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.
