After scrolling for countless hours on Pinterest I came across a photo, which led us to Lauren’s Instagram and immediately we were sold. Lauren’s eye for detail and photography style was exactly what we envisioned for our wedding. We loved that...
you could also book a videographer through her company as well! I will note that you should book them way in advance if you can because we almost didn’t get the date even over a year out and I’m so happy we did! Her and her team were rockstars and we had such a great experience with great people! Thank you again!

rd us out about what we wanted for our wedding. There was not a single negative thing about the whole experience. Once the photos arrived I cried with excitement as they were exactly what we wanted. Moody/creative/artistic/scenic/thoughtful etc etc etc.... the photography and editing were 10/10. I have never looked at a photo of myself and loved it before until we received these photos back. Lauren was also extremely receptive of my husband wanting a specific change on a couple of photos and did that with no hesitation. It really felt like she TRULY wanted to make us happy with our photos whereas some other photographers are NOT like that and are only in it for the money. I am sad that I wont get to get married again and re-hire LDP as our wedding photography team as the experience and wedding day/trip was nothing short of a dream. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts LDP.

bonus that she is also an extremely nice, kind and thoughtful individual too. My now husband and I found her while browsing Instagram and we instantly knew we needed to book her. She was one of our first vendors we booked (almost 2.5 years before our actual wedding), and from then on, working with her and her team was smooth and effortless. We had to postpone due to covid and she was extremely accommodating and made the entire process easy for us, especially in such a time of uncertainty.
Onto the photos....they are absolutely stunning. They turned out better than we could have imagined and we are so so happy we chose Lauren to capture our special day. She followed up with us multiple times to ensure we were happy with the finished product, and we are SO in love with our gallery. We would highly recommend working with Lauren and her team!

Lauren set us with one photographer in Salt Lake City. She was super sweet and made us feel very comfortable. She had multiple poses planned and was our very own hype team. She was definitely a trooper being that it was in the snow at the end of January at sunset.
Lauren set us up with two photographers and two videographers for our wedding in Oahu, Hawaii. The team of four were very professional and fun to work with. They worked very well together and captured our special day. We would recommend them to anyone.

The entire process from the first time I reached out to Lauren up until the wedding day was so easy and stress free she was easy to work with and very professional. We hadn't done any engagement photos so I was a little nervous of how comfortable we'd be taking the photos and we seriously had SO much fun. Lauren was such a sweet, fun person who brought great energy and made us feel so comfortable the entire time.

Prior to us meeting, I shared with her what I wanted and what my vision was and Lauren definitely executed. I was 35 weeks pregnant and she made me feel so comfortable and pretty, which is a hard task at the stage in pregnancy. We got to know each other within such a short amount of time and she is so funny too! My husband and I kept on laughing and now I know why she’s able to capture a couple’s story.
I highly recommend Lauren because she won’t let you down, whatever the occasion may be. She will make you feel at ease and you will feel so comfortable that your pictures will turn out amazing and not stiff at all. She won’t rush you and will make sure to capture the moment at every angle. Your wedding day is one of the most important days and every couple should have that day perfectly captured for a lifetime of memories.

She was prompt with photo delivery, excessive in the work she did for us, and enduringly joyful, professional, and artistic in her art. At the end of the night on our wedding, she found me, handed me a card, and gave me a huge hug. I sat down at the table and read the sweetest message from her and it is little gestures of grace like this that Lauren brings to the entirety of the experience with her. Everything is done with so much love, care, and thought that I cannot be grateful enough for her, especially as, no matter what my physical hang-ups about my looks were, Lauren, in every photo delivered, made me look and feel like a GODDESS birthed of Beyonce herself.

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 ...

The teasers we received were absolutely flawless and we can't wait to use you for anniversary photos when we visit in the future!!

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 pr...
etty 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.

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!
I am Lauren and here's a bit of me and my story!
I'm 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.
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.
It truly is a reward working with each unique couple and learning about who they are, how they met, fell in love and their story!
