So you’ve gotten this far now let me tell you a little about who I am and why I love photographing weddings! I’m a southern girl through and through. I grew up on pickled beets and words like “y’all” and “fixin’”. Art has always been a passion of mine for as far back as I can remember and naturally, it’s what I chose to study in high school and college.
After graduating with a BFA in Photography and Printmaking from Appalachian State in 2009, I moved to sunny Charleston, South Carolina. It wasn’t long after moving that I shadowed a few local photographers and began taking an interest in weddings. Since I went out on my own, weddings have taken me to more cities and countries I have ever imagined; Paris, Cinque Terre, Italy, San Francisco, and Nantucket are just a few of my favorites!
But honestly, your wedding day isn’t just about the details. If there are just a few things that I have learned, it’s that this day will be full of so many incredible moments - laughter, tears of joy, bear hugs, flirty glances and epic dance moves. It’s my goal to capture these moments. I want to make you look and feel more beautiful than you’ve ever felt. And when you’re at some exotic location on your honeymoon and you think to yourself, “man, our wedding day went by way too fast”, I’ll have preserved the beginning of your adventure as a married couple!

Amazing amazing experience
We are SO grateful for Lauren and her amazing work. We threw together a last minute intimate ceremony due to one of our parents becoming ill. Lauren and her assistant were so flexible and kept a smile on their face the whole time even while it rained. They were both so fun to have around for the day. And then there were the pictures..... I can't even fully express our happiness with the sneak peak pictures we've received. The pictures perfectly captured the emotions and love that filled our day. The fact that my sweet *new* husband has gone out of his way to tell me 4 separate times, "wow.. those pictures are just so good", really speak volumes to Lauren's talent.Sent on 07/15/2019

Lauren was much more than our wedding photographer. When our wedding venue informed us they were closing and moving us to a new location she extended an offer to scout the new venue with me. Having her by my side while doing the walkthrough was extremely helpful. We were able to discuss light options and she even gave me inspiration ideas such as lighting my aisle with candles (which we ended up doing and it looked beautiful). During the wedding day both my husband and I felt like we were rockstars and the most beautiful people on earth. Her and her assistant knew exactly what to say to capture those perfect moments of laughter and love while making us feel so special. I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone. She’s truly the girl next door and makes you feel as though you’re her best friend and you’ve known each other for years.Sent on 03/06/2019
