Hey, I'm Lauren
I picked up my first professional camera during an art class at school when my teacher wanted to “see what I could do” and I haven’t put one down since. I went on to study photographic arts in both college and university and all these years later I still get ridiculously excited to learn everything new that the medium comes up with.
I really do adore human beings, throughout my photographic life they have always been my subject and about ten years ago I found my true obsession: people in love. And yes, I will most likely become somewhat obsessed with you both and will be your professional third wheel all through the planning of and on your day. I am here every step of the way to help and will probably end up as excited about your wedding as you are!
My approach to wedding photography is a perfect balance of blending into the background to capture all the moments that make up the essence of your day in a documentary style (a particular feedback I receive from all of my clients is that my presence at your wedding makes you feel like I'm a guest or part of the family) and then stealing you away for an utterly kick ass photo shoot when the time is right. This is where my creative side comes to life and you may have to put up with me dragging you excitedly outside for the sun set, into the woods, or down the quirkiest London streets we can find. Oh and don’t be alarmed if you see me climbing up a lamp post or rolling around on the floor to get the shot!
I am a punk at heart and love anything a little bit different. I love festivals and am massively inspired by this free and fun-loving way of life and I bring that approach with me to my weddings. I want you to have FUN. Weddings and especially their photos should be all about you being just exactly who you are and that’s all I will ask you to do in front of my camera. I want you to feel comfortable and supported and to laugh when you want to laugh or cry happy tears when you want to cry. You just need to be your absolute honest and beautiful selves and I'll take care of the rest.
