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.

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 […]

5th Street Public Market was the perfect place for Matt and Courtney’s engagement photos.

Guachinango, Jalisco , Mexico. This session made my heart melt!  It was perfection!  Cute couple in love….horses that cooperated (they can be a challenge sometimes making it hard to photograph), and spectacular natural light.  Oscar and I planned this photo session before my trip to Mexico.  Choosing the theme was easy.  Trying to find a […]
