"They’re dreamy, natural and romantic, just like I envisioned. Lyka was able to capture us as a couple and the essence of our wedding."

I'm Lyka, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in San Francisco, California. I’m a wife, sunshine lover and peppermintholic. Most days you can find me wandering the city with my husband, Ken, and with our Yorkie baby, Finn or sipping a cup of iced caramel macchiato 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'm a wannabe interior designer who loves to explore and seeing new places. Black, white, beige, and sometimes blue 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.

THE SURPRISING WAY WE SPEND OUR SPARE TIME, WHAT WE BELIEVE IN, AND JUST A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS.

about us

PS.
I also hope to photograph couples in every country! 

I married my best friend and business partner, Kenton. I'd like to think we make a perfect balance because I handle the creative side and he handles the numbers. 

MRS. MAK

One of my top priorities for my wedding was that my six year old fur baby, Finn, would be with us in every moment of it. He was there for me his entire life so of course he had to stay at the same hotel as me! Thanks Taj Campton Hotel SF!

FUR MOM

Dessert is important. Food or not, I truly believe that you need to enjoy the sweet things in life. Savor every moment of it!
