“All the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.” - Leo Tolstoy
It’s pretty easy to come by a photographer who can take your traditional staged wedding photographs. What sets Lindley apart from everyone is her ability to capture all those moments that otherwise get un-noticed, the subtle details. These are the photographs that my family especially holds dear. Lindley is able to capture individuals in their true element. There is a photo of my Papa that she took during the ceremony in which he was laughing, completely reflecting his personality. It is the way I will forever remember my Papa. Her photography brings the people in the photos to life because she is able to sneak in those shots while you’re in your natural element. While she was at our wedding she felt like family. She was professional, kind, funny, sweet, thorough, and patient. I don’t know how she does it, but I am beyond thankful she was there to capture the special moments. There is nobody better out there.
The weather for my outdoor wedding wasn’t what I expected, freezing cold and snowing, but Lindley helped calm my nerves and used the bad weather to our advantage to create absolutely perfect photos. I am somewhat camera shy and not very creative but Lindley came with amazing photo ideas and helped me feel comfortable and at ease. She was fun, easy to work with and extremely talented! She not only helped us stay on track with the posed photos but truly captured the emotions of the day with the candid photos. Despite the weather it was the best day of my life and I have incredible photos to help me always remember every detail.
To anyone in need of anything from senior pictures, to professional headshots or family portraits, I can confidently recommend Lindley Battle Photography. Not only was the photo session well organized and clear, but it was also enjoyable. I first sought out Lindley for my daughter’s senior pictures, and after seeing the amazing work she did for that I requested her again, and she has now done two separate family portrait sessions for us as well.
In our most recent family portrait session, Lindley was poised and very confident in her vision of our family’s photo session. Her goal was to capture our family in the crazy, chaotic and realistic state it is, and that is exactly what she did. The photos Lindley captured highlighted the personalities of each family member as she encouraged us to laugh and have fun with one another while she just sat back and did her best to photograph us just being us. Unlike some other professional photography companies, never once did Lindley try and stage our family in order to find the “perfect picture,” but instead she managed to create these seemingly perfect photos by encouraging us to be natural and comfortable with just being ourselves.
Lindley is the only photographer you'll ever need. I have been lucky enough to work with her twice so far and my only regret is not finding her sooner. She combines her genuine care for her clients with creativity and professionalism that is a breath of fresh air in the industry. Her friendly personality and love for her craft make it easy to put all of your trust in her. Lindley has made what was already a special memory even better, just by being a part of it.
Lindley intuitively seems to know just what you need even if you don’t always know exactly what you’re looking for with photos. I love that when she takes photos of me and I look at them I see the most beautiful interpretation of me. Lindley seems to see the inner me, the way I see myself when I feel beautiful and she draws it out into the frame. She is so easy to work with, I give minimal directions of what I’m looking for, let her do her thing and it’s always magic!
