I'm Lauryn and I love love.

I know it sounds cheesy but it's true!  I have been obsessed with weddings since I was a little girl and as photography became a passion of mine, I knew one day my goal would be to photograph weddings and share love stories.  I love my clients and learning all about their love stories.  I get so excited when I meet new couples and get to see how unique each relationship is and how perfect they are for each other.   I love getting to know my couples, becoming friends, and then sharing one of the happiest days of their lives with them.  On your wedding day, I want to laugh with you, cry with you, dance with you, and most importantly, I want to capture it all along the way!

My Love Story

The people in those pictures to the left make up the biggest pieces of my love story!  My husband, Mike, and I met in college.  We both worked at the same restaurant and as the story goes, I was at the host stand one day when he saw me, turned to his best friend and said, "See that girl over there? She's going to be my girlfriend." The rest is history.  Five years later we were married on the beautiful Island of St. Thomas with a bunch of our friends and family there to witness.  It was perfect! We recently decided to move back up to Connecticut after living in NC for 3.5 years.  We are excited to be close to family and friends and for this new chapter in our lives!  Mike and I are best friends and I couldn't ask for a more loving, caring, supportive man in my life. He is my rock. We have been through our highest of highs and our lowest of lows together.  It isn't always perfect, no love story ever is, but we are perfect for each other. 

Our sweet baby boy, Brayden, joined us in December of 2011.  Becoming a mother opened up my heart to whole new love that I never knew existed.  Brayden is a spunky little 5 year old and he is all boy!  He loves to run, jump, climb, and play with cars, trucks, trains, planes, dinos, and now everything Star Wars.  He brings so much joy into our lives on a daily basis.  In September of 2015 we welcomed our baby girl, Peyton, into the world and have fallen head over heels for her!  She is our trouble maker and has such a big personality! She is the sweetest little girl and loves to snuggle on the couch watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  I can't wait to watch as her and her big brother grow up together.

A little more about me...

The beach is my happy place and some day I will live near the ocean.
I'll get a bit over excited about all your little wedding details!
I'm addicted to Dunkin Donuts coffee, ice cream, Oreos and anything s'mores.
I believe the perfect red lipstick will always make a girl feel FABULOUS!
I was and always will be obsessed with the show Friends... and that's an understatement.
Pretty planners and notebooks, a delicious meal at our favorite restaurant, snuggling on the couch after a long day, and all things mint-green make me happy!
