Under Construction


Hey there! I'm Lyndsey.

To simplify, I'm a cowboy's wife, ranch-kid mama, rural living home-maker (hallelujah Amazon Prime!) and traveling photographer capturing the love & life stories of our western culture. Welcome to my blog!

Traveling to California for this couple’s ranch engagement was so completely worth it! Besides the fact that Curtis and Lauren are such a handsome couple I was so tickled about the water, green and flowers everywhere! Something this southwest girl doesn’t get to play in very much! 

Through a friend of a friend on Instagram, two years ago Curtis saw a picture of Lauren. Determined to meet this gal, he stopped by where he thought she worked whenever he was in the area and bought a rope hoping to bump into her…many times. As the new owner of a pile of ropes he didn’t need, and still having not “bumped” into Lauren, he finally got brave enough to send her a message on social media. The rest is history. I laughed so hard as they told me the story. I wanted to call him an internet creeper…but I couldn’t because Nelson and I had a similar start to our relationship. 

These two complement each other so perfectly and made capturing their love such a joy! I am so very honored that they chose me to be their engagement and wedding photographer and I really (REALLY) can’t wait for their wedding day! 

Ps. I can’t even handle how beautiful this custom ring is by Laddan Ledbetter
