the unembellished, in-between moments

a place for real connection

Hello, I am Lindsay Melanie

More About Me


I'm a Southern California based wedding, elopement, and family photographer. You're in the right place if you also value real connection over perfection.

My photography style is photojournalistic, candid, artistic, earthy, and natural. I strive to keep my editing style true to life and representing accurate colors; it’s a really important approach I take so your portraits maintain a timeless and classic look long term. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to capture your life’s fleeting moments.

I am dedicated to capturing your love story.


I'm so glad you're here. I hope you're equally as excited as you take the first step towards everlasting photos that will hopefully litter the walls of your home forever.

At the very least, I will capture priceless and eternal moments. At most, we'll share a unique bond and you'll gain a hype-girl through the experiences we have together.

It's an intimate and sometimes scary thing, letting your guard down to allow an outsider to peer into the lens of your family dynamic. I appreciate and do not take lightly the opportunity

to see you and your relationships in full - the good, the bad, the messy, the beautiful. I vow to give you quality over quantity, always.
