Hi, Friend! I’m Lauren.

Thanks for stopping by to get to know me and to glance at my work! I’m Lauren; I am happily married to the most loving, selfless, supportive man. I’m still blown away that I get to call myself His wife. I am the dog mommy to the most adorable (ok, so I’m a little biased) goldendoodle. Yes, he looks like a teddy bear, and yes, he gives the best cuddles. Most importantly, I love Jesus, and see my full purpose to be in Him and Him alone. He is the reason I am in this business, and He is the credit for any success.

My start to this photography journey is kind of a funny one. I was the middle school girl who had a hand-held camera and would spend HOURS (literally) out in the yard taking pictures (that I thought were REALLY good) of really whatever I could. I have always been so intrigued by the creative process behind photography. Growing up I always thought that it would be the most amazing thing to photograph people and their stories. I never believed that it could actually be my job.

I believe the Lord gives us passions. I also believe He truly has the desire to see those passions flourish in our hearts if He is given the glory. Simply put, that is the passion behind this business of mine. The Lord planted this desire in my heart my senior year of college. Completely unexpected, and it seems completely surreal that He has taken me to where I am now. This small idea that was in my head has become a pure JOY to live out. And I say all of this because I have lived it. The Lord is so faithful, and that has become so clear and evident to me through this business. 

“Knowing that I am a part of freezing the most special moments in time is something I will never take for granted.”

 
 

Here’s what I’m all about

 

My passion behind the photography is to tell a story of two people in love. I’m not your traditional point and shoot photographer. I’m more about laughing with you when you tell me the stories of how you met, scaling mountaintops with you to capture your adventurous love, and helping you take calm breaths on your wedding day so that you savor every detail. I’m all about building relationships so that I tell your story in a raw, organic, and beautiful way. Your love is already effortless, so let me capture it in tangible treasures you will cherish for generations to come.

Kind Words

 

“We had so much fun during our session and felt like we were on a romantic date the entire time. Lauren makes it so easy, and works magic behind the camera. I’m still in tears looking at our photos. She knew what we wanted even when we didn’t!”

“There is one thing the photography must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.” - Robert Frank
