Deeply inspired by nature & the environment surrounding us, I want my work to embody a natural & earthy essence.
Capturing raw emotions & pure moments, I strive to create memories for others that will last a lifetime.
I’m here to capture the candid moments – from the laughter, the tears, down to every last detail.
Hi there! I’m Lindsey (“Lensy”) Michelle – a queer, Boston-based photographer with a soft spot for intimate weddings, elopements, and pretty much any celebration (micro or ginormous) where the couple decided to put what they wanted above anything else. In the words of Aretha Franklin: “What you want? Baby, [you] got it!”
My style is a mix of candid and directed coverage that seeks to amplify and celebrate what makes each couple unique instead of making them look like everyone else. But don’t worry – If the thought of “candids” makes you think, “but we’re awkward.” Not to fear! I gotcha on directing the shots that need a little extra TLC. But honestly, I believe that fabulous candids can come easily if we work hard on planning a day that’s actually enjoyable and stress-free!
Contrary to what you might expect, I try not to enter any of my sessions or weddings with a “go-to shot list” or assumptions about what your love might look like in a photograph. I mean, how could I know? Rather, we’ll try on a bit of everything to see what feels right within your own relationship. Eventually, we’ll hit a grove of what feels like you, and THAT is when the real magic happens.
If I had to describe my work in one phrase, it would be: Honest and quirky – with a bit of an edge.
There is a magic that happens on a wedding day. Everyone is more beautiful, colors are brighter, smiles are bigger. It is one of my greatest pleasures in life to be able to capture a couple’s wedding and keep their memories alive.
I’m so happy to be a part of and be able to serve the LGBTQ+ community. Love is Love is Love.
Hi there! I’m Allie, your intimate wedding & elopement expert + cheerleader. Photographing love stories is what makes my heart sing! I’m here to help you plan YOUR perfect wedding day. Let’s include the details that make your relationship special – your dog or cat, where you had your first date, your favorite local coffeeshop, your love of kayaking or hiking or art museums, your favorite song – and craft the BEST day ever to celebrate the two of you and your love.
My home base is in beautiful Mystic, Connecticut. I serve all of New England, and am available to travel wherever your next adventure leads! My style is warm, authentic, and candid. I’m also ordained, so if you want someone who can hike to the top of a mountain with you, photograph your ceremony, AND make it official – I’m your gal!
You and your sweetheart are preparing to celebrate an amazing moment – when you vow to share your lives together. Your relationship is one of a kind, full of sunrises and heartbeats, happy tears, road trips, stories that still make you laugh, and knowing a million little things about each other. Those details deserve to be captured, by somebody who fully and authentically celebrates your love, and I would be honored to be the photographer documenting those memories for you. I am proud to be a Certified Inclusive Professional by EquallyWed.

You’re getting married! Congratulations! I’m a queer wedding photographer based on Cape Cod and I would be thrilled to work with you! I have over a decade of award-winning experience as a professional photojournalist and I have been in business as Salty Broad Studios for two years. As a member of the LGBT community, I understand how exciting and comforting it is to work with vendors who are “part of the family.” Not only will you be supporting a business certified by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, but you will feel at ease knowing that you are working with an experienced professional that will deliver the highest quality pictures and customer service.
With Salty Broad Studios you will get creative, moment-driven pictures that tell your wedding day story. Leading up to the wedding, I deliver superior communication. I answer emails, texts and phone calls as soon as I receive them. On your wedding day, you will receive friendly, down-to-earth service! I strongly believe that your photo session should be fun! We should be laughing and enjoying the day! After the wedding, you will receive a sneak peek right away so you can share your joy with your friends and family and your complete final edit will be delivered within 30 days.
So, let’s chat! I love hearing about how my couples met! My wife and I met at Girls Pint Out, a ladies beer club, and had our first kiss on Cinco de Mayo, which is now our wedding anniversary. (yes, we had a Cinco de Mayo wedding).
