Photographer | Art director
I am so glad you are here and that you find beauty in this space.
My love affair with documenting joy filled celebrations began when I was only 17 years old. I remembering watching my father, hands time worn and thick, develop film from his old Rolleiflex. Photographs are little pieces of immortality. We are remembered by the stories we lived, the time we shared together, and the love between us.
Since then, I became devoted to creating images with the same sentiments for my clients - images that are pure, enduring, and unwavering, with all the unspoken and imagined subtleties that embody the human condition.
It is my sincere wish that you will ask me to walk in this journey alongside you and create a part of your story. Let us aspire to a life spent giving love.

At the heart of what I hold dear, is the belief that...
- we are proof of a living God.
- gratitude turns what we have into enough.
- a photograph speaks more than words can; it has the ability to make an impact on your heart, more so than on your eyes.
- we must trust in seasons of waiting, embracing uncertainty, and enjoying the beauty of 'becoming'.
- we are meant to have lives that are well lived, loved, and full of adventure.
- valuing people and experiences over things is paramount.
- what is done in love is always done well.

What our clients are saying:
“…She finds just the right lighting to create a softness in her photos, while knowing the personality and aesthetic of her bride and groom. I was able to trust Lauren, and this kind of trust is invaluable to a bride on a day when every memory is so important. To put it simply: Lauren, you are the best. You know how to capture the beauty in every simple (or big) moment. Thank you Lauren for all your wonderful work! We are grateful."

"As soon as I saw Lauren’s work for the first time, I knew Scott and I had to have her photograph our wedding. In fact, I moved our wedding date because Lauren was booked the original weekend we chose. I am camera shy, but Lauren made both experiences completely comfortable with her gentle nature and sweet spirit. As a result, we have hundreds of beautiful photos that tell our story in a way that is authentic and unique to us.”

"What first drew me towards Lauren’s work was the natural beauty and the emotion behind each image. It was exactly what I was looking for, and so was she. Since I was a destination bride, it seemed natural that when Lauren and I first met, it was just through a quick inquiry email - or so I thought. The next morning, I got a sweet phone call from Lauren, just to chat and get to know each other, as well as discuss the expectations and feel I desired for my wedding. That spoke volumes to me. It’s very easy for a photographer to only communicate through email, but Lauren chose to take time to get to know me, and to develop a relationship, building an invaluable trust. It was a true honor to have her capture the precious moments of our wedding day."
