My name is Lauren and I want to take your picture. I want to laugh with you. I want to be adventurous with you. I want to have a drink, or three, with you. I want my pictures to tell the story of my new friends. I am a destination wedding and portrait photographer that also specializes in commercial photography, special events and adventure photography. I love capturing people in their element, whether it's with the people they love or doing what they love.
I love candid moments, epic booze fueled dance parties, and fun. No matter how you've planned it, your big day is going to unfold naturally. My trained, photojournalistic eye gravitates toward the genuine, sometimes emotion-fueled moments, and nothing makes me happier than highlighting the fact that real life isn’t posed. While focused on Lake Tahoe, CA, New Orleans, LA and Austin, TX wedding photography, I will travel too. Full portfolio available at my website.

We laughed the whole time
We had originally book Lauren to photograph our court house wedding in July, but we ended up moving the date up to May. I thought we were going to have to cancel with Lauren, but she was still available and was willing to travel out to NH instead. Working with Lauren both before and during was super easy. She kept us laughing the whole time and didn't make us feel self conscious or silly. She listened to our ideas and continually asked if there was anything in particular that we wanted to be sure she had photographed. While we haven't gotten our shots in yet, the sneak peek that she sent looks amazing. We highly recommend Lauren to photograph your wedding.Sent on 05/16/2019

Wedding planning was especially stressful for us as we had (at last) minute scrapped our plans of a large traditional wedding and chose to relocate to a smaller one in South Lake Tahoe. It was long and tedious sorting through all the vendors and ever more difficult since we do not live near Tahoe so all communication was via phone calls or email. I stumbled upon Lauren’s work by chance and honestly, it was the best thing that could’ve happened. Not only was she prompt and quick to respond to my emails but she really took the time to help me with any questions or concerns I might have had. There wasn’t a feeling of a canned response or the typical “you’re just another number” client experience.Sent on 07/13/2019
Flash forward to the wedding day my groom and I chose to have a private first look experience. It was our first time meeting Lauren and it honestly felt like we had been friends for years! She made sure to make us feel comfortable, happy and truly made the moment more special than I think any other photographer would have done!
The over all day was an absolute blast in large parts to her. Everyone loved working with her and the pictures we just received back shows it! They are beyond STUNNING and I can’t wait to hang them in our home.

BEST photographer EVER
I cannot sing enough praise for Lauren Lindley. Even beyond her beautiful photography and skill for capturing emotions and memories, her attitude, helpfulness, efficiency, and energy are unmatched. She goes above and beyond to make sure she gets the perfect shot. She even managed to wrangle over 50 family members within 20 minutes to get all our formal shots done in record speed. Lauren won't just be your photographer, but she'll also end up being your friend.Sent on 11/02/2018

Lauren's photos are AMAZING! If you are looking for someone who can capture all of the candid moments of your wedding day Lauren is it! Posed photos are nice, but the real magic comes out in those random beautiful moments. An easy going and friendly person to work with. Highly recommended.
