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!

Black Bear Lodge Wedding | South Lake Tahoe, CA | Jackie + Rick

When Jackie told me that she was having an intimate backyard wedding I swooned.  When she told me that it was going to be a Black Bear Lodge wedding I leaped with joy.  I've been desperate to work at the Black Bear Lodge ever since Greg and Rachel took it over.  Not only are they RIDICULOUSLY nice people (much nicer than the likes of me), but they've done an amazing job with this quaint cozy wooded boutique hotel.  The lawn is perfect for backyard ceremonies and your entire wedding party can stay on site.  In the summer, I do yoga on the lawn with my friend Jenay of Lake Tahoe Yoga and in the winter, I while away happy hours at their wine tastings in the lodge living room.
