the wedding experience

Photographs are so much more than just pretty pictures. They’re time capsules that bring us back to fond memories.
On your wedding day, I’m capturing every meaningful moment and well-planned detail. Your photographs are future reminders of the excitement you feel, the love you have for one another, and the beginning of a brand new journey.
From making sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera at your engagement session, to your wedding day where you celebrate your love for each other, surrounded by family and friends.
 I’m not just taking pictures. I’m preserving memories, while simultaneously making sure you’re having the best day of your life.

“Your best day lived over and over.”

“I cannot emphasize enough how great Lauren and her team were. They exceeded all of our expectations in every possible way. Lauren totally understood our style and was great to work with. It was a totally organic and natural experience - nothing ever seemed forced or awkward. She let us enjoy our day and captured the best moments of it."

- anne-marie & mike

Exceeded Expectations

“Hiring her as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning. She was so calming to work with and really made the whole experience so relaxing and enjoyable for us and our entire wedding party. We can't wait for our family members/friends to use Lauren at their wedding in the future so we can work with her (& hang out with her again - she's really that awesome)” 


The Best Decision

“We are so thankful we found a venue that had her available dates (LOL)! Lauren helped us feel stress-free and made everything feel so convenient, easy, and natural for us. Honestly, we felt so excited to have her be a part of our day as a friend more than we felt like she was “just” our photographer. I’m smiling just thinking about how fun it was! Not only were they both organized, directive, friendly, and just incredible with us and our families, BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THE PICTURES! We are at a loss for words!”

- jen & Jon

More than a Photographer

“Aside from Lauren being the kind of girl that you'd want to grab a drink with(Lauren, can we be friends??), her photos are STUNNING. I've received endless compliments on photos from both our engagement session and our wedding day, and at the end of the craziness that is planning a wedding, you're left with your photos. I can't imagine if mine were from anyone but her!.”

- stacy & fil

Personable & Talented

“I had very little idea of the ebb and flow of my wedding day, however I left our first meeting with a very concrete plan and itinerary. The day of our wedding, she was both flexible and patient, yet still kept us, the wedding party and families, on schedule to ensure that we had the beautiful pictures to reflect the magical day.”

- carolyn & kevin

Organized & Prepared

“Lauren takes the time to really get to know her couples before she photographs them to make sure personalities jive. When it comes time to the wedding day, her professionalism is outstanding and really captures the moments of the wedding as if the moment was being relived right in front of you while viewing the photos. I can't be thankful enough for our decision to go with Lauren for our wedding photographs! I hope our friendship continues on into life's adventures.”

- danielle & travis

Professional & Friendly

“I still look at the pictures and get choked up sometimes. My Wife is so beautiful and {Lauren} captured our day so well."

- krista & brian

Captured Perfectly

“She is amazing from every perspective-- professionally, creatively, and personally! Lauren was so organized and responsive. She had great ideas and even came with us to the venue to do a walk through before our big day. By the time the wedding day rolled around, we knew her work was incredible and we were excited because after working with her so much, we considered Lauren our friend! After the wedding was over, Lauren made me cry tears of joy. Every single photo was stunning. Lauren is pleasant, patient, kind, funny, professional, and all around amazing.”

- samantha & eric


'The morning of the wedding was of course a bit chaotic but the second I saw Lauren walk in my nerves truly faded. Lauren was such a big part of our day and we are so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her and can’t wait to work with her again in the future.”

- Emily & Scott

Calming & Helpful

"I worked with Lauren at a photography studio as an intern one summer, with a pro photographer who was trusted to take my family's photos for years, so I knew she learned some tricks from one of the best. When she left to start her own studio, I knew who my wedding photographer would be before I knew who my husband would be. The photos from my wedding in May were fantastic, even though it was raining pretty much all day, and I was ASTOUNDED.”

- amanda & Alex