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I have been working as a photojournalist since 2005 and I started shooting weddings in 2007.
How would you describe your style?
As a photojournalist, my emphasis is on capturing candid moments and making you feel comfortable. My goal is to capture pictures that reflect who you are as a couple. As part of my photojournalistic approach, I also believe that portraits and family formals should be an integral part of your collection. I urge my clients to set aside time on their wedding day for family formals and a private portrait session after the ceremony. Ultimately, how you spend your time on your wedding day is entirely up to you but investing in quality photography will provide lasting, tangible memories for your entire lives.
How many photos will I receive? How do you edit your photos? What’s the turnaround?
Generally, most couples receive over 600 edited images from their wedding day but it depends on how many hours you book. I pledge to digitally deliver those images to you 1 month after your wedding date. With your permission, I often post a sneak peek gallery on the Salty Broad Instagram page. I edit the best photos and weed out redundancies. You deserve to have only the best! I also believe in clean post-production practices. I am not going to disguise your natural beauty with trendy filters.
Do you ever use an assistant or second shooter?
I usually work alone, but it depends on the wedding. If there are many locations and hundreds of guests, I will likely bring on a second shooter.
Do you cover weddings off-Cape?
Yes, I book weddings any where in New England and beyond. If travel beyond a 60-mile radius is necessary, a travel fee will be assessed. If your wedding requires an overnight stay, the cost of the accommodations will be added to the package price.
If you are planning a destination wedding, count me in! I love to travel will and would be happy to be part of the festivities. For pricing info, check out my premium packages (Chapoquoit, Dowses and Race Point). Travel and overnight stays can be included in the package price in place of second shooter and/or an engagement shoot. Let’s talk to make sure the package price point works for your occasion!
What if it rains?
I am prepared for anything and everything. I always travel with a portable strobe kit and several flash units. If the weather brings us indoors, I have plenty of lighting devices to make you and your guests look great.
What kind of cameras do you use?
I use professional level Nikon camera equipment with a wide variety of lenses and lighting.
Who does your printing?
I use White House Custom Colour, a premier photo finishing lab trusted by industry professionals around the world. I highly recommend ordering printed products through my site for the sake of investing in quality and posterity. I keep my print prices reasonable because I am passionate about excellent presentation and accessibility.
What do you require for booking?
The signing of a contract and a 35% deposit.
We’re a team of creatives fascinated by stories and by love. Getting to know what that looks like in each individual relationship, seeing the tells and nuances between different people, getting to know how it all was built and developed into a partnership. Crafting timeless content through vulnerability, authenticity, and tons of film, we love a good adventure.
When your images are delivered, the goal is for you to feel all those same emotions — like a deja vu to your wedding day.
We’ve been a part of weddings everywhere from the tiny elopements atop of Burroughs Mountain in Mount Rainier National Park, to huge weddings at Newport Beach House, Newport RI. We’re prepared and ready for your wedding, however you want to get married.
It’s like a graceful ballet of cameras and people. Working as a team, consistently, means we know how to work well with each other, and also what our favorite coffee orders are in a pinch. The team knows how to support each other to best support you.
We know what’s expected of us collectively and individually to ensure your vision is at the forefront of each of our minds. This allows our team to navigate the day capturing all the moments you’re hoping for without stepping on each other.
Our team is a diverse, and inclusive group of folks, who regularly take time to educate ourselves on the intersections of oppression. We value learning more about:
— being trauma aware
— 2slgbtqai+ affirming
— breaking down our biases constructed by societal norms
— visibility + representation
— and so much more…
Combined we’ve done training with folks like Troy Williams of Simply Troy, Terri Hofford of Boudoir University, Jasmine Villanueva of Vivid Vibes Events, Steel and Flint Society, Fire and Ice, Jonas Peterson, Jesus Rodriguez of Chuy Photo, Sam Hurd of Sam Hurd Photography, and so many more.
Our team members have been featured on podcasts like Young and Rejected, Drink + Discuss, Talks with Strangers.
