I agonized over finding a wedding photographer, and we are so happy that we made the decision to invest in Lia. She is a talented photographer with a great aesthetic, and was cool, calm, and fun throughout every stage of the process. On our wedding day, Lia was patient and relaxed but efficient and totally on top of where we needed to be when, cycling through various family/bridal party photo combinations, and somehow managing to be both running the show and totally in the background, depending on the moment. In all the photos, everyone looks totally comfortable and happy (and gorgeous), which was how the wedding felt overall. Lia’s photos (viewable on her user-friendly website) speak for themselves, and for her sharp eye for detail and excellent balance of formal and candid shots, but we can also vouch for her as a calming, positive, professional presence. She (and her second shooter, Andi) truly succeeded in beautifully capturing the color, spirit, energy, and joy of the day, and we’ll be forever grateful for that. More...

Lia shot our engagement and wedding. She was so easy going and extremely fun throughout the entire process, especially when it can get uncomfortable and awkward getting photographed. She made us feel good and confident. When we got our photos back, we CRIED! They were all so beautiful and perfect - completely beyond our expectations. She truly captured all the love, joy and happiness of our wedding day - and we looked so good! Lia is so talented and has completely mastered her craft - we highly recommend her! More...

Lia is the best. She has a natural ability like no other. Lia knows how to bring out the true person in her subjects which is not as easy as it seems! She is AMAZING and definitely stands out from the other thousands of photographers who saturate the market. If you are looking for something beautiful, unique, and original...Lia's your gal. She is top notch More...

I don't think that I can rave enough about Lia. She is truly a gem and one of a kind. We hired her for our engagement and wedding photos and my goodness, she surpassed every expectation and made every moment beyond special and fun. It down-poured on our wedding day, and Lia was there right by my side telling me how great the photos would be and taking on a bridesmaid role as I slightly freaked out. She was completely right, our photos were AMAZING and we have received SO MANY compliments. She will forever be our photographer for every other special moment that comes our way. We have the upmost gratitude towards her as she captured the most important time in our lives so beautifully. We will cherish the photos forever and our relationship that we built with Lia as well. :) More...

Lia took my engagement photos, and also photographed my large family over the years. She is a gem! She is so creative and her warm approach makes everyone feel at ease in front of the camera. I love the way she poses – nothing tense or expected. All our photos looked natural and beautiful. Bonus points: Lia also got my non-smiling husband to let loose and smile in half our pics, so I consider that a huge win! More...

Lia photographed our rehearsal dinner party as well as our wedding. Our ceremony was outside in Foresthill, in the middle of a thunder storm. Lia was so supportive of our very difficult decision to keep the ceremony outside and assured me it would make for beautiful photos. Even in the worst conditions a bride could imagine (freezing, soaking wet, ruined hair and makeup and at risk of being struck by lighting) Lia made it a very enjoyable experience that we'll never forget. She's easy going, endlessly creative and extremely professional. Our photographs are absolutely beautiful and framed all over our home. We are so grateful she was there to document all of the special moments of our wedding. More...

Lia took both our engagement and wedding photos. After receiving several suggestions from friends for a photographer, I began looking through the photos of many different photographers. There were lots of gorgeous photos from them all, but the only photographer who I felt captured the personalities of each couple was Lia, which lead to my choosing her as our photographer. After viewing our engagement photos, my (then) fiance and I were so impressed and received so many compliments, and felt so confident in our choice to use her as our wedding photographer. Come wedding day, Lia was punctual, took all of my requests into consideration (she had a print out of my Pinterest board I had sent to her) and was very speedy capturing all of our amazing shots so we had plenty of time to enjoy our guests as well. She captured all moments of the wedding and reception so well, and I have received SO many compliments on how beautiful all of the photos are. I am so happy to have found Lia and would recommend her again and again! More...

Lia is amazing. Our engagement photos turned out wonderfully and cannot wait to see how she does our wedding! She made us laugh even though we were both exhausted and nervous about being in front of the camera. The whole process was easy and painless for a camera shy couple. Thanks Lia!!! More...

I am eternally grateful that Lia is are our FOREVER photographer. She simply just gets it. She has a unique capability to feel like you’ve known her for an eternity. With that she truly brings out the best in your photos and all the while capturing raw, pristine, beautiful images. It's an honor to have had her creative magic capture the best days of our life (engagement/wedding photos) and I can’t wait to continue to have her document the monumental moments of what’s to come in life.

We had Lia photograph our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. I hate posing for photographs as a rule but Lia and her colleague made the entire process painless and fun.

The family portraits great of course, but they're obviously taken with direction from the photographer about where and how to stand, etc - the exception being the "behind the scenes" photos taken we didn't know about which look awesome. What really stood out for me was the "candid" shots taken during the ceremony and reception - Lia completely disappeared into the background captured some stunning photos of everyone that we're in love with.

I would absolutely recommend you check out her website - and then book her. You won't be disappointed.

Lia is AMAZING. She shot our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they are breathtaking! Lia was recommended by my sister as they went to school together and I am so happy the Lia was the one for us! Her attention to detail is perfect and she really know how to work that camera! She was so supportive when it came to making decisions, especially when i am extremely indecisive. She was also so helpful when it came to making a timeline for our day. She was able to lay out the time that she needed for photos and i was able to lay out everything else for our other vendors based on the timeline she made. She made us feel for comfortable in front of the camera and all of the photos turned out amazing! Thank you Lia! More...

I'd give Lia 12 starts if google let me. She' s worked with our family multiple times and each time was AMAZING! Having toddlers and little kids could make a family photo shoot stressful - but that isn't the case with Lia she makes the shoot fun for everyone! This is how good she is: the accompanying photo was taken after our two year old had not napped, and just gotten his regular booster shots at the doctor two hours before. WHAT?! Like I said....amazing. Just book her already. More...

Q&A

Getting the real laughs out of people is something I pride myself in. We will be having fun with our photo session together, it won't ever feel like a stuffy and rigid experience.

I will need to know if you'd like a more conservative style headshot - in studio, on solid backdrops or if you'd like a more environmental headshot.

Providing a good experience for everyone and being able to create something that people will enjoy really gets me.

I'm a creative, and a maker. I had to get my ideas out!

If you're looking for a fun & easy going experience, I got you.
