About Me


Hello!  My name is Liz Seidel and I am the sole owner/photographer at Sterling Life Photography.  I’m a mom, a wife, and photographer. Let's keep this simple.  I love weddings and I love photography.  I majored in Design in college at Drexel and that path took me from high end retail to graphics for clothing to print graphics to photography.  It’s funny how life can change so much after college and your path sort of finds it’s own way.  When my son Sterling was born, I was a single mother and I had to do twice as much to provide a stable life for him.  Not a day goes by where I am not thankful for that struggle and all the wonderful things it has brought to my life; mainly, Sterling himself. 

I now have two children and they keep me busy and laughing. I currently live in Lynchburg, Virginia, but often travel to for weddings and sessions. I have photographed weddings all over Virginia including Lynchburg, Roanoke, Charlottesville, Virginia Beach, and Richmond. Even Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Arkansas. I LOVE meeting new people and reconnecting with clients over the years.  Originally being from the beach, I have left part of my heart and friends and family there and I will always be connected to it.  Lynchburg is a wonderful place with a slight southern charm and mountains that take your breath away in the fall.  My wonderful husband, Will, has been my rock and I am so lucky to have had him in my life to support me and push me on my journey.

I hope you enjoy looking through my photos as much as I enjoy taking them. I am so thankful for all the amazing people who open up their lives to me, and allow me to be a part of capturing such sweet moments and important memories.  Photographs are so important to everyone, they become your life's history.  To me, life is all about having love wherever your journey takes you, and that is something I have learned along the way.

If you’re looking for a professional photographer, I would love to hear from you. I specialize in wedding photography as well as in home lifestyle and everyday sessions, which you can see more of here.
