My name is Lauren and I am a natural light wedding and portrait photographer located in Winona, MN. I grew up in a suburb just north of the Twin Cities and absolutely love to travel all over Minneapolis & surrounding states! I am a graduate from Winona State University & a First Grade teacher in La Crescent, MN!


For as long as I can remember, I've always been the one in my friend group to have a camera in my hand. Let me tell you - I have documented more of my family and friends' lives then they probably wish. Taking photos is something I have always held near and dear to my heart & that passion has only grown over the years. I strive to better myself and my business each

and every day! 



I absolutely love capturing the love and light within each of my clients and capturing everlasting moments is what I live for. Photography began as a hobby and it has transformed into a passion that I would love to share with YOU!
