Either way, thanks to the lovely bubbly Lindsay for modeling, and Crooked Crown for letting us taste their alcoholic popsicles to celebrate the holiday with a summer vibe this Christmas!
If you haven't checked them out yet, they're located on Spring St. in downtown Charleston <3
What an amazing, friendly, and colorful culture.
I feel like everything I heard about Cuba before I went turned out not to be true.
Except for the vintage cars, there were definitely lots of those!

Interested in what my photos look like before I edit them? Check out a few examples.
For these images, I applied one of my lightroom presets I have made (basically a copy of my settings to save time) and then adjusted the exposure and white balance to fit the particular photo. All in all, it takes about 20 seconds. If I choose to edit skin, eyes, or other parts of a portrait, this would take additional time and I usually prefer to do that in Photoshop.
If you are interested in my Lightroom presets, you can find them for sale over in my shop, for $20
So thankful this year - My work nominated and chose me to go on a free trip to Miami Beach and stay at Fontainbleau! It was a blast.. so much that I hardly took my camera out! I took a little walk down the beach on my last day and got these photos with the goal of getting some tropical themed prints for my Print Store and to hang around my house.
Like any you see? Pick them up at the Print shop!
I recently built a new home in Charleston, SC with the help of Southeastern builders! I wanted to keep everything very bright and clean so that most of the color would come from my style and belongings. Take a look around and let me know what you think, I'm in love!
My good friend Jenn and I took some photos out at Folly Beach this fall.

What a lovely sole Nicole is over at Nicole Mickle Photography! This is the first set of photos I think I actually tried to smile in - which was so awkward at first but now it feels pretty normal :)
Below is a list of the equipment I use. (Updated in July 2017)

This is my second time shooting Susan & I can't get enough of this girl. She's so much fun & truly a pleasure to photograph. This time we went to the Americano, a trendy little diner located in the heart of Mount Pleasant. Every corner turned into the perfect space with the prettiest colors. The green trees, colorful flowers & bright hanging lights made the best background for Susan.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Sam Rueter, a Charleston based artist, in her studio located in the Redux Contemporary Art building. It was so cool to experience first hand how Sam creates these stunning abstract paintings. Her careful choice of color, unique brushstrokes, and strong focus indicated just how passionate about she is about her work. I highly recommend checking out Sam's incredible pieces either at Redux or through her online shop!
The inspiration for this shoot was my black hat from Free People, and this brick wall. That is it. But man did we get a ton of great pics! Check out the gorgeous Susan who strolled some little Charleston alleys with me last week!
One thing I've been doing more of lately is shooting women and every time I do, I realize how in love with it I am! I'm opening up shoots for women of all ages, lets go find some light and make you feel beautiful in your own skin, no matter where you are at in life! Contact me to book a session! Hello@LindseyO.com
I've also been getting questions about doing 1 on 1 photo mentoring to teach people how to use their DSLR and shoot in manual. I'm bringing my session back, if you're interested, check it out here!

Colonia was the CUTEST little town which is accessible via ferry from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The city was full of old cars, historical architecture, and vibrant colors + pastels.
Bodegas Carrau Winery
Here we got to learn all about how they run their family business, the history, the challenges, the domestic sales, and the importation. We also go to tour the winery and get an amazing tasting!
I loved Montevideo! It was much less crowded and a lot cleaner, safer, and more active feeling than Buenos Aires was. They have a beach lining the whole city and it is always full of people on the move!
I spent about 4 days in Buenos Aires, working with businesses in many industries and learning about the economy, challenges, and opportunities the people and businesses deal with on a daily basis.
Check out the photos from a few spots around town!
Oliva & Ryan have been married for almost 2 years now.
Their way of celebrating?
Riding the vespa around the park, feeding the ducks, & popping a bottle of champagne.. makes for the perfect evening if you ask me!

My friend Christopher Dobey (instagram @christopherdobey) tagged along to make a video of a day in my life shooting portraits. Check it out!
Welcome to Cusco, Peru - where the weather hardly changes year round, you're at 11k feet, the air is cold, the beer and wine are plentiful, and guinea pigs are for dinner!
Kristi and Brian brought their family and friends to Sedona, AZ (one of their favorite places to visit) to witness their wedding. They were also kind enough to bring me to photograph it.
The genuine love and friendships these two share is EPIC. I can't say enough positive things.
Check out some of my photos below, and check out more at Lo-Photos.com
From Cusco, it is a 3 hour drive to get to the Vinicunca mountains. This was by far my favorite experience in Peru.
The hike is hard, its about 3 hours each way and goes from 12,000 to 17,000 feet in elevation. This was my first experience with this elevation and the low oxygen levels really take a toll on your ability. At the top of the mountain, I could only take bout 10 steps at a time before having to stop from being dizzy. The views at the top were so incredible and so worth it. What made this day so memorable for me was not only the views but the journey. The hike through the mountains felt so untouched and genuine. We were walking through these people's villages and seeing their daily life the entire way which to me made this day amazing. I've included many photos of the things I saw along the journey, as well as the photos of the rainbow mountain - each outstandingly incredible!
How to get there?
I paid about $35 for a company in Cusco to shuttle us there and back. They also took us to a small village on the way to eat a locally made breakfast (before) and lunch (after). I would definitely recommend booking once you are in Cusco, as some of the companies online are charging $180 for the same exact service. Once you are a bit into the hike, you can pay about $20 to have a horse and guide take you towards Rainbow Mountain and back, where the horse is able to.
OK, can this place be any more magical?!? Maccu Picchu is one of those bucket list travel destinations for me, so when I found out I was going to Argentina, I signed myself up for an extra week in Peru.
To get to Maccu Picchu, you have to fly into Lima, Peru (I suggest staying a while!) and then fly into Cusco, Peru. From Cusco you take a car to Ollantaytambo, located in the Sacred Valley, and the board a train to Aguas Calientes. Here are some of the photos from the trip up.
The Journey from Cusco to Maccu Picchu
And then we arrived at this magical place in the clouds...
Hope you enjoyed these photos! Make sure to check out my print store over at www.LindseyO.com where these will be added soon!
On a last note, visiting Maccu Picchu during rainy season was indescribably lucky. I was there with a handful of people as compared to the 10,000/day that visit during most of the year (the dry months) who are only allowed to stay for 2 hours and must go with a guide. It took a few hours for the clouds to break and rain to stop but I can't image having seen this place any other way.
