About Me

Hey there! I'm Lauren.

I’ve been a freelance photographer since 2006. My work has taken me all over the United States as well as international destinations such as India and Australia. My photos have appeared in Teen Vogue, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Eater, Edible Austin, Tribeza, 100 Layer Cake and Weddings in Houston.

I graduated from Baylor University in 2006 with a degree in Journalism, then moved to New York City where I started my photography business, and worked for 8 years. I moved back to Texas in 2014, co-operating a wedding photography studio called Bonnie & Lauren from 2013-2020, in which I continued to serve my client base in NYC while building a new one in Austin.

Since 2020, I’ve been focusing my work locally in Central Austin, but I’m still available for a few select weddings out-of-state each year.

I live in Hyde Park with my husband, Chadwick, our precious toddler, Gibson, and our old-man fur bud, Skipsy (a 16-year-old junkyard cat from Brooklyn). I love reading, journaling, cooking new recipes, dancing and swimming. Patsy Cline is my go-to karaoke.
