lacey and ryan - a wedding at middle beach lodge

The day was a bright cloudy day at Middle Beach Lodge. A beautiful resort five minutes outside of downtown Tofino. The tide was on its way out and the bridal party was getting ready in their beachside cabins. When I arrived, Lacey’s smile lit up the room and she gave me a huge hug. The rest of the day went exactly like that. Big smiles, so much love, and we had a blast the entire day.

Lacey and Ryan were such a joy to work with. My cheeks were hurting by the end of the day from smiling, laughing, and the fun of being part of their beautiful day. Thank you to Middle Beach Lodge, and a big thanks to Lacey and Ryan for having me be part of this wedding full of love.

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!
