What people are saying


“We spent a wonderful afternoon with Lydia in September. She was gracious enough to come to Nantucket to photograph our family, and was very flexible and accommodating with our schedule. We are absolutely thrilled with the photographs she took, and would definitely work with her again/ recommend her to anyone seeking a family photographer. Lydia is professional, courteous, responsive, and above all, extremely talented.”

“Outstanding experience, nice and relaxing photo session at the beach. Lydia has an easy-going personality and is open to anything. The pictures turned out great. Highly recommended. Thanks Lydia!”

{wedding} “Lydia has an extraordinary way of seeing the world.... She naturally carries a familiar, down-to-earth vibe with her, and put us instantly at ease — she felt as much like one of the guests as a photographer. And she completely captured the atmosphere of the event with the same candid clarity we had seen in her other photos; her work surpassed our greatest expectations. She created some of the most eclectic wedding photos I have ever seen, along with some more traditional shots — I simply cannot say enough about what a pleasure she was to work with. 

Perhaps the greatest testimonial that I can provide to the distinguished quality of her work is this: at each and every wedding anniversary since (for five years now) I have returned to Lydia for assistance in converting one or more of her wedding photos into the form of the traditional medium for that anniversary. She advises closely at every step of the creation . . . and she never ceases to astound me with her talent for discerning the precisely perfect gift and the way to personalize it with images of our special day.”

{wedding} “We found Lydia’s information online and became interested in her right away. When my now wife and I met with her she was very easy to talk to! We had a great connection right away. She was very attentive to all our wishes and took all of our needs into consideration through the entire process. She was always very accessible, whether a quick email or just a phone call away. The day of our wedding she showed up and just got to work without needing any direction. She captured every moment perfectly! Thank you for making our day so memorable!”

— Andrea

“I hired Lydia for a “holiday mini-session” this year, and it was worth every penny. I have never received so many compliments on my holiday card, but, more importantly, I now have priceless family photos taken right before my son’s first Christmas. During the shoot, Lydia was extremely patient with my son (who was 9 months-old at the time) and went to great lengths to get him to smile. She is extremely easygoing, but at the same time she is very professional and responsive; she had my edited photos to me within a week of the shoot. I chose her over a few less expensive alternatives because the quality of her pictures seemed superior, and I’m glad I went with my gut. She is great!”

— Laura

“We loved working with Lydia. Not only is she so easy to work with, but she is also truly gifted in capturing the precious moments. She has a non intrusive style and really knows how to find natural lighting. We highly recommend her!!”

— Angelique

“Lydia’s photos were awesome. She has a great way with young kids. Got the greatest pictures the grandchildren playing at the beach. Would highly recommend Lydia for any occasion.”

— Toni

“We did a family photo session with Lydia this summer and a recent one in December. Both were a great experience and the photographs from each session were beyond what I expected. I loved them! Lydia is flexible, accommodating, professional, and super fun to work with. The photographs came out beautiful and everyone comments how great they are and asks who the photographer is.”

— Kathy

“We loved meeting Lydia on the Cape while on our vacation to capture some precious memories of our family. She was energetic, fun, and captured real moments. Thank you so much Lydia!”

— Leyla

“Lydia has helped my family capture many precious moments from our girl’s first birthday to my pregnancy with our son and his newborn shots. She will for sure be a fixture in our milestones as she has a great eye and is so laid back and willing to try anything. I highly recommend her if you want beautiful photos.”

— Margaret

{wedding} “Lydia turned my wedding photographs from moments into magic!”

— Kimberly

{wedding} “Lydia took the the most beautiful, magical pictures of my wedding. She was practically invisible the entire time, yet I had photos I didn’t even think she could have gotten. And so many! Usually you want your photographer to take a ton of photos with the hope that you get a few really great ones. When we got our pictures back, it felt like EVERY picture was worth framing! I cannot believe how lucky we are to have had such an amazing photographer. I will hire her over and over and recommend to everyone I know. Thank you, Lydia!!!”

— Francesca + Dennis

“Lydia did a fabulous job photographing my family - a difficult task with a 2.5 year old, 10 month old, and dog that was a little too excited to be at the beach. She was responsive and helpful throughout the entire process from planning through ordering. At the session, she had a calm manner and was able to capture special family moments without being in any way intrusive. Most importantly, the photos were fantastic. I would highly recommend using Lydia if you are looking for a fun, laid back, reasonable family photo session with amazing results!”

— Vanessa

“Lydia was so gracious with her time and talent. She truly blessed us. She was patient and willing to wait for our daughter’s “perfect moment.” Lydia cares about family and relationships and that came through during our time together. Lydia was engaging and really worked to capture moments that reflected our family. Eyelyd photography is unique, personal and something we will cherish for many years to come.”

— Karin & Chris

“We found Lydia through a local store in town when she was doing an Ergo baby shoot. Right before our youngest was born we booked a family/new baby photo shoot with her and she was so patient and helpful. The day couldn’t have been better. She understood the needs of our new baby with needing to change diapers & feedings. We have 3 young children and she captured their joy and attitudes perfectly! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience...we love all our photos and can’t wait to work with you again.”

— Kristi & Kenneth

“We met Lydia by chance when she chose our family to shoot for the Ergo photo shoot. She did an amazing job and was great with our daughters! We are looking forward to having Lydia continue to photograph our family as our girls grow!!”

— Rachel & Casey
