the experience

Contact to find out if your wedding date is available. I look forward to learning about you and your wedding details. I hope to have the honor of creating for you.


You are an adventure seeker and love to explore near and far. At the same time, you enjoy your downtime in the comfort of your cozy home. You love balance and organization in life.
Most importantly, you treasure spending quality time with your loved ones and can't wait to celebrate together on your wedding day.


You love classic imagery because it will never go out of style. You gravitate to clean aesthetics with a blend of modern elegance and an appreciation for color. You adore fashion and chic elements.


You plan on placing your memories in frames on your home walls and heirloom albums on your family table to reminisce the stories of your beautiful life to your children & generations to come.


Your photographs will be the stories that carry on in your children's hands. This is why tangible heirlooms are far more important than hundreds of digital images sitting in your computer.


Your guests and the interactions throughout the day make for the best type of photographs.

Babsie was our photographer for our engagement session, as well as our wedding. Babsie definitely went above and beyond with her service and we were very pleased with how all our photos turned out. She was very organized and the timeline she created for us helped our wedding day run smoothly. We had so much fun working with her and couldn't imagine having anyone else capture our special day! - Stephanie and Jeremias

I used Babsie for my engagement photos at Joshua Tree and she completely exceeded my expectations. She was a dream to work with and made the entire process stress free. I was pretty nervous in the beginning of our photos, but her sweet personality completely made my nerves disappear. Our photos turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She completely understood my vision and took it to a whole other level. I can't recommend Babsie enough. I am so excited that she will be there on my wedding day and could not imagine working with anyone else. Thank you for everything!!  - Marina and Evan

Babsie Ly Photography turned my dreams into a reality for my engagement pictures. Babsie was very organized and provides so much support as we prepped for the photo session. On the day of the shoot, Babsie directed us on what to do and she had so many unique ideas! Our pictures are simply amazing! It was a joy working with you two! - Shara and Dion

Babsie and Michael are phenomenal photographers!! They worked like ninjas on the proposal, engagement and our wedding day. All our photos turned out breath taking! Babsie was extremely helpful and organized during the proposal planning process giving me tons of ideas and even planning it out for me since I was coming from out of town. Once the wedding planning began, we knew we had to work with them again and got our engagement and wedding photos done by them too. We're extremely happy with our decision to go with them! They already knew our story from the beginning with the proposal and we got more comfortable/camera-ready during the engagement session. By the time it was wedding day, it was smooth and the best time of our lives! Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts for all the amazing work you both have provided. Highly recommend! They’re attentive, creative, reliable, and super comfortable to work with! - Jay and Li

The perfect engagement photo session experience. Babsie was highly flexible, and gave us a beautiful variety of silhouettes and backgrounds in our final photo gallery. For someone who is not always confident in how she looks, Babsie made me feel beautiful and the final photos were so flattering of my fiance and I. I wish I was getting married in San Diego so I could use her again for my wedding ceremony and reception! It is hard to find the refined quality of photography paired with a quality business model.  - E + D
