Lydia is an amazing photographer! My husband and I were awkward picture takers and she made us feel more than comfortably and capable. Our engagement and wedding pictures are better than we could have ever imagined. She stayed later than she was contracted for to get a picture that was important to my husband and I. Lydia and her second shooter even bustled my dress while I went through the buffet 😂 I HIGHLY recommend booking Lydia if you want beautiful pictures to look back on!

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 ❤️

10 out of 10 recommend hiring Lydia. She was amazing to work with and her photos were gorgeous. In the beginning she worked with me over the phone to understand her process and how she stood out from other photographers. She lets you see full albums which was nice because I knew I wasn’t just making my decision to hire her based off of her top 10 photos from 10 weddings but off of her full coverage of different events in different lighting. She connects with you to make you feel comfortable with her which turned out to be so important as she was with us the whole wedding. She captured the event as it is, which brought across more real, meaningful photos rather than something that looked like a posed photo shoot AND it let my husband and I enjoy the wedding rather than being focused on photos the entire time. That being said, she did give us some prompts here and there, like inviting the groom to dip me, which I was thankful for as we don’t think of those opportunities in the moment. She went above and beyond what I expected, meeting me and my wedding coordinator at multiple walkthroughs and planning sessions. If you choose to hire Lydia I recommend listening to and following her advice as she knows what she's talking about. She was organized, helping me set a realistic timeline before and then helping us stick to it so we could enjoy each and every moment that we planned. Finally, I was blown away by how quickly we had the photos. She had a preview of the top 10 from the morning and ceremony for us to see while we ate at the reception and had the rest for us online a week after the wedding day. She also gives you all of your photos with recommended favorites rather than making you pick a certain number which I don’t believe all photographers do.
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.

Lydia was an absolute pleasure to work with for my wedding! From a freezing cold, sunrise Lincoln Memorial engagement shoot to wrangling a 14 person wedding party for pictures, Lydia was a true professional. My husband and I clicked with her the moment we met, and we couldn't be happier with our choice for a wedding photographer. Lydia was able to capture all the special moments of our big day, and I will be treasuring our photos for years to come.

Not enough words can describe how thankful we are for you, but THANK YOU! We truly do not know what we would have done without you. Thank you for allowing us to have you as our photographer. We absolutely love our photos! You were able to capture some great moments even though we were behind schedule (sorry!) and despite my face/back being eaten by mosquitos. We also love the little gift items you sent to us. These, along with the photos, will give us a lifetime of memories. We had a photo viewing party after the wedding and everyone loved the photos so much. Maybe the next time we'll see you is for a baby photoshoot?! Haha! But not anytime soon! Thanks again, so much for everything!
Lydia was a joy to work with. She was able to capture beautiful moments of our little family. We have two boys under the age of 5 and she was extremely sweet and patient with them. Even when they would not cooperate she was always kind and clever to get them to be happy again.
Lydia is an incredible photographer with an eye for detail and a knack for making you feel comfortable right away. She makes sure that your needs and vision are met, but is just as happy leading the way if you aren't sure what you want! The process from start to finish is highly professional and easy, but also warm and friendly. And her photographs are truly beautiful! We highly recommend Lydia!
She went out of her way to get to know my daughter prior to the shoot and made helpful suggestions on ways we could better capture her personality and interests. I remember asking Lydia to try and re-create a photo of her as a little girl, which turned out so special. She also surprised us by taking a candid shot of my baby girl and myself together. If I could say one thing about Lydia and her style of photography, is her incredible ability to capture those tiny “details” and moments that most photographers overlook. She is very professional, personable, and has a way of making someone feel at ease. Although my daughter is not planning on getting married any time soon, when the day does come, I have no doubt which photographer we will be hiring to capture her special day! Lydia Teague Photography, that’s who!
