I'm Patricia Lyons and welcome to my blogsite. I am an international lifestyle photographer based in Virginia.
I shoot, well, everything, but you'll find I mainly photograph editorial for select magazines, as well as beautiful weddings in Virginia and around the world. Some photo slideshows are stacked below to the right, and you can even watch them all if you have a whole lot of time and a jug of coffee (and I've been told a box of tissues). You can also 'search' the blog if you are looking for something specific.

Or I suppose you could just enjoy the ride back in time, as everything happened.
I know I have.

You can find me at (804)387-5722 or email patricia@patricialyonsphotography.com

Kate and Jay

She was the kind of bride so happy about marrying her fiancé that nothing could dim her smile. The kind of bride who didn’t want to burden her eight bridesmaids who were flying in from San Francisco and NYC to Virginia Beach to celebrate with her. 'Wear what you’d like for the wedding', she said, and they did. Short dresses, long dresses, every color and all stylish and stunning.

She laughed frequently and easily, her head back and face to the sky when the best man dropped the wedding bands at the altar. Later, her usual smile broadened to the megawatt version at the suggestion of a spontaneous detour to the beach for a few photos on the way to the reception (which was right next door to the Church... and well worth it).

He was into photography, greeting me at the rehearsal with a handshake and a “We’re so glad you’re here”. And that was all I needed to become one of his many fans.

Together they totally worked. Clicked. Fit. A pair meant to be. It was such a pleasure shooting their wedding and meeting their amazing families and friends. I was honored to be their photographer.

More to come....
