About LDP
Who’s behind the camera?

hello, i'm lauren!

I’m a professional wedding and portrait photographer living in the beautiful foothills of Northern California.
I love snuggling my pit bull, photographing people & consuming as much cheese and champagne as is socially acceptable.

I ride horses, have an obsession with wolves and drink a lot of coffee.

But most importantly, I absolutely adore what I do.

I love photographing people – whether it’s a couple on their wedding day or empowering women in my portrait studio – it all holds a special place in my heart. To give you amazing photographs of your life for you to cherish forever – that is what I’m most passionate about.

"Lauren is so talented and really takes the time to capture the best moments."

"Great work! We had some post wedding photos done by LD Photography early April. I hated my wedding photos and wanted some photos that captured me and the husband as we truly are. She captured us in great light and laughter and we had so much fun. I highly recommend!"

I would not be able to do what I do without the support of my amazing clients. This career is more than just capturing great photos, it’s developing relationships and friendships that truly enrich my life and touch my heart.
I believe your images shouldn’t just be on your computer but up on your walls and displayed around your home. I want you to walk down your hallways or enter a room and see your photographs displayed as works of art. A constant reminder of great memories and people close to your heart.
Sometimes it’s takes great confidence to put yourself in front of the camera. I challenge you – if you don’t think you’re photogenic, it’s time to come see me. I love seeing people open up during a photo shoot. Whether it’s a love story or a personal journey – there is something so special when someone trusts you enough to take their picture.
