Hi! I’m Lyndi, a photographer based in Bluffton, South Carolina with a passion for capturing beauty with my camera.


I was born in Atlanta, Georgia but moved to Greenville, South Carolina when I was 10. I've also lived in Alabama and Tennessee so I consider myself a well-rounded Southern woman. Although I love all the southern states, South Carolina is home for me.


I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and have always had a primal need to create. In 2006, I graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting.  Although my background is in painting, I have enjoyed photography as my main concentration for the past 10 years. The camera enables me to instantly capture everything from the splendor of nature, to the innocence of a child, to the love of a family, and allows me to share these things with others.

A few of my favorite things:

    My Handsome Husband

    Our beautiful baby girl, Eve

    Oliver (my cocker spaniel)

    Dry Humor


    Interior Design

    Good Food
    DIY Projects (that actually work)

I was married in August of 2014 and together, my husband and I relocated to Bluffton from Greenwood, South Carolina. Before moving, I had the pleasure of working for jon o. holloway for five years. jon (always lowercase, that's his trademark) has been such a tremendous inspiration to me over the years. Pretty much everything I know about photography I learned from him. He is a truly phenomenal artist and photographer. You can read more about jon here.


I have years of experience with commercial work, portraits, commissions, event coverage, etc…pretty much everything! If you have a special project in mind, portraits you need taken, or an upcoming event, I am willing to work within a budget and sincerely look forward to any photographic challenge.



"To me, photography is an art of observation.

It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...

I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
