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.

Can you believe that the first week of 2017 is already over?!  And what a week it has been!  In the  19 years that I have lived in Eugene, I have never seen an ice-snow storm this bad.  The weather has forced a lot of us to stay home and I have been taking full […]

Christmas Eve was just like I wanted.  It was quiet compared to other Christmases but I am grateful to spend time with my small immediate family.  We made and eat breakfast together, help Jeremy pack some of his items, played games, eat more, watched the Cardinals beat the Seahawks….GO CARDINALS…eat more and open gifts.  My heart was […]

  A Look Into Lackland Air Force Dorms After Jeremy’s Airman Graduation the Airman had the opportunity to give their families and friends a tour of their dorms.  This was Jeremy’s dorm for 7 1/2 weeks.  It was fun to be able to see how he lived and how organized everything was.  It brought back […]

Air Force Airman Graduation Day two of our visit to Lackland Air Force Base and Jeremy’s Air Force Airman Graduation Ceremony. We arrived on base two hours early to avoid the crowd and get good seats for the Air Force Airman Graduation. If day one was hot, day two was unbearable.  By the time we […]

Air Force Coin Ceremony | Lackland Air Force Base A few days ago we hopped on a plane en route to San Antonio, Texas.  Lackland Air Force Base to be exact.  We waited seven and a half weeks…seven and a half long weeks to see my favorite boy. July 14th couldn’t come fast enough. The first […]

Yesterday was my first official day back to work. However you didn’t see much of me on social media.  That is because I decided to take the day to reflect on 2015.  I spent part of the day writing down my accomplishments and my failures or areas I need to improve in my business as […]

Dear Curt,   It’s hard to believe today we are celebrating  our 21st wedding anniversary.  Sometimes it feels like it was only yesterday and other times seems like it’s  been a lifetime!  Either way, I could not imagine my life without you.  You are my greatest gift from God.  The odds where against us from […]
