Every moment marks a milestone on your wedding day, from the clink of baccarat crystal to the swinging sounds of Al Green at midnight. With camera in hand, I’ll collect them all: Stolen kisses, outstretched hands, belly laughs and everything in between.
Decades from now, even the most fleeting details will fuel connections across generations. In the meantime, they’ll paint the portrait of a day as joyful and wholehearted as you are. From happy endings to the hero’s journey, stories like these are the threads that tie us together –– I’d be honored to tell yours
Welcome to the familia – I’m so grateful you’re here!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in nearly a decade as a wedding photographer, it’s this: Take nothing for granted. When captured on film, every passing detail chronicles a life well-lived. An instant before the lens can open entire universes of affection and understanding for those to follow in your footsteps. Wedding photography is so much more than a celebration of your story – it’s a celebration of every generation to come. With dozens of weddings under my belt, it’s this belief that connects them all. The result? Joyful, vibrant photographs rooted in compassion and driven by delight.
Wherever I go, my camera is never far away. More often than not, it’s stowed in the overhead bin on a flight to Paris for flea market shopping and croissants of every kind (but my favorite Chanel clutch is always under my arm). From vintage treasure hunting to hole-in-the-wall cafes, I have a knack for finding hidden gems wherever I go.
I’m a first-generation Latina (¡Viva Mexico!) and a graduate of the Cal State College of Business and Economics, but at the end of the day, I’m just here to celebrate: Give me an A-line silhouette, a fresh passport stamp, and a scoop of lavender ice cream to make one happy photographer.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m grateful and honored you’re here. Step in front of my lens and we’ll create something beautiful. Turns out, it’s my favorite way of celebrating every once-in-a-lifetime. The only thing left is to invite me to yours.
Lily Tapia is everything you could want in a photographer.
Lily was a breath of fresh air. Her dynamic shooting style creates a vibrancy and warmth that absolutely jumps off the page and screen.
One thing that definitely sets her apart from the rest is that she sought input from us every step away, working with us to make every single picture unique to the general vibe we were looking to capture.
She is flexible, fun, and super nice. She had us laughing and hyped up between each snap.
Lily showed the same attention to detail in both the engagement session in which it was just the two of us, and in the wedding, where she had to manage and direct dozens of rowdy family members and friends.
I am so glad I found Lily Tapia Photography! She is very professional and offers quality work. I was so pleased with the amount of communication, ideas she provided, keeping us on schedule the day of the wedding, and of course the final product.
She is energetic, engaging, and a lot of fun. She made us feel comfortable and at ease.
My family was very impressed with her work as well. I recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer - she's the best
Que mujer! Lily really knew how to put us at ease.
She also helped bring out that natural smile when being in the moment and knowing how to direct you to get the most gorgeous shots you could imagine.
Lily is also bilingual and it really helped during our wedding when directing some of our family members.
We love you Lily!
