December 11th, 2022. My last wedding of the year. We almost had snow. Ended up with a little sprinkle of rain, with a smidge of sunshine.
The last time I was at the Manor House, I was attending a friend’s wedding as a guest. I sat in the Atrium, watching my friends exchange vows, thinking, “man, what a perfect space to be a photographer in.” 20 years later, it was my time to shine!
Kendra and Branden. What a beautiful couple. I met Branden a few years back, while photographing his brother’s wedding. His family was incredibly welcoming back then, so I knew I would be in good company this time around as well. Kendra and I met for the first time only a few weeks ago; but when she walked in, decked out in Christmas flare, I knew that we would get along just fine. The two together made for some great photo opportunities. (Pulp Fiction fans take note: they nailed their introduction.) Their excitement for the day and their love for each other was screamingly obvious from the moment I met up with them.
Please enjoy this collection from their wedding day.
Man, I love a good backyard wedding! There’s a special uniqueness with every intimate house held event. Shantel and Nick’s wedding this past Saturday fell on a day of perfectness. The weather was perfect. The Fall colors peaked early. Perfectly. There was a perfect chaos in such a joyful event. The couple was perfect. And they were covered in love and surrounded by a perfect gathering of friends and family.
Please enjoy my collection of images from Shantel and Nick’s perfectly beautiful day.
Congratulations to the happy couple and Cheers! to so many magical years to come.
It was a little rainy in Indiana on Saturday, October 2nd. The drive took a little longer than anticipated. But the day was basically perfect.
I know these people. These are some of my favorite people. The younger brother to my best friend; I’ve known this groom since he was a baby. I’ve known the bride for years. Not as many, but YEARS. We’ve all shivered our butts off at Kings Island’s Haunt. And more recently, braved one of those 95 degree, 100% humidity, beautiful (insert eyeroll) Cincinnati Summer days for some engagement portraits.
I am so honored to have been asked to photograph their big (finally) wedding day.
Congratulations to Jordan and Eric!
-Love, Lindsey and Tiffany

And Jill is a dear friend of mine. Jill and I met many years ago at the Asian Food Festival (she is a FANTASTIC henna artist, you should check her out -> Jaiswal Designs.) We came together over the years to collaborate on our Henna for Heroines project (you should also check that out.)
But this isn’t about us. This is about John.
I met John this past week, down on his farm in Butler, Kentucky. I was invited down to capture some images of John on his farm, hanging out with family members, showing off some farm equipment, and introducing me to some farm animals. If you’ve ever seen “A Dog’s Purpose” or “A Dog’s Journey,” John even has his own “Boss Dog.”
“John Acton, age 82 is a two-time cancer survivor. He has been a farmer all of his life. Born and raised on a farm in Butler, Kentucky, he went on to buy his own farm of 120 acres in the same town. For 30 years he also worked all over the country for AT&T and served 30 years in the Army Reserve retiring as a First Sergeant. He has spent his retirement working his farm of cows, horses, ducks, chickens, donkeys and goats. He still lives with four generations of his family in his 150 year old farmhouse house that he rehabbed himself. Although he recently lost his wife of 55 years, he is the father of four, grandfather of six and great-grandfather of ten. He still likes to spend his days driving around on his farm on his beloved John Deere Tractor or riding around his hills on his gator with his great-grandkids and his favorite dog, Sydney, riding shotgun.”
The night kicked off with a Survivor’s lap around the track; followed by the Survivor dinner, additional track laps, some dancing, some carnival games, and a lot of general fun. In total, the event helped raise over $68K!
And I’m totally going to admit that while watching all of the fun, I found myself a wee bit nostalgic for my high school years. Note: I did say “wee bit.”
I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that fun was had by all.

The Josephina, Dry Ridge KY
Saturday in Dry Ridge started as an overcast (always rain-threatening, but mostly dry) day with temps in the mid-50s. Quite pleasant and balmy for the middle of December. For the most part, the rain held off for the first half of the day. We were able to get the first glimpse and some bride/groom portraits taken ahead of the rain. As soon as we started with the wedding party, the drops started to fall. And man did they fall hard. And never did they let up.
Dana’s and David’s wedding was a beautiful event, rain and all. Please enjoy some images from their very special day!
Congratulations and Best Wishes to the happy couple!
