I'm a wedding photographer based in Chicago and traveling anywhere that my camera takes me! Most days you’ll find me tucked away in the corner of a coffee shop working away on my laptop or binge-watching the newest Netflix craze with my husband, Bodie. As a bride-turned-wedding-photographer myself, I understand all of the work, anticipation, and excitement that goes into planning your wedding day. I love connecting with my couples on a personal level and becoming a friend along the way...hearing all about your dating years, your proposal story, and your plans for one of the most precious days of your life! It is my greatest desire that you would feel so very loved and well taken care of from the very first moment we begin chatting about your day all the way through receiving your final gallery.

Welcome, friend! I'm Lindsey, wedding photographer and professional third wheel.

I joke that it's my office because I spend more time working away on my laptop there than anywhere else.

My Favorite Things:

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved photography. Growing up, everywhere I went I always had my bubblegum pink Sony point-and-shoot camera in hand, and almost every square inch of my bedroom walls was covered in 4x6 photographs of my friends. But, it wasn’t until my college years that I really dove deep into my love for photography. During my study abroad semester in Spain, I brought my mom’s DSLR camera to document my travels on more than just an iPhone. With the help of a friend, I learned to shoot in manual mode and was absolutely hooked! After returning home, I took several photo and design classes in college and bought my first "professional" camera. Soon after that, I got a job working for a lifestyle blogger and it was then that I realized that I could turn this passion of mine into a real business.

MY JOURNEY BEGAN WHEN...

01

During my senior year of college, I got engaged to my highschool sweetheart, Bodie! Three of my roommates also were engaged, and we spent our evenings dreaming up our wedding days together. I absolutely loved planning our big day and quickly fell in love with the wedding world. For me, photography was the most important decision that I had to make during the planning process. I knew our wedding photos were going to be the one thing that would last beyond our wedding day and that they would become our first family heirloom. Our photographer not only captured stunning photos of our day, but also became a friend throughout the planning process. After our own wedding, I instantly missed all of the planning, anticipation, and excitement that weddings bring. My obsession with weddings only grew and my dream of becoming a wedding photographer was born!

Later that year, I started working for my own wedding photographer as an assistant. I carried bags and helped where needed while being able to practice my photography skills, learn from her, and experience the photography side of wedding days. After that, I became her consistent second shooter, then began lead shooting weddings as her associate photographer, and finally, Lindsey Taylor Photography was born! In less than a year after officially starting Lindsey Taylor Photography, I took this side hustle full-time and turned it into my new career! But this is so much more than just a career to me, it's my passion! It’s truly the pleasure of a lifetime to capture lifelong memories for my clients and I cannot imagine doing anything else.
