The Wedding Experience

Congratulations on your engagement! I am so glad that you are here! I have spent the last 12 years photographing the sweetest weddings in New Orleans and around the world. My approach is to shoot in a photojournalistic style throughout the day with a mix of portraits and those lovely little details. I will guide you to the pretty light and capture those heartfelt laughs and unscripted moments.

When your wedding day is over, you will have these photographs to hold close. Photos of the excitement in your eyes as your start this adventure together - your parents' and grandparents' tears during the ceremony - your closest friends cutting loose at the reception.


How do I book my wedding with you?

For detailed pricing and availability, please fill out my contact form. A $1,000 retainer and contract is required to secure the date. The quickest way to contact me is through email. I would also love to set up a meeting or phone call to talk over your wedding details and get to know each other!

How long have you photographed weddings?

I grew up drawing, painting, and viewing the world in a creative way. I began shooting film in college and spent most of my time in the darkroom. From there, I landed a job with a local photographer as a second shooter and editor. Once I received my graphic design degree in 2012, I already had a successful photography business and have nurtured it and grown ever since. The rest is history!

How many photographs will I receive from my wedding?

You will receive approximately 100 edited photos per hour organized in your online gallery to tell the story of your wedding day. You'll receive a sneak peek within two weeks of your wedding, and your full gallery will be delivered within 6-8 weeks in your online gallery.

How many weddings do you shoot a year?

To ensure each of my couples get the service and attention they deserve, I only book up to 20 weddings per year. After many years of shooting, I have found that this is my sweet spot. I typically book weddings a year in advance.

Do you also offer wedding video?

YES! I now offer vintage Super 8 films. You can read more about these below!

Our 10x10” 40 page signature album is assembled by hand with curated, high-quality materials to be cherished as an heirloom. Our albums offer luxurious cover materials and several customization options to accent your wedding day style.

Super 8mm is a vintage film video format popularized in the 1960s and 70s. It was first used to capture home videos of your grandparents. The cameras make a gentle whirring sound as they roll, with beautiful light leaks, soft grain, and a certain magic that can’t be felt or replicated with digital video, making every wedding film truly unique.

I only use vintage cameras from the 60s and 70s with a variety of film stocks. The nostalgic style, rich colors, and grain are like no other and add so much character to your wedding day story.

Lauren is a phenomenal photographer, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our wedding! Not only is she incredibly talented and an expert in her field, she is also so warmhearted and funny, and overall such a pleasure to be around! Lauren made us laugh authentically and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and she took the time to really get to know us. It truly felt like she had been an important friend of ours for a while, and it felt incredible to be able to trust her completely. Our photos came out so beautiful because of her, and we are so grateful! I believe that a wedding photographer is one of the most important vendors to book for a wedding, and I have zero regrets about hiring Lauren. I wouldn't have had it any other way :)


Lauren captured our wedding photography last April and did an absolutely beautiful job. As a wedding photographer myself up in Boston, this was a big decision. I had been looking at Instagram and websites for New Orleans wedding photographers for a while before we picked our venue. After a video call with her, I definitely felt like she could capture our wedding day vibe well. She was able to capture all of the moments big and small throughout the day, and did both film and digital which was a really nice addition. For beautiful photography that captures the moments well, she is the one to pick.


We are so happy we chose Lauren Carroll as our wedding photographer! She is so talented and did a truly amazing job capturing our wedding! We also had her for an engagement session and to photograph our rehearsal dinner. She made us feel so comfortable throughout all of our sessions and all of our pictures are natural and feel like us. We chose her because we loved the style and aesthetic of her work. Nothing is overly posed or awkward, and we have so many amazing candid shots from our wedding and reception of us and our guests. She has a great turnaround time and we have so many amazing photos to remember our wedding by!


Lauren is absolutely amazing! From our first conversation on, I knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding- and she surpassed those expectations! She is professional and personable, creative, has great style, friendly and sweet but also efficient. You hardly knew she was there (which is what you want in a photographer!) as she blended in seamlessly with the guests while getting the perfect shots. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and let us be natural with each other instead of posing us awkwardly, which resulted in some amazing photos! So many of our guests came up to us throughout the night and told us how much they enjoyed having her there and couldn't wait for the photos! She also sent us a preview of them on our honeymoon which was such a nice touch. You will not regret hiring her, as she becomes your friend- not just your photographer! We couldn't have asked for anyone better to be such an important part of our wedding day and we are so thankful we hired her! Thank you so much Lauren!!


Lauren did an absolutely fantastic job being our photographer! My husband and I eloped in October of 2020 and in the fall of 2022 decided to finally start planning a party/vow renewal. Lauren was very fair and up front about pricing and worked with our time frame for the day. We told her exactly what we wanted for the day - lots of family portraits, mostly candids, and a few solo shots for myself and my husband. We had a phone call with her a few days before the party and we reiterated everything we wanted, plus she said because she was pregnant she’d bring a second shooter at no extra charge. It was wonderful having two photographers to capture everything. The pictures turned out so wonderfully and her turn-around from the party was insanely fast. Less than two weeks, I believe. The editing was beautiful and none of the dancing pictures were blurry, even in a dim room with everyone dancing! I cannot recommend her enough!
