what if i told you

your wedding day can be everything you dreamed.

Do you feel nervous about who you hire?

Are you worried you won’t get the best images or return on investment?

If wedding plans abruptly change, are you concerned your photographer will leave you hanging?



Lauren is not only an outstanding photographer but is also a truly warm and generous person. We appreciated Lauren’s thorough questionnaire and series of check-in calls leading up to the wedding, which helped us understand our own photo priorities better and made us feel like we were in very good hands leading up to the day.

On the wedding day, she kept us on time while at the same time making sure we were at ease and not rushed.

We are so thrilled to have found Lauren, and can’t wait to work with her again for future milestones!

It’s almost impossible to capture in words what Lauren did for us on our wedding day but she truly captured magic. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. All the little things, from the small but significant details, to my grandfather‘s conversations with my grandmother, to every reaction to the special moments— every moment is captured forever in it’s most honest and true form and the results are unreal. Truly the best gift I could ever imagine.

Hiring Lauren was the single best decision I made in my wedding planning process!

photographer tip

my advice

Choose a photographer who prefers quality over quantity, values you as couple, and believes in photography as a task of capturing intimate moments.

what's up
  with film?

lauren answers all your film questions

Digital imagery is subjected to the ebbs and flows of editing technique trends as photographers learn to manipulate color and appearance in new ways.

Film, as opposed to digital, is a chemical reaction when light is burned onto a film negative. It doesn't need to be edited as heavily as digital files do, and there is incredible consistency between film used today and film used decades ago! It has an irreplaceable timeless aesthetic.

film vs. digital

take the quiz (more yes answers = film!)

Do you want a photographer that spends more time interacting with you and less time hiding behind the camera?

yes

Do you value taking your time to create slow and intentional moments that you can savor?

Do you want timeless imagery that is free from trendy editing techniques?

no

ALL the photos were exactly what we wanted.... AND MORE! She exceeded our expectations and we are so, so, SO thankful that our wedding planner found her! She's a gem- she's genuine, she's professional and she's so talented.

Because no two weddings are exactly alike, I only create custom collections for each of my couples based on their needs. Wedding coverage starts at $6400 and most of my couples spend $7500 on their experience.

Looking for elopement or micro wedding coverage? I offer hourly rates in these special cases. Just let me know in your inquiry form and we'll create the perfect collection for you.
