Welcome, friend!

After a friend asked me to capture her wedding day I was hooked!

It was an honor to document the details and moments of a wedding day and I really thought it could only be a hobby until I took a huge leap of faith in 2019 and jumped full time into photography and videography.

I'm here because of you and words can't express how thankful I am!

Welcome to love, Lauren! An inside look at a single, twenty-something, photographer’s attempt at being an adult. I’m so glad you’re here! I’ve dreamt of doing something like this for a while and here’s me going for it.

You'll find everything from wedding day tips, unpopular wedding opinions, hot takes, and personal videos to get to know me better!

catch up on

watch love, Lauren

Thank you is an understatement. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude for what you did on our wedding day. You have given Bob and I so much more than just a wedding video. When Bob catches me on Instagram, it's no surprise to hear him say, "Can you go to Lauren's page to watch our sneak peek?" or "has Lauren had other weddings recently?" Our full length film has literally played as our "referee" in times of disagreement. Although it take a lot to stop an argument just to watch a video, it has yet to fail us.

I cannot say enough kind words about our experience with Lauren. Our COVID wedding day was chaotic with lots of running around but Lauren handled it with so much grace and patience; she basically became my bridesmaid 😂 Lauren made our engagement and wedding photos quick, painless, and beautiful. The turnaround is always so fast, and we have hundreds of beautiful photos and emotions to pick from. Lauren is the kindest soul and such a genuine human. I'm so glad she was part of our special day.

Lauren is so fun to work with! She makes taking lots of photos an enjoyable experience - my husband even said he would do it again! She is so easy to work with and knows every pose in the book so she keeps it moving!! The photos are GORGEOUS and timeless.
I recommend her to everyone. :)

We want you to know that the wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful and we love them. We knew we would love them before we saw them because you do amazing work! Noah and I can't describe how much we love you and would choose you over and over again if we needed pictures for anything.

I just have to say, Lauren, there aren't a ton of people out there like you. You are genuine and kind of loving  and authentic. Not a ton of people can portray those characteristics without trying. You bring an aura of grace with you wherever you go. You are someone I want to be like.

kind words

I can already tell we're going
to be great friends!
