hello, gorgeous.

Chasing light and life's sweet moments brings joy to my soul. Your story is beautiful and I would be honored to be a part of it. Think bright & airy meets classic & romantic. 

xoxo, Lauren

Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself… I’m Lauren! Mommy to Ezra, Ella and Emerson (four, two & two), and a lover of Jesus. My passion for photography goes back as far as I can remember.  Elsie De Wolfe said it best, “I am going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life.” Except I don't want to stop there. I want to make beautiful things for you too. This is the very reason I specialize in natural light, fine art Wedding and Portrait Photography. I'm so glad you are here and I hope you let me know a little bit about you in the contact section!

It can make or break my mood. The way to my heart is 99.9% through my stomach.


Growing up in Hawaii, it is and always will be one of my favorite past times.. no matter where we are.

They bring a smile to my face any and every time.

Where do I even start.. 

"Lauren Marks is hands down THE BEST photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has a way of making you feel so comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. She makes you feel like you feel like you are a goddess. You will not find a better person to make memories with!!"
                                                        - Jordan

"She was so great to work with and made me feel so comfortable! She was completely open to locations I suggested and the pictures turned out wonderfully! Thank you Lauren!"
                                                           - Nicki

I'm so glad she took my photos.

Lauren is great!

"She is full of energy and happiness! She is also great at making you feel comfortable and boosting self-esteem. Highly recommend her for any occassion."

Portrait sessions can be engagement, couples, senior photos, newborn, family, maternity or lifestyle shoots. They last up to 1.5 hrs. I prefer scheduling 2 hours before sunset if we are shooting outdoors. If doing an indoor lifestyle session, the more windows and natural light the better. Included in all packages are high resolution digital files with rights to downloading and printing. 

My approach to wedding photography is simple: to capture beautiful, authentic moments that evoke the best memories. Your details - big and small - are everything. I want you to be able to look back through images that stand the test of time and relive that day again and again. Complimentary engagement sessions and online personal digital galleries with  reproduction rights are included in all of my wedding collections. Please contact me for more details on packages and rates.
