More Than an Image Photography »

Seven years ago I photographed this fabulous backyard wedding… I was just getting started… and I have to be honest… I’m not sure if I knew in entirety the way my camera functioned! (Hmph… I think the “on” switch is here… and I think this green square button means… AUTO! Ha Now we’re in business!! haha!) We all start somewhere, right?  Thank you Wyndie for trusting me and having faith in my ability to shoot your wedding! :)  I had NO idea… that the wedding from 7 years ago would lead to the wedding I photographed last weekend!  The groom from this wedding is Wyndie’s brother!  Not only did I get to see everyone again… I met a beautiful, talented, thoughtful, fun-loving woman who became his wife!   Lindsay & Andy… I had SUCH an amazing time spending your special day with you guys!  Once again…I feel I have new friends… not just new clients!  You guys are absolutely perfect for each other…and it gives me great joy that you chose me to document your day! :)  Here are a few of my favorites… It was SO hard to narrow it down…so bear with me… this is a long post!:)

Enjoy!:)

  • Wyndie Woodhouse - Well, Thank God that I knew you and your family for MY wedding. I certainly didn’t mind being your test subject 7 years ago. (by the way it was 7 years and 5 days from mine to Andy’s) I get to tell everyone how far you have come and how totally AWESOME you and your work are! You have such GREAT ideas and make things flow really well. I was very proud at how organized and professional you were even though you were like part of the family. I think everyone liked that fact that you danced with us, joined in on our conversations and took the photos everyone asked for at the last minute! Your grandpa is certainly smiling down at you as you are enjoying the gift that you both share. I can’t wait to see the other 2,000 pictures! lol Hugs Wyn-:)

  • Haley Kruse - Haley….I’m here often =) ok I’m here every post =)

  • Jen Gallo - Do they have these in Austin?!?!?! Austin and I are planning on registering at PB (I’m eyeing the white Bedford collection desk! YUM!), and it would be awesome if they had classes like this here in town! My style is definitely vintage, simple, and classic, which is why I LOVE PB. I’m constantly inspired by their catalogs (they’re all over my house, and I have a hard time getting rid of them!), magazines in general (I can’t ride shotgun in a car without one), photogs, and music, music, music!

  • Morgan Taylor - some of the coolest detail shots ever! lol!

  • Julie - We’ve never met, but I’m friends with Prashant and that’s how I came across your work. L.O.V.E. it all. Love Pottery Barn too and I occasionally go their workshops in Highland Village.

  • Haley Kruse - ok I forgot to sum up my style in 3 words and what inspires me. ok. my style? bold, different, artistic. what inspires me?…watching movies…I love Nancy Meyers style in decor lighting and the feel of her last three movies. Children’s books and nostalgic things from the past, and Lacy Dagerath, duh! sorry I did the post wrong the first time. =)

  • Erin Christie - Hi, my pretty friend. What inspires me???? Your perspective on the world, first off :) COLOR inspires me, whether its found in nature or on the rack, it moves me to no end when I see colors that dance together beautifully! My style = changing ALWAYS while always sticking to the classics that WORK through the ages and make me HAPPY. I also cant answer within guidelines, ever, so I did not sum up in only 3 words. I hope I am not disqualified. ;) LOVE YOU.

  • Lori - garage sale chic ;) I make budget decorating look good!

  • Lori - Oh! And what I’m inspired by is making a space that is comfortable enough for me and my man on a daily basis, but aesthetically pleasing and interesting for people we welcome in our home! (which requires some creativity and patience on a thin wallet!)

  • Adrienne - I am new to your blog and loving it already! Your work is truly amazing! I consider my style to be classic, bold, and timeless. I am inspired by magazines, incredibly talented photographers, bold colors, and high heels. Ok I just really love high heels. :)

  • Wyndie Woodhouse - Lacy, Your photography always amazes me! You do more than that. Your personality comes through each one. I am so excited to say that I have known you for many years and been able to watch your progress like you have. I don’t really have a style, but if I had to list one, I guess it would be rustic country. I need a professional decorator, so if you come across one of those cheaply let me know….lol too bad Brenda isn’t here anymore! love ya honey!

  • AmandaD - What a cool idea- both the contest & the PB show. I’m just a Houston gals who stumbled upon your blog after my interest in photography.

    My style- clean, bold & fun. I am inspired by nature recently, I love looking at blogs & photography stuff.

