Keith Lynds—Owner

My father, Robert Lynds, started Lynds Photo (then known as Bob Lynds Photography) in 1945, in Berkeley, California. Over the years, he never wavered from his goal of providing the best wedding photography to all Bay Area Brides and Grooms.

Today, I continue what he started so long ago. While I rely on our team of dedicated professional wedding photographers to capture our brides' and grooms' memories, I now provide the perfect add-on video service to round out our offerings.

Photography can be so much more than a way to create memories - it's an art form with no boundaries, and I strive to tell a story with every image. I dig deep to capture personality and flare and look past the obvious to help people find an emotional connection. I'm creative, resourceful, dependable, artistic, and very adaptable to style or circumstance and I will blend close-up and expressive imagery with wide angle storytelling and lots of details in between! My photography can easily shift between intimate and formal, however my preference lies with candid and contemporary. I'm easy to work with and pride myself on the ability to shoot without being intrusive, I want you to enjoy your wedding with minimal interruption!

What photographs are most important to you on your wedding day?

Before picking up a camera, my main intent lies in establishing a relationship with you - sharing your visions and designs and listening to your questions and concerns. Our engagement session is a great way to begin to connect so when your wedding day arrives we can look forward to being in a comfortable and trusting place, anticipating the excitement that awaits you, your family, and your friends on your special day!

When Tami was young, she would find tins of old photos at her grandmother's house and spend hours and hours looking at the pictures of the people who made her family so very special. Now that she has a family of her own, she spends time documenting their life as well as the milestones of others' lives. Her passion for her clients and art have landed her features in major publications such as the Huffington post weddings.  Aside from photographing weddings and spending time with her family, she likes to read, cook, and sew pretty things for her girls.


Eliot has been a Bay Area photographer for over twenty-five years. His primary areas of expertise are event (wedding & party) photography and portraiture. His first book (The Everything Photography Book, Adams Media, 2003) was a how-to book for amateurs. He also teaches classes in lighting and posing to Bay Area professional photographers, and judges print competitions for two Bay Area professional photography organizations.

Eliot is a master of traditional photography, with an emphasis on lighting and posing that brings out the best features of the subject. Eliot says, “Photography, like life, is all about relationships. We have to get a sense of who the people are, and how they feel, and how they feel in relation to their loved ones.”

Masterful lighting is the hallmark of Eliot's photography, along with the sense that the viewer can truly connect with the people in his images.

Since 2011, Eliot has been photographer for calendars and books published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and Sourcebooks. His photo books and calendars have been featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in People Magazine, and even on the BBC.

I started my adventure as a Photographer 21 years ago when my first child was born. It was then, that I discovered my passion in the art of photography, which has inspired me to become a family portrait photographer.

My portrait style is traditional and timeless, capturing moments is essential however posing and lighting is key and I have an extensive background and value every moment a family spends together, so I'm always anticipating and capturing the moments. My belief is the best images are the ones that feel natural to the client, with a little of my fine-tuning.

In my spare time, I love to work in the garden, enjoy my farm-style home which is full of too many animals, spend time with my children and husband who has always encouraged and believed in me as a photographer.

Oh! I should mention I love to release a hearty laugh and have no problem putting people at ease, beautiful photography starts with the relationships between the photographer and you!

While born along California's central coast, I grew up overseas, which fostered my love of travel, adventure, and sharing stories and experiences with others. Being part of a traveling family, we had many cameras and definitely enjoyed photography. It wasn't until 2011, when my wife and I took an extended cross-country road trip to take a break from our daily grind, that I took a deep dive into photographing our life. I starting working as a full-time photographer in 2013. I primarily photograph events and portraits but also dabble in product, fashion, and landscape photography.

I use a candid/photojournalistic approach and offer occasional direction. I strive to create photos that are authentic and reflect everything that makes you awesome with minimum fuss. While I'm driven to capture moments that you will wish to revisit for a lifetime, I also wish to promote a fun and relaxed wedding-day environment and process that allows you to enjoy the whole experience with your friends and family.
