I’ve never been that type of person that knew exactly what they wanted to be when they grew up. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would be a photographer. After graduating college and getting married to the man of my dreams, I pondered the idea of going back to school or working full-time. But deep down, I knew that working 9 to 5 just wasn’t for me. So when a friend asked me to second shoot an engagement shoot, I jumped at the chance to try something new and fell in love.

Five years after my first shoot, I love my job all the more. I love hearing couples stories of how they met and fell in love. I get giddy when I hear about the proposal and their future plans together. I never thought that I would be a girl that love’s love, but I do. I want to document your stories and what makes you, well, you. I don’t just capture a pretty picture, I want to capture the emotion, the laughter, the joy of the day. But most importantly, I want to capture your story, your modern romance.

I currently live in Southern California, but am willing to travel near and far…

    Hello, I was referred by Melody Franco, I love your work. I am 5 and a half months pregnant and would like to have maternity photos taken soon. DO you have packages for belly and baby shots? If you could email me or write me back with some more information I would really appreciate it.

    Thank You, Jessica Magallanez

    Hi, I know I contacted you to do my wedding and you were referred to me by Melody Franco. But unfortunately that week you are having a baby, what a blessing that is!! I was just thinking, and was wondering if you could possibly do our engagement photos. If you could please email me back as soon as possible. Thank you!

    Me and my wife were married 10/27/12. About 2 weeks prior to our wedding we had stumbled across some reviews that were not pleasant concerning the photographer we originally hired and had no choice but to fire her. It was very important to us that we felt comfortable with our photographer considering we only had 1 shot to capture this VERY important day. A friend of ours referred us to Lydia, and we had schedule to meet with her the next day. From the beginning we were very impressed! Lydia was very kind, attentive, and professional… not to mention her portfolio was AWESOME!!!! We knew she was perfect for the job! On the day of our wedding she showed up on time and was excited to start working right way! The second photographer was just as excited and professional! We were a little worried because right before the wedding the winds picked up to about 30MPH!!!!!!!!! Lydia and her assistant stayed calm and reassured us that they will make it work. When we got our pictures back almost 4 weeks later, which was much faster than we could have ever expected, we couldn’t even tell there was a breeze! THE PICTURES CAME OUT BETTER THAN WE COULD HAVE EVERRRR EXPECTED!!!!!!!!!!! She asked us to find the 25 photos we wanted her to edit as our specialty photos but still can’t make up our mind because all the pics are edited so well already! Throughout the entire process Lydia has made me and my wife feel sooo appreciated. She answered all of our calls and emails in a timely manner, at the wedding she made my wife feel very special, she was assertive enough to get my loud and outrageous Italian family together to take photos without being too pushy or offending anyone, whenever there was a candid photo moment she seemed be right there, and after our wedding she was just as easy to get a hold of as prior to the wedding and gave us our photos faster than I have ever heard of! I will recommend Lydia to all my family and friends when it comes time for them to get married!!! SHE WAS AMAZING, GREAT, ARTISTIC, PROFESSIONAL, KIND, CONSIDERATE, and ATTENTIVE!!!
