about the artist
My name is Babsie Ly and I'm an artist who uses photography as my form of storytelling. My artwork embodies modern elegance with an editorial flair. Staying true to capturing intentional and candid moments, I focus on delivering high quality work that is luminous and refined with an array of beautiful colors.
I strive to create a warm and inviting experience for couples who desire imagery that is meaningful and timeless. With an eye for photojournalism and editorial design, I love to blend both styles into my workflow.
With a BFA degree in photography and graphic design, I have an extensive background in color theory, composition and lighting. This has been a tremendous influence in my body of work and has helped me become an artist who is versatile.
As a hybrid photographer, I shoot in two different formats, film and digital. This gives me creative range to shoot in different settings and environments. I choose to incorporate film into my workflow because it allows for intentional images that evoke emotion with painterly tones.
I work alongside my sweetheart and business partner, Michael, to document and curate every story. He is an amazing asset to my workflow who provides second shooting coverage with a fresh perspective. By having two artists to narrate and guide, we are able to capture all the beautiful moments and details throughout the day. Driven by honesty, kindness, and professionalism - we strive to provide an exceptional experience that is smooth and unobtrusive while thoughtfully composing imagery for every couple.
A graphic designer, a fine art photographer & videographer with a background in color theory, and natural/studio lighting.
With a BFA degree in photography and graphic design, I'm passionate about creating natural, graceful imagery that is meaningful and timeless. With an eye for photojournalism and editorial design, I love to blend both styles into my workflow. I concentrate on all elements of the day for my clients - focusing on how the light impacts the imagery and guiding all subjects into flattering compositions/angles with natural, authentic poses. I'm proactive and hands on where assistance is needed - whether that be adjusting the wedding dress train or veil, fixing visible hair strands, directing into the best light, and finding the best locations to capture the couple, etc.
