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 love telling love stories, uplifting and encouraging, and sharing what I know because sharing is caring! 

Wow. In all my days I don’t know if I’ve done a more powerful session than this Antelope Island photography session with Linsey. Linsey hasn’t had it easy. After a hard divorce, she reached out and asked if I would do some pictures with her so she could have updated photos and just a chance […]

Getting to reconnect with people is one of my favorite parts of my job as a lifestyle newborn Utah photographer. Seriously it’s the best. I got to do sweet Henry’s newborn photos when I was starting out as a photographer so being able to come do his new baby sister, Baby Molly’s, photos was such […]

Getting to do my past brides’ family photos as a Utah family photographer is basically one of my favorite things. I become so connected to every single one of my couples so the wedding really is bittersweet for me. It’s so hard for me not to get to see these amazing people after I am […]

I met Kartika back in college when we both sang in the Institute choir. I adored her and her sweetness and testimony then. We both went our separate ways, got married, had kiddos, and I hadn’t talked with her forever so when she reached out to snag a mini session I was doing as a […]

Jon and Melissa are fellow photographers so when they reached out and wanted to snag some of my family minis I was hosting as a Layton Utah photographer, that meant a lot! When anyone appreciates my work it means so much to me. And when someone who also understands the intricacies of photography does, it […]

He wrapped her up and just held her for a long time. My heart was so full seeing these two together. Jenny and Marcus have had it anything but easy. Having navigated through a passing and divorce, I was so so so happy when Jenny and Marcus reached out for me to be their engagement […]

People always tell me that being a grandparent is so amazing beyond description and just absolutely such a joy. To me, this Utah Capitol photography is the essence of that joy. Spending time with this amazing family and watching how Curt and Marsha just loved on their grandbabies was one of the sweetest and most […]

After the Smith family’s photos that morning, we came back to the same spot at Kays Creek to do this sweet family’s photos. What a busy but amazing day! I love being a Davis County photographer and being able to meet and reconnect with so many neat people.   McKayla and Porter had a secret […]

We were just talking, shooting the breeze during these Layton Utah family photos when Jeremy asked me why I had an airplane necklace and earrings on. (If you’ve seen me with jewelry on, chances are at least one thing I’m wearing has an airplane on it!) He asked if I just liked to travel. I […]

They leaned in. Noses brushed against each other. And the tears started to flow. It was one of the most sacred and tender moments I’ve ever seen as an Ogden Utah Photographer. I had asked them to lean in and think about how they’ve supported each other through hard things they’ve been through. They later […]

Let's go create something amazing.