  • Liz - Lacy, I love your blog!! I am always so excited when I get an email with a new blog post; it’s so fun to see all of your work!! I would describe my STYLE as a mixture of classic, trendy, & chic. I am INSPIRED by magazines, movies, and celebrities (since they seem to set the trends)!

  • Kirbi - Well I am on your stalker list of course and once we move to Houston I plan on visiting Highland Village very often to inspire me to decorate our new place. :) My style has not been able to fully emerge yet, seeing as Jeremy and I just graduated and are moving in one month. So our style will be discovering itself soon, I hope. BUT I would say three words to describe style I like is charming, cozy, but classic. Things that are pleasing to the eye, but still let you curl up with a good book on a rainy day and feel warm. Things that are creative and nifty whether it be vintage fea market finds or do-it-yourself canvas art. And of course a little organized clutter. I am inspired by YOU of course…a great example of how to find beauty, love, and passion in the world no matter what the image or scene appears like. Hence your company name, more than an image. I get it! And i love it! I am also inspired by those who take the path less traveled…being a small town girl who grew up and went to college in the same town and has yet to leave…I am inspired by those who live with reckless abandon and truly find themselves while doing it. One of the most inspiring quotes to me is “There is nothing like returning to a place unchanged and seeing ways in which you yourself have altered.” It inspires me to stop fearing change and try and go leave my mark on the world, because the ultimate benefit from doing so will teach me a whole lot more about ME. I am also inspired by children. This stems from being a brand new, young mom. Their innocence, their purity, and the true joy you can witness at their new experiences and discoveries of the world in which they see…I cant even put it into words.

    Love your Pottery Barn shots!! I hope our new apartment is charming enough for you to come take some pictures ;)

  • Jae - Well you know I’m a huge fan, spread your name and of course read your blog after every post. Your work is amazing and there isn’t anyone out there who catches the shots the way you do and make them so real. You are a role model!! Love the pottery barn photos, especially the flowers– my fave!

    Ps I’m so jealous you have met and shot Bridgette I just love her.

  • Heather H - Hmm…my style would be candles (or anything that smells good for that matter), color, and comfy :) (oh wow, 3 C’s…totally didn’t plan that haha). Those classes are such a fun idea!! I use to work at Pier 1 (we don’t have a PB here :( ) and I loved it…I love PB way more though haha. I am always stalking their website for ideas and things I wish I had the money to buy!

  • Stephanie - You are so amazingly talented Lacy. Truthfully and from the bottom of my heart, I am so glad to know you. Everything that you have, you have worked hard for.

    ~S

  • Bailey Perry - Lacy,
    I am amazed at how awesome these shots are :) I am jealous of your talent, but at the same time so proud to even be a part of your world. Praying this is your best year ever! -Bailey

  • Lindsey - Can you come help decorate my house? I love all those flowers in the tin vases. Oh, and the Pepsi boxes, how cool! I wish I could of heard you speak. I know you did a great job. Love your photos, once again, you are incredible!

  • Emily - Hey Friend! I love your shots of the Pottery Barn event. I would summarize my decorating style as: simple, classic, and creative. When we got married I got the PB White dish set and I love them! It is a perfect example of my style with simple white plates in a classic design. I can be creative by adding a colored table clothe to make the plate pop or add a colored dish on top of the plates to add flare. When my friends come over for dinner they are like, “oh you should have used paper plates it just us,” but why do that when I can have fun designing a table-scape and tap into my creative side. I love keeping up with you by looking through your blog. I will try to post more :)

  • Emily - Everything looks so pretty in those pictures. I am registering soon and will definitely be visiting pottery barn :). I love how flowers can turn a dull room into something elegant!! Can’t wait to see more amazing work!

  • Katie J - My style is classic, old world.

    I love rich reds and golds and browns, dark wood, granite, and slate.

  • Chelsea Frashure - I would say my style is comfortable, simple, and (I try for…) a little sexy. ;)

    As always, I love your work. Gregg is making fun of me now for being addicted to your blog. I just cannot get enough of looking at your pictures. I cannot wait to have you take maternity shots when that day comes. But you have to wait, it has only been 14 months since you took our wedding photos. Until then, I’ll keep following you on here.

So excited to be shooting Lindsay & Andy’s wedding today!! Here is a sneak peek of what is in store!!;)
