Wisconsin Portrait Photographer

Hello! My name is Lindsey Van Roy and I am the owner of Lindsey Van Roy Photography and a Wisconsin Portrait Photographer.

I specialize in portrait photography and wedding photography in Wisconsin. My clients describe my images as timeless, classic and elegant. My quaint, charming photo studio in Kimberly not only serves those located in Appleton, Neenah, Menasha, Oshkosh and Green Bay but often serves those in Milwaukee, Madison and Wausau as well. It is not uncommon for people to travel from all over Wisconsin to my photography studio for portraits or to commission me for weddings. As the logo on the front of my photography studio will attest I am locally known as Lindsey Van Roy Photography. The recent abbreviation to LVR is new. I have served Wisconsin and the world (destination wedding photography and portrait sessions in Europe, Central America and Caribbean) with class, care and professionalism for over 16 years.


Finding a photographer who specializes in woman's portraiture, children photography and family portraits with a magazine style flair isn't an easy task, especially in Wisconsin. Don't be fooled by my small town studio location, my art can compete with the best of the big city artists. My goal as a photographer is to elegantly create with style and sophistication - images that will stand the test of time and evoke emotion within.

I specialize in photographing women and those they love. I want to celebrate YOU, your femininity, your family and the relationships you hold dear to your heart. My specialization will come in use if you are looking to hire a photographer for family portraits, professional business headshot, beauty or boudoir session, mother and child session, social media image or complete business branding photography session. I also am honored to be chosen to do a great deal of newborn photography.

Ladies, let's create a work of art - a portrait of you and your legacy. I can't wait to create a complete folio of heirloom portraits for you to cherish for generations. You don't have to worry about posing, styling, hair or makeup. We do it all for you. At LVR we will style your photography session wardrobe, do your hair and makeup, design a one of a kind couture gown, primp, pamper and treat you like gold! You never have to worry about anything... my makeup artist Erin Schmalz of Erin Schmalz Freelance Makeup is one of the very best in the area. If you are not comfortable in front of the camera, it's my fault, not yours. My goal is to make you comfortable, confident and most of all to enjoy every moment while creating your beautiful portraits.


If you've just gotten engaged, congratulations! You are going to have the time of your life planning your wedding! I'm excited for you! You were likely sent to me by a friend or family member or found me on one of those invaluable wedding planning websites such as Wedding Wire or The Knot. Either way, I'm glad you found me and am honored you are taking time to peruse my wedding portfolio.

As an award winning wedding photographer, portrait photographer and a mother of five children, I'm certain you can understand that photographing memories is extremely important to me. So important that one of my life missions is to educate parents on properly using their Nikon or Canon dSLR's to photograph their loved ones. It is for this reason I teach Beginner Photography Classes. Because everyone needs to start somewhere and capturing the most precious moments in our life is the best place to start! I hold classes monthly through the winter time at my photography studio in Kimberly, WI. My beginner photography classes have brought students from all over the state of Wisconsin who desire to have a better understanding of using their dSLR for their own personal photography. I also have a YOUTUBE channel for education if you or someone you love is interested in a Beginner Photography Class.
