philosophy and investment

On your wedding day, I believe that every emotion, moment, and detail is important. From champagne toasts with your girls, teary-eyed vows with your love, and dancing with your dad – each joyous second should be captured so you can remember it forever. 

I've photographed 300+ weddings in the last 8 years, but I'm so much more than just a photographer – I'm a friend who can give you planning advice, an extra bridesmaid that fluffs your dress, and a cheerleader that celebrates your love.

As your wedding photographer, I vow to give you a stress-free and fun wedding photography experience that's wholeheartedly built around serving you and your fiancé. It would be an absolute honor to play a small part in your big day!

The Investment

For couples dreaming of heirloom imagery that captures the celebration of their love story 

Wedding photography may seem expensive, but this is not just an investment in your wedding day — it's an investment in forever. As a photographer, it's my job to capture the most fleeting moments of your biggest day. An honor I don't take lightly. 

Because each wedding and love story is so unique, I provide custom quotes to make sure I'm able to capture all the moments that matter most to you. I can't wait to provide you with imagery that will stand the test of time.

Rooted in a desire to freeze your most precious moments so that you can share them for years to come 

Timesless.     Romantic.       Authentic. 

Everyone has a story worth celebrating 

From the moment you first met, to this very day, your unique love story has been unfolding right before your eyes. 

Maybe it's the way he looks at you when you don't notice, or the way you laugh when he's around. Whatever makes you unique, that's the story just waiting to be told.

I can't wait to tell yours.


I'm not sure where to even start when it comes to Lauren and her services! Like many other brides, finding the perfect photographer to capture your big day is one of the most important things! I looked and did my research, and by the grace of God I happened to come across Taylor'd Southern Events. When we hired Lauren, she had just moved up to the D.C. area from Florida (talk about perfect timing). From the very beginning, Lauren took the time to get to know my husband and I on more of a personal level, which helped her capture such intimate, beautiful, memorable pictures! From traveling hours for our engagement shoot in the mountains, to being there at the farm and keeping me on schedule on our big day - Lauren was nothing short of absolutely amazing. Not to mention her shots are absolutely breathtaking!

I have no idea where to begin with this review because Lauren is so dear to our hearts. Lauren is a highly sought after photographer. My mom and I were super impressed by her after the first meeting. I knew she was the one. She makes you feel so comfortable behind a camera and is able to reel in a million people going so many different ways. We got sneak peeks the night of our wedding and everyone was amazed because they were nothing short of magazine worthy. I love every single one. Lauren is a photographer you don’t walk towards you run towards her and be prepared to be amazed every single time. She’s so talented and her spirit is genuine. She poured so much love into us and made us feel like we were her only clients. She’s skilled at her craft. Lauren thank you so much for being the best photographer and and even better friend. We love you.

Lauren was absolutely incredible. She is so personable and truly wants to get to know you. We chose her for our destination wedding, and when she arrived the day of our wedding we felt like we already knew her! During the entire process of planning our destination wedding, she was full of ideas and knowledge. She truly wants her clients to love their photos and the entire experience. She offers a second shooter, which was important to me. Being that our wedding was a destination wedding, we wanted to make sure every detail was captured, the locations and timelines were organized and everyone knew exactly what was going on. She went above and beyond what we expected of her. Of all of our vendors I would not hesitate to hire Lauren again if we ever have a need for a photographer. Lauren is 110% genuine and we LOVE our photos!

Lauren is absolutely AMAZING!!!! She is the most incredible person ever. She has such a kind heart and an eye for beauty in all things. I cry every time I see my photos. She capture our emotions so well. The experience she provided was more than I could have ever imagined. I am lucky to now call her a friend!

We will set up a call or zoom date to ensure were mutually a great fit. In this call we will get to know one another, I'll ask about the vision for your big day, and we can cover any lingering questions you may have. 

After our call, if were a good fit and you decide to move forward, getting your date secured is the next step! To secure your date, a signed contract and 50% retainer fee is required. 

Once you are officially a TSE Couple, lets start discussing what season you would like your engagement session and get a date added to the calendar! My weekends fill up with weddings, so most sessions are done during the week. During the session, I will help you get more comfortable in front of the camera and learn my flow of poses so on the wedding day it all comes natural for you. 

Engagement sessions are generally 60-90 minutes and include 2 outfits. The location choices are endless and I can help you decide on a perfect location. 

I am here to help you throughout the planning process! Throughout the process, I will send a few different questionnaires that help me get to know you better, all the details to your day and the things that are most important to you. As part of the experience with me, I offer my couples complimentary, custom curated wedding day timelines. About 12 weeks prior to your wedding, we will set up a call to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formals, special traditions and anything else we should know. 

Once the day arrives, you get to relax and enjoy every moment! I will coordinate with your planner and any other vendors to ensure your day run smoothly. I will get to know your friends and family and be there in the shadows capturing your most precious and intimate moments. 

Within a few days of your wedding, you'll receive sneak peeks for social media sharing. You can expect the remaining images to be delivered in an online gallery within about 6-8 weeks of your wedding. At that time we will also go over details about preserving your images through tangible heirlooms such as prints, albums and wall art.  

If you have selected a package that includes an album, or you wish to purchase an album, I will send you a digital proof book for you to approve the design of your album. Once approved and ordered, the turnaround time is usually 4-6 weeks. 

OUR dream CLIENTS LOVE classic elegance, timeless style, gorgeous natural tones, and a bright & airy look.

They value our work and they value each other.


THEY CARE ABOUT THE DETAILs and the joyful moments on their wedding day. WE LOVE BEING A PART OF the DAY THEIR LIFE TOGETHER BEGINS.

Frequently Asked Questions

what are your rates?

Every wedding is unique so i provide custom quotes based on your needs. Clients invest an average of $8,000 - $15,000.  If you have a specific budget in mind, please share it with me up front to determine if we are a good fit. I am happy to come up with a payment plan that works for you. 

Where are you based? 

I am based in Maryland. The main locations I serve are Maryland, DC, Virginia and of course my home state of Florida! Also, I happily photograph destination weddings anywhere in the US.

Most clients book 12-18 months out. Spring and fall dates fill up the fastest. I am selective in the weddings I shoot and only take a small number each year. 

How long have you been a photographer? 

I started shooting weddings in 2014 and left my corporate career to go full time with weddings in 2016!
