Welcome TO THE

I'M LYDIA

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.

It’s hard to believe that Dodi is going to be a senior this year.  I use to be Dodi’s Sunday school teacher when she was a toddler.  She was the quietest kid in the class room but also the best behaved!  I have truly enjoyed watching Dodi grow to the beautiful young lady that she […]

Today is a very special day.  My favorite girl in the whole entire world is celebrating a birthday.  Not just any birthday, it’s her 13th birthday!  It’s hard to believe that my little girl is a teenager now.  Sometimes I wish I could freeze time or go back in time.  I am not ready for […]

I had so much fun with this photo session. We were driving to our photo location and on the way we came across this field of beauty. I had actually seen this place before and added it to my list of locations to shoot (yes I keep a log of places and the best time […]

Seniors

So I am a day late on posting this due to technical difficulties but a last here is my post on the beautiful Miss Aubrey! Aubrey was referred to me by my little sister, Kaylee.  She told me she had the perfect model for me and she was not lying.  Aubrey and I met for […]
