About


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!

Lauren was phenomenal with our proposal/engagement photos!

My fiancé proposed at a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and Lauren was there to capture the moment and take photos afterwards! She was so accommodating, rushing early as I was throwing the plan off (haha), made us feel so comfortable behind the camera, and had our photos back to us within days! She was AMAZING!

Perfect!

Lauren captured our wedding perfectly. Lauren is not only an amazing photographer but she brings the vibes. She is so fun and attentive to any ideas you may have. I couldn’t have pictured anyone else photograph our wedding.
