"...we had a ton of fun working with you up to our big day and are so over the moon happy with how the photos turned out. Our friends and family are so in love with all the images and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our big day."

-Kyle + Marykate

"Her ability to capture everyone's personality and emotions is truly a gift. My wedding day was everything I dreamed it would be and my pictures were flawless thanks to Lydia..."

-Brad + Sophie

"Lydia was professional and timely. With 2 small boys... I was just hoping for one good shot. There were so many that I couldn't choose. She captured my family perfectly"

-Williams Family

"Lydia was everything and more that we could ever ask for in a photographer... She got an amazing amount of beautiful shots & delivered them very quickly! Her personality is amazing and she made us feel so comfortable!

- Erika

"There are no words to truly describe how amazing she is as a person and at her job! We had a couple other interviews with other potential photographers..but there was NO comparison ...they didn't have the "Lydia" touch... I can honestly say she started out as our "photographer" and came out of it as a friend."

- Chris + Katelyn

 great ideas and also open to personal suggestions. We are already

 for the Spring! We HIGHLY recommend her!!"

"Lydia's demeanor was so calming, and she was so patient with all of the bold personalities in our party. The photos came back SO quickly and they were truly more than I could've ever asked for. I would recommend her over and over again to any new bride"

"Lydia is such an easy and fun person to work with, and it definitely shows through in the beautiful pictures she takes! We have been extremely happy with her work and will definitely use her for our family photos to come!"

- Wolfe Family

"I looked at my fiancĂ© and said 'this is the woman I want to do every photo we ever need for the rest of our lives'. We knew that day that we needed her to be our wedding photographer. And I truly believe God crossed our paths for a reason." 

- Brandon + Alyssa
