Lydia Gillis

I am destination wedding photographer based in Eugene, Oregon.  I have been in business since 2012.  I am a wife.  I have been married to my best friend, Curt, for 22 years.  I have two amazing teenagers, Jeremy and Vanessa.  They are my greatest joy! I am a lover of life and love anything that has nuts and chocolate.  I have the cutest miniature schnauzer named Sir Chauncey.  I love the Northwest and all the natural beauty it offers.  I love to chase waterfalls and go on nature hikes.  I love fashion but feel my best in an old pair of jeans and t-shirt.  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’s cuisine.

Ashley Cook

My journey in photographing started when my sister handed me her old 35mm camera and said “Go have fun!”. I was hooked! I haven’t been able to put a camera down since. I love using natural light to create soft, organic and romantic photographs.

Lynn Marie Chapman

Lynn Marie is a native Oregonian born & raised on mountain adventures and coffee. 

A graduate of Sheldon High School & the University of Oregon, Lynn Marie worked for 8 years at an advertising agency as a graphic designer where she fine tuned her editing and layout skills. In 2007, after leaving the advertising world, she turned her focus to her life long passion of photography & started her own photography business in Eugene.

Lynn Marie splits her photo session time between Eugene & Bend. She originally fell in love with central Oregon landscape photography as a child, traveling to family property on the Deschutes River.  This love of landscapes & nature has evolved over the years to include lifestyle & wedding photography using natural light & the beauty of nature as a backdrop.  She shoots year round but in the summer you can usually find her sitting by the Deschutes River holding a camera in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.

Ann Hughes

I started photography as a hobby in 2004, and taught myself by way of an old photography textbook and a Nikon FG 35mm film camera. Soon enough, I started on with digital, and began photographing friends. Then friends’ weddings. Then friends’ families. And wouldn’t you know, I was hooked. I have worked as a freelance photographer since 2005, photographing weddings, special occasion photography, and portraiture. I have found that photographs become a reminder of how fleeting, wonderful and precious life really is. And this is WHY I do what I do - to help document those special moments in your life for you to cherish and share for all years to come.
