Creating Timeless memories for a Lifetime 


Get to know me

I am a Missouri wedding and engagement photographer based in the rural outskirts of Kansas City. Capturing genuine and unforgettable moments of a lifetime is my mission. I'm here to fluff your veil, keep your day stress free, cheer you on, pray over your marriage, and create some magical portraits. Let's be friends!

Hey! I'm Lauren

Let's be friends

Let's do this!

Let's celebrate this time before you are newlyweds, before the beautiful chaos begins. Your lives together as one begins at the altar, but you've chosen to spend your lives together beginning now. So let's document it and celebrate! The engagement session is the perfect way for me to get you behind my camera, see how you interact with each other, make some beautiful portraits, and get to know each other!

Enjoy the Process

Whether you are planning an intimate wedding among your friends and family, or you've decided to invite everyone who has impacted your lives, this is the day that you've been waiting for. It is my goal to not only capture the largest of details to the smallest and everything in between, but to also help make your wedding day stress free and fun. I'm here to document every moment of the biggest moment. If you are planning a wedding in Missouri, Kansas, or if you decided to elope to the mountains, I'm your gal. Let's create some magic together!
