About Us

Once upon a time…

A girl set out on an incredible journey, leaving her enchanted homeland called South Carolina to pursue her dreams in a far away place called Tallahassee. She joined a very special tribe called the seminoles and studied the local culture of politics. but one day, (after a lot of lessons, two degrees and a TON of student loan debt), Linda received an omen that changed the course of her journey.

A hobby lost from her youth, Linda picked her camera back up in 2004 and rediscovered her love of photography. On a wing and a prayer, she founded Long’s Photography that year and began photographing weddings. She brought her love, laughter and ambition to create beautiful, contemporary wedding images and soon Long’s Photography began to grow.

As she became a mother, the journey for Long’s Photography also changed and her passion for portrait art expanded to include babies and families. Linda’s vast experience with children quickly made Long’s Photography Tallahassee’s premier wedding and portrait studio. Through her grand journey she has met many magical, wonderful enchanting people and those people embraced Long’s Photography and Linda’s dreams. The business thrived with praise from clients, awards from the industry and acclaim from the community, but Linda’s journey is not yet complete. There is art yet to make, baby giggles not yet captured, and memories left to be made. Won’t you join as part of this grand adventure?
