capturing life + love in wild places 

photographer for the happy + adventurous


hey, there!



I am a Chicago native (+ pizza lover), now living in Seattle! I married my blue-eyed college sweetheart, Mark, + I love the little life we have together. My days revolve around Jesus, mac n cheese, sitting in front of the fireplace, traveling the world, cookies n' cream ice cream, our dog Goose, and anything that involves an adrenaline rush. 

For me, photography is more than just giving you beautiful pictures. With me, you'll have an experience. My goal is for you to leave our shoot feeling celebrated, loved, + known...and with a little dirt on your shoes! I want your face to hurt from laughing, + your hair a little messy: all signs of an adventurous day worth remembering.

"Lauren took the time to know, and I mean truly know, the two of us as individuals and as a couple. Lauren worked with us every single step of the way, and she was always available to communicate with us! Lauren took the most beautiful parts of our relationship and captured them for us to have forever. Lauren was so positive and loving, and we love her for that! There isn’t anyone else we would’ve wanted to photograph our engagement and wedding."
