Photographer Lyka Orhel
Hello, I'm Lyka! Rooted in the island of the Philippines and currently based in East Bay, California. I'm a Bay Area Wedding and Elopement Photographer. Most days you can find me playing with my Yorkie baby or sipping a cup of green tea or boba whilst glued to my laptop. I am a fiancée to an amazing Warriors aficionado and I'm an overly obsessed dog mama. I'm all about the natural light! I photograph people who are looking for adventure and who are into raw emotions and authentic moments.
Raw | Authentic | Fun
Love Note from a Groom
As soon as we started planning our Tuscan wedding, we knew that there was no other choice. It was always Lyka or bust! Luckily, she was able to accommodate us and we couldn't be happier with the results.Her style is very natural but there's a slight touch of dreaminess to it. She doesn't ask you to do cheesy and overly dramatic poses. She's incredibly patient with camera shy subjects and makes you feel at ease. Within just a few minutes, you'll even forget that she's there taking photos.
Looking back, she was able to capture our special day exactly as it happened. Even when things didn't go according to plan (It rained during the reception), she remained on point and went ahead to document how our sit down dinner evolved into a super fun house party.If you're planning on getting married, do yourself a favor and book Lyka Orhel while you still can. It's really Lyka or bust! - Migi Manalastas
