an Oregon wedding and senior photographer. I am based in Eugene, Oregon but I am available to travel worldwide. Oregon's wedding season is super short since it rains a lot so my goal is to travel and photograph weddings around the world.
I love fashion but I feel more comfortable in a t-shirt and ripped jeans. I love pearls because they make me feel classy and elegant...but don't let that fool you, I 'm neither! I'm just an average girl that wears a messy bun 90% of the time and loves to get her hands dirty in the garden. I love the Pacific Northwest and all the natural beauty it offers. I love waterfalls and going on nature hikes. I love to laugh, dance and sing. I can't carry a tune but who cares, I will still sing and then laugh at myself. I love to travel and immerse myself in the local culture and cuisine.
First of all, I want to thank everyone who was part of the giveaway. Two weeks ago I announced that I was going to giveaway a complimentary photo session with 20 high resolution images and the day to announce the winner is finally here! EEEK I am so excited to announce the winner. Ok so […]
I was in California for a few days and I couldn’t leave without doing a photo session at the beach. I have to say that the warm weather and sandy beaches are the only two things I miss from California. It was a toss up between the orange orchards and the beach. My daughter thought […]

So I wanted to post this last Friday but life happened and I was pulled away from the office. So here it is a week later. First I want to thank my family, friends and fans for your amazing support. I have been in business for a year and I can’t believe how much I […]
My first destination wedding of the year and you know it’s going to be a hot day if it’s in California! I have been looking forward to this wedding since last November when we did a prompt engagement session of the couple while they were visiting family in Eugene, Oregon. We had so much fun […]
I love this girl! She’s got a big heart and a big personality. When Gaby contacted me about doing her senior pictures I was delighted. Gaby was one of my first models when I started my business and her session helped launch my portfolio. She wanted a little bit of urban and a little bit […]
Last week was a week of graduations. It’s hard to believe that this year has come to an end but with that comes a new beginning for Class of 2012! I am so excited and proud of Dylan. He is an amazing young man. Loves God and loves people. When you are around Dylan, he […]
One of my favorite seniors is graduating today! Congratulations Miss Devyn! I am so proud of you and how far you’ve come. In honor of Devyn’s graduation, I want to share Devyn’s testimony that she kindly wrote for the blog. Her story is a story of grace, mercy, love, God’s redemption, and a mother’s ultimate […]
I am so excited to be introducing you to my very first guest blogger, my husband Curt Gillis. Even though his topic has nothing to do with photography, it is a subject that is very dear to my heart. This story ties in with a goal that I have for Lydia Gillis Photography. A roadmap […]
