Yes! I love it. tell me more.
Do you want total confidence that you can TRUST your photographer to not only document your wedding (duh), but to also be a helpful and friendly person to hang out with for 8+ hours on your wedding day? Are you looking for someone who truly “gets” you and brings out the most special, quirky, and fun parts of your relationship? And are you excited to work alongside someone who can help you make the BEST informed decisions while planning your wedding? I like to remind my couples to look around and enjoy every bit of their engagement and wedding day. And while you’re taking in the moment, I’ll be right beside you photographing it ALL!
Photography that you Will
(just like your fiancé)
engagement. bridal. wedding.
So what do I mean by "photos that will last a lifetime"? It's easy to see the seasonal tends that pass through the wedding photography world, because weddings are naturally so visual and filled with beautiful people and decor! Words like "light & airy" or "dark and moody" get used a lot to describe specific styles, but I'd say I land right in the middle. My editing style won't look drastically different than the way everything looked in real life. I seek out bright and colorful backgrounds, and find beautiful, natural light that will make you really stand out!
the real you
I start every photo session by saying "The most important thing is to be yourself." And it's true! If you feel like yourself, and not a stiff, posed version of yourself, you'll love your photos SO much more. I'll help you pose a bit, but the key to having natural, candid looking photos is movement. Those wind-in-you-hair, magical moments happen with a little prompting from me + confidence from you. I'll talk a lot and keep you moving throughout the session, and we'll have a blast!
Send me email to get us started! I'll give you the super simple Wedding Packages Guide, and we'll work together to choose which of the two customizable packages is best for you!
We'll start planning right away and keep in touch all throughout your engagement! Engagement sessions are an important part of the experience and help you get comfortable in front of the camera.
Because who doesn't want more time in their dress?? It's also the perfect way to test out hair & makeup and decide on a bouquet style!
This is when it starts to get real! We'll finalize your timeline so you can relax and let ME worry about the details on your wedding day. Your only job is to have fun!
This day will come and go quickly, so enjoy every minute of it! I'll be like your extra bridesmaid with a camera… snapping away, ready to help with anything you need, and prepared to lead even the biggest wedding parties and crazy fun families!
You see previews from your wedding really REALLY FAST. Like the NEXT DAY fast. And guess what? You'll KEEP seeing previews up until the day you receive your full gallery!
You'll have a HUGE gallery of photos in your online gallery, ready to share, download, and print! You'll be able to relive your wedding for years and years to come!
I'm here to make this part of the planning easy for you both. Send me an email to get started! I can't wait to meet you!

"Anyone needing a photographer has to hire Lauren! You're hiring a friend, not another vendor. Her 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 and we can't wait to continue hiring her for more life moments that need to be captured."

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.
