beach lover,
disney obsessed

I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 21 years and we have 3 kids; Simon, Ellie, and Abby.  We love to have fun together so that means lots of silliness and laughter.  Whether we're at the beach building sand castles or at home playing an in depth board game, fun is always on the menu. 

I've been a photographer now for almost 10 years! My previous career was as a NICU RN, which became more of a challenge once my kids came along. 

Hi Friends, I'm Lydia.

I'm originally from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, then my husband's job took us to Northern Virginia, just to the west of Washington DC. We spent 7 years there, which is why you'll see a lot of my content is from that area. We relocated our family to the Dripping Springs/Austin area in 2021. I'm looking forward to connecting with Vendors and Venues in the Wedding Capital of Texas. 


I can’t help myself. I love my job!

i love seeing happiness.

But I'm from Dallas-Fort Worth.

i lived near DC.

Each ring set is as unique as the couple.

i love a beautiful ring shot!

"Lydia was SO helpful during our entire engagement and prepared us for our big day. My husband and I are definitely not pros in front of the camera but, Lydia made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and taught us lots of fun poses! On the wedding day, you could just tell that Lydia was in her element and took charge, making sure everything went smoothly all day and night.

The bridesmaids  and I were late to the venue so we didn't have much time to take bridal party portraits beforehand, but Lydia knew EXACTLY where to go and what we should do, and all the pictures turned out amazing!  My brother and future sister-in-law were so impressed with her too, that they joke they would have flown her out to Arizona where they are getting married if they hadn't already booked a photographer!  We have been so happy with Lydia being our wedding photographer and look forward to working with her more for future events."

"Since the first time we met Lydia, we knew she was the one we wanted to photograph our special day. She is local to our area and came prepared to show us what she could offer us through her wedding package. She is honest, trustworthy, hard working, and lively! Her photography skills in both her and her second shooter are beyond perfect. She has an eye of detail, the right lighting, and makes you feel so elegant!

If you are nervous to shoot, don’t be with Lydia. She teaches you poses that make you look so flattering in the engagement shoot and you use them again on the wedding day. She takes time to make you feel comfortable and let’s you know when she has captured that perfect shot. I cannot say enough about our time with her! She bends over backwards to do her job and do it well beyond what is expected.

Thank you to Lydia we will have our special day captured for a lifetime! Much love and blessings - looking forward to working with her more as life evolves ❤️"

"Lydia was absolutely fantastic! Booking her was one of the best decisions that we made for our entire wedding - she made sure to get all of the photos that we wanted (and more!) while maintaining a very positive attitude on a pretty chilly and rainy day. She was very professional and so fun! Lydia was extremely helpful and responsive through the entire process - from the engagement photos, to planning for the wedding timeline, and the day of, everything was amazing! The photos are perfect and I would highly recommend Lydia as a photographer."
