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.

Brighter Friday

Earlier this week someone posted on a forum I belong to a question I thought was very simple to answer…”Why do I love God?”  My response was, because He is my creator and He has blessed me in ways I don’t deserve.  Over the week I have pondered that same question, “Why do I love […]

Brighter Friday

It’s hard to believe it’s already   Friday.  This past week was super busy but at the same time very rewarding.  I went to California to shoot my nephew’s wedding and decided to stay for a few more days to spend some much needed time with extended family.  I wish I could have stay longer and […]

I love this time of year when my reward for working so hard in my garden pays off.  I will be posting a “Brighter Friday” from now on to the fall.  I love flowers and the smell of fresh flowers in my home.  They not only brighten my day but they are also a constant […]
