Lisa Simon is an internationally recognized documentary photographer, specializing in imagery that places an emphasis on emotion and connections. Both her client and personal work are known for mastering the beauty of shadows and have been featured in over 50 publications globally. Lisa was named one of the Top Photographers to Watch by Reflections, and was selected to lead the North American DP Visual Collective Conference alongside renowned artists, Meg Looks, Jasmin Pickens, and Karen Osdieck.

Her clients’ comfort and satisfaction is top priority, while providing photos that speak to their memories (hearts).
