During my travels, I have been fortunate enough to meet people from all walks of life; when I met Lauren, I knew I had met a rare individual. She is kind beyond measure and is the type of person I would always want to call a friend.
Her talents are not just in the click of a camera; she has the ability to capture a moment that can tell a whole story. I recently married my best friend in Tofino, BC; Lauren and her husband, Alex, made the trek all the way from Nashville to this tiny town on an island off of main British Columbia. She had never seen the light or the land in Tofino, yet she captured every image with precision and warmth.
I love sharing my wedding photos with friends and family, even strangers on occasion, and each time someone sees the photos they have a common reaction – absolutely stunning. I can never thank Lauren enough for being a part of my wedding; she captured the love Patrick and I feel for each other in each photo she took. You are a true visionary and an even better human – thank you for being you!
I could not have asked for a better experience with Lauren. In advance of the wedding, she took the time to get connect with my then fiancé and I over Skype and phone to get to know us. On the day of the wedding she was calm, cheery and professional, and had the ease of feeling like an old friend. Lauren made smart photo suggestions, but also let us to go with the flow, which we greatly appreciated. Her photos blew us away. Her portrait work and attention to movement is stunning. More than anything, I was amazed that she captured so beautifully so many happy, teary, and laughter-filled images without us noticing a thing. Looking through our photos allowed us to savor and more deeply appreciate all of those special moments that flew by on our wedding day. We’re so grateful that we found her!
I accidentally discovered Lauren on vogue.com, while I was browsing for some inspiration photos for our tabletops. I had pushed finding a photographer to the back burner for the moment, because despite recommendations from very trusted sources and despite working in magazines and having access to some of the best photographers in NYC, I still wasn’t convinced I’d found the right one for us. Then I stumbled across a slideshow of gorgeous wedding images and knew I’d found the one. My husband and I are beyond lucky that Lauren was available for our date. We can’t recommend her highly enough. From a professional standpoint, she got every shot on our list (even the ones that, in the busy bliss of the day, I had completely forgotten about). Prior to the wedding, she even helped me work out a schedule for the day, including when my wedding party and I needed to be wear, to optimize the lighting. She seemed to be everywhere at once, without being intrusive in the slightest. She was so personable and at ease, several guests mistook her for a fellow wedding guest who happened to be holding a very nice camera, and that level of comfort shows through in the perfectly candid, authentic tone of our photos. My husband and I are both pretty camera-shy, but we felt so natural with her that every shot was an enjoyable experience. Lauren’s eye for detail is exquisite, and I’m so happy we were able to work with her – our photos are unique and beautiful. We have all the wedding standards, from family portraits to detail shots of our invitation suite, but there is nothing standard about the images or the way Lauren managed to shoot them. The portfolio on her website really speaks for itself, but we are so happy to recommend her as a person as well. PS – I should add that my mother, who ordered mounted prints just days before Christmas, and received them before Christmas Eve, is now under the impression that Lauren is not just a talented photographer, but superhuman.
Lauren embodies passion in everything she does and her photography is such clear evidence of that. We met Lauren for the first time two days before our wedding and she instantly felt like family. Moments with her were effortless and genuine because she truly loves people and loves marriage. She was invested in us and in creating the look we wanted for our photos, we barely had to explain our style for her to see the vision. Her passion and intuition are matched and rivaled by her talent, an artist in every sense of the word. It would have been reckless to trust anyone else to document the greatest day of our lives. We adore you Lauren.
I LOVED working with Lauren on my wedding day. Not only are her photographs truly exceptional, she and her team made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole process. Our friends and family were all completely blown away by how she was able to so perfectly capture everything. Thank you Lauren!!
Lauren, dearest Lauren,
I simply cannot tell you how amazing of a job you did with our engagement session. I literally had to stop and take a break half way through to regain composure and stop my emotions from (positively) overwhelming me. Viewing those amazing moments you captured (quite literally) made me fall in love with Haley all over again. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, from the very bottom, and entirety, of my fluttering, love struck heart.

I’ve never felt so comfortable in front of a lens before. Lauren knows how to make you feel at ease the entire time. Her attention to detail is incredible and she really pays attention to what you want. I feel honored to have had her do photos for me. She is the best of the best!!
Lauren, we wanted to thank you for the gift box & photos. It’s something we will cherish for many years to come. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have found you. You have exceeded our expectations & beyond. You were such a pleasure to work with & our entire family agrees. We never realized how beautiful our wedding actually looked, and you captured every bit of it.

Lauren’s work speaks for itself, she’s just a ridiculously talented human being, but then you meet her and instantly want to make her your friend. Lauren shot our wedding a few months ago and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She has so much enthusiasm and love for what she does, it’s just wonderful to be around. We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful photos and overall experience. She’s the best!!
Being a wedding photographer myself, I have very high expectations. I can’t help it. Lauren was so extraordinarily wonderful to work with and our shots are perfect. She has such a rich & beautiful aesthetic and was such a joy to share our wedding day with.

Working with Lauren was a dream! She was extremely supportive of my ideas for the wedding and was always willing to offer advice as well. She was so organized which helped me feel more calm the day of the wedding – as much as I possibly could. I am so thankful that we chose to go with her so that we have beautiful and TIMELESS wedding pictures. I have the type of wedding pictures now that people always say “Those are amazing! Who was your photographer?” Both my husband and I are eternally grateful for pictures we can cherish forever
Lauren is such a phenomenal photographer with excellent people skills and professionalism. She photographed my wedding, and my jaw dropped when I received my images! Just absolute stunning work! You will not regret working with her!
