Hi there!

I’m a South African lifestyle photographer, history nerd and language fanatic (I also speak Afrikaans and German. I understand Dutch, and my Italian's coming along nicely!) living in Rome with the love of my life, my Italian husband.
I adore my adopted city and creating gorgeous visuals with my trusty camera.
To me, being able to combine these passions and share it with others, is the best of both worlds.

Lisa was amazing! She and I corresponded before the day of photographs. Having not been to Rome and unfamiliar with the locations, she emailed me more detailed photos and descriptions of the locations, even with the time of day that were best. When the weather wasn’t ideal for our agreed upon date, she emailed me and offered us the flexibility to move it to a more suitable day when the sun was shining! The day of she met us at the designated spot. She was so warm and welcoming, keeping with social distancing parameters even though I immediately felt like I could have given her a warm handshake or hug! She was so personable, kind, easy going and welcoming! My 2 daughters took to her immediately and we had a great time together! She shared stories of her family and gave us some great local tourist tips for the remainder of our time in Rome. I haven’t seen the photos yet but I am so excited to see the memories she captured of our time in Rome! Don’t hesitate to book a time to have Lida capture your time in Rome! She’s a gem!

Lida approaches her work with an extraordinary professionalism, passion and politeness, that made working with her spectacular both experience and photo capture wise. Beyond the shoot, as added value, Lida provides a fun tour of the city as you travel from location to location and the gelato at the end is a sweetness that sets off the entire activity!

Our experience with Lida was really fun and truly special! Lida was warm, funny, and made it easy for us to relax in front of the camera. Booking was so easy, and she gave us multiple location options. She was very clear on instructions and even gave us timely emails about the weather in case we needed to reschedule due to rain. The sun was out so we didn’t have to, and she made great use of it during our shoot! She was also super funny and it felt like going on a walk with a friend. If you want to capture your trip in beautiful locations around Rome, definitely connect with Lida!

It was such a wonderful experience!! Lida is creative, funny, knowledgeable, and a great storyteller. My husband and I thought we were just having a photoshoot, but Lida gave us a history lesson and mini tour as well. This made the experience even more engaging. And the gelato at the end was delicious!! We highly recommend one of her sessions. You won't be disappointed.
