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.

Normally I don’t like courthouses. I actually dread the idea of having to go to a courthouse but this time was different.  This date was marked on my calendar with a big happy face.  It was a day we had been waiting patiently for few years now.  A day that would change many lives forever, […]

Eugene Wedding Magazine Photographer Someone please pinch me! I still can’t believe that one of my styled weddings has been published in Eugene Weddings Magazines. It has been a long time goal of mine. 2013 was a year of getting out of my comfort zone and dreaming big and believing that dreams can become a […]

When I told my brother that I had done a photo session of our dad at Owen’s Rose Garden, his response was, “are you crazy?” “You don’t photograph men in a garden, men need something  manly!” HAHA! I would tell you which one of my four brothers said this but I know at least my […]

Guachinango , Jalisco, Mexico. This year I started working on a personal goal of mine. While I can’t give a lot of the details right now, part of it was me visiting my hometown of Guachinango, Jalisco, Mexico. A place that will always be home.  And just to be clear, I said “Guachinango” not to […]

You know, you know when without a doubt that its God’s will to do something or go somewhere but when you do the thing you thought you where suppose to do or go to the place, you are frustrated because you don’t see the writing on the wall? But because you know it was His […]

I was told the odds of me having children were against me but God had a different plan for my life. He has blessed me with two amazing children. I was almost four months pregnant when I found out I was pregnant with Jeremy (JJ). I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I […]
