Hi there!

Hey, I'm Lauren, the face behind the lens. 

I embarked on being a traveling wedding photographer because I have a passion for capturing the joy, love, and beautiful moments that make every wedding unique. Growing up, I cherished the photo albums my mom meticulously curated and found so much joy in photographs from an early age. I saw how it not only freezes a moment but can bring you back to the emotion felt. 

When it comes to preserving the unique emotions of each wedding, I have a simple philosophy: I aim to be a discreet observer, letting the personal and intimate moments unfold naturally. While I provide guidance and pose when needed, some of the most magical shots happen in the unscripted in-between moments, real conversations, and genuine smiles.

One of the most life changing experiences in my career was the first couple that put their complete trust in me. It's these moments of unwavering trust that fuel my creativity and remind me why I do what I do. 

As for what sets me apart, I'd rather show you through my work. And that's where my excessive passion comes in. I care deeply about every couple I have the privilege of working with. I believe it's this care that makes each wedding day truly special and unforgettable.
