The Roast of Lyndsey & Jana: A Tale of Two Photographers


I cannot believe this day has finally come. I have been looking forward to sharing these images for quite some time now! It seems like they just get better and better each year.

If you’re new to this whole “roast of Lyndsey” blog, I’ll catch you up to date. Basically last year I made a blog post of all the behind the scenes shots from the 2018 wedding season. At the very beginning of the year, I told Jan Jan to get some good shots of me working so I could use them for business purposes. Well, as the year went on I quickly realized that I don’t photograph well while I’m working. So then it just became this giant blog post of ugly pictures, and it was HILARIOUS!

So here we are. It’s 2020 (Happy New Year by the way) and it’s time for a recap of the 2019 season. The more I look at these pictures the more I love them. We live in such an Instagram, Pinterest, filtered world. It’s easy to hide the 3 chins when you add that nice Snapchat filter. I like this post because I want all my clients to know me as me. Unfiltered in all its glory. I have photographer friends that post blogs similar only instead they look super classy and poised. They’re always gracefully throwing veils and directing bridal parties like they should be in some advertisement. Not me. I used to think I looked like a hot Victoria Secret model as I worked. Nope. I look like I ate the Victoria Secret model. But hey, that’s okay! I love what I do and I do it passionately.

So here is your final warning. This blog is full of runny eyeliner, messy buns, hungry Janas, visible thinking faces, outfits that I wear way too often, and sweat. Not the cute glistening sweat either. The rough kind. I hope you enjoy this collage of images! We have loved meeting and working with every single client and family and look forward to this coming wedding season!

It has truly been an amazing year! Thank you to all the wonderful people who included us in their wedding! We are still so honored and grateful!
