How should I choose my wedding photographer?
Your wedding photographer should have already been recognized by his colleagues, the community and the press as an award winning photographer, if you expect perfection in your images on that day. We have been recognized as the Best by the Knot, the Brides Choice award from the Wedding Wire, the WASHINGTONIAN, Bride & Groom Magazine, and Northern Virginia Magazine. Check the better business bureau before you hire a photographer. We are a blemish free company and members of the BBB. Our goal is to see that smile on your face and tears in your eyes as you relive your wedding day through our images. Be sure the photographer has had many years of experience and that the photographer you hire is the one that is going to show up.
Do I get 2 photographers?
The answer depends on the package you have created. There is an option to choose Lyn or Karen Lindberg with an associate photographer or, your best option, is the premiere team of Lyn and Karen Lindberg together. As a synchronized team Lyn and Karen can capture your event with a his and hers perspective and the ability to have Karen with the girls and Lyn with the guys prior to the event, to capture the excitement of getting ready
What is your style? Will I get formal group shots, as well as photojournalism?
We prefer to blend all four types of coverage, that being, photojournalistic, traditional, editorial, as well as artistic. Formal group shots are a must at a wedding. It’s a rare opportunity, when family and friends are gathered together in the same place, so you’ll want an experienced photographer to capture them all standing in their best postures with the best lighting and grouped according to the relationship to the couple. Although, we try to encourage you to keep that list as short as possible, so your guests can go enjoy their cocktail hour, we will set up as many groupings as you request. After the formal session is complete and we encourage some fun pictures of the wedding couple and the wedding party. At the reception we, unobtrusively, stand back and capture all the special moments, that tells your story from beginning to end.
Why are the best photographers so expensive?
You’re not just paying for the piece of paper the picture comes on. You’re paying for the use of the best photography equipment, the most experienced photographer, the artistic point of view, the years of experience and the 30 + hours of after production involved in editing, posting online and designing a perfect wedding album or portrait for your wall. Mr. Lindberg has over 30 years of photography experience and Karen Lindberg has had 15 years, so they can photograph in any given light situation. We will be sure every image is perfect and that you will get an unlimited amount of pictures. We also provide you with extra lighting to be sure a large ballroom can be properly lit up when taking images, therefore, no dark backgrounds are in the pictures.
How is an organized list of portraits accomplished, it all seems overwhelming?
Having photographed close to 1000 weddings, we are very adept at organizing groups in a manner that moves the bride very infrequently. This way, we don’t have to keep re-arranging the bridal gown. You are provided a form to fill out everyone’s names in your family and wedding party, then another list of ever possible scenario of groupings. You just check off what you would like and we will arrange it.
What is your rate for wedding photography?
We prefer to personalize each wedding passage to our couples desires, creating an easy way to hire your photography team. You will be hiring amazingly talented photographers based on the number of hours you would like them to work for you. Then take a look at the wedding album options and choose which one and how many images you would like to be designed into an heirloom to last forever in the family. December -February weddings do get a 10% discount; as well as Friday weddings. Wedding coverage can begin as low as $2795.00.
Do I get my negatives?
Yes you do, but they are now digital. About 2-3 weeks after your event is posted online, we will send you your high resolution DVD with a release so that you can print your own personal pictures right away!
Do you have a professional contract?
Yes, we do have a professional contract, the lingo of which is very layman friendly. This is where you’ll put your contact information, wedding date times and the package details.

You can enjoy your images in color, sepia or black and white, if you wish.
Engagement photography is a low pressure opportunity for the couple and the photographer to get to know each other in a relaxed environment. We do this with a mix of portraits that are traditional, fun and artistic in nature. A variety of poses will be created for you and with your suggestions.
