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!

Lake Tahoe Boat Elopement | Julieanne + Mark

Since Julieanne and Mark had originally wanted to get married on a boat, they decided that if they were going to elope, it should absolutely also be on a boat! Julieanne and Mark were married as the sun was setting behind the ridge in Emerald Bay, on the shores of Vikingsholm Castle in an intimate Lake Tahoe boat elopement thanks to Lake Tahoe Boat Rides. Captain Steve and I worked together to create a great experience for the couple and we nailed the timing and the light!

Gifting Prints for the Holidays

You don’t have to be the Leslie Knope of gift giving to nail it this holiday season. Photo prints are arguably the easiest and most affordable gifts to give, especially for the people who have it all. Gifting prints for the holidays should ease your stress and I'm here to make it extra easy on you and tell you how to choose the best photos to gift and some of my favorite places to buy them.

Tahoe Backyard Micro Wedding | Kierney + Will

When Kierney and Will originally planned their wedding, it was going to be a completely relaxed BBQ beach adventure.  They wanted games and good times, socializing and tequila.  As COVID hit, it became increasingly clear that their wedding dreams were going to be dashed and they completely changed course: calling me out of the blue and deciding to elope at the county clerk's office.  It was the perfect afternoon, in my opinion: beers, bikes, and beach champagne. When they finally celebrated they did so with a private backyard Tahoe micro wedding and it was absolutely perfect in every way.
