Hi dear friend! Let me just begin by saying that I am so thrilled that you are here! I’m Jessica Lauren – a wedding photographer living in St. Louis with a huge heart for travel and an enormous passion for Jesus. I absolutely adore capturing laughter and working with couples filled to the brim with joy and love for life and each other.
First and foremost, Jesus is my "why." He fills me with purpose and ignites my dreams. I wouldn’t be where I am without God's beautiful work in my life.
I get a bit sentimental at the end of each wedding season as I look back on each and every couple I have the honor of working with. Being a wedding photographer is so much more than a job to me - my heart is wholly and completely invested in what I do. I feel beyond blessed to walk alongside such incredible people on one of the biggest days of their lives, and I don't take that job lightly. (Although we will most definitely have lots of fun!)
A few things about me... I’ll never turn down some good food (gourmet tacos, anyone?). ;) While St. Louis is home, my heart belongs in the Pacific Northwest, and I find myself visiting often. I'm always up for a new adventure, so if you're getting married in Iceland - I'll be there in a heartbeat! White chocolate americanos are my jam, and I'm most likely editing away and sipping one as we speak. ;)
Speaking of coffee, I hope you'll grab a mug and stay a while! Take some time to peruse the site and then head on over to the blog where I share bits and pieces of my life + heart. Whether you're newly engaged or just want to say hi, it would make my day to hear from you!
