The Wedding House series is a tribute to her husband, documentary filmmaker Bob Elfstorm. On October 27th 1984, Lucy and Bob got married at The Lyford House, in Tiburon CA. Ever since, they return to the historic Victorian location every year on their anniversary just to take a self – portrait together, sometimes featuring their daughter too. Lucy and Bob have been life partners for 35 years now.
One of Lucy Hilmer's most well – known projects is her series My Valentines, pictures of her husband and daughter Annie, taken from 1987 until 2010. These photographs were subsequently printed as postcards and mailed to family and friends to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Lucy self-published a hardcover book with the 21 portraits of her beloved ones. The photographs are also accompanied by poems written by her.
