My passion for photography and weddings began when I was very young. I staged Barbie weddings, making their dresses from Kleenex, then snuck Mom’s camera to take pictures of them. I moved on to dressing up my little sister in a pillowcase veil, again sneaking Mom’s camera. When she got tired of me using up all her film, she brought home several Bride magazines from the free pile at the library and I spend hours reading them, then pinning pages of beautiful wedding dresses on the ceiling of my bedroom. When “The Wedding Planner” came out in 2001, my fate was sealed.
Two years ago my mom took me on a girls trip to Galena. She hauled an Aldi shopping bag all over town while we shopped, then at lunch pulled out a present for me--Dream Wedding Barbie--and took a picture of me crying over it. Full circle.
Present day, I am a beetle driving, dog loving home school Mom. I spend my weekends on weddings and my week days shooting Engagement, Family, Senior, Newborn and Maternity sessions. I want to get to work with you for life, so get ready for a new best friend who just wants to follow you around with her camera!
I am very excited to be doing more destination weddings. I have a bucket list of locations where I would love to shoot a wedding or elopement. If you are getting married at any of the locations on my list I will be stoked to hear from you! If you are getting married somewhere else trust me I am going to be equally as pumped to chat!

Great Experiences All Around!
We used Laurel Tree Photography for our November 2019 wedding and it could not have been better! From our Engagement session in October 2018 to the wedding itself, everything was wonderful! We just got our photos back a few weeks ago and we are so happy! They are all so beautiful and exactly what I wanted!
Beyond being an amazing photographer, Lauren was also a great resource in planning and organizing my wedding and timeline. I had no clue what I was doing and she really walked me through planning out our day of timeline. She and Taylor kept us on schedule throughout the day and provided such a great, friendly atmosphere throughout the day. We plan to continue using Laurel Tree for all our photography needs in the future!Sent on 01/08/2020

Engagement, wedding, and other special occasion photos
Lauren did a fantastic job! I’ve never been one to like to get my picture taken, but she made it so fun and a great experience! I was so happy with how all the photos turned out, they really depicted who we are and told our story. I would recommend her to anyone and will be working with her again!Sent on 01/01/2020

Where do we begin, you really don't know what a pleasure it is to work with Lauren and her staff until you've had the opportunity to do so. The professionalism can be seen by simply glancing at her history of work, What cannot be seen is how fun and sweet Lauren and her staff are and how passionate they are about their jobs. We're so excited to continue to work with Lauren for many wedding seasons to come. We LOVE working with Lauren and you will too.
Lauren and her staff rock! They're great to work with, capture every moment beautifully, and listen to the bride! As a fellow vendor, they are easy to work with, fun, and well organized. We're excited to work with Laurel Tree for your wedding!
