Meet Your Photographer
My name is Lauren and I want to take your picture.
I laugh, a lot.
My favorite word is “obstreperous.”
I am an adventurer and athlete, claiming the following to my sports resume: runner, swimmer, cyclist, snowboarder, and sometimes climber.
I am a music lover, prolific reader of literature, and traveler.
The only bottle of wine I don’t like has the word Merlot on it.
I think that guacamole is an all the time food.
When I’m not doing athletics, you’ll probably find me on the dance floor.
I keep a koozie in every bag.
Sarcasm gets you 10 extra points of awesome.
I am a Texas Longhorn at heart and a transplant to the South Lake Tahoe area, which I have called home since 2006. Today, I am a destination wedding photographer available for event, portrait and wedding photography in the Reno Tahoe Area and beyond. I love traveling and one of my former clients tells people that I’m a shutterbug: if I get to travel and take pictures, then even better. Let’s do this!
I have a Bachelor of the Sciences in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, but discovered late in that I’m pretty damn talented at combining my education with my love of people into this kick ass job.
I am a contributing photographer to the Tahoe Mountain News as well as a contributing blogger and photographer for Tahoe South. I am frequently found snapping photos of locals at South Lake Tahoe events.
In the summer I like to volunteer with our local cycling clubs, the Alta Alpina Cycling Club and the Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association. In the wintertime, I like to volunteer with Disabled Sports USA Far West.
I also recognize that not all weddings are lavish affairs. I have a soft spot for small, informal weddings and elopements or otherwise non-traditional weddings.
If you are in need of a budget Tahoe wedding photographer for a small wedding or elopement, I offer an hourly rate for weddings of this nature and I’m your gal!
I believe in personal connections and I like to collect the cool people. If you want to know more about me, you can follow my adventures along in my blog or don’t be afraid to friend me on facebook.
