When I started photography, I soon realized that I wanted to explore the world and capture incredible stories through the lens of my camera. My goal as a photographer is to capture your story like a movie. There will be some guidance on how to pose, but I will also give you some prompts so I can capture those candid moments we all love. I want you to be focused on each other and not the clicking of my camera. I have been a Wedding + Portrait photographer for four years and I can't wait to tell your story!

My  approach

Hi,  i'm Lauren

I'm 23 years old, based in Kansas City and I have a passion for capturing love stories. I am a lover of Starbucks, animals, and hanging out with family. I have two kitties of my own that I adopted from a local shelter named Skye + Shaggy. Since starting my buisness, I've had the privilege to travel all over the US photographing couples at some of the most beautiful locations. I'm extremely lucky to be doing what I love and what I do best which is Weddings/Elopements + Seniors.

Claire + Corey

Lauren, you captured our love as it is. Your work is authentic and you let us be us. You turned what we have into a work of art, and through your craft, Corey and I get to see our connection unfold like a story through your pictures. We always felt so comfortable around you. We had so much fun, and you were willing to do whatever it is we wanted! On your end you made some of the most special moments in our lives a masterpiece. Nothing was ever forced, and you didn’t miss a detail as our session and wedding day flowed. You have a natural and Earthy-toned style, which we love, combined with unique angles and perspectives to shoot from. It was everything we could’ve asked for and more for our wedding day. You’re a kind person who enjoys what they do, and that’s easily conveyed through the grandeur of the images you capture. 

OH! MY! WORD! lauren, i’m so obsessed with how these pictures turned out! it’s exactly what i had envisioned and hoped for! thank you for making this process so fun, easy and enjoyable! feeling so grateful for you 


My husband and I were lucky enough to have Lauren photograph our wedding in San Clemente this past October. She was so incredible to work with and made us both feel extremely comfortable. Lauren’s efficient communication, schedule flexibility, and sweet personality took such a huge weight off of my shoulders during the planning process. We’re so obsessed with our photos and are blessed to have them to look back on forever.
