    Amazing wedding photos!

    Lauren is absolutely amazing! She was my wedding photographer, and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. She has such a great, positive energy that it was actually fun to take photos! Both my husband and I think we're super awkward in pictures, but we felt really comfortable this time around thanks to Lauren. The photos came out wonderfully, and we can't thank Lauren and Playful Soul Photography enough! We're so happy Lauren was part of our special day!

Lauren Dinh

Lauren Dinh

Owner/Lead Photographer

Hey there! I’m Lauren, I’m currently a full time wedding photographer based in Southern California. I’m both an extrovert introvert so most days you can find me staying cozy at home editing away while binge watching some Korean dramas. But when it comes to sessions, weddings or parties, you bet I’ll show up and bring the energy to the table. Between you and me, I don’t run on coffee like most, its pure adrenaline that fully kicks in cause I’m just THAT excited to do my job and see new faces! I’m known for both my neutral yet colorful tones making your photographs look and feel timeless. By now I’m also quite the expert on handling “awkward” couples who have never had their photos taken before. All my couple end up leaving feeling like a pro.

Interestingly enough, I don’t have a background in the arts or photography. Instead I got my bachelors in Biology and even a Master’s in Biochemistry. So how did I end up here? Well back in 2010, I had my humbling beginning where I started shadowing Jay, founder of PSP, on all his sessions. I eventually took on my own clients and now 10 years later I still continue to be on this crazy journey I least expected.

Since then I have put all my love into this business that I am proud of. Although this was Jay’s baby to start but I definitely raised it to what it is today. When people ask me what’s my style of photography I like to explain it as “life in the middle of the road.” It’s authentic, unposed, yet editorial; not dark/mood or light/airy. Most importantly it’s got a twist of style flair that I add that makes it truly mine.

3 fun facts about me:

  1. I took fashion classes back in HS and even participated in some fashion shows featuring my work

  2. Although I was born in SoCal, I definitely have an East coast spirit.

  3. I’ve traveled a ton and have cruised over 20+ times and counting
