My team comprises of two members, myself and my confidant of 7 years, Michael, to document and curate your story. As the primary, I’m there to capture the major highlights as it naturally unfolds.

By having two artists to narrate and guide throughout the day, we are able to create the necessary coverage our couples deserve.

My name is Babsie Ly and I’m a fine art wedding photographer and filmmaker based in San Diego. I travel all throughout Southern California and destinations worldwide.
As a wedding photographer / videographer, I am grateful to be given creative opportunities to capture a couples’ journey as their families unite as one. Connecting with you and learning about your uniqueness will result in meaningful imagery/film that you’ll love. By learning what is most important to you and what will make you the happiest when I document your big day is what my services is all about. ~ Capturing honest and heartfelt moments. ~ The wedding details you have carefully selected and the loved ones you have invited to share this wonderful chapter are all part of your story. At the end of the day, the photographs and the videos from your wedding will be your most cherished heirloom.
My passion is to create imagery and films that tell beautiful stories in a timeless, authentic, and artistic way. I document love stories that remain true to my couple’s natural chemistry by creating thoughtfully composed imagery and film filled with light. My artistic style is romantic, luminous and fashion forward.
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. Film allows me to conceptualize what I'm about to shoot and be present in the moment. The creamy skin tones and painterly feel is timeless and beautiful. I love how film evokes so much emotion in a portrait. This is one of the many reasons why I incorporate film into my work.
