Hi I'm Lauren, your New York City Photographer


About Me

Originally from Ohio, I moved to NYC in 2012. I started studying photography in 2002. I have a relaxed approach with my clients and will work with you to help you feel comfortable. My style is natural and beautiful. I strive to capture the moments unseen by the naked eye. I take very seriously the idea of the optical unconscious. I believe I can capture the true emotions of a moment with my camera. I want to be with my clients in the moment but not interrupting - just there to capture the natural mood and energy. I am here to deliver what my clients want and I am happy to adjust my style and editing to their needs.

My New York City Photography Reviews

review thumb review thumb

We traveled to NYC because for our 10 year anniversary. For certain circumstances we did't hire a photographer on our wedding, so this was the perfect moment to change that. After reading lots or reviews we decided to hire a professional photographer to capture great images. Lauren was incredible to work with, she was super patient while planning the photoshoot and once we were there she made us feel really comfortable. As we were not from the city we were concerned about arriving late, but Lauren made it clear that we could reach her if something weird happened. Luckily we arrived on time. -Jonathan

We had a Proposal in New York City We wanted to have nice photos as memories of this very important day of our lives! It was absolutely amazing. We had the best photographer we possibly could have. As it was pouring rain on that day she offered to meet us the next morning and took us to a amazing romantic spots to shoot our engagement photos. She was so lovely and we had loads of fun during the photoshoot. All photos turned out so great too, we absolutely love them. Would hire the same photographer for future photoshoots as she was literally the best.Cant think of anything that would have made this experience better, it was amazing and thank you so much again 🙂 -Jaro

We met in college and have been together for 6 years, living in NYC for the past 2. Since lockdown, we haven't been able to travel home, so I decided to propose right before we fly back to Ireland next week. I picked The Strands rare book room as my fiance is an avid reader and the photos came out beautifully. Wanted proposal pictures to share with family. The shoot went amazing. Lauren was so professional and made us feel comfortable and at ease. She uploaded the photos that same night and there were so many good ones for us to share with friends and family. -Conor

Right from the moment I knew that she was the one, I knew that the proposal had to be in New York City - atop the Empire State Building! The proposal was meant to be a surprise. We had the Happily Ever Empire package booked and ready but my intended did not know. Our photographer, Lauren, was already waiting on the 86th floor wherein there was a small area set aside for us along with champagne for us to make a toast. We got a quick guided tour of the Empire State Building (Thank you, Renita! You're a rockstar!) before we got to the top, where I popped the question and Lauren captured the moment. No better place than the top of the building NYC is known for. 🙂 Then it was Lauren's turn to shine and she absolutely understands the assignment! She took us around the city, clicked pictures in various spots, and kept advising us (on our request) on how to get the best shots. We cannot thank her enough for capturing the moment and making us look beautiful in all the pictures. -Jessin
