Hey, what's up, hello!!!
I won't bore you with my photography origin story - I'll tell ya all about it when we meet up for drinks.
What I will tell you is that I have the best fucking job in the world. I get to show couples just how cool, badass and hot as fuck they really are by capturing their truest selves at their epic destination wedding, intimate adventure elopement or steamy couples session.
I am originally from Indiana and have lived in Orlando, Palm Beach, NYC and Chicago so far!! I am currently living on the West Coast, SoCal to be specific. My travel calendar is always filled with adventures and I love exploring new places. Planning a destination wedding in the desert?? I'm your girl. Eloping in Central Park followed by dinner with friends? I'm your girl. Hosting an intimate wedding on a private island in international waters? Holy shit, I'm your fucking girl.
My previous jobs working at Disney, in luxury hotels and customer service have taught me that experience goes above all else. My passion for creating and making people happy has drawn me to make photography my "all the time" gig.
It's cool as hell.
"YOU NEED LAUREN IN YOUR LIFE! Not only an amazing and wonderful photographer but an amazing and wonderful human. She made sure from the moment we pulled up to our session until the very end that we were in good hands with her. She made my fiancé and I so comfortable and feeling our best as well as having tons of laughs and so much FUN!"

studying abroad in Florence for a summer then going back 10 years later to shoot a wedding. Getting to revisit all the spots I went to was so nostalgic.

20 as of now ;)
I'm heading to Charleston, Chicago Tuscany and Big Sur. I'm also visiting Iceland for the first time!
With so many talented photographers out there, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the options and decision making on top of planning a wedding.
I won't try to convince you that I am the best option for you. If you've made it this far, then something about what I can do for you must be resonating (and you've made it past my profanities).
What I will say is that my work, experience and passion for photography is unique. Unmatched. Unhinged. All consuming.
I don't do this job for the gram. I do it for couples like yourselves who want to celebrate their passion for each other and the life they have created together, no matter what that might look like. I give a fuck about you and am here to help you tell your story. You aren't just a date on my calendar.
I'm the photographer for fearless, adventurous, badass, bold people who want to enjoy each moment. Because you only live once and life is far from picture perfect. So let's chug the champagne, get the dress dirty, jump in the pool, slap some asses and be our true, authentic selves.
I believe in coloring outside the lines,
ruffling some feathers and living life boldly.
Are you with me???
