Wedding Photography


intimate + non-traditional



My philosophy doesn’t follow a script. I believe every wedding deserves a personalized approach. I find joy in documenting memories of intimate, non-traditional weddings naturally. the LKP bride cherishes closeness with guests and fully entrusts our team to capture those moments artistically. We share coffee, wine and stories - by the end of our time together we feel like family.  

documenting your forever story

Between coffee and wine dates we’ll plan out the best ways to capture your intimate and most special moments as a couple.  I encourage starting with an engagement session - either in home or on location.  These sessions are an opportunity to be comfortable and show your true selves at the beginning of your story.  Your custom experience as an LKP bride will include the creation of lifelong heirlooms from your engagement session and wedding day. Through close communication in preparation of your day I will ensure every important detail is captured in a way that is most organically you.  Every couple deserves their moments to be captured in a way that is true to them - to create the storyboard of your life.

We have been fortunate to have Lauren document our memories over the past couple of years. Her photos are always real and natural. We not only have the memory of the time it was taken, but also the feeling that we had while taking them. We couldn’t have been more excited to have LKP do the same for our wedding day. We had the perfect winter wonderland that we hoped for. It was cold and snowy, but this certainly didn’t stop LKP from climbing snow piles to capture the best photos. We are so lucky to work with LKP as our photographer, but we’re also lucky to have Lauren as our friend. We’re forever thankful for the memories she has captured for us!

Lauren and her team are nothing short of amazing. Her professionalism, ability to take photos while never being noticed and the ability to keep me organized and calm throughout my entire wedding process far exceeded my expectations. Our wedding photos are ones we can relive that day with for many years to come through our beautiful album and prints within our home. Lauren is a top-notch photographer who will continue to photograph our family as it grows.

Our wedding day was beyond perfect, a day that we wanted to be able to remember, even the smallest moments, forever. While planning our wedding, like any couple, we simply wanted it to be special. For us, this meant having an small and intimate celebration with our family and closest friends, in a place that we both love, Burlington, VT, (with a few personal touches and the hope for a winter wonderland too, of course!). More than anything we wanted our day to be organic and true to who we are as a couple and as a family. We knew that we wanted to have the memory of our day captured forever. For that, we had to have LKP as our photographer.

For a couple who is incredibly shy in front of the camera, Lauren made our session comfortable and effortless. She directed us in a way that allowed us to our own thing and feel natural in the comfort of our own home. We are so thrilled we had the opportunity to work with her, and look forward to more sessions in the future!

-Kendall and Cody, at home couples session

My name is Lauren and I love in between moments. I love freezing time as a bride reads a love note from her soon to be husband and capturing the intricate details of the wedding day from seating chart to subtle, intimate moments between bride and groom. I am a wife and a mama who lives to capture natural moments of love, joy, crazy and quiet. I love love and I love family. This rings true in everything I do.

I live in upstate NY with my husband and two kiddos, Leo and Nora. Those two are the best thing my husband and I have ever done, and I seriously photograph them all. the. time. In addition to being a photographer, I am a pediatric nurse. I am inspired by these little people, reminded of their strength and how amazing children and families are every single day. Working with them gives me perspective on life, makes me appreciate the littlest moments as remarkable ones and motivates me to provide lasting memories in heirlooms for all of my clients.
