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.

I normally don’t shoot in direct sun light but I have to admit that this senior photo session of Amanda left me wanting to do it more often. Amanda is a gem. I am not sure who had more fun. She playing in front of the camera or me photographing her playful  spirit. Enjoy this […]

Alexandra is a natural when it comes to being in front of the camera. I had so much fun photographing her for this 20’s styled shoot. Enjoy these images of this blue eye girl!

This Youngberg Hill wedding is probably one of my favorite! Alison and Jordan are from New York and decide to get married in Oregon. Close family and friends joined them and celebrated with them as they witness Alison and Jordan’s “I DO”. I love all the details and family heirlooms that were incorporated into the […]

Today is Mexico’s Independence Day and in honor of their celebration and my heritage here is a colorful photo session I did of my niece, Alondra earlier this year in Guachinango, Jalisco. And because I think behind the scenes are sometimes  fun and tell a better story!

This Rock Creek Country Club Wedding of Jordan and Raissa was not only fun but it was beautiful, full of energy, love, and laughter.   I am  grateful to Carrie from Camera Art Photography for inviting me to assist her with Jordan and Raissa’s wedding.  Each year besides photographing my own weddings, I also try […]

This downtown Eugene engagement session is super extra special to me.   I was honored to document my little sister, Kaylee and Claudio’s love.   Yeap, I did say little sister.  Kaylee is 19 years younger than me….from the same mother and father, just in case you are wondering.  My parents, well they just love […]
