Hello! I am Lyka Orhel, an adventurous wedding and elopement photographer currently based between Alabang, Philippines and San Francisco, California. Influenced by authentic moments, I hope to create visual pieces that are genuine and emotionally captivating.

I have been shooting since I was sixteen years old and I fall more in love with it everyday. Photography is more than just a career and an identity for me. I am continually learning and I never want to stop experimenting.

My first fashion editorial was published before graduating high school. I love learning and that made me study multimedia arts in college. When I am not in the studio, I go out to explore different places. My travel photos were exhibited twice in Milan and Manila. My background in fashion and travel helped me become the destination wedding photographer I am today. I have been taking photos of people in love locally and internationally. I love stories, and wedding photography is my way of documenting the great love that two souls found and share.
