I’m Lauren, but you can call me Laurs if ya want! I’m a 20-something who loves being in the ocean, hiking, and exploring new places. My proudest title is that I’m a proud fur mom to a cutie tuxedo cat named Tux who enjoys being crazy at 3 am and a Golden Retriever named Milo, who is my big 75 pound cuddle bug.

I have moved around a bit… from Florida, Georgia, Hawaii (can I move back now pls), to now San Diego in Southern California, and let me tell ya, this world is one crazy, beautiful place. Any chance I get, I am on a plane or on the road exploring new places and finding secluded, local spots away from the crowds. Traveling for me is one of the most important things we can offer ourselves, to find connection with other humans and respect and love different lifestyles and cultures for what they are. I have travelled both with groups and solo to many different countries, and would love to help plan your destination elopement or wedding in a place you have always dreamed of. I like to think of myself as kind of the queen of planning from far away and am ALL ABOUT finding the perfect spot for you, that you two feel in awe of.

We spend A LOT of time getting together or chatting, bringing our ideas together to help create the ideal vision, therefore I think you should know a little bit about what I am like! My friends and strangers tell me I am probably the nicest person they know, and I think that is rooted deeply in my values and beliefs to love people unconditionally, spread kindness everywhere you go, and truly, I love making people smile and building meaningful relationships. I am very go-with-the-flow, laid back, and probably laughing about some cute dog video I saw the day before or my own killer dad jokes 😉

If it sounds like we would be a good fit, I would LOVE to hear from you and help with planning your session, wedding, or elopement! It’s super simple, just fill in the contact form and I’ll get back to ya in 48 hours or less. Talk to you soon!!

Lauren is one of the the photography world's best kept secrets and we cannot believe how fortunate we were to have connected with her! It felt like having a close friend with us on our special day and we couldn't be more grateful to her for her BEAUTIFUL work, her huge heart, and the wonderful (bright and yet grounding) energy she brought to the day. Her presence alone added that much more love and good energy to the experience. She is so genuinely thoughtful and BEYOND talented! Her website says that she is an "intimate wedding and elopement photographer for the free-spirited, adventurous, and kind" and it couldn't be a more accurate description of who Lauren is! She is one of the sweetest, brightest, and most-generous humans we've met and all of that wonderful, adventurous, and KIND energy goes such a long way in helping to capture such a special moment in an authentic way. Nothing felt staged, forced, or uncomfortable. Lauren is a wizard behind the camera and she helps you see what she sees, which is beautiful (and it's crazy)! Her work captures all of the love, magic, and emotion you want to remember (and thanks to Lauren, we can)! Can't express how grateful we are to have found her and we couldn't possibly recommend her more! Thank you, Lauren! <3
