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

The Forager

I am going to come back and fill this little space, and the two entries below, with some insights, information and witty (ha) comments, but for now I just wanted to share this piece I did for Garden&Gun. I loved the day I spent shooting with Vickie and learning about how she forages food in her backyard. And was most happy that I didn't end up with chiggers, like someone else who visited her. Yeah, just google that term and you'll be glad too. Come back if you're curious later...

I also have about, oh, 6 or 7 awesome weddings I cannot wait to put up. A few are on hold as they await possible publication decisions, but they were all so gorgeous and the couples were fantastic.

My typically sleepy January February went bonkers on me and time has been a luxury I haven't had much of... but I cannot wait to get back on this blogging, if for no other reason to stop my friends from harassing me about how slow I have been to post! I guess the good news is I have been shooting a ton, and am so glad for that.

Darryl Carter

Very possibly the hardest part of shooting gorgeous homes is coming home and thinking what I need to do around here. It's every so slightly depressing! Terrible home envy ensues.

But Darryl Carter was so fun to work with and his home on Embassy Row (it used to actually BE the Embassy of Oman) in Washington, DC was simply breathtaking. I loved his home, I loved his dog Otis, I loved him, and his awesome employees. I love my job.

More Home Work

I recently photographed this funky geo-thermal, environmentally friendly house that sits on the shore of the James River, in Hopewell.
