BECAUSE LOVE IS AWESOME
Oregon wedding photographer
Hey there! If you are a couple completely and utterly head over heels in love with each other, cant keep your hands off, cheeks hurt from smiling, laughing til you cry, always touching or snuggling in some way, and just so damn excited for life together– I am Lauren, it’s nice to meet you, I am your wedding photographer. I want to work with couples who understand one of the few things you take away from your big day (besides your sweet new spouse) is your photos, so I will be there photographing anything and everything from your big day telling your love story along the way, like the window light falling on your wedding dress while you slip it on, your first married kiss, snapping candid images of you embracing your best friends in a happy tearful hug after your ceremony, parents busting out dance moves never seen before, and maybe even embarrassing jokes during open mic toasts. Just promise me we will sneak away at sunset for a quiet break from the party for gorgeous glowy portraits of you two fresh in wedded bliss because those will be your favorite images from the day.
I am here for the heart racing, cant catch your breath, head spinning, time stopped, and everything peacefully in place at the same time kind of love.
When I am not toting a camera and fluffing your wedding dress, you can find me in my back yard tending to my garden and grilling up the perfect burger with my two sweet sons and our herd of pets- 2 cats and 1 dog.. and counting. Country music will be playing and wine will be in my glass. I believe nothing is better than fresh air, sunshine, and dirt on my boots. I am a homebody by nature, lucky to live pretty close to our dream life. I take great joy in the simple joys of motherhood and homesteading. Big goals are to one day restore an early 1900’s farm house, get over my fear of chickens, and become the next Joanna Gains/Pioneer Woman. Other favorite things include the Bachelor, all white bed sheets, and fresh peonies in a mason jar on my counter.
