About

Lisa, Principal

Biography

Based in San Francisco, Lisa has been photographing weddings for the past nine years, earning national recognition for her fresh, lifestyle images. She specializes in film photography and brings a fine art sensibility to her wedding work.

Lisa's elegant photos are featured regularly in magazines such as Martha Stewart, Elegant Bride and Bride's. Her attention to detail, low-key working-style and her personalized approach to each wedding has made Lisa a favorite among brides near and far.

What an honor it is to capture moments between a couple, among family and loved ones. To illuminate the colors, light and beauty of a wedding day – this is my art and my great privilege.

Kind Words

Andrea Ferretti

Wow!!! Lisa, thank you so much! Your work is so amazing. I am nearly in tears! You made us look awesome and the colors are so vibrant. My heart is bursting. Thank you!

Katie Miller

Thank you so much - they're BEAUTIFUL!! I LOVE THEM ALL! The slideshow is amazing and the whole gallery is absolutely unbelievable. We appreciate how hard you worked and how unobtrusive you two were (Rich even forgot about you guys when we were talking about the reception). I sent the slideshow link to my mom, and she immediately called me and told me they were so beautiful that she cried a couple of times. She hasn't even seen the whole gallery yet... Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Suzanne Yonkers

I just looked at the pictures and had to write - they are amazing!!! It is so fun to relive the day and see some of the many things that I missed (or forgot). I feel you captured the essence of the day so perfectly. Thank you so much! It was a great wedding and we threw a hell of a party! Thank you for capturing that for me!

Angela Chan & Hubert Tong

Thank you so much! The photos are wonderful! You captured our wedding day so perfectly. We spent all evening going through all 900+ photos! We definitely have a few favorites, but they all look great. Hubert and I are already wondering how we can work with you again. Wow, is all we have to say! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jocelyn Pietsch

The photos are so beautiful! I love seeing all of the smiles and laughter, and also the details I missed in person. We are going to have such wonderful memories, thank you for capturing them!

Emily Ang

Thanks so very much, Lisa for helping us capture this very special day. The photographs are very beautiful and they really capture the architecture of the space as well as the spirit of the wedding. When I look at the images, they put a smile across my face.

Ronnie & Denes Rothschild

We almost fell over when we opened the proof albums of our wedding photos. Your photography is a work of art! We loved your attention to detail, your creativity, flexibility and ability to accommodate all of our wishes. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Even our families and friends noticed your professionalism and passion in your photography. Lisa, we are so grateful to be among the lucky couples who’ve had you as their photographer, and we thank you so much!

Shannon & Jay Kimmelman

We interviewed many photographers, and Lisa was the only one whose grace and charm equaled her photographic skills. She made us feel at ease, and feel happy to be with her. Her sense-of-the-moment is uncanny, and while capturing intimate moments she is magically unobtrusive. With her eye, we now have a record of our wedding that captures its myriad moments just as they felt living them – a difficult feat, and the sign of a rare professional. We recommend Lisa without a single reservation.

Adriana McKee

Lisa is wonderful! She not only takes amazing photographs, but is a complete gem the day of the event. We called moments after we left her studio and hired her! Lisa made me feel at ease and was so warm and friendly. She fit into our wedding day perfectly and everyone loved her. My family can be a lot to handle and Lisa was perfect! One of the most special moments was slipping into my wedding dress and Lisa was there taking the photos and the feeling in the room was perfect. When I had met with other photographers before the wedding, I kept thinking "What will I feel like with that person in the room when I am getting ready?" - well, I knew Lisa was someone that I wanted there, to be a part of that moment. Lisa was on it with the photos and we had so much fun.

Denice Degnan

Lisa was a fantastic part of our wedding and an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely organized and captured some amazing memories for us!

Liz & Brian Forth

It was a pleasure working with Lisa. Not only was she professional, but also fun, and we couldn't be happier with the photographs of our wedding. Everyone who has seen them has commented about how incredibly the photos turned out. Our only dilemma is choosing which pictures to use in our album!

Kind Words

Kathleen & Stefan

Stephanie did a fantastic job photographing our wedding and capturing the special moments of the day. Her warm and calm demeanor was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. Her presence was barely noticed by our guests, but she still managed to capture a lot of natural and candid moments. We were thrilled with the pictures and received so many comments on what a great job Stephanie did photographing our wedding!

Tina & Marty

The most important part of our wedding was the photography. Stephanie gave us incredible memories with her amazing photography skills and attention to detail. We welcomed a new baby this year and we can not wait for Stephanie to photograph these new memories for our family.

Artisan Book
