Our approach is capturing natural romantic moments that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. Those moments where you are looking into each others eyes so full of love & happiness, the smiles & laughter between you as the moment before you comes into full view, & your groom adoring the incredible woman that you are while kissing your hand ever so softly. We believe these simple everyday moments are the most treasured ones.
We are so blessed to work with the most amazing bride & grooms'. We thrive at creating ethereal, timeless, organic, & joyful images on film, featuring elegant weddings from coast to coast. From Charleston, SC, California, Florida, & beyond, wherever your love story takes you were always up for the adventure.
Lauren + Michael
Our two fun loving boys Luke & Jax continue to make us smile & laugh on a daily basis.
TRAVEL + ADVENTURE
Michael & I love to travel the world both domestically & internationally. We love seeing, exploring, & experiencing new things & soaking in all the beauty that God has set before us. We value different ways of life & enjoy being immersed in different cultures & learning from them. Traveling the world has really taught us alot about ourself as well as others & has molded us into who we are today. When we travel we like to do things off the beaten path kinda live like the locals in a way to experience the world the way they do from hiking, snorkeling, to exploring different areas & beaches. We have traveled for vacation, photography, as well as medical missions to various destinations including Morocco, Ecuador, Canada, California, Turks & Caicos, Maine, NY, Hawaii, Dominican Republic & more.
CHEESEBOARD & WINE
The caption says it all...this is our guilty pleasure! We love indulging in a beautifully arranged cheeseboard & glass of wine. We could literally eat this any night of the week & when we go to our favorite restaurant, Terra, its what we order for our appetizer every single time.
ps - When we travel we love trying new food.
Michael & I are both avid readers! Together we read several different genres from self help books, parenting books, leadership, marriage books, non fiction to fiction. Some of my personal favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks & James Patterson. We love reading snuggled up on the couch, while flying, or our favorite... at the beach sitting on the edge of the water.
DECORATING + COASTAL COTTAGE
Decorating our home has always been one of my favorite things to do! I just love decorating in a costal cottage style with blues & neutrals.
My favorite stores to shop for home decor are Home Goods, Serena & Lilly, Wayfair, & Pottery Barn.
LONG WALKS ON THE BEACH + SUNSHINE
Wether we are walking, reading at the waters edge, or searching for shells, beach days are the best days. We live for long walks on the beach with our boys combing for seas shells & seaglass. Its something I did as a kid thats so relaxing & enjoyable & brings things into perspective for me as time seems to slow down at the beach & you get back in touch with nature & connect with your family.
the heart behind
WHAT WE DO
It all began when he held my hand & never let go...
We married after graduating college in 2012 & I can honestly say I married my best friend . We weathered the hardest seasons of life together when our son & I faced a life threatening condition during my last trimester of pregnancy. Michael never left my side & when I woke up he was holding my hand! I am blessed beyond measure that I get to do life with him by my side.
I am so grateful that this experience has given me such a passion for documenting memories because time is fleeting & I want to photograph those treasured moments for you on your wedding day! It brings joy to my heart to have the honor of capturing photographic heirlooms for you & your family.
