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.
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 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.
Lauren was so amazing to work with! Having a photographer that would capture every detail of our day was very important to us. From the first conversation with Lauren over the phone, I could tell that she would be such a calming and sweet presence on my wedding day. I was so right! When storms ruined our Plan A for pictures, Lauren came through and found us a perfect location to take portraits. Our pictures perfectly encapsulate our day, and every time I look at them I feel like I am right back in the moment. Lauren's great personality, professionalism, and talent make her a wonderful option for your wedding photographer!
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!
