“Lauren made me feel so comfortable on my wedding day. It felt as though we had been friends and could laugh with her when the day could have been stressful.” 

Behind the lens

I'm Lauren, and I absolutely LOVE weddings! When friends and family ask me if I'd rather just be a guest at their wedding so I can "enjoy" it I wholeheartedly say "ABSOLUTELY NOT!" Photographing weddings is not just a job for me, and I enjoy it so much that I don't even know if it's fair to call it work. 


Do you have a goofy family? I love them already. Your wedding gown? I'm obsessed with it. The flowers you so carefully chose? I'm swooning. Do my feet hurt, am I tired or hungry? No idea, I'm running on pure joy. 


I take my role in your wedding day very seriously knowing that my tone, attitude, words, and decisions directly affect one of the most important days of your life. I am not only there to capture your day, but also to be your biggest cheerleader, your advocate, dress fluffer, and lipstick-on-the-teeth checker. But don't just take my word for it, check out my testimonials page to see what other couple's experiences have been!
