I help all of my couples with choosing locations, creating a timeline of the day (typically centered around sunrise/sunset), permit requirements, and vendor recommendations. My digital planning guide also covers things like activity ideas, lodging, wedding attire and gear, and an overall step-by-step process for how to prepare for your day!
Colorado mountain weather can be pretty unpredictable - it's a whole different world at 8,000+ft! If the forecast shows really bad weather (i.e. heavy rain, thunderstorms, blizzard conditions) then we can pick a new location where the weather looks better, or reschedule the date. If the forecast shows light rain or snow, we will make the most of your day regardless of the weather. I will make sure you’re completely prepared with the proper gear! I have weather sealed gear, umbrellas for us all ready to go, and I promise we'll have a blast despite what Mother Nature throws our way. Also, overcast days are some of my FAVORITE days because the light is even and beautiful, so don’t worry about heavy clouds either!
My editing style consists of true-to-life colors and tones. I love pops of color and contrast, and aim to keep accurate skin tones. I choose to edit this way because I don’t want your photos to look outdated 10+ years from now with filters or harsh color changes. Many couples choose to get portraits taken for the epic landscapes, and it’s really important to me to preserve all of its natural beauty.

Oh my, where to start….not sure how I stumbled across Lauren but I’m so glad I did. Lauren took our engagement and wedding pictures and they are my absolute favorite. We had to reschedule because of Covid in 2020 and she was so understanding and worked with us through it all. I’ve been in the wedding industry before so I’ve been exposed to many vendors (including photographers), so I can tell you that Lauren is an absolute dream to work with. She made us feel so comfortable and like we were long lost friends just hanging out. Honestly, if I lived in Colorado I’d want to be best friends (not weird right?). We were only around them for less than a day, but Lauren and her husband were such genuine and kind hearted people. We will forever be grateful for the moments she captured of our wedding. They are my absolute favorite and I would 100% recommend Lauren to anyone looking for a CO photographer. BOOK HER NOW. seriously. You won’t regret it.
We couldn't have imagined finding a better elopement photographer than Lauren. She helped us find the most gorgeous locations for the ceremony and photos, she made us feel comfortable and relaxed the whole time, and she was an all-around pleasure to work with. We will cherish our wedding photos forever. We can't recommend Lauren enough!
Lauren will truly care about your day and ensure that it is perfect. My husband and I decided to do a last minute elopement to Colorado after having to push back our reception to next year. When I found Lauren, I knew her photos were exactly what I was looking for, but I wanted to make sure we also liked her since she would be the only person accompanying us on our elopement. After chatting with Lauren, we saw how genuine and kind of a person she is. She made us feel so special throughout the entire process and was always there when we had a question. If you’re on the fence about eloping, do it. You won’t regret it. And definitely book Lauren because she truly is the best
I cannot find the words to describe our day with Lauren. Seriously, she has been so amazing to work with since the first day I messaged her about taking our elopement photos. I gave her ideas of what kind of setting we wanted and she was SO VERY helpful recommending locations. Everything was so easy-breezy from day one. When our day came around, she was so extremely patient with us (I'm forgetful and usually late everywhere I go). We had to do a little last minute change of plans because of that, but the day turned out perfect. We were in love with every location we went to. She made us feel so comfortable, and she really is the sweetest person I have ever met and our adventure with her was so fun! I want to do it 1000 times over. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend Lauren for your elopement photos. She is so very talented and we are in love with every single picture we received. She captured so many great memories, some I didn't even realize she was snapping photos of. I could stare at these photos every second of the day; they are beyond perfect and way better than what I could've ever imagined. Our family had so many great things to say about Lauren as well.. she is truly amazing. If you're eloping in Colorado, you NEED Lauren to take your photos. You will not regret it.
Lauren is beyond anything I could put into words. I reached out to her to plan an adventure elopement and from our very first interaction, I knew we wanted to hire her. Lauren answered every single question I asked (and trust me, there were MANY) and she never once made me feel like a burden. We live in Illinois so we were very unaware of the Colorado laws, best places to go, etc. She helped us find the locations of our dreams and our pictures are better than anything we could've ever wanted. Lauren puts her heart into these sessions and you can tell the pure joy she's giving out the whole time. We spent 5 hours with her and she felt like a friend we've known for years. We were comfortable with her and trusted her talent. We are beyond thankful we found Lauren and that we chose to do an elopement. She eased any doubts we had and reminded us that eloping let's the day be about us and that was so true. Every moment was spent with my husband which is how a wedding should be. I cannot recommend Lauren enough, she is truly a gift and we can never thank her enough for not only helping us with the wedding of our dreams, but for being that support any time we needed it.
All we knew going into our wedding planning process was that we wanted to get married in Colorado. Lauren helped us pick a location, suggested vendors, and answered all our questions along the way! We were supposed to have a sunset elopement in Breckenridge, but the few days leading up to our ceremony just kept showing increasing chances of thunderstorms for our ceremony. On 12 hours notice Lauren let us change to a sunrise elopement, and even offered to reschedule for the one of next two days so we could still get our sunset ceremony. Our ceremony was very relaxed, and Lauren made sure to check in with us and make sure we got every kind of photo we wanted along the way.
When friends and family look at our pictures, they always ask if we knew the photographer before-hand because of how at ease we look and how great the photos turned out. They were shocked when I said I first met her on my wedding day! Lauren is so personable, we both felt like we had known her for years. Lauren has a keen eye for beauty and has great attention to detail, ensuring your hair is falling in the right spot and picks the best views for a breathtaking photo. Leading up to our adventure elopement she was only an email away and always quick to respond! We had an amazing time and she made our wedding day that much better!
Where to start. Lauren was beyond incredible. She was so knowledgeable and helped us with literally everything we asked of her. Last minute changes, fires bringing in hazy skies, location issues… all were handled with grace as she helped make our day the greatest! The images… wow! Beyond breathtaking. Prints on our walls and an album on our coffee table will always have a permanent place in our home.
We had the best experience working with Lauren for our elopement photos! Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, but she's also a pleasure to work with. She was quick to respond to all communication, warmly professional, and made us feel super comfortable during our session (in what can typically be a kind of awkward experience for anyone who's not a model!). We adore our photos! Lauren was able to capture both of our personalities, our love for each other, AND the gorgeous backdrop. We highly recommend Lauren for anyone looking to get beautiful photos of their elopement/engagement/love.
Lauren took our engagement photos and we absolutely loved them! My husband and I talk all the time about this experience— it was truly life changing! Lauren’s expertise, along with the beautiful scenery, combined to make some of the most incredible photos. We 100% will use her again in the future.
Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with!! She put our minds at ease when she helped with choosing the best location, outfit suggestions, and fun tips to get awesome pictures! She made us feel so comfortable and helped us to truly get our love across in our engagement pictures. I have gotten non-stop compliments from our save the dates with our pictures, and we could not be more pleased with how they turned out! Thank you so much Lauren, it was well worth the trip!!
