure that I'm available on their wedding date before they secure their venue. Most clients book a year or more in advance.
This is the most frequently asked question and the hardest to answer because each wedding is so different. I offer customized wedding photography packages that cater to different needs and preferences and will happily create a personalized quote if you fill out my inquiry form. Prices depend on the length of the wedding day, the number of photographs needed, the editing time, and the location of the wedding. My most popular wedding collection starts at $4000 and includes up to 8 hours of photography coverage, a complimentary bridal & engagement session, an online gallery, and high-res digital files.
To enhance the overall experience, my higher-end packages may include more hours, a second photographer and/or assistant, rehearsal dinner coverage, bridal boudoir coverage, a wedding album, and/or a boxed set of proof prints (so your precious photographs don't have to live on the computer). I am a full-service photographer and also offer professional prints, canvases, and albums.
Yes! I offer a range of customizable photography packages to suit your needs. My elopement collections start at $3000.
I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and signed contract to secure your booking. The remaining balance will be due one month before the wedding day. I accept cash/check, Apple Pay, Venmo, Zelle and all major credit cards, especially your fiance's.
I'll put a soft hold on your wedding date for 3-5 days after our consultation, but after that, I'll either need the signed contract and payment or you risk losing your date.
I am based in Tampa Florida and yes, I travel. You won't even need to twist my arm or anything. Whether it's a bachelorette party in Nashville, an elopement in Hawaii, or just your annual family pictures at your next vacation spot, I'm always willing to go that extra mile...quite literally. Contact me and give me all the details and we'll put together a custom quote.
" Lynnette is absolutely AMAZING! She made taking pictures so comfortable for the both of us and was always so professional and kind to not just us, but to our friends and family as well. She made shooting my bridals, rehearsal dinner, and wedding day so easy and pain-free."
