get-to-know Lindsay - photographer at Lovesea

Hi! I'm Lindsay, a Tofino-based wedding photographer. I've been based in Tofino for the past seven years and no matter where I go in the world, I am always so grateful to come back home.

I feel it's important to know your photographer, so here's a short story about where I come from. I started to take photos when I was seven years old. My grandfather was a naturalist and photographer. I learned a lot about photographing landscapes and birds while we went on banding trips around BC, Alberta, and the Arctic. He was my hero! After he passed away, I continued to travel and take images. It evolved from birds and landscapes, to people and love in beautiful settings. Now, I am a wedding photographer and, every now and then, I photograph for editorial and commercial projects. Sometimes I get in the water to shoot surfing too!

I've explored Tofino extensively. By foot, off-road vehicles, boat, plane, canoe, all of it! I know the perfect little spots for intimate wedding photos, where the best sunset watching spots are (hint: it's season dependent!),  and where (and when) to find the best acai bowl in town. 

If there is one thing I have learned in my time living in Tofino, it's to have compassion for the land and water we are living and working on. So, we made lovesea wedding photography a 1% for the planet company. Yay! This was a long time coming and I am so happy to have made the leap. 

When I'm not taking images or editing, I go for long beach walks (actually), go surfing, shoot photos with my medium-format film camera, and eat a lot of Chocolate Tofino ice cream. The salted caramel is the absolute BEST. If you ever have questions about where to surf that day or where to get a good snack, I am here for you :). I love to travel and have been to 30 countries in Asia, South America, North America, and Europe. I couldn't tell you what kind of food I like the most, but I'm often seen eating a juicy mango over the kitchen sink. 

Well, that's me! I love stunning scenery, beautiful details, and people in love. I hope you share your love story with me :).

Reach out and ask me anything! 

Best,
