About

For you, I can shoot your cat napping + surprise parties + birthdays + reunions + baby’s first tooth + bad haircuts…but mostly, I would love to shoot your love story.

Hi, I’m Connie.

I’m horrible at small talk, I hope you will forgive me in advance. I’m a Southern California native, born and raised (though I dislike palm trees).  I’m also a Christian, and everything I do, I do out of eternal gratitude to a humble Savior who saved me.

I love honey in my tea, grandma-sweater-worthy weather and cats (I have a sassy one). Yes, I am one of those. I love trying my hand at making new things with new materials and making familiar things with familiar tools. I love anything artsy, handmade and intricate. I’m a newlywed; so lucky and blessed to be married to my best friend. In fact, if you book me for your special day, my husband will most likely be shooting by my side!

I’m a romantic at heart. I’m also a storyteller (exaggerated gestures included). Therefore, I love documenting and re-telling love stories, to capture them in all their pureness, joy, and ability to transform and affect. When I photograph, I want to tell an honest story. I’d like to know just what makes you love the relationships in your life, the things that might otherwise go unseen by a stranger. If I’m going to be at the biggest day of your life, I want to know that I believe in each moment.

If you believe in this too, let’s talk! If you don’t, a cheesy romantic photographer might not be best for you, and that’s okay! If you want cheese on that pizza, email me at hello@connielyu.com.

My work has also been featured in the following publications: Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, 100LayerCake, Brooklyn Bride,  Utterly Engaged, Intimate Weddings, Elizabeth Anne Designs, etc.
