Business becomes focus of photographer's passion

City issues 27 business licenses in December

February 5th, 2013 in News

After earning a pair of business degrees, Lindsey Pantaleo has turned her passion for photography into a moneymaking venture.

She and her husband moved to Jefferson City last year to be closer to his job, and she recently started her own photography business, Lindsey Pantaleo LLC, 712 E. High St. It's more of a studio than a storefront, so it's accessible by appointment only.

She's one of 27 businesses that the city issued business licenses to in December.

Pantaleo said her photography business focuses mostly on weddings and lifestyle photography, such as senior portraits. She also arranges glamour portrait packages that include makeup and hair styling from Catherine Crumb The Salon, followed by glamour shots that include more than two dozen retouched digital images.

Pantaleo earned a bachelor's degree in business from Missouri University of Science and Technology, followed by an MBA degree with an emphasis in marketing.

When she started photography as a hobby about a decade ago, she used her mom's old Pentax film camera.

"I was getting into it before the big digital age came in, but I hopped on the digital boat pretty quick," she said.

Her website is, and she can be reached by phone at (573) 263-1884.
