"With this ring, I give you my heart, I promise from this day forward, you shall not walk alone, may my heart be your shelter, and my arms be your home."

Hi! I'm Lydia Thrift, owner and photographer at LPT Designs Photography. I have dreamt of having a creative business all of my life. My supportive husband, family, friends, and clients are all making that dream come true and I couldn't be happier with where this business is going!

I am honored that brides choose me to preserve their wedding memories in gorgeous, boutique, editorial, fine-art images! As a fine-art photographer, I prefer quality over quantity. The fine -art editing techniques I use will help document the dreaming, the planning, the building, the preparation, the emotions, the love. Let me help you give life to your memories through photography.

Thank you for visiting my website! For taking time to get to know me and my work. It means more to me than you know!


I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer in the Gadsden, Alabama area (AND BEYOND). My associate and I shoot on the best DSLR's that Canon has to offer: including a Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 5D Mark III, and Canon 6D with six awesome professional lenses to give your portraits that flawless, airbrushed appeal!
