Friends laugh when they talk about us. They say they've heard us exclaim, "Man! That's some pretty light!" so often, it'll be etched on our gravestones. You can't blame us. Once you learn how to see it, the search for it becomes addicting. And when you find it, it's exhilarating. Photo nerds much? Yeah.

The thing about searching for pretty light, is that you can do it anytime your eyes are open. Between the two of us, you can safely say we've had over 150,000 hours of practice. I read once that it takes practicing for 10,000 hours to be an expert at something. Basically, you can trust we'll put you in the prettiest light you've ever seen  (well, you might not actually be able to see it, but we will) and it makes all the difference in the world.

With a great sense of humor and adaptability, she's able to maintain a genuinely real vibe during shoots which in turn is reflected in the images. Mandy is determined. She dives deep into any project that she's working on, set out to capture the style, beauty, aura, and fragility that her artistic eye catches in each moment. Both Mandy and Lindsay are lighthearted, honest, and so easy to talk to and work with and they're gorgeous, just another plus!"

LUMI Photography was founded when we met and fell in love in 2009. We are opposites in so many ways, but completely connected over photography and have been shooting together since the beginning.

We're  spoiled by the food, people, art, atmosphere and light in Sacramento, CA. We love living here and we also love to travel. Our cameras are our constant carry-on's and we've photographed weddings, restaurants, boutiques, portraits, travel, and fashion all over the world. Our favorite place is the next one on

We both love the water. Surfing, diving, floating-give us an ocean, lake, or river and we're in it faster than you can say skinny-dip. We also love photographing it. Waves mystify and we'll take sunbathing on the beach any day over just about anything else.

THE COAST, THE LAKE, THE RIVER

Travel is a big one. We heard about pomelo.com from our wedding photographer and it's changed our lives. You can get crazy inexpensive flights through those guys. Now, we can go almost anywhere we want! 

TRAVELING

As artists and entrepreneurs, we get to make our own schedule, choose who we want to work with, and be challenged creatively, logically, and physically. We also get to be a part of the best day in peoples' lives and wouldn't have it any other way.
