Kind Words.

ANA + KARL

Karl and I were both instantly drawn to Lydia's natural, organic style and the way she had beautifully captured all the intimate moments. When we met Lydia we knew she understood us as a couple and what we wanted and needed from her. We felt at ease and knew we could trust her to capture us on our day.  

Our investment with Lydia is well worth it and will be ongoing with all the printing options available. When our images arrived (with flowers and bubbles!) word got around and we were booked out with family and friends viewing nights. 

Lydia exceeded all our expectations and has an amazing talent of capturing people’s genuine emotions. Thank you for leaving us with warm, loving photographs of our special day that we will treasure for years and generations to come.

LINDSAY + ANDREW

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Just got your AMAZING care package! Oh my gosh thank you.You have done such an incredible job with capturing our day! Such a talent! We were both close to tears. Already showed Andrew’s parents and his Mum did cry!

And we adored the link you emailed with our songs over the top... so thoughtful. Your attention to detail with the presentation is just so lovely. Fresias & champagne... very, very classy!! We can't thank you enough.        

ZEENIE + SHAUN

Our major concern when finding a photographer was finding someone who would be able to capture the “fusion” of cultures that was our wedding. Leading up to our wedding day, Lydia communicated with us frequently and asked all the right questions, which made us feel very confident in our decision to use her. 

On the day, Lydia was able to effectively coordinate a potentially difficult group, and was able to produce images that far surpassed our expectations. We would definitely recommend Lydia to anyone looking for a photographer who is both professional and highly personable in her approach.        

AMBER-ROSE + SHANE

After much soul searching I came across Lydia and her beautiful work. Her style was exactly what I was looking for - simple yet breathtaking because through her lens you could see the honest and raw love shared by her couples. 

When we met with Lydia she instantly put us at ease and answered our million questions. She seemed to perfectly understand what we wanted and what our wedding meant to us and our families. 

On the day Lydia was ultra professional yet relaxed and helpful. She went over and above to capture our weekend and even managed to tame our unruly groomsmen! She put us completely at ease and made the day even more enjoyable. 

I couldn't recommend Lydia more. She's young, talented, professional and just an all-round awesome person. Our wedding wouldn't be the same without her!   

I wanted someone who had a had a beautiful eye for detail, who could capture every moment, who had a lovely style and someone personable. I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to find such a dream photographer that was within our reach. 

Lydia and I met for coffee and I was sold. Lydia is such a lovely, warm and caring person, she is a professional but one you are also instantly friends with, I knew both my husband and I would feel comfortable with her photographing us on our special day. 

In the lead up to the wedding she was amazing, she made time to go exploring for locations, even in the rain! And she had lots of insight and ideas for us which really helped on the day. She always paid special attention to communicating with us. Lydia captured our day perfectly! She has a beautiful style of photography, great direction, and was a dream to work with.
