The darling Lindsay Madden is getting ready to take over our Instagram this week. Lindsay lives and works in the New York City and The Hamptons, photographing weddings there and far and capturing scenes in the stunning light of her big city on a regular basis. (Can you tell we’re a little envious?) One scroll through her own Instagram feed tells her tale—strolls with her dog and an affection for life lived sweetly, in demeanor and pace. She admits she often gets a serious case of wanderlust, and travel is high on her perks as a photographer after six years in business, but her favorite location by far is right on the couch with the two loves of her life; her husband and their adorable goldendoodle. Y’all check out her posts on our feed this week.
IFL – How did photography become a part of your life?
LM – I honestly can’t remember a time when photography was not a part of my life. I grew up in a household where everything was captured. From lazy Sundays at home to world travels and everything in between, my early life had quite the visual paper trail. My parents encouraged me to live in the present, but to never forget the past & I honestly believe photography is the best way to accomplish this.
IFL – What/who/where gets you inspired?
LM – True love, the world & beautiful light!
IFL – Why film?
LM – Film has depth. Film is romantic. Film can be imperfect. Film is honest. Film will always & forever be an extension of who I am as an artist.
IFL – What’s your favorite film stock?
LM – Fuji 400h. The way this film stock catches light is beyond words. It’s pure magic!
IFL – Do you travel often for work?
LM- I travel about 40% of the time for what I shoot. I’m inspired by the world around me so when I am asked to photograph in places that take me around the world, I’m truly grateful.
What makes you feel awesome?
My family. Puppy snuggles. Sunshine. Belly laughs. Chocolate.
Favorite thing about your current home/town.
The energy, the passion & the attitude will always make NYC great. I’m lucky to live here.
What makes you dance? Do you dance?
I love to dance. In fact, I’ll dance to anything! My husband & I have dance parties in our apartment at least a couple times a month. It’s just the two of us, but it’s one of the things we do in our marriage that makes us blissfully happy.
Do your kids/family think photography is cool or nerdy?
While I don’t have children yet, I do have a dog that thinks photography is pretty cool.
