Imagine the warm sun on your face as you pop the champagne and dig in to a gourmet cheeseboard brimming with charcuterie, fresh fruit, and snacks, while you take in the view from a cozy Pendleton Woolen Mills Blanket.
No elopement is complete without taking a moment to snack and nourish your bodies together. All elopements 6 hours and up include a complimentary picnic set up and hand crafted charcuterie spread for you to enjoy while you slow down, pause, and soak in the movement of the day.
Warming up after a day moving around outside is the best way to seal in good vibes from the day. Get cozy under a blanket and snuggle up with your boo beside a crackling fire.
I'm pretty much obsessed with campfires. I refuse to go on any trip without all the essentials to have one. I travel with a propane powered fire bowl, and an aluminum fire tray for a wood burning option, and even a smore compatible wax fueled portable option when fires aren't allowed.
Opt for an evening elopement or book a Fireside Session add on with any package and I'll bring the roasting sticks, smores anyone?
Seal your adventure with a little bit of magic beneath starry, night sky. Appreciating moments of awe and wonder is one of the most nurturing ways to support your spirit, and your connection.
Sip a warming beverage, while you gaze upon a sea of stars. Extend your elopement into wee hours with a milky way shoot at the beach or in the mountains during the summer months and early fall. Experience the bigness of your love surpassed only by the bigness of the universe. Capture it all with a starry night session available as a standalone option or as part of a multi-day elopement package.
Your day has many perspectives. I believe in telling a three dimensional story, which is why all packages 8 hours or more include a second photographer to create a gallery that includes a robust variety of angles and perspectives. There's nothing I love more than bouncing ideas off another creative and collaborating to come up with unique shot ideas. We feed off each other's energy and we can do twice the amount of shooting in half the time.
Between the two of us we can provide a wide assortment of wide angle and close up shots taken from above and below you, not just beside or in front or back of you. As an FAA Certified Drone pilot, if you choose a location outside of a designated wilderness area or National Park, you have the option to capture aerial views.
I'm a registered wedding officiant and can make your marriage legal in the backcountry by signing off on your self solemnizing or private vow exchange ceremony. If needed, witnesses can be provided. If you would rather have a ceremony performed for you, please inquire about having a custom ceremony created just for you with one of my officiant partners.
Make the story of your elopement come alive with videography. While still memories are an amazing way to freeze time, film and video are the perfect way to capture the movement of your day. Photography packages also include animated GIFs,
Please inquire for custom videography packages available to add to any elopement package.
Embark on your journey and cement your bond with an epic adventure
Say I Do ... while you go with the flow and navigate the elements, together as a team
Present in the moment. Alive in your skin. Connected with your partner,
I live in the foothills of the Cascades, just 30 minutes from Snoqualmie Pass and 25 minutes outside of Downtown Seattle.
Get the process started by scheduling a consultation with me to chat through your vision
Choose your location! I can help select the perfect place for you leveraging my relationships with the National Parks, local knowledge and expertise in the Pacific Northwest Region (my home for over 35 years!).
Plan your date based on season, weather, legal requirements, permitting, and lodging requirements.
Finalize logistics with other vendors - (I.e. hair and makeup, florist, catering, etc.)
Show up ready for the best day of your life.
We can choose your date based on past weather patterns to ensure the ideal weather for your day, but Mother Nature can be unpredictable and we can't guarantee how things turn out. In Norway, there's a saying, "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear." I'll work with you to make sure we're equipped for all conditions. I've guided elopements in the rain, snow, and wind and I'm great at shifting the experience to fit whatever Mother Nature throws our way.
I can help with every logistical detail you can imagine. Before I became a photographer full time, I worked in the outdoor recreation and adventure travel space for over ten years. I've run multiple Airbnbs in two different countries and have partnerships with local vendors of all kinds to create every detail you can imagine for your day. Whether you're looking for a catered elopement, live musical performances, hiking proof hair and makeup, custom drinkware or signage, I can help with all the details.
I love to travel! As an adventurous photographer I’m more than happy to travel to you whether you’re in state, out of state, or even out of the country! Travel within 25 miles is complimentary, further distances require a travel fee.
I have the maximum liability insurance for my business as well as equipment insurance.
I shoot with a few different cameras including the Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 6D Mark II, and the Canon 70D. I also work with the highest quality Canon “L” Series lenses.
YES! I can sign off on your vow exchange, or help you find someone officiate for you if you choose not to write your own vows.
Let’s Get Started by filling out the form here. I’ll respond with a questionnaire and a custom brochure based on your unique project, and from there we can set up a call to chat through your questions, and when you’re ready I’ll follow up with a contract and invoice to confirm your booking.
Lindsey is amazing, as is the content she creates. She has an ability to capture not just images, but stories.
I was given the opportunity to work alongside Lindsey in a photography project. Her passion and focus is apparent while she's behind the lens. Working with her was an absolute pleasure and I can't recommend her enough!
I’ve personally known and worked with Lindsey for the past 6 months - she is passionate, talented and creative. Her experience and knowledge and genuine love for her work and her clients are second to none!! I feel so fortunate that I’ve had the opportunity to see the heart and know the story behind LightSource Studio!
Lindsay is a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond for me, is creative and has a good eye for details.
Lindsay provides such a thoughtful service that gets into the nitty-gritty details that will make your images stand out from the competition! She really puts her whole heart into each project!
The beautiful "portrait in the wild" that Lindsey G did for me is one of the best pictures ever taken of me. Seriously. She brought out my joy and captured it on camera. Magic.
Lindsey was great to work with and very professional! Definitely using her again.
Thank you so much Lindsey! We LOVE them! Truly feel like you captured our kid’s personalities!
Thanks very much for a job well done. These are quite literally the best photos we’ve ever received on the Labor Day Half. Thanks so much for making us and our event look good.
Thanks for an awesome album! We really loved your work. We will make sure to recommend you if our friends ever need a photographer to capture their events.
