My name is Lauren Carroll, and I am a destination wedding and lifestyle photographer. I primarily shoot in New Orleans and the beaches of South Walton. Traveling the world is my passion, and I will follow love around the globe.

I am a lover of beautiful light and slow living. Seeing the world through the eyes of my daughter Emma, my charming Southern home, and gathering around a big, beautiful home cooked meal with family and friends inspire me and fuel my creativity. The best days of my life are spent with a cup of coffee in hand reading a book on my porch swing. I live for those long summer afternoons watering the garden in the golden light. A special thanks to my dear friends, Kali Norton and Berkley Martin, for contributing some of these cozy photographs of us.

Why, hello there!

I love to laugh and admire the beauty around me. I believe less is more, and simple is beautiful. I raise my daughter in our 100 year old farmhouse surrounded by the sounds of nature and the loveliest sunsets. Slow mornings by the fireplace are kind of our thing.



My heart pitter patters for long conversations filled with laughter and friends, the first crisp day of autumn, nature journaling, and homeschooling under our magnolia tree. I’m grateful for grace and kindred spirits. I am always inspired and creating.



Photography has taken me all over the world. I would love to document your wedding day or lifestyle session in the rolling hills of Tuscany, a funky Airbnb in Joshua Tree, or exploring the cobblestone streets of an ancient city. Let's go on an adventure.



our heart and Home
