TIMOTHY LEE PHOTOGRAPHERS New York meets Paris: Timothy and Lydia Lee have collaborated as photographers for five years. A native New Yorker, Tim studied documentary photography with preeminent artists at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Tim has diverse interests in photography through working extensively in commercial and editorial, as well as in film and personal exhibitions projects.

Timothy and Lydia Lee bring something so unique to the world of photography. Their respect and appreciation for the art of fine photography is evident in all they do – from discretely capturing every detail your own eye would never see to their calm personalities that help you relax and truly be yourself. I love how they care so much to really get to know you and your destination, making sure they tell “your story” through their beautiful images. - CECI JOHNSON

Wedding Photography Tips by Timothy Lee:

  1. Feel life in the images: No matter the style of the photographer, his or her photographs should emanate energy. Looking at photographs is seeing a moment that can only happen once, and that no digital effects or posing can recreate.

  2. Choose thoughtfully: Portfolio, demeanor and approach are the starting points in choosing a photographer. With so many photographers to choose from, hear the perspective of the artist and whether it is the way you envision being photographed.

  3. About you: Tell the photographer how you see your wedding day, talk about locations, who and what you love, and details which are meaningful. All these thoughts enrich my visualizations beforehand, and on the actual day beckon me to look closely.

  4. Trust completely: Assuming that you have considered your choice well, then this is a natural. Live the day. Let the artist give everything. The greatest motivation for creative people is to feel free to make strong and beautiful work.

  5. The wedding day: Everyone is there for you!! That’s what is great and slightly crazy. Accept love and don’t try to do everything. Instead let go, have fun and live every moment fully. (P.S. It’s the best way to have wonderful photographs.)
