I recently had the extreme pleasure of photographing Brendan and Lindsey in San Luis Obispo, CA. They are getting married this May at the very same church they met at and I am the lucky guy that gets to photograph that as well. It’s going to be one amazing, kid-filled party. There are going to be 7 flower girls. That’s right, SEVEN! Lindsey calls them her “flower brigade”. Oh, and, there will be one ring bearer. Just one. (I will pray for him.)
Brendan is a worship leader at his church and also a Civil Engineer. Lindsey is the worlds most capable nanny. Her mother is the Children’s Ministry Director at Grace Church in San Luis Obispo.
When I first met with Brendan and Lindsey, they were very excited about their wedding pictures but unsure about doing an engagement shoot. Since they both live in the Bay Area, there were coordination issues and of course the good ‘ole budget to think about. As you will see below, they did decide to go ahead with the engagement shoot and it was well worth the effort.
We picked a day in late February to shoot. It was a chilly day in San Luis Obispo but, thankfully, Brendan and Lindsey came prepared with jackets and jeans. I had the fortune of having an assistant, Corinne Roberts, with me and all together we had one beautiful shoot.
You can feel the love and mutual respect that comes with being around Brendan and Lindsey. They have their relationship rooted in the strongest of foundations and I am so excited for them.
