I’m a Virginia based wedding & portrait photographer, wife, and a fur-mom who believes that photographs are a great reminder of happy moments with the people close to our hearts.

Hi, I'm Lyn!

Allie and Jake are just one of those couples who make every shoot fun, perfect, and such an adventure. I had the privilege of meeting Allie and Jake early in 2021 – Allie and I became friends almost instantly so I knew this wedding was going to be one for the books! Prior to their wedding, I photographed their engagement session and Christmas photos with their fur babies so they were pros when it came time for their wedding photos.

Unfortunately, the day didn’t start the way we wanted it to due to the weather. Though we were trying to make the best of the situation, it was pouring rain so we were limited with what we could do. BUT, just like a scene out of a movie, when it came time for Allie and Jake to see each other for the first time the sun came out and gave us a beautiful ray of sunshine; the timing could not have been more perfect! Their first look was a photographer’s dream and everything I was hoping for. I loved how they both looked so happy and excited to see each other after being apart for a long time! Jake could not get over how beautiful Allie was in her wedding dress (and I have to agree with Jake!). This moment will be one of my favorite moments from this wedding day! 

After the perfect first look, it was time for the perfect ceremony and, fortunately, all of their beloved friends and families came despite the crazy weather. The ceremony was held at Holiday Lake in Appomattox – I loved that Allie and Jake chose this location because it was where they took their first photo together as a couple; it felt like their love story was coming full circle (we even recreated the photo during their portrait session!!). Once the ceremony ended I headed off with the newlyweds to capture their portraits before heading to the reception. In true Allie & Jake fashion, we wrapped up their portrait session with their signature champagne pop photo just like we did for their engagement and Christmas photos. 

The reception was a blast and the dance floor was packed the entire night as Allie and Jake celebrated and danced the night away with their friends and family. Though there were some great dance moves from the crowd, the real showstopper was their wedding cake which featured their adorable fur babies! Allie and Jake, it was such an honor being chosen to capture your special day and provide you with photos you can treasure forever. I wish you the best as you start this next chapter in your lives!

If you are looking for a photographer that has a great personality, experienced with attention to detail, and is fun to work with, then Lyn is your person! She arrived on time and immediately began to work. She was great at directing everyone on how to pose and had great patience dealing with my chaotic family! She took numerous photos and she was able to send me sneak peaks in less than 24 hours!"

"We loved the photos and we're glad we chose Lyn as our photographer!

- ALLISON C.

When planning a wedding it is so scary to hire vendors and have all the trust in them that they will do a good job and from the second I met Lyn Waldrop I knew she would have my best interest in mind!"

"Lyn also did an amazing job at capturing our real emotions which I am so grateful for!

She was great at communicating so I wasn’t stressed about how I should dress, and when and where to go. I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera but I’d do another shoot with her any day! She had tons of poses and a plan of what we were doing so I was at ease knowing these pictures would look beautiful."

“Lyn was SO energetic and made the experience so much more fun
