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.

My Oh My! Can this lady be any more beautiful? I just absolutely love photographing Brianna. She is beautiful inside and out. When Brianna was a teenager she would always give me coupons for free babysitting. It was her way of giving back and blessing  others. It’s hard to believe that this lady is not […]

Last year I did a photo session give away and I couldn’t be more happy for Christi winning it!  I had the pleasure to photograph her two boys, Cody and Cameron last summer.   I fell in love with these two boys the minute I met them.  They are fun, love nature, and there is no […]

So much  beauty to share with you today. I love when I photograph just for fun! A while back I thought it would be fun to do a photo session at the dessert. Oregon has so many beautiful places so why not take advantage of them and try something different?  Back in October, six of […]

It was just another ordinary day. It’s Tuesday afternoon and my daughter, Vanessa, and I are gathering her stuff for violin lessons. I asked my son, Jeremy if he wanted to go with us and maybe let me do a little mini session of him while Vanessa was in class. Asking my son to let […]

Everyone knows her as Caty, to me she will always be Leslie!  I actually like that I am the only one that calls her Leslie.  It’s our special bond.  It’s our sisterly love! Leslie is one of my younger sisters. I have three sisters and she is second to the youngest.  I guess I should […]

I love when an idea that started as “it would be fun to do this”  becomes a reality.  I have been thinking and wanting to do this photo shoot for sometime but with the business of wedding season my idea had to be put on hold.  A few weeks ago I met with the lovely […]
