Based In: Colorado

Hi, I’m Lauren Casino! I photograph couples in Colorado who are looking for an adventurous elopement that authentically represents the type of wedding day they truly want. I’m here to be so much more than just your photographer – I’ll help you plan, create, and bring to life your dream elopement. I whole heartedly believe I have the best job in the world with the most amazing couples, and I’m SO so so happy you’re here!

I believe that you deserve to have the BEST experience when you get married. I want you and your partner to dream up anything you could have ever imagined for your wedding day… and realize that the little dream inside your head CAN be a reality. Your day doesn’t have to feel like it doesn’t represent who ‘you’ are. That ends up being too much stress, too much money, too many people, too much of a ‘show’, and before you know it, your day is over. Your day should be about the two of you, committing yourselves to each other, and nothing else should take away from that. Do you want to go on a hike passing trees and wildflowers to a gorgeous alpine lake? Do you want to watch the sunrise together and pack a picnic? Do you want to drive through the mountains in your Jeep and stop at the most beautiful viewpoints? Do you want to get married with just the two of you and your dog, and let your dog sign the marriage license? Maybe you don’t know what you really want just yet, beyond getting married in the great outdoors, and that’s okay too!

I’m so passionate about this because I believe, without a doubt, that every couple should feel completely in love with the EXPERIENCE of their wedding day. Of course we’ll find beautiful locations with epic views so you can create the best memories, but it’s about so much more than that. It’s about saying your vows to one another without a care in the world because you’re doing things YOUR way, and that’s what feels right. It’s about having a meaningful and intimate experience, doing whatever it is that brings the two of you genuine joy, where you feel ALIVE, like nothing else matters.

If what I wrote speaks to you two, I would love to talk more with you about your elopement day dreams and be by your side to capture it all. 🙂

We will forever be grateful we found Lauren to take our wedding photos. As soon as we saw Lauren's work, we knew she was the photographer for us. Having her there on our wedding day felt right...we planned our wedding date only after booking her, her work was that important to us. We placed a lot of value on the photographs of our wedding, because after the dress comes off and the champagne runs dry, all you are left with are the memories and photographs of your wedding day.

We spent our wedding day in the mountains surrounded by forests, waterfalls, lakes, wildflowers, our dogs, and our immediate family; our day was everything we hoped for, it was perfect. Lauren captured all the special little moments, the smiles, the feelings, the happy tears, the beauty of the day, and when we look at our photos, all the memories come flooding back. Many of our friends were married around the same time and when we compare photos, Laurens work really stands out. Her photos are incredibly special, her photos are beautifully epic. Lauren goes with you when you take your dress on an adventure through the mud and rocks, she fits in so perfectly that you don't know she's there taking photos of your grooms face when he tears up as you walk down the aisle, she lets the day flow and captures the moments as they happen.

Thank you so much Lauren, it was a joy working with you, we really appreciate and value your work. Without you, our day would not have been documented the same. We love sharing your photos with our friends and family and love being transported back to our wedding day every time we look at them.

Lauren is beyond anything I could put into words. I reached out to her September of 2019 to plan an adventure elopement and from our very first interaction, I knew we wanted to hire her. Lauren answered every single question I asked (and trust me, there were many) and she never once made me feel like a burden. We live in Illinois so we were very unaware of the Colorado laws, best places to go, etc. She helped us find the locations of our dreams and our pictures are better than anything we could've ever wanted. Lauren puts her heart into elopements and you can tell the pure joy she's giving out the whole time. We spent 5 hours with her and she felt like a friend we've known for years. We were comfortable with her and trusted her talent. We are beyond thankful we found Lauren and that we chose to do an elopement. She eased any doubts we had and reminded us that eloping let's the day be about us and that was so true. Every moment was spent with my husband which is how a wedding should be. I cannot recommend Lauren enough, she is truly a gift and we can never thank her enough for not only helping us with the wedding of our dreams, but for being that support any time we needed it.

Lauren is hands down the most amazing vendor I've ever worked with. She will truly care about your day and ensure that it is perfect. My husband and I decided to do a last minute elopement to Colorado after having to push back our reception to next year. When I found Lauren, I knew her photos were exactly what I was looking for, but I wanted to make sure we also liked her since she would be the only person accompanying us on our elopement. After chatting with Lauren, we saw how genuine and kind of a person she is. She made us feel so special throughout the entire process and was always there when we had a question. She made what could have been a stressful situation so smooth and easy. We are forever thankful for her help and her AMAZING photography skills. If you’re on the fence about eloping, do it. You won’t regret it. And definitely book Lauren because she truly is the best!

I cannot find the words to describe our day with Lauren. Seriously... she has been so amazing to work with since the first day I messaged her about taking our elopement photos. I gave her ideas of what kind of setting we wanted & she was SO VERY helpful recommending locations.. everything was so easy breezy from day one. When our day came around, she was so extremely patient with us. (I’m forgetful & usually late everywhere I go, ugh.) We had to do a little last minute change of plans because of that but the day turned out perfect.. we were in love with every location we went to. She made us feel so comfortable, and she really is the sweetest person I have ever met & our adventure with her was so fun!! I want to do it 1000 times over. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Lauren for your elopement photos. She is so very talented & we are in love with every single picture we received. She captured so many great memories, some that I didn’t even realize she was snapping photos of. I could stare at these photos every second of every day.. they are beyond perfect & way better than what I could’ve ever imagined. Our family had so many great things to say about Lauren as well, she is truly amazing. If you’re eloping in Colorado, you NEED Lauren to take your photos. You will not regret it.
