Hi, I’m Lauren! Your wedding + elopement photographer

Hey, I am Lauren! I’ve been married to the love of my life for over five years now, and I promise to capture your love story as if I were documenting my very own. I firmly believe that my photography business is not just a career but a calling. It is a way for me to share my God-given gift with others and capture memories that will be cherished for generations to come.

Each couple I work with means so much to me, and I’m down for any adventure. I love exploring new places so I’ll truly go wherever your love takes me! Whether it’s hiking your favorite park and capturing your elopement in the most beautiful spot, running along the beach and documenting your intimate wedding along the coast, or a backyard wedding. Wherever it is, I am there.

I’m based in the Illinois area and I've been a photographer for over 7 years now.

Let's capture a feeling

When you have me as your photographer, I aim to be thoughtful in creating a safe place for you and your love to be fully yourselves. By doing so I can capture all the moments that are truly genuine. I want to deliver a gallery that you look back at and immediately think, "wow, these represent all the things I love about us."
