Fun Facts

about Loren

why wedding photography?

Someone once asked me, "why weddings?"

I knew I loved the glamorous details, the stunning bridal bouquets, and the emotion felt on the first day of marriage. But I had to dig deeper to discover why I chose to spend my weekends photographing weddings.  

Then one day, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Out of nowhere, I saw a quote. "If you want to see what someone fears losing, watch what they photograph."  

That quote stopped me in my tracks and the searching for the answer I was asked weeks prior was surfacing.  

I photograph weddings because I witnessed my parent's marriage crumble at the age of two and a half. There was no love in my home. There was no love in that marriage. A two and half year old's long term memory should not retain what I have remembered.  

I spend my weekends photographing weddings not for the lovely details and stunning floral arrangements, but because of marriage. The union of a man and woman is a beautiful event. The promise to have someone always in your corner, cheering you on through hard times and easy times. That's SPECIAL! Marriages are the start of legacies that change lives.  

My greatest hope for my photos is that during the difficult seasons of marriage, my couples can look back on their wedding photos and remember why it all started. Why that particular person is your person and will always be your person.

While my parent's marriage lasted less than three years, there is a very extraordinary marriage that I admire. I know what a happy and healthy marriage looks like. I understand compromise, forgiveness, and respect. I know these qualities thanks to my Grandparents. Grams and Pappy married in 1960 after a very short courtship of four months, and their marriage has spanned nearly six decades. These two people who I love more than words can say give me hope that any marriage can last with a lot of hard work and even more love. 

The Heart Behind

My Wedding Photography

learn more my philosophy

I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over! 

Our goal as wedding photographers is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! 

When I think back to my wedding day, I remember amazing memories.... but most of the moments I remember really well are the instances that were captured in my pictures. They are priceless to me. Our photographer made us feel so incredibly comfortable and for the first time, I experienced what it feels like to be in front of the camera as a bride. 

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience..... shouldn’t it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.

the experience

One way I ensure that our brides and grooms enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with our couples. We try our best to make sure that all of our couples are the PERFECT fit for us before officially booking. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process! 

After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION that helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! By the time the wedding day approaches, my clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! 

Now that you know a little bit about my approach to the wedding day...

Why Invest in a Legacy Album?

view the album options

Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The Venue? As a bride AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures.... that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding. I offer high end, leather bound Legacy Albums for my wedding clients. The images are printed straight onto the pages and the covers are wrapped with top grain leather. This is the perfect ending to The Wedding Experience and it’s a keepsake that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!

Frequently Asked Questions



Digital files

We average 50-75 images per hour that we’re shooting. We love delivering our client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. We believe in freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes! 


We are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes! Our main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline.

Loren's SHooting Style

We love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) We teach our couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from us! 


Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that our Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your deposit online.
