Hello! I'm Lyka! I'm a Bay Area Wedding and Elopement Photographer based in Oakland. I’m an outdoor lover. Most days you can find me playing with my Yorkie baby or sipping a cup of green tea whilst glued to my laptop. I am a wedding photographer, an adventurer, a dog lover, and a Japanese food enthusiast. I photograph people who are looking for adventure and who are into raw emotions. Candid moments are the best ones. I am beyond grateful to have worked with people who want those raw, authentic, fun moments captured.Some fun facts: I love chocolate mint and exploring everywhere and seeing new places. Black, white, blue, and sometimes beige are the only colors that I wear. I love Scandinavian furnitures! When I am not photographing couples or families, my way of recharging is by watching home improvement shows whilst snuggling with my Yorkie baby. Oh, and I have a dream of photographing couples in epic places. I also hope to photograph couples in every country!
