After a whirlwind of a weekend (36 hours in San Diego to photography Dash and Brittany's wedding), I'm back in Sacramento planning, prepping, editing, and meeting for my next weddings! Is it weird that I love helping clients build timelines and figuring out their small details as much as I love photographing their wedding? No? Didn't think so. .

It's Tuesday, friend. How's your week shaping up so far? I'll be honest, mine started off rocky yesterday but ended on a very positive note. The rocky start had everything to do with me: I was too tired, said yes to too many things, and tried to be superwoman. Then a friend reminded me that even super woman takes naps. So I took a moment to myself and decided to hit the rest button on the day. Boy, did that change everything! I felt refreshed and alive, did a little work out, and ended the evening at a family dinner. This is where I get to the part about how my day ended on a big ol' positive note. I got into a deep conversation with my parents (so thankful I have parents I can do that with) about how I'm chasing my dreams. I got to talking about how I love everything about being an entrepreneur and owning a wedding photography business. I shared how I even love doing my own accounting and P&L sheets and marketing strategies and business development, oh my! I feel like a fierce #girlboss doing my thing and chasing my dreams. I stopped talking (finally) and looked up. My parents were just sitting there staring back at me with huge smiles on their faces. They didn't say anything, they just sat there smiling. It was a genuine smile, not a "good for you, honey" smile. That's when I realized that other people can see my passion too. They get it and oh my, that is HUGE because I LOVE when people can share in my excitement and joy....and just smile. They smile because they're happy I'm happy and that, my friend is a lovely thing.

Working with creative vendors is one of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer. Isn't this venue (@minersfoundry) gorgeous and how about those white linen drapes by @tinrooffarmhouse!? Swoon!! Wedding coordinator: @wildandlovelyevents // Photography: πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Kelly, such a gorgeous blushing bride, and all the lovely greens at this garden wedding. #swoon #stylemepretty #thatsdarling #soloverly

You're engaged! Congrats!! You're probably so overwhelmed right now with thoughts about wedding planning and vendor options. I mean honestly, how do you know what's the right decision and who's really good!? When it comes to picking your wedding photographer, there's one giant thing you have to look for aside from their skills, talent, style, and quality, it's...THE ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER. Your photographer will be with you during your entire wedding and will be witness to some of your most personal moments of the day. Not only that, but you'll spend hours with them over email, in person, and during your engagement session. Trust me, by the time your wedding is over, you'll think of your wedding photographer as an extension of your wedding army. So don't you think their personality needs to compliment yours? I sure do! That's why I spend so much time on social media and on my website not just showcasing my work, but showing you a glimpse of who I am. So hey, I'm Lauren and here are a few things about me: ▫️ I'm a fierce pursuer of dreams. ▫️ I run on black coffee and think yoga pants should just be called "pants", because I basically live in them. ▫️ Except on your wedding day. Then I'll be in a dress or slacks, promise! ▫️ I follow through. ▫️ I'm creative and artsy, yet also Type-A (thanks, former event planning career). ▫️ I'm single and I'm a wedding photographer. The irony of that is not lost on me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ ▫️ I love the mountains and the tallest of trees and would camp once a week if I had the time. ▫️ I was diagnosed with celiac disease when I was 25 so while you can absolutely feed my assistant photographer at your wedding, I'll bring my Ikea lunch box filled with gfree snacks for myself. ▫️ I left San Diego after living there for 10 years and relocated to Sacramento. Some called me crazy, but I love everything about this city. ▫️ I think your wedding is unique and special and should be treated as such. .

You put in hours, days, weeks, and months in to planning every last details of your wedding. With every decision you make, a piece of who you two are as a couple is reflected in your final selections. So I believe that the kisses, sweet moments, beautiful portraits AND the littlest details should be photographed. I hope that when you look back at your wedding gallery years from now, all the emotions of your special day and the excitement of the planning and preparation come flooding back. That. That is why I do what I do. // Event Design: @marieeweddings

Ek! My 2018 pricing guide is almost ready!! I'm super excited for this one because it's the first time I'm offering a complete wedding guide and pricing e-booklet. Those engaged, just about to get engaged, or heck, not even close to getting engaged (shout out to my fellow single ladies, I'm right there with ya!), stay tuned because the guide is going to launch in a few days and it's pretty awesome, if I do say so myself! .

Sundays in Sacramento are my favorite: church then shopping at the farmer's market while getting from place to place by walking down beautiful tree-lined streets. People called me crazy for leaving San Diego for Sacramento, but I find this city to be truly incredible. I'm a sucker for Sacramento's giant old trees, the multitude of delicious craft coffee shops, and the great mixture of small-town vibes and big city energy. Speaking of coffee shops, that's where I'm heading next to sip coffee and edit photos for the rest of this Sunday afternoon - I hope there's a gluten-free muffin waiting for me at the cafe too!! πŸ’»β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

🍍 Anyone loving these long summer days? 🍍 One of my favorite things about summer, besides the fact that the sun stays out FOREVER, giving me more time to play and to take photos in the evenings, is the fresh summer fruit! I know it's silly, but I honestly love it. I grew up in a small-ish farm town in the middle of California (yes, we have small farm towns in California πŸ˜‰) and am a total fruit snob because of it! Ok, so we never grew pineapples (they're my favorite), but we did grow peaches, necterines, plums, pears, cherries...I could go on. I hope you're soaking up this summer sun and eating all the ripe, fresh fruit you possibly can!! .

Funny story. When I first decided to become a wedding photographer after three changes to my major in college and a successful (and fun!) stent in event planning, I interned for a wedding photography company to get more experience. I'll never forget my first day on the job. I was told my photos were sub-par and I would never make it as a wedding photographer. After wiping the tears from my face and polishing off a pint of Ben and Jerry's that night (no judgement please!), I decided I had two options. I could either sulk and quit or I could do something about it. I opted for the second. I gathered about 30 of my friends that next weekend and traded their "modeling time" for free photos. At the end of the weekend, I had completed over 25 "modeling sessions" with friends...everything ranging from family portraits to fake proposals, to a session with a couple who had JUST started dating (they got married a few years later, so I take full credit for the progress of their relationship, obviously). I continued to work, get critiques, followed blogs, read literature, and practiced. I did a lot of the "practice" part. Here I am about 6 years later and looking back, wow have I grown. I've grown not just as a photographer, but as a person. I've learned how to take the critiques with the compliments, how to weed through what is constructive and what's just personal preference, how to work (HARD), how to follow my dreams, and how to master the perfect top knot, because ladies and gentlemen, sometimes you just need to pull up your hair and get s___ done! Side note: 9 times out of 10 I have my hair in some kind of top knot - It's inadvertently become my signature "thing". Anyways. I wish I still remembered who at that photography company told me I'd never make it, because guess what, sir...I did. #topknotsforlife .
