Our time together shouldn't be short lived - I want these photos to live on with you through your ups and downs and whatever life throws at you. Your gallery will transport you back to your love story and how you felt exactly at this very moment. The little details that make your story - unique.

No two love stories are the same and that's okay. It's your story to own and continue writing. You don't have to put yourself in a box- in fact I actually encourage you not to. Break out of the box, embrace where you are in the NOW. Along the way, I'll show you how beautiful that can be through photos that hold forever memories. Everyone is deserving of this. I'm excited to get to craft this experience with you - with these values at the center.

embracing where you are today - to live on forever.

I'm Lauren!

I'm so glad you're here! You have a life filled with love and you’re ready to freeze time and document this chapter of your story. I capture photos that you can feel when you look back on them. Whether it’s the feeling of energetic & adventurous or intimate & comfortable. Let me show you how your love is perceived, through my lens.

I’m Lauren! An easy going, passionate New York based photographer, ready to document all the moments close to your heart. I love witnessing people light up when they are around the person that brings out the sunshine in them. Looking through my viewfinder, and seeing people beautifully & authentically embracing love never gets old.

All the paths that you’ve wandered down in this lifetime have led you straight to this point. If all the ups & downs, twists & turns didn’t happen the way they did, you might not have met the love of your life. You are here now, thinking about how you want to capture this special day. How you’d like to reminisce about this day, 20, 30, 50 years down the road, still holding their hand. Pictures that tell your story, to be shown in your home, to be an inspiration to your great- grandchildren. See a glimpse of what your gallery could look like!

Freezing time on all the moments close to your heart

Freezing time on all the moments close to your heart

let's do this

I promise you - every connection built on love translates beautifully on film. Let me guide you through this. I would love to tell your story.

You’ll receive a styling guide, outfit advice, detailed questionnaire, location scouting, and a telling of a story through photos. From easy going prompts, to capturing details, to running around, to laughing, to soulful poses, you and your love will experience some magic! I show up to each session, ready to “feel the feels” and read the energy in between you. Then I intentionally direct the shoot around whatever prompts are going to embrace and best showcase your authenticity.
