SARON & NEAL
"I spent years dreaming about my wedding and countless hours obsessing over every detail, carefully curating the day in my mind to be exactly what I envisioned it be. I knew that photography would be my highest priority, and I booked Lauren before I even got engaged. I knew as soon as I spoke to her for the first time that she was the real deal. I could entrust her with the incredible task of capturing my wedding... I felt so comfortable around her, like we had been friends forever; but I also trusted her knowledge, skills, and expertise. I have been singing her praises from our very first phone conversation to now, almost a year after our wedding. People are still approaching me saying, 'I saw your wedding photos, They are gorgeous! Who was your photographer?' On your wedding day, try to savor every moment, but know that at the end of the day, it is just ONE day. After it's over - the thing that does not fade away are your memories. It's a powerful thing to hold those tangible prints from Lauren in my hands or look through my beautiful album and relive it all ... I feel the same emotion now as I did then. I am lucky that I had such an incredible talent as Lauren who was able to capture all of the tiny details, the sweet expressions, the tears, and the emotion of the day."
JACLYN & SCOTT
"As soon as I saw Lauren’s work, I knew Scott and I had to have her for our wedding. In fact, I even moved our wedding date because Lauren was booked the original weekend we wanted to get married. Lauren shot our engagement photos and wedding day photos. I can feel a little camera shy, but she made both experiences completely comfortable and fun. She let us be us, and captured moments of our natural behavior, rather than posing us in awkward or cliché settings. As a result, we have hundreds of beautiful photos that tell our story in a way that is authentic and unique to us. We lived in New York City when we got married, and now in Portland, Oregon, but I know that when we have kids or another life moment that we want to document the right way, we’ll go to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, so that Lauren can capture it for us."

"Lauren is such a genuinely kind person that working with her is a dream. Her work speaks for itself, but her personality is one that puts others at ease, which is so important on a wedding day. When I've had the honor of working with Lauren, I was so impressed with her positive attitude and attention to detail. She is committed to the vision of her client's and she captures that so beautifully."
BROOKE & NICK
"I could not have been more pleased with the experience I had working with Lauren on my wedding. The day of the event, there was so much going on that it was very hard for me to focus. The moment Lauren arrived, she embraced me in her arms and immediately got right to work. She was assertive, and never hesitated with creative direction, which is exactly what I needed on such a hectic day. Lauren's confidence, kindness and guidance made me and my family feel very comfortable and produced the most beautiful photos that I will treasure for a lifetime! She was the perfect photographer for my special day.”
CAITLIN & TED
"To put it simply: Lauren is the best. She truly knows how to capture the beauty in every simple (or big) moment. Her gentle spirit is calming, which was so important to me on my wedding day. 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. Thank you Lauren for all your wonderful work! We are grateful."
BRIAN WATSON, MYRTIE BLUE DESIGNS
"Lauren is first and foremost an artist. She embraces simplicity but rallies a complex set of talents to create beautiful and stunning imagery. I have worked with her for many years and have always been excited to see the results of her work. It is always compelling, romantic, and full of light."
TIFFANY & JASON
Besides the day my daughters were born, my wedding day was the best day of my life. I say all the time that I wish I could go back and relive that day over and over again. I am beyond thankful for the amazing photos from my wedding day, all captured so effortlessly by Lauren. My husband and I look at them all the time and reminisce. Lauren photographed my wedding beautifully and you can feel the emotion of that day through her images. Not only is Lauren an amazing photographer, but throughout the entire process of planning and now long past my wedding, has been a joy to work with and became a great friend. She absolutely loves what she does, and it shows through her work."
MEREDITH & BEAU
"What first drew me towards Lauren was the natural beauty, the light and airy feel, and the emotion behind each image – it was exactly what I was looking for, and so was she. Being 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. It was a pleasant surprise whenever I got a sweet phone call from Lauren one morning, 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 could be very easy for a photographer to only communicate through email, but Lauren chooses to take the extra step to get to know her brides personally, and to develop a relationship that will help her to perform and meet the expectations they have. She is intentional in her relationships, but her desire to always learn more, and eagerness to constantly grow is astounding. It was a true honor to have her capture the precious moments of our wedding day."
