Meet Lauren

Life has taken my husband, James and me to more than one place to call home. DC and NYC is where we started our careers! Today we live among the rolling hills of NJ, with our two kids who we lovingly refer to as “beasties.” 
Having spent over 18 years photographing everything from fashion to newborn babies, I decided that I wanted to focus on the aspect of photography I love best: WEDDINGS.
I love getting to know my couples on their journey to becoming husband and wife, which is why I take only a limited number of weddings each year! While estate weddings are some of my favorites, my team loves garden weddings, beach weddings, and any kind of travel!
 I believe that choosing a wedding photographer is a deeply personal choice – finding someone that clicks with you as a person and friend is just as important as being able to create unique photos that define you as a couple. I pride myself on being able to give every client an experience that keeps wedding planning organized, communication constant, and the wedding day truly the best day of your life!

Chocolate and Cof

Really the only "foods" I need for survival. 
While I try to maintain a healthy diet, mostly to keep up my energy for weddings, these are the foods that maintain my creative focus!

Young Bride

I’ve known my husband for half my life. We got married the week I turned 18, lived in Georgetown, NYC and now live in the town I grew up in.

My Philosophy

My photography philosophy is simple: classic, timeless portraiture mixed with candid moments and real emotions that make photographs that generations to come will cherish.

Reading

"Reading" is often times "Audio-booking" so I can edit or drive and still enjoy a good novel!
All-time favorite book: Pride and Prejudice

Picture Addict

Having a job that’s also your hobby can be a problem – sometimes my husband stages an intervention and makes me go on vacation…but I always bring my camera!

Lover of Light

What’s the most important thing in photography? Glad you asked. It’s light. I see everything in terms of quality of light, even when I’m not looking through
a camera.

is the one I'm currently photographing.”
