Hola chica, I'm Lydia !
I grew up in a big family that was always getting their photo taken by our Mom. Our baby albums are crammed full with memories! Because of that I have learned to love using photography to document those moments that go by in a flash! Memories can become hazy and photographs often help restore the moments we can't remember.
Awesome facts about me:
-I'm 5'1, spunky, and I got a little bit of sass!
-I drive stick shift so my calves are nice enough to support me when I have to stand on my tippie toes when I have tall clients (aka all my clients because I'm short)
-I'm obsessed with Jeeps and Tacos. I could eat tacos in my Jeep all day long without a care in the world!
-I love spending time by any body of water, specifically the beach
I have so many places I want to visit on this beautiful planet we call home. Check out my about me page to see what places I want to visit! If you decide to have photos taken in one of those spots... you my friend are in for a treat!
What's my style?
I think that photographing people in their natural element makes for the best pictures! Making sure that you feel comfortable and at home is my first priority. My goal is to build a relationship with each of my clients, and that is not a lie! I LOVE making new friends!
You won't just be posed in front of a camera... we will go on adventures together! We will dance, laugh, and GET SUPER SILLY! So if you want to make a playlist for the session... GO FOR IT! I am all for breaking it down and showing off my best moves.
So let me follow you around for the day and catch you in your element! Bring your dog or your grandma's fur coat, and take me to your favorite spot to relax! Yes, even if that spot is on your surfboard. I will get right in the water with you. Or if you're obsessed with Mexican food like I am... we can go get tacos and margs for your engagement session!
"Omg! We had so much fun with Lydia during our engagement shoot!!! She was able to perfectly capture our personalities during our session. My fiancé and I both walked away with excitement as we looked forward to continuing to work with her! Lydia was able to provide us with a few pictures within 24 hours and by the end of the week we had all of our edited pictures! Since then, we’ve gotten tons of compliments and I’m pretty sure more of our family and friends will be booking her for their portraits!"
"Lydia just did an AMAZING job on my engagement photos that were taken on Valentines Day 2018. We had our photos taken at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina and they turned out fabulous! Lydia was SUCH a pleasure to work with, very natural, and made my Fiance and I feel very comfortable during the shoot. Even though it was a little cold and windy, the pictures looked like a gorgeous summer day in Charleston, which is exactly what we wanted! She took So many great pictures in only a 30 minute session-- and had a great eye for backdrops and catching our photos in the most perfect lighting! I can't wait to have her take photos of our wedding day! I would highly recommend Lydia for any special occasion!"
"We are so happy we went with Lydia! She is so easy to talk to and makes you feel so comfortable. We just got our engagement photos back and love them! She totally maximized the time we had together and we love how the photos capture our personalities. We are so excited that she will be photographing our wedding!"
