A Vintage Inspired Fairy Tale Wedding - August 6, 2016

On an incredibly hot, humid and sunny August Day near Weehawken, NJ, a princess and her prince said their "I Do's" in front of their family and friends and so began the first chapter of their happily ever after...

Here is the story of their day, the best way I know how to tell it... Please Enjoy.

Weddings and Summer - a perfect marriage.

Hello friends,

It has been literally six months since I have posted an update. Those that know me personally may know why.  Unfortunately, it has been a very rough year that began with losing loved ones in succession , and it is only now that I am able to try to return to some level of normalcy in my work and schedule while my family and I begin to heal...

That being said, the summer season with its lightness and longevity of days helps infuse some much needed positivism and joy. Summer season also signifies the beginning of wedding season and outdoor portrait shoots. As a natural-light photographer, it is one of my all-time favorite seasons in which to document such significant memories of love and life.

Weddings in general make me happy. Here are a few captures of some of my favorite client weddings:

Love is a beautiful thing. I am excited to be documenting more couples in-love, weddings and portrait sessions this Summer.

I am also currently booking family portrait sessions for those interested. Here are the available dates:

June 26, July 1, July 15 and 16th. Please email me to for more information on pricing or click on my Services and Pricing page here for more details on what is included with each session. 

Will be back soon with more upcoming photo shoots and DIY decor projects. Please stay tuned...

A Brother and Sister Fall Portrait Session

My last portrait session for the Fall season (because technically today is the official start of the Winter solstice,) was for these two adorable siblings. Kate and Tyler.

I've had these two cuties in front of  my lens in the past when I took Fall Portraits of their entire family some years ago, but the spotlight was definitely on them for this outdoor session.

Their special dynamic is quite evident in the following photos; there is undeniable love, playfulness and a special little bond that only little humans can have for their best friend and eternal play partner.

Please enjoy some of my favorite captures for that day:

These kids undoubtedly had a blast, and so did !

 If interested in booking your own natural light portrait session, please visit my Services and Investment Page for more information.  Also, please follow more of my work on Instagram @cestlaviephotographybylyra or on my Facebook Business Page.

As always, please stay tuned for updates and exciting changes to come in 2016!
