Ever since a young age, I knew that I wanted to express myself creatively and searched for a long time for an outlet that not only satisfied my creative desires but also provided a livelihood, until I found Wedding Photography.

The first part of my creative journey was through theatre while growing up in Florida. Then at the ripe age of 18, curiosity led me to Los Angeles where I learned all about the world of Film + Photography, and quickly realized Photography was a match for me. Some years later, I discovered the Wedding Photography industry and it was then, that I fell in love with this space where combining the arts with storytelling and nostalgia is made possible. 
  
Ten years later, Wedding Photography has provided more than I could've ever imagined. Not only has it fed my hunger for travel and transported me all over— from Los Angeles and San Francisco, all the way to the Hawaiian Islands and beyond, but it has also given me the incredible opportunity to connect and collaborate with people from all over the world who I would've never met otherwise and now the ability to help other Creatives do the exact same.

Hi there! My name is Lauren (Lo for short) and here is a bit about me—

One of the greatest lessons I learned was when I packed my life up, bought a one-way ticket to Hawaii determined to become a Professional Wedding Photographer and found myself back home in CA two weeks later with just a dream.

Thankfully I didn't give up though, because that same year after much perseverance, I booked over 75 weddings and made over six-figures. It really is true what they say— many times people give up when they are just one step away from finding their own definition of success. 

400 weddings, two photography businesses and over 2 million in revenue later, and I now have the honor of helping other Creatives find success in the Wedding Photography industry through my complete framework, and also show them how to get it right the first go round! 




It didn't come easy getting to where I am today. In fact, I spent many years trying to figure things out by tirelessly researching, mentorship, and simply working by trial-and-error (and that means making many mistakes).
