"Words cannot describe how phenomenal Lydia is! She really captured every beautiful moment of our engagement and wedding. I love her philosophy of no posing because everything looked and felt so natural. She literally laid on the floor to get amazing shots of our families and friends. I’m so grateful to her for helping us capture all the amazing moments of the fastest day of my life!"

two words: real life! As an authentic storyteller, I want to provide you with images that represent your genuine moments. Your photos should bring a smile to your face *tears are also welcome*. At weddings and sessions, my goal is to photograph those moments from "inside" the moment instead of "from the outside looking in". I always describe myself as "Not Your Grandma's Photographer". To me, this means providing images that aren't cliché. This means, not only giving you images that help you to remember moments, but instead, showing you these moments from a whole new perspective.
weddings: I believe in telling your story wholly and completely. I promise to give you the best of the best from your day. Every wedding day is different depending on the nature of the day and coverage, but couples usually receive between 400-800 images.
engagement/anniversary sessions: the goal is to spend an hour having fun and portraying your genuine personalities through your images. You two are on a date and I'm just your third wheel, following along and capturing your love. These sessions usually provide 50-70 images.
weddings: my goal is to make you do a little happy dance with a couple of previews within a week of your special day. I take a lot of pride in going through each image individually and working hard to make sure each one looks perfect for the two of you. That being said, delivery time is between 6-8 weeks.
engagement/anniversary sessions: I know you're excited, so my goal is to get you a preview within 3 days of your session. You should have a gallery full of fun memories within 2-3 weeks.
weddings: once you fill out the contact form, I will send you an email with a ton of fun information as well as a link to my calendar. Then we will find some time to chat about your big day over coffee *or wine* or over email (if that's easier for you.) Once we decide to move forward, all that is required to secure your special day is a $500 retainer and a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding *the countdown is on! woo hoo!*. Payment plans are also available.
standard sessions: again, you can fill out the form above and then we can begin chatting and putting some plans together for your session, such as location, dates, etc. Once we decide to move forward with your session, I will send you over a contract and invoice. Half of the total is due to reserve your date, and the rest is due two weeks prior to your session.
