Hi There! I’m Lauren and I’m so thankful you stopped by for a visit! I am a wedding and portrait photographer who keeps it light, fun, and full of energy. I’m based out of Springfield, Illinois however love traveling all over central Illinois and St. Louis, where I went to college. If you don’t like to laugh, then I’m not the photographer for you! Finding your most authentic smiles, giggles, and sheer love for who you are surrounded by needs to come from your joy within. My job is to entice that joy out and capture it….sometimes without you even knowing I snapped a photo. Those un-posed, love-driven images are most likely the ones you will fall for over and over again for years to come. Memories are intended to be remembered, talked about, and hold a special place in your heart. Your memories inspire me to capture your wedding and portraits during the moments that move too fast.
My own love is wrapped up in my hubby of 8 years, Josh, our spunky daughter, Harper, and our two furbabies, Roscoe & Kodiak. I love DIY, home decorating, golden hour, mint chocolate chip ice cream, Zumba, family dinners, laughing until I cry, all sports (especially the Olympics), snuggling with my pups, Double Stuffed OREOS, and I saved the best for last. Hearing Harper say “I Love You”. Sweetest sound ever! My business is all about love, joy, and the experience you have when we spend time together. If this all sounds like something you want to experience in your own life, I wouldn't feel more honored or blessed to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by! Grab a coffee or even a milkshake (another one of my faves) and enjoy looking around.
