Hi! I'm Lisette...the gal who not only takes photos at your wedding but who also fixes your hair and carries your train, has an awkward sense of humor (sorry not sorry), becomes your right-hand woman, and gets down at your wedding! I always have another fun-loving photographer with me who uses the same high-end equipment and has equal experience in the field. There's no mistaking that the fun we have parallels our work ethic! There is no detail or moment that is missed.

When it comes to my style, I have a photojournalistic approach to photography that includes a touch of traditional portraiture.  I am all about giving you a variety to choose from. I absolutely love capturing genuine moments of joy and emotion, and behind my lens you will often catch me laughing and crying along with you (yes, I'm a big sap!).

In my free time you can find me working out, traveling, and having dance parties with my kids.  I love Italy, spin class, and churros.

I fell in love with photography soon after my first child was born, and I began photographing family and friends for their holiday cards, which led me to discover that I had a true passion for helping to preserve lasting memories.  I am so thankful when I was asked to photograph my first wedding; not only was it a challenge I was ready to take on, but it was the catalyst to embarking on an exciting new chapter in my business.  I have now been photographing weddings since 2016 and I haven't looked back!  I also have a dedicated team of associate photographers to take care of your wedding needs when I'm already booked, with all of the processing and editing done by me.

my photography style is photojournalistic with a touch of traditional.  I love documenting real life, so even during posed shots I will shoot those in-between moments to capture genuine expressions and laughter.

every couple has a love story.
let me tell yours.

"My husband and I absolutely LOVED every second that we worked with Lisette. From the moment we first got in touch with her to the day of the actual wedding day itself, Lisette was responsive, sweet, warm, and SO easy to work with! She strived to know us as a couple and made us feel so comfortable in front of the lens, and we are in love with the beautiful photos of our big day. We can't say enough good things about her. Thank you, Lisette!"

​"Lisette did a fantastic job! She was so fun to work with and made us feel natural when we posed for pictures. Our pictures are breathtaking. She sent us some "sneak peek," fully edited pictures right after the wedding, and I am so happy with them. Lisette loves what she does, and has a wonderful eye for pictures. She also brought along a second shooter, and the two of them worked very well together. If you want your wedding day to be captured beautifully by a dedicated professional, I highly recommend Lisette."

​"Lisette photographed our wedding and we were so lucky to have her there. She worked with a second photographer as well, which was awesome. They were able to capture every aspect of the day, versus just one perspective from a single photographer. Lisette was so sweet and immediately put us at ease for our portraits. My whole family commented on how great she was! And she totally is. Any bride would be happy with Lisette's positivity, passion, and professionalism--and of course, the photos! She has great style and ideas, and I'm obsessed with our pictures!


"Lisette and her assistant did an awesome job with the preparation and photography on the day of our wedding. Lisette was very easy to work with and spent time with us before the wedding to look at the venue and figure out timing and locations. We just looked through the photos and we couldn't be happier. She really captured the essence of our hearts and emotions. We laughed and cried as we relived our special day."

After deciding on a wedding date, choosing a location for an engagement session is one of the first big hurdles a couple faces after getting engaged. Engagement photographs are used for so many important things during a couple’s long list of wedding festivities. They show up, first and foremost, on the couple’s save the date, then they are displayed at various bridal showers, and then they’re used for decorations at the wedding. And if you’re anything like me, you still have some around the house! So I’ve decided to give some direction for you brides-to-be in the Orange County area.

Bachelorette parties are an opportunity for the bridal party to have fun, spend some quality time together, and bond ahead of the big day. They are also one of the only parts of the wedding that the bride and groom are not expected to pay for. While this is only fair (weddings are expensive), it can also be a source of stress for the bridesmaids when it comes to planning. How do you plan an event everyone is happy paying for? How do you keep costs low while still making it special for the bride? As it turns out, a little bit of planning and creativity will go a long way.
