really truly love weddings, that should be clear. But even more, I love couples and hearing their stories and getting to share in the sweetness of their wedding day. I've been photographing weddings for 13 years( That's about 400 weddings... - I started at 19 and I do not miss being asked how old I am ;) - and really it's still new every week to me. Every love story is beautiful and I aim to put my 100% into capturing it in all of it's realness and honesty. I'm laid back, laugh easily and use lots of exclamation points and smiley faces in communications! I definitely don't want to just be another check off your wedding vendor to do list, I want to know about you guys and what makes you! I love my couples and so many of my clients have become close friends :)

 When I create an image of a couple in love, I hope to be creating a piece of art - a painting in light, love, and a forever relationship. I want you to look at your pictures years from now and say YES. That is US. That's how he looks at me still and that's the way our hands fit perfectly together and there's that crazy hair that never quite stays in place...
My style is pretty much everything natural, woodsy, and floral. I LOVE the mountains - lakes, ferns, pines, oaks - the north woods and the Northwest - I'm an outdoorsy girl through and through and I definitely bring that love of nature to my photo shoots.

 I'm completely inspired by couples with a unique and creative vision for their wedding day; couples who are simply and madly in love and cannot wait to make their relationship a forever one. I believe that making weddings completely about you as a couple and what you love is important to the creative process. I'd be delighted to create beautiful,unique images for you and your beloved!

This wedding-loving little lady has been shooting with and for me for 6 years now.  I am so blessed to have her as part of my business and love when we shoot a wedding together, though often she's been snatched up  (yep! our business can often times take TWO weddings on a day, with Casey and myself each lead shooting a wedding) I do all of the editing work so everything is seamlessly "Deidre Lynn" in style.  She's all about the candid moments, has no problem getting up in the moment and capturing it up close and personal, and you'll often find her weeping openly during speeches and mother/son dances ;) Here's a few links to some of her work!

I had an AMAZING experience using Deidre as my engagement picture photographer and wedding photographer. Her style is so romantic and beautiful and I am obsessed with it. I had friends and family tell me that the photographs looked like they could be in a magazine because she captured such unique pictures in such an artistic way. Even more, Deidre is an extremely sweet person and always made me feel comfortable, which isn't always easy to do when you're posing for photographs. She made me feel confident and made the entire experience fun. I can't say enough wonderful things about Deidre and her photographs and I'm so happy we chose her for our wedding. I would definitely recommend using Deidre!!
