Hi there! My name is Lisha, and I am a San Francisco based wedding and lifestyle photographer. I am formally trained as a biologist and work full time as a lab scientist, but capturing love and adventure is my passion! I got my first DSLR camera back in 2009, and life has never been the same since then. I shot my first wedding in 2010 after responding to an ad on Craigslist and I was completely hooked! People ask me if I would ever want to become a full time photographer, and my answer is always no. I love photography too much to turn it into a job, and I really enjoy using both the technical and creative aspects of my brain. It certainly keeps me busy! Because of my schedule, I take on a limited number of weddings and shoots per year in order to serve my clients the best that I can.
I am most invigorated when I am outdoors and being in awe of the work created by mother nature. I am the most excited when I am working with laid back couples with a similar sense of adventure, who are not afraid to let their hair get a little messy or their clothes a little dirty. Couples who value experiences, relationships, real moments, and the Golden Hour speak to my soul.
As a photographer, I should probably have a more glamorous picture of myself, but I feel like this picture is most representative of the real me. It was taken right after I backpacked 10 miles on California's amazing coastline and I was so happy and content!
If you feel connected to me and my work. lets talk!
