Texas & destination photographer working with couples who want colorful, fun, & candid photos that will last a lifetime.


hey there!

You'll find me with 15 Google tabs open, planning our next National Park road trip or scuba diving adventure. I specialize in weddings (outdoor weddings, micro weddings, & elopements) and proposals!

Your photos should help you remember exactly what it felt like living those moments. THAT is one of my most important jobs as a photographer. I want to help you feel comfortable and make it easy to let your personality show in your photos!

Let the adventure begin!

Leana, 2022 Bride

"Working with Lauren was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! The pictures were incredible and she was so organized/ communicative. All of our friends and family could not believe how fast the turn around was. My favorite part about working with Lauren was just how calming and present she was when taking our pictures. I was pretty anxious the day of the wedding and Lauren’s presence and great vibes really relaxed me before the ceremony. Absolutely the best!!!!"

"The photos she took were amazing and made me cry happy tears for days. The special, small details she brought to the table far exceeded our expectations and made us love her even more. She made everything so easy and effortless, and again, produced BEAUTIFUL photos. Her communication is 10/10 as well. Our entire family was impressed with her professionalism, kindness and talent."

Emma, 2021 Bride

"The personal touches and CARE that Lauren put into our wedding truly meant the world to us. Lauren's commitment to her clients reaches beyond the engagement session and wedding day. She spends time before the wedding making sure she knows what the couple sees as important for their wedding day, and helped us develop a timeline that made the most sense."

“Lauren truly wants to understand your vision for your wedding day. Her fun personality and energy helped set the vibe for the whole day, which is so important since a wedding photographer will be with you for 8-10 straight hours."

Amber, 2017 Bride

"I cannot think of a moment throughout our whole wedding planning process that we didn’t absolutely adore her and her work. If you’re looking for an incredible experience and a truly professional accommodating sweet person for your big day, look no further… you’ve found her."

Scott, 2018 Groom

"During portraits, Lauren can take control of the situation and get everything done efficiently and orderly, but during the ceremony and all of the other events she can fade into the background and be nearly invisible and out of the way while somehow being right in the middle of the action, getting amazing photos."
