landon + evie - mendocino, california coast adventure session | destination california photographer

Have you ever had a moment that left you speechless, just completely robbed your brain of all coherent thought because what you were witnessing was just too wonderful? I have, with Evie and Landon in the tiny town of Mendocino, California. 

These two met while studying at Bethel School of Ministry in California. Evie is a Midwestern girl after my own heart, from Ohio. Landon, a surfer boy from Southern California. Over coffee, they took turns telling me how they met, and how Landon pursued Evie's heart. They walked me through their story of meeting through music, hilarious miscommunications, a random Facebook message, and eventually, a coffee shop date that changed everything. My heart absolutely melted as I heard their story.

Afterwards, we headed over to Mendocino Headlands State Park where I photographed them on the gorgeous California coast as the sun set. I don't know how to describe the feeling of watching two people who care so deeply for each other just BE in front of a view that took my breathe away. I can tell these two showcase the love of Jesus in their relationship, and so maybe that's exactly what I was feeling that evening in Mendocino. The raw, pure, undying love of Jesus on full display as I caught it all on camera. 

I hope as you view their gallery, you can feel His love too. I hope their gallery reminds you that true love DOES exist, it's out there, it's real, and it's 100% available for everyone. 

Landon & Evie, you both take my breathe away. Your love is unreal, and I will never, ever forget our evening on the Northern California coast. 

After our session, Evie wrote me the sweetest review I've ever read. I want to share it with you guys because her experience reflects my heart and soul for every couple I get the pleasure of meeting and shooting. Her words warmed my heart, and remind me how unbelievably blessed I am to get to work with such amazing couples.

"Lindsey is wild and free. She knows how to make you instantly comfortable - as if you've been childhood friends through diapers, mud pies, awkward middle school dances, high school friend drama... and somehow she's still by your side, but this time, she's capturing your love story with the skill of a goddess. 
I genuinely cannot recommend her enough. She's skilled at what she does, her love for the authentic and raw is evident, and she's not about to finish a session without going above and beyond for her clients. There isn't a single photo in my session that doesn't ooze professional perfection. Lindsey's able to pull out the real you in all of her work. She puts her heart and soul into what she does, and it shows in every detail... from the way she interacts with you, to the quality of photos, to the speed that she delivers your session! I swear it'll be impossible to find a single flaw in this woman and her work.
Lindsey, if I could give you more than 5 stars I'd do it in a heartbeat. I can't wait to work with you again, girl. 
And to the rest of the world...
Do yourself a huge favor and book this wonder-woman, free-spirit, joy-bomb, real-and-raw, it-can't-get-any-better-than-her, photographer. I promise you will never in your life regret it." - Evie Rupp
