I could not recommend Lauren more! She photographed our wedding - and did the most wonderful job! We love our photos, her style is exactly what we were looking for and she didn't disappoint. She was so lovely to have as part of our day too, fitting in perfectly. She was incredibly organised and professional too - her approach to her business is faultless. Highly, highly recommend. Wish we could do it all over again! Thanks Lauren! ♥️ More...

Laruen is a professional and enthusiastic photographer. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She has captured all the memorable moments of our ceremony & reception on our wedding day, and her editing polished up most photos in dazzling quality. Her beautiful photography genuinely enriched our sweet memories! More...

My boyfriend and I had a photo shoot with Lauren out at Balmedie Beach. She chose the location and it couldn’t have been more perfect! We had an amazing time! Lauren was very welcoming and definitely made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera! Everything felt to calm but organised which was amazing! We have received the link to the portal of our images and they couldn’t have turned out more perfect! We would both highly recommended Lauren to anybody wishing to have couple photographs or even families photos done! Thank you again for a great day! X More...

We used Lauren for our halfway ball and she was extremely efficient on the night. She was in constant contact before the night to ensure there were no hiccups and had a great turn around time with the photos which were all fantastic!

Q&As

There are so many aspects of my job that I love but meeting new and different people all the time is probably up there. I love hearing peoples stories and being able to capture and share their next chapter with them, whether that be shiny new headshots for their dream job, their proposal, their first family photographs or their BIG DAY!

I'd love to hear your story too so get in touch if you want me there to capture your next chapter.

My photography journey started whilst studying Mathematics at Durham University (yep, I know, I did quite a U-turn career-wise!). I received my first DSLR for my 21st birthday and began photographing friends at university balls and dinners. I also starting capturing my love for the outdoors, in particular, the West Coast of Scotland, on my camera. I got a lot of positive feedback from friends and won a couple of competitions at university so decided to start my own Facebook Page for my work. In my last year of University, I was asked to photograph several prestigious events, one of which was featured in The Times and Tatler magazine. It made me think about what I wanted to do upon leaving university, did I want to spend the rest of my life sitting behind a desk working in finance?

The answer was no. I did not. Upon graduating in 2016 I began to look into Photography courses and how I could grow my business. I applied and was accepted onto the HND Photography course at North East Scotland College. Whilst waiting to start my course I fell into the world of nightlife photography. I say fell as it was something I never saw myself doing but I have gone on to become one of the most sought after nightlife photographers in Scotland having photographed 10+ venues in Aberdeen, including two of Aberdeens largest student nights, as well as venues in Edinburgh and abroad. Although it's not something I see myself doing forever, it has taught me invaluable skills such as shooting in very low light and the ability to turnaround photos very quickly through optimising my post-production editing process.

I highly recommended meeting any potential wedding photographer before you book them to make sure you 'click'. While this isn't possible at the moment, I'm more than happy to schedule a Facetime/Zoom/Teams or just a regular old phone call so we can discuss your weddings plans and what you're looking for in terms of photography.

At the moment, I am only taking virtual booking and pre-wedding consultations via video call.

On your big day, I will be wearing a mask at all times whilst indoors, and keeping a 2m distance where possible. I have plenty of zoom and telephoto lenses that allow me to get closure to action without actually getting any closer!

Celebrate your engagement with a portrait session at a beautiful outdoor location! Pre-wedding/engagement sessions are a perfect way of getting to know your wedding photographer before your wedding day. I like to think of it as a dress rehearsal for your wedding photos which is why I include a complimentary session with all my Full and Half Day wedding packages. If you're a little shy in front of the camera it allows you the opportunity to shake off those nerves and find your inner model.

There are so many beautiful locations for pre-wedding and engagement sessions in the North East. You can either pick somewhere special to you as a couple or I can suggest a selection of locations for you to choose from. I'll also help guide you on what times of day and year are best for certain photographs with an emphasis on choosing times and locations which will be quiet for your session so you don't have too many onlookers.

I want to hear your story! Get in touch if you would like me to capture your next chapter.
