I had a destination wedding and used Lauren and her team to capture it and the photos turned out absolutely stunning!! She was such a gem to work with and accommodated to my every need, like getting me water or holding my train when my husband wasn't there, she offered me snacks when she overheard me saying how I starving I was and just did simple things a bride doesn't expect from their photographer! You are so appreciated!! The teasers we received were absolutely flawless and we can't wait to use you for anniversary photos when we visit in the future!!
Lauren had us rolling laughing with her crazy stories and jokes throughout our entire session with her! I loved her energy and she made me so comfortable and relaxed! I am ecstatic about the outcome our photos- they're playful and fun and romantic and candid and so just US! I love them! Thank you again x a million. With love, Toni
I looked forever for someone I connected with who also shared the same sort of aesthetic that I wanted for my wedding photos and I found that here. As an untraditional couple who were doing things the least traditionally way possible, I felt like Lauren got my vibe and was the perfect person to have alongside me on my day. My photos are so beautiful, so unique, so fun, so me and I LOVE them!!!
My coordinator referred me to Lauren after telling her I wanted something special and unique when it came to photography. She replied with, "ohhh I have the perfect person for you" and boy was she right! I wanted my photos to be different and have character and I got everything I wanted and more! They were so romantic and moody and absolute perfection!!
Thank you for an amazing experience and wonderful photos!! I had an amazing time working with you and can't for you to shoot our anniversary photos next year!!
Lauren not only takes breathtaking pictures, but she is also a great person and had the perfect energy for our wedding. We had a pretty non-traditional wedding with lots of shenanigans and she captured the essence of our day better than I could've ever imagined. She has a positive, down for anything type attitude and I loved working with her and her assistant!!
Such a fun photographer and crew! They totally embraced me and my hubby‘s craziness and our bridal party’s and had a blast with us! Love her, her photos and work ethic!! Thank you so much Lauren!!
I got my wedding photos back last week and I literally can not stop looking at them and showing them to everyone! They are absolutely beautiful and everything I have ever dreamed of! Thank you so SO much Lauren and your wonderful team!!
I hired Lauren after being referred to her from one of my girlfriends that used her for her wedding and was so pleased at how responsive she was via email and on the phone and how much she worked with me. She helped me iron out my timeline, spoke with my coordinator, edited more images than I expected and went out of her way throughout the entire process to make me feel at ease. I wish I was getting married every year and would hire her again and again and again! I highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married and wants someone who is extremely talented, easy to work with, super organized and fun!
Lauren was the best money we spent for our wedding. She was SO sweet and easy to work with, she made everyone comfortable throughout the hectic picture taking time. Our package came with an engagement set that we werent sure we would have time to do, I am SO happy we made the time for it. It gave us a good change to get to know Lauren before the big day and she did an amazing job of catching my new husband and I just being ourselves with each other.
If you're looking for a wedding photographer, this is the one! She is so personable and really made an effort to make a connection with us before shooting. Not to mention, her work is absolutely stunning! I have had so many friends say that our pictures look like they could be in a magazine. We had a small, intimate wedding, and her works reflects that in a beautiful way. Oh, and her pricing is very reasonable. We wanted to stay within our budget, and she worked with us to give us exactly what we were looking for. Lauren, we cannot thank you enough!
The feeling you receive from your wedding photos is something no one can fully describe! Warmth though, is a good place to start. Lauren was so professional and comforting. She made my wedding experience easy and care free (something that is pretty hard when you're on the actual day). It was never weird or awkward although I am not someone who likes to have their picture taken! She worked with suggestions/requests and brought her own take from experience. Whimsical, artistic, thoughtful, and fun and loving. Just a few ways to describe the photos that will last a lifetime and the photographer who shared my special day with me.
Lauren Rocks!! The wedding photos she delivered truly captured the essence we were looking for and I'm so looking forward to working with her again in the near future!! xx Hann
So much love!!! Lauren is an amazing artist and person! She is so creative and truly loves what she does and you can see it in how she works and her work alone! She captured my wedding in such an artistic and beautiful fashion and I couldn't be more thankful to have found her!
As a bride who loved the planning process, I really appreciated all the time Lauren invested in helping me with my timeline to make sure everything I wanted got captured! She gave me a shot list to fill out ahead of time which made things go so smooth on the actual day and was in communication with my wedding coordinator. She knew exactly what I wanted out of this entire experience and delivered so much more!! I can’t thank you enough and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent wedding photographer!!
Your wedding photographer should feel like your best friend and someone who completely gets you and how you want your overall wedding experience to be! Their involvement should put you at complete ease and bring out the best in you and this is why I hired Lauren! She was was extremely professional and personable and I had a lovely experience working with her!!
Lauren did our engagement photos when I was visiting family in LA and I am blown away. Her work is truly amazing and one of a kind. I wanted something off-beat and untraditional - unlike those posed bright typical photos and she exceeded my expectations. She made us feel so comfortable and captured some amazing "in the moment" shots. Highly recommend.
I hired Lauren for my wedding last fall in the forest! I was drawn to her work because most of her weddings I'd seen were outdoors and had a similar ambiance to the wedding I was planning! Our wedding was very intimate and I was blown away by the pictures because as small as our wedding was, she made it seem like the most majestic and special event ever!!! Nadia D
I hired Lauren to shoot my engagement and wedding pictures and am obsessed with the way they turned out! I love the rich and warm hues the color pictures have and how mood evoking the black & whites feel! Lauren captured our day perfectly and I can't wait to use her again in the future for our anniversary!
Lauren is amazing! She went above and beyond for us on our wedding day and still continued to do so afterwards. Lauren was the perfect match for Aaron and I's "go-with-the-flow" personalities. She captured moments of our true selves which is what we cherish the most in our relationship. Thank you so MUCH for sharing tears, a lot of laughter, and love with us! We are looking forward to working with Lauren again! Much Love and Appreciation, Alicia Andres :)
I met Lauren a couple years back at my best friend’s wedding and we totally hit it off! We literally had the same style, similar personalities and just everything. When it came time for me to plan my own wedding, I already knew who I wanted to hire. We had our wedding at a private estate and the theme was a bohemian backyard wedding. Having been familiar with her and seeing the way she shot my friend’s wedding, I knew she was the right choice for us. I feel like she went out of her way to take pictures she knew would be really important to me later. For instance, I was obsessed with these dreamcatchers I had handmade for our wedding and at sunset she pulled me and my husband aside and got pictures of us with the dreamcatchers, sun setting in the background and it was windy and ahh it just turned out so whimsical and dreamy!!!
I highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking for someone who is kick butt and so much more than just a wedding photographer!! We booked Lauren to shoot our wedding last year and for our engagement session, she drove all the way out to our venue in Napa to help make my vision come to life. Since most of our relatives were flying to our wedding from out of state, we really wanted our invitations to feel inviting and include pictures of us at our actual wedding venue. Lauren went out of her way to make it happen and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera with her personality and artistic input! I loved all of our engagement photos and the wedding ones were even better! 5 stars all around!
Meet The Owner
Hi my name is Lauren and I am a Hawaii based wedding photographer! My style has best been described as artistic, romantic and untraditional. My favorite moments are the in-between and candid ones... laughing with a care, crying during a dance, the face of your loved ones when they see you in a moment- they're all so powerful and real. I am inspired by all things creative- artwork, interior design, food, films, music, poetry, quotes- all of it. I draw bits and pieces from each of these influences into my work and I hope that depth really speaks to others!
