Hey there! I'm Lauren. I was born and raised on the gorgeous Gulf Coast of Florida. I graduated from Belmont University with an undergraduate degree in Photography and I'm a Southern California based wedding and lifestyle photographer. Providing the high-quality professional imagery that tells your unique story.   


To pursue my love for photography, I chose to study Visual Art with an emphasis in Photography at Belmont University in Nashville, where I graduated in 2017. While living in Nashville, I yearned to challenge myself outside of class room. Besides expanding my own photography business, I also began working for companies like The Nashville Entrepreneurship Center and the fashion brand, Sister’s of Nature to make my dreams a reality. It was during that time that I laid the foundation for what I always wanted to do. I learned how to interact at professional networking events, take special requests both within these companies and throughout Nashville at partner companies. Provide gorgeous photography content for web properties and social media accounts in realtime. Style and assist on photography projects. Also, interact as a member of an entire content and marketing team and attend weekly meetings on-site and more. 


After four years in Nashville and one BFA later, my husband Bryce and I are on a mission to continue our careers in the photography and music industry in his beautiful home state of Southern California. Bryce is an internationally touring musician and my photography partner in crime. Some of my favorite memories together involve shooting and going on photo adventures. With photography, what I really want to do is create images that will make you believe you are lovely, because YOU ARE. I believe we can take the ordinary and turn it into something extraordinary. Also, I personally believe professional photography is essential in this modern world that we live in and that has been enough of a reason for me to never let go of my camera.
