hey, I'm lauren


I'm an Idaho raised, Utah girl and wife to the love of my life, mama to two beautiful baby girls, girl boss with an amazing team supporting me, wedding podcaster and coach, believer and follower of Christ, and, of course, a wedding photographer!

I have always loved photography. My family used to call me the paparazzi cause I took pictures of them 24/7. And just like any good budding photographer, I took loooots of pictures of flowers too. I went to college in business because I've always dreamed of running my own company and after I graduated college and had my first baby girl I decided to turn my love for LOVE, business, and photography into my career. It's been one of the greatest things I've ever done. I LOVE my job and all the people I get to meet and the love stories I get to preserve forever. It's truly such a gift.

My Go-to fast food meal:

costa vida enchilada or anything chick-fil-a

My happy places:

my home, southern utah, the beach + mountains, traveling anywhere, being with the people I love most

I love to:

rock climb, run, be with my family, travel, bake, hike, be outside, design, and (obviously) document genuine emotional moments

My Favorite shows:

the chosen, the mandalorian, avatar (yes the kids show haha)

I'm most proud of:

all I've learned + how I've grown running my own business as well as balancing it with mom life - I'm mostly self-taught and have learned so much!

Fun Facts:

My go-to snack:

air popped popcorn or chips and salsa

My Favorite Treat:

cheesecake, maple bar donuts, crumbl, and a good ole boxes brownie with ice cream

I love to listen to:

self-improvement anything, Andy grammar, lauren daigle

My couples are:

so easy going, love chillin in a hammock, freakin head over heels for each other, the hikers climbers and adventurers, care more about the experience than getting dirt on their dress, outdoor lovers, travelers, love their squinty eyes and their windswept hair because that's real life, want their relationship captured authentically, laugh so hard and have the best time, are the kindest best souls

I love this adventure of life we get to live

Your love story matters.

Your wedding is as beautiful as you create it to be. No matter my skill as a photographer, a beautiful wedding starts with you. I was the bride that didn't create a beautiful wedding so I've poured my heart into helping couples create and love their wedding day. A huge part of that is providing you with the most emotional, stunning photographs of the most important day and moments of your life. I absolutely love weddings and love stories. You only get married once and it's my goal to help make it the most incredible, seamless, meaningful, emotional experience for you both. Your love story matters and it deserves to be told right.

My philosophy.

You only live once.

So much inspires me and my work. First is you two. Your love story. The way you look at each other. The things that make you bust up. The way you hold each other so tight. YOU are the ones who I pull most of my inspiration from. I make every session and experience custom to you,  your love story, and who you two are. I'm inspired by the love I have for my husband and my two girls. I'm inspired by the sun. By the gorgeous world we live in. By the real, raw vulnerable moments of life. You only get married once. Your kids are only little once. We only live this life once. And I think it's so freakin amazing that we can preserve these moments through photography. 

My inspiration.

It's all about you.

You're not just my next client or paycheck. My couples are my friends. My number one goal is for you to LOVE your experience. I do all I can to make sure you're taken care of. You're not a cookie (obvious I know), so I don't pose you in a cookie-cutter way. I guide you and your love in ways that actually feel natural to you. I bring all the things - bobby pins, chapstick, you name it - because I've got your back. Rain or shine I'll be there hyping you up, helping you out, and documenting the most important moments of your life completely, naturally, and authentically. I love the every moment and believe it's all meant to be documented just how it felt.

Behind the camera.

let's Go tell yours.

I'm married to the love of my life. The love we have is a big part of my inspiration. We haven't had it easy and truthfully I'm so grateful because our love is so much deeper now. Bryce was my brother's roommate and it was love at first site for me. I was 15 :) Fast forward to when I was at college and after a looooot of strategically sitting by him at every football game and even asking him on the first date, we started dating. Then he realized how great I was (wink) and asked me to marry him! We love traveling and adventuring basically anywhere together  (good thing he's a pilot)! You can usually find us going on runs, climbing, playing with our girls, traveling, watching something, playing games, or chatting for literally hours on end.

My love story.
