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!

Charlottesville, Virginia, and the surrounding towns certainly have a great selection of vineyards that host weddings (and they’re all so beautiful it can be hard to choose!). Located in Crozet Virginia, just 15 min from downtown Charlottesville, is one of my favorite vineyards for weddings: Kings Family Vineyards. As you could probably guess by the name, the 327- acre property has been owned by the King Family for over 20 years. ). “It is a very fun family-oriented business, they genuinely treat everyone here as their family” – Juan Delfin (Event Coordinator). A truer statement could not have been said, I’ve met quite a few staff members at Kings Family including the owner and they were all incredibly nice and welcoming.

One of the best things about this venue is the scenery. Being located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this venue boasts stunning views of the vines and mountains (is there a better combination?!). And of course, in case of rain, the Kings Family Vineyards has a plan B & C so that your day can go on without a hitch. Another huge perk is the flexibility that they offer to couples. Couples are able to choose their own vendors with the exception of the caterers (those must be chosen off the preferred vendor list that the venue provides) and wine; since they are a vineyard they do require couples to use their wine for the reception, but it is at a discount. In addition, they do provide reception tables and ceremony and reception chairs so one less thing to worry about when planning!

King Family Vineyards offers you the perfect space for your wedding. The outdoor views stun and amaze. Indoors, you’ll find spacious rooms that feel both rustic and polished. The space can accommodate up to 200 people indoors with still having space for a band and generous space for a dance floor.

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!


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
