My name is Lauren

& I want to take your picture.

I want to laugh with you. I want to be adventurous with you. I want to have a drink, or three, with you. I want my pictures to tell the story of my new friends. I am a South Lake Tahoe wedding photographer and portrait photographer also specializing in commercial photography, special events and adventure photography. I love capturing people in their element, whether it’s with the people they love or doing what they love.

What I Do

South Lake Tahoe Wedding Photography

I love candid moments, dance floors, and fun. No matter how you’ve planned it, your big day is going to unfold naturally. My trained, photojournalistic eye gravitates toward the genuine, sometimes emotion-fueled moments, and nothing makes me happier than highlighting the fact that real life isn’t posed. While focused on Lake Tahoe wedding photography, I will travel too.

South Lake Tahoe Portrait Photography

I want you to feel at home in your photographs. If it’s an engagement session, it should feel like going on a date (happy hour included). If I’m photographing a family, I want it to involve activities for your kids. We might scramble on rocks, climb in trees, or splash in Lake Tahoe. No matter what the situation, it’s going to be a collaborative effort that lets your personalities shine.

South Lake Tahoe Photo Booth Photos

The first photo booth I ever set up was for an event I was hosting. It allowed my guests to get a little bit zanier than normal (especially with alcohol involved), and it was such a fantastic and fun addition I now firmly believe it’s not a party without a photo booth! Our Reno Tahoe Photo Booth rental includes custom themes, an attendant manned booth and promises to make your event a party.

South Lake Tahoe Commercial Photography

I am available to fulfill the lifestyle photography needs of editorial, commercial, and corporate clients with a modern approach rooted in photojournalism. I value the importance of customer service, planning, and research on all my commercial shoots. Clients include Ski Lake Tahoe, Station House Inn, Harper Soul Provisions, Harrahs and Harveys Reno/Tahoe and more!

Orchard Park Elopement | Vancouver, WA | Julia + Vitaliy

Julia and Vitaliy met in Alaska when she was having a brief love affair with becoming a pilot.  Vitaliy was her flight instructor. As she tells it, they "fell in love the minute we crawled into the two seat sea-plane and that was that." Julia no longer felt the need to become a pilot since she had one now. And then in an unfortunate, but expected turn of events because of 2020, what was supposed to be a private backyard destination wedding in Lake Tahoe, CA turned into an intimate Orchard Park elopement in Vancouver, WA that was perfectly delightful in every way.

How to Attract Your Ideal Photography Clients

I'm a photographer who promises to cuss only three times in front of your grandma, will throw back tequila shots with you at the end of the night on your dance floor, sends koozies to all my clients, and isn't afraid to tell your Aunt Myra no. My ideal client is adventurous and laid back. They are backyard BBQ-ing whiskey drinking partiers that just want to celebrate their day with the people they love most.  They value classic photography and those are 100% the kind of people I attract most often. How do YOU attract your ideal photography clients? Don't worry - this bitch is here to help.
