Intimate weddings get straight to the heart of what weddings are all about... YOU, the bride & groom. This is your day, your moment, the celebration of your love and connection. 50 years from now, you should look at your photos and feel those same feels. Your photos should bring you right back into the magic. And that magic happens when a couple + photographer pairing works together seamlessly before, during, and long after your wedding day.

I will book my own flights, car transportation, and hotel! If you’re staying at a lodge or resort, I like to stay at the same place or somewhere nearby. In most cases, this includes 2-3 nights at a hotel, arriving at least one full day before your wedding, and I'll do my best to travel at the lowest reasonable price.
Should we arrange your flights & hotel?
If you're getting married at a resort, they may show you a list of recommended photographers, but it's so important to choose someone who will take the time to plan with you, get to know you, and give you an AMAZING experience + photos unique to you! If that sounds good to you, I'm your girl!
What's the advantage of hiring you instead of a resort photographer?
This depends slightly on the location and size of your wedding, but rain doesn't need to stop us! We can be flexible with the time of your ceremony, especially with elopements! I'm prepared to take photos in all environments. It'll be an adventure!
Our ceremony will be outside. What if it rains?
Most couples book their wedding photography 16-10 months in advance, but even if your wedding is next month, contact me to see if I'm available!
How far in advance should we book our photography?
Engagement and bridal galleries will be ready in 10 days and weddings in 30 days, and you’ll see previews super fast...like the next day!
When will we receive our photo gallery?
I aim to deliver 100 photos per hour of wedding day coverage! Your gallery will be HUGE!
How many photos will be in our wedding gallery?
All packages include the link to an online gallery of high-resolution digital files, not physical prints. You can print all of your photos, as many times as you'd like!

"Lauren's skill speaks for itself, she's an amazing photographer. We were so blown away with her skill that we added a second engagement session! What you can't see, is the kindest, sweetest, most personable person behind the lens. Matthew and I were so comfortable with her from the start. She made taking pictures so easy and fun! There truly was never a dull moment. We were constantly laughing every time we took pictures with her. We couldn't have imagined our wedding day without her. She truly was our favorite wedding vendor."
You're hiring a friend, not another vendor
Angela, 2019 bride
Stephanie, 2020 bride
"Lauren has been by far my favorite vendor to work with in planning my wedding! We did our engagement photos and immediately put my now husband and I at ease! The photos were beautiful, and I couldn’t believe that was us in them! Lauren was thoughtful in her communication and preparation in what we wanted our photography to focus on. Now I am looking at our wedding gallery and it’s perfect! She got every big moment and a lot more of our guests than I anticipated."
she got every big moment and a lot more
"I don’t know where to start on how AWESOME Lauren is. She is extremely talented, down to earth, funny, creative, professional...She makes you feel at ease and confident, because who is really 100% confident in front of a camera? Not me! Lauren knew where to be, what to do, what to say and I LOVE every picture. When Lauren holds the camera, magic happens. ALSO she is super quick with her turn around. Thank you Lauren for capturing our engagements, my bridals, and our wedding day so perfectly. They truly are pictures that we will treasure forever."
Amber, 2019 bride

"Lauren truly wants to understand your vision for your wedding day. She is a beautiful portrait photographer and encourages her subjects to act naturally together in order to capture their relationship perfectly. Her fun personality and energy helped set the vibe for the whole day. Lauren captured all our emotions during our wedding day perfectly, and I’m so happy her work will help us relive our wedding day any day we want."
Stevie, 2018 bride

"From the very first meeting we were impressed with Lauren's organization, talent, and passion for photography. Lauren is very personable, easy going, and will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She has a great eye for detail and captures all the important moments and more. We love how she will give you sneak peaks and and even provide photo galleries ahead of schedule."

"Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with! She made us feel comfortable and at ease every step of the way. Even when it seemed we were running slightly behind schedule, Lauren was a calming presence that just kept right on going till the very end! We have had so many people comment on how beautiful and fun the pictures of our wedding are and we owe it all to Lauren. If you're looking for an outstanding photographer combined with a wonderful person, then you've found both in Lauren!!"
