About

I believe in the importance of classic portraiture combined with the precious, candid moments of a glance at the bride and groom - a first look, an innocent expression, a joyful smile. My objective is to bring warmth to the heart and joy the soul every time you glance at your images.
I am a photographer of and wife of 20 years, and a mother of an 11 year old girl, and 9 year old boy. I love keeping busy! Photography is my passion and part of who I am as an artist. I photographed my first wedding as an assistant while in college. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts with a degree in photography, I continued to photograph and exhibit in New York City. Through my experiences working with art galleries, art fairs, art columnists, artist's studios and portrait photographers, my vision came into focus. As my work developed both technically and stylistically, my passion for photographing people drove me to focus on portraits and wedding photography.
In 2010 I opened my own studio. Since then, I've photographed everything from newborn babies to generational family portraits. There is always something to celebrate and I want to be there to celebrate with you! It is my privilege to be welcomed into the lives of my brides, mothers, children and families as they experience life.

Thank you Lauren!!

We鈥檝e been telling our friends that a good wedding photographer can take great photos, but an amazing one can do that plus understand the bride and groom鈥檚 emotions at any given second, direct the groups effortlessly so the wedding stays on schedule, and more. Lauren Kearns is an AMAZING wedding photographer.
From the moment we met Lauren for our engagement photos last July, she made us feel so comfortable, really leaned into our photogenic strengths, and created engagement photos that were beyond what we could have ever dreamed of. We instantly had no doubts that she would be just as wonderful to work with on our wedding day, and we were right. From the very beginning of our wedding day prep, through first looks, group photos and party photos, Lauren and her team were right by our side getting the most amazing shots and keeping our group on schedule throughout the process. We never felt that her team was in the way of the wedding, yet they managed to capture every moment perfectly. We cannot thank Lauren and her team enough for our incredible first batch of wedding photos and we are so excited to see the full gallery in the coming weeks!

Amazing wedding photographer

From the engagement session to our actual wedding Lauren went above and beyond. There was an emergency flash flood warning in NYC on the day of my wedding and Lauren came with smiles and an amazing attitude. She made us feel so comfortable and happy. She was amazing to work with and even took photos of our dog and baby on the wedding day as well. Her whole team was professional. We loved the way all the photos came out- timeless and really captured the essence of the wedding. Cannot say enough great things about Lauren!

The best of the best photographer !

Lauren and team were INCREDIBLE! Words can鈥檛 describe how grateful we were to have them on our wedding day. We couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better photographer or experience. She was responsive, professional, funny, artistic, and so easy to work with. From the engagement shoot to the wedding day, Lauren makes any environment comfortable and enjoyable. She is also so supportive, positive, and detailed throughout the process. Everyone still raves about how gorgeous our photos came out and that鈥檚 because we had Lauren. Thank you Lauren and team we love you guys!! Can鈥檛 wait to capture more milestones with you in the future!!!
