About Lauren

austintexasweddingphotographer_res

I grew up in Houston, TX, and my parents took my sister and I to Lake LBJ every summer. This is where my love for photography and the outdoors both began. I was given a point-and-shoot camera in grade school as a birthday gift, and I haven’t been able to put my camera down since. During summers at the lake, when swimming and water skiing no longer held my attention, I started snapping pictures of anything and everything. As soon as I reached high school, I took my first photography class. I always knew I enjoyed taking pictures but knew nothing about composition or lighting. It was in this class that I began to see the difference between a picture and a photograph. My photography teachers were passionate artists who ignited my creative side.

My Photography Method

austinweddingphotographer_selfport2

My background in fine art photography sparks my enjoyment for trying new techniques and playing with lighting. This allows me to create photographs that differ from the typical wedding portraits. Instead of a static, routine series of photographs, I use unique compositions and creative lighting for dramatic effects to accentuate candid moments on your wedding day. Every couple is different and I take this into consideration when photographing your wedding. I enjoy getting to know my clients and translating their own personal style into photographs. During the initial consultation, I will spend time getting to know you and your photographic needs. I will work diligently to capture any specific photographs you request as well as candid, natural shots.
