hello!

I’m Lydia, a wedding photographer living amidst the trees of California and lover of dove chocolate, lemon scents, coffee, and books!

Most days you can find me working from home on my MacBook Air, driving on over to my friend Angela’s house for a work date, or traveling for a photoshoot I put together on a whim just to be creative. Every day is new and different, and I thrive on the variety and freedom!

I love to just spend time with people and getting to know them on a deeper level, whether through playing sports, meeting up for coffee, or grabbing lunch together. Everyone has a story and being able to share in that is such a privilege!

Travel! While I believe Grass Valley, California is one of the most beautiful places in the world, I dream of traveling and capturing love in new places near and far!


Last but not least I love...

When it comes to photography, for me it’s all about authentically capturing their story on one of the most important days of their lives. It’s the beginning of a marriage, a family, and a new life together!

I’m so emotionally invested on wedding days because on the days leading up to the event I’ve heard how they’ve met, got engaged, are planning on the little details, and their plans for the future. So when I show up on that day, we’re no longer strangers but friends!

Then when the stress has faded away and that new life has begun, the two now one can look back on their pictures and remember all the beautiful moments from their day! It’s all about capturing memories for lovely couples!

what's your story?

Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event! And unless you had a close friend get married recently, navigating the wedding world can be overwhelming. So our first meeting will just be a relaxed time to get to know each other and make sure we're a perfect fit!

I want to hear all about the two of you, how you met, got engaged, and all the fun wedding details. The more I know, the more invested I become and can better capture your story!
