ABOUT US!

ABOUT LAURYN:

First of all, Hi, I am the lady behind the business and the person you will be emailing/texting/calling! It’s so nice to meet you!

I am a very relationally-focused person and my work reflects that. I pride myself in keeping long and intentional relationships with the people who I love. That includes my best friend, Bethany, who I met in seventh grade, multiple elementary and junior high friends and of course some wonderful college friendships as well. I am the friend/roommate who will knock on your door and motivate you to get yourself out of bed when you are down. The friend who encourages you to call her when you are struggling. And the friend who will listen without judging, but always try to make something joyful out of the bad. I’m also a very candid person who will share my opinions and voice for better or for worse (but I always mean it to be for the better.) 

I am a loving mother. My baby (she’s a toddler, really), Indie, is my motivator and my joy. We love snuggling and building towers together just to knock them over and to start all over again. Oh, and going to the zoo as frequently as possible. Seeing the world through her eyes makes me feel like there is real magic in the world (because there is) and it makes me curious about how things work all over again.

Because of these things and so many more, I love creating new and beautiful connections with the people that I have the pleasure of meeting and photographing. I am there as your support and to make beautiful images of your day. I am also an energetic goofball who will make a total fool out of myself in order to get the happiest, laughiest and most “you” moments possible. My goal is to get honest and genuine moments by giving you a little guidance and letting you be you. I have been doing this wedding photographer thing for five years, so at this point, I have really been able to hone in on my ability to connect with couples quickly and direct them accordingly.

 

OUR STYLE

As far as style, I like to think of my photography shooting and editing styles as somewhere in the realm of light and airy/ fine art but also with a hint of badassery & spunk (you know, like me). As the super color-obsessed human that I am, I am not afraid to use bright, beautiful tones with a hint of contrast that make things a bit more poppin’ but also feel as lovely as it did in person.  I shoot and direct with a joy-filled and documentary style. This means that I am looking for more fun vibes and less editorial vibes (though I do totally love all those romantic moments that happen naturally).

ABOUT BOB:

Bob is an architect by day and second photographer by night! He loves his job as a brewery architect (yes, he has pretty much every millennial’s dream job), and that training influences his eye as a wedding photographer. He’s actually been a photographer longer than I have, and has been shooting weddings since 2008!

He is my co-photographer/assistant/hype man during your wedding day/ couple’s sessions, not to mention an incredible and loving human to boot! I like to joke that I generally bring people in, but Bob is the one who keeps them around. This is largely because he is such a kind, warm and funny person, and I am the (slightly more) extroverted yin to his yang. 

He is great at shooting wider, more landscape and building heavy shots, as well as all the beautiful, itty-bitty details and moments that most of us just don’t see. He is a serious asset to the team as well as my life. I know, I am being super-duper gushy, but, hey, he is my person, you know?

SO, WHY DO WE LOVE LOVE SO MUCH!?

Well, Bob and I met during our first semester in undergraduate at the University of Idaho and waited until four years later, the day that he was moving out of town to admit our undying love for one another (sounds silly but it’s the truth). Now, we’ve been happily married for eight years and have a toddler named Indie (short for Indigo). We named her after a jazz song.

ABOUT INDIE:

Indie is our tiny, sweet, little spitfire. She hates bedtime (because obviously she doesn’t need sleep…duh). And, she loves all the animals in the world. Her favorite place to go is the zoo, and she could not be more psyched to watch lions (“roars,” as she calls them) on “Planet Earth.” What are some of her favorite aminals, you ask?! She loves the “ROARS” and “esephants” a whole lot, but her doggie, Jack Jack, is definitely her very favorite.

Pro Tip: Give her cookies and cupcakes and she’ll be your friend forever.
