We are a boutique wedding photography service that aims to capture love and wanderlust in the most honest and natural way by maintaining authenticity, intimacy and flexibility.


You are unique and so is your wedding. Custom quotes are available for each event. We don't do set collections because we like to set into account the size, location, and needs of your your wedding day. Share your vision with Lyka and together you will design an individualized experience. 

FOR YOUR WEDDING: Lyka Mak Photography will share her expertise built over her years of experience, from tips about locations to building the best timeline for the day. Lyka will direct you for the most flattering portraits, but will also capture the genuine moments. She has a relaxed approach to taking photos to allow real moments to unfold and capture them. 


It was always Lyka or bust! Luckily, she was able to accommodate us and we couldn't be happier with the results. Her style is very natural but there's a slight touch of dreaminess to it. She doesn't ask you to do cheesy and overly dramatic poses. She's incredibly patient with camera shy subjects and makes you feel at ease. Within just a few minutes, you'll even forget that she's there taking photos. Looking back, she was able to capture our special day exactly as it happened. Even when things didn't go according to plan (It rained during the reception), she remained on point and went ahead to document how our sit down dinner evolved into a super fun house party. If you're planning on getting married, do yourself a favor and book Lyka Orhel while you still can. It's really Lyka or bust! 

 As soon as we started planning our Tuscan wedding, we knew that there was no other choice.

Though I can’t use my words to describe the wedding, my photographer Lyka captured everything visually through her cameras. Her images showed exactly our style: natural and romantic. I love going through our photos over and over again. Lyka had not only documented the wedding itself, but all the emotions that went on that day too! These pictures are a precious memory to us. I will be looking at them for the rest of my life. I’m so lucky to have found the best photographer. I really appreciate her hard work and talents. It was truly a dreamy wedding and dream day! From my little sister lovingly looking at me while I put my veil on to my friends partying till dawn. My husband and I are grateful to have her!

Lyka took our annual family photos for the first time last year and I don't think we can ever go with anyone else now! She is such a natural with my kids too. I love how all the photos of the kids had natural smiles because Lyka was able to make them feel so comfortable. It really felt less like a photo session and more like we were hanging out with a friend who just happened to snap some photos along the way! We will treasure the photos forever and made a whole album of the of them even! We adore Lyka and highly recommend her!

Lyka was the photographer during my engagement shoot. After seeing the photos, i knew i had to get her to photograph my wedding. She did an amazing job and is very easy to work with. She makes sure you feel comfortable and it was a great experience. The photos were beautiful. I cannot wait to upload the album on my FB page and to hang a few photos on the wall of our future home.

I've worked with Lyka a couple of times already. She is by far one of the most talented young photographers in the country. I met her when she was 17 years old and even back then she was already ahead of her generation in terms of creativity. Lyka continues to amaze me with her work and her continuous growth in the industry. Congratulations Lyka on your growing success! Love you! Mwah!!
