Changing Your World, One Click at a Time
World Changing, Awe Inspired, Beautiful Storytelling
To me, you are far from a mere transaction or just a client. You are a beautiful couple (or family) with an amazing story and my job is to honor you by telling your story.
I’m awed by every couple I meet, each with their own movie-like romance. Truly knowing you and your history creates a bond. That connection is very important to me and I feel you deserve no less, so I spend time with each couple prior to their wedding day!
When I work with you, I feel you. I feel your love. I feel your hurt. I cry when the bride talks about the gift her grandpa left for her big day. I smile when her mom tells her how proud of her she is. I laugh when the groom comically tries throwing his bride over his shoulder.
I believe love and emotion enhance our very being and sense of connection to a larger world. If you are looking for a sentimental photographer who will laugh and cry with you while capturing your uniqueness, look no further. ___________________________________________
Photography Expert * Bride Whisperer * Mom Extraordinaire
Hello! I am Lauren! I began my photography journey when I started modeling at the age of 18. Little did I know, it was soon going to be such a huge part of my life.
I finished my bachelor's degree in Biomedical Science with a dream of becoming a chiropractor, however, life had other plans. When my son, Noah, was born at 25 weeks and only 1 pound 6 ounces, my entire world stopped and he became my first priority. For many months, he was my only priority truth be told. As he grew older and stronger, he continued to require intensive therapies and I wanted - I needed - to be able to stay home with him. I figured there had to be a way to do that while finding a career that I loved!
A friend of mine was looking for a wedding photographer and, because of my background, came to me for photography referrals. I’m not sure if it was me speaking or that I even took myself seriously when I said it, butvoice inside of me offered, "I can shoot your wedding!" And, the rest is history!
I love to learn and am an avid student of my field, always looking to better my talents. When I am not shooting weddings or portraits, I volunteer my work to missionary trips, NILMDTS (Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep), animal rescues and other charities.
In addition to raising the love of my life, I read, laugh, run mud races, lift weights, travel and spend time with people I love! After all, you are only as great as the company you keep, right?
I can’t wait to get to know you! Please contact me here and I will respond as quickly as I can so we can find out if it’s a match made in photography heaven!

Captured the moment perfectly
Lauren and her team (Yuma, Hiue, and Ryan) were amazing!! My husband and I first met Lauren when she was shooting my best friends wedding, My friends pictures turned out amazing and she was able to capture the moment in such an unbelievable way that I was obsessed and she did it in -11 degree weather! When my Husband and I were ready to plan our big day we kept comparing other photographers to Lauren's and we knew we had to book her and her staff! When the day was here she was amazing! She was so prepared and knew where the best lighting would be and she paid attention to the very small details that were important to us as a couple and what this day really meant for us! Her and the team are all so invested in the couple and they get emotional with you! even though they have probably shoot a million weddings they find the tender and special moments in everyone's love story and they take it to heart! My husband loved getting ready with Ryan and Hiue, they made him feel relaxed and that him and his groomsman could act themselves (which made the candid pictures show exactly who they are!) We can not say enough good things about this company and how beautifully they captured our day! I keep looking at all the amazing pictures because it brings me back to the moment of that day so perfectlySent on 06/18/2019

I cannot say enough great things about Lauren Ashley Studios!!! After spending countless hours researching photographers and videographers for my big day, it was an easy decision choosing Lauren and Chris! To say that our photos turned out amazing would be an understatement! They shot our engagement photos and our wedding and both turned out absolutely beautiful. They captured such amazing photos that we will always have to look back on, which was so important to us and they did just that. Their team is so incredibly talented and professional! Thank you for making us feel so comfortable and confident during the shoots and thank you for capturing such beautiful photos of our wedding day! We cannot wait to see how our video turns out, which we are sure will be nothing less than amazing as well! I would highly recommend them to any bride!Sent on 07/06/2018

If you want the most stunning pictures and videos ever, Lauren and Chris are it!! They are just absolutely fantastic!
