the wedding experience

Great wedding photographs go far beyond just having any photographer. It takes feeling comfortable with someone who is going to be there when you start your journey into marriage! There is so much that will happen on your wedding day. It’s going to fly by, and some of the details, you may never see (like the flower girl making it only halfway down the aisle before running to her Dad!)

At each wedding, my team and I are capturing the moments that are carefully planned (and unplanned!) so that you can relive the joyous day for years to come.

It is my joy and privilege to be invited into the lives of so many amazing brides and grooms!

“Because you want your most cherished memories to last forever.”

“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

“Working with Lauren was a seamless and stress-less process! A few days after the wedding I was still trying to piece together the events of the day & I panicked.....other than the formal shots I didn't remember seeing all. Then I received her blog post. She WAS photographing our wedding!!!! AND she captured lovely intimate and really fun moments! When I shared both the blog & my panic with my step-daughter she had the perfect response: Oh my God, she was like a Ninja photographer! We both laughed & I thought...what else could we have wanted in a photographer?”

“I knew after the engagement session that Calvin and I couldn’t have made a better choice. {Lauren} not only has the talent behind the camera, but she has such a wonderful personality in front of the camera - a combination that is so powerful.”

- courtney & calvin

“She made us feel very relaxed and the pictures came out so great. We were very impressed with the quality of her work and the friendliness of her service - it felt like we had a friend taking our pictures.”

- kristen & justin

“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

“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

“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

“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

“Lauren was one of the first wedding vendors we hired as we started our planning process, shortly after we got engaged. She was the first to help shape our vision of our day, calming our nerves and helping to turn what seemed so overwhelming into something orderly and easy.”

- meghan & zach

“Lauren and her team were absolutely fantastic! Our photos are gorgeous and capture the day perfectly. The laughter and tears of family and friends during the ceremony and speeches, the photographs portray all of the emotions and details of our celebration. Truly stunning.”

As we approach your wedding day, you will receive a detailed questionnaire that helps me to finalize your schedule. The only unknowns of your wedding day should be who is going to cry tears of joy first! Your schedule will include everything from when your 1st look is scheduled to who exactly will be part of your family formals.

sneak peeks

Your day will be such a blur, and will go by faster than you can imagine. The feelings of the day will still be with you, but the particulars may have dissipated by the next morning. If I could deliver all of the wedding pictures the next day, I would! I can’t promise that, but I can give you a glimpse into some of my favorite moments. Approximately one week after your wedding day, you can expect to see some of your amazing images on my blog while you wait for your final gallery.

online gallery & album design

Your images will be displayed on your personal online gallery to share with your dear friends and family. All of the images may be downloaded so that you can print your images at your favorite printer, or ordered by one of our preferred professional labs. Your online gallery also serves as a place where you can organize your favorite images for your wedding album. You choose your favorite moments, and I’ll create your layout. Your album is always approved by you before it is assembled.
