What an honor it is to walk alongside couples as they are in the most exciting season of their life! Marriage is such a gift that needs to be deeply celebrated and it is awesome to watch my couples walk into it with the widest eyes. It is super important to me to not only deliver amazing photos for my clients, but also an incredible experience (aka have a little fun.) I aim to capture natural, authentic and organic images that will be passed down in your family for the generations to come.

I'm a southern girl born and raised in Birmingham, AL. I am married to my wonderful husband, Brandon, and we recently welcomed our daughter Elliot. Capturing life's most precious moments has always been a passion of mine. I love to bring out the true natural beauty of everyone I get to work with, and want to tell your story through authentic photographs.
My biggest priority is not to just be your photographer, but to walk alongside you through the engagement and wedding planning process. I want you to feel loved, heard, important and to serve you in any way I can.

Lauren was beyond everything we could have ever hoped for. She brought out our personalities perfectly for our wedding and engagement photos. We are obsessed with all of our wedding photos, choosing favorites was so hard because we love them all! (Our house looks like a wedding shrine.) Picking Lauren as our wedding photographer was my most favorite thing I got to pick for my wedding day!

“Lauren made my husband and I feel so comfortable from the first second we met her. We all felt like friends throughout the engagement shoot and on wedding day. She gave all of us just enough direction that we felt at ease in front of the camera while also looking natural. She captured our day better than I could have dreamed and I am so grateful that we have such beautiful pictures to cherish forever.”

I literally don't know where to start with Lauren! She is THE BEST! When I first met her, I knew I loved her instantly. She was super professional but very personable and relatable. I knew when I met her that she would be perfect to work with. My husband is a model and very comfortable in front of the camera. I'm the complete opposite! I hate pictures taken of me and I never know what to do with my hands!!! Lauren suggested I might do an engagement shoot with her so I would be comfortable on the wedding day. Lauren made me feel relaxed and let me be myself with no awkward stiff poses. The best photos she caught were the ones of Sean and I laughing. We were having so much fun during the shoot and we were all cracking jokes! I'm so happy we did an engagement shoot with her, the wedding day was a breeze and my body didn't stop to think about my hands lol! On the wedding day, she was prompt, easily accessible, and caught every moment! She is truly a gem and so ridiculously talented. Booking her will be the best decision you've made!
