About Lilia Photography


Lilia Ahner San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographerHi, I’m Lilia! I am a San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographer. My mission is to capture authentic moments, real emotions, and tell your love story in a refined and relaxed manner.

Photographing weddings is my passion, and I love weddings of any size, from San Francisco City Hall weddings and elopements, intimate micro weddings, to large multi-day wedding celebrations — I love it all! I have photographed weddings since 2007.

My style is classic, timeless, and romantic. Many of my influences include cinema, fashion, documentary photography, art history, and graphic design.

My formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communication from San Francisco State University. My studies included photography, graphic design, and art history. Before my life as a wedding photographer, I worked as a web designer in the tech industry.

My husband and I reside in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. In my spare time, I love to watch documentaries, check out vintage flea markets and museums, walk in Golden Gate Park, and meet new people.

As an LGBTQ+ ally and I support marriage equality.
