welcome

I'm a St. Louis wedding photographer for couples who believe in making memories, loving fiercely, and embracing every imperfect moment. 

I'm Jessica Lauren

I couldn't be more thrilled that you are here! I want you to feel so very loved and taken care of from the moment we begin chatting… because you are. The "why" behind my business and the reason I want to serve you is Jesus. He fills me with purpose and ignites my dreams. Over the past eight years I've photographed 100+ weddings, and I'm still reeling from the gift it is to share in these days. I hope you'll grab a cup of coffee and make yourself at home - I can't wait to hear from you!

about jess

from the couples

Jessica deserves WAY more than five stars! She is the absolute greatest! From the moment we met for coffee to discuss our wedding vision, I knew she was perfect for our special day. She is the biggest hype girl and makes you feel like a supermodel. Annddddd on top of her being incredible human, she is a true artist. Her work is so STUNNING that people I don't even know are asking me who did my wedding photos. And without any hesitation, I recommend Jessica. I truly couldn't imagine my wedding day without her.

Do yourself a huge favor and book Jessica for your wedding, like now!! I found Jessica on Instagram about two years before my husband and I got engaged and I already knew I wanted her as my wedding photographer. She was the first person we booked for our wedding day and I can easily say it was the easiest decision of the whole wedding planning process! We just got our photos back and there were definitely automatic tears from everyone who has seen them, and she truly helped capture the day so beautifully so we can relive the best day of our lives whenever we want!

FROM THE COUPLES

BOOK JESSICA!!!!!!!!!!!!! My twin sister was in a wedding that Jessica shot and my sister called me and said "you NEED to book Jessica Lauren, you will love her." Through some intense instagram stalking, I knew I needed Jessica to capture my big day. Not only are her photographs absolutely stunning, but she makes you feel so comfortable. Every. single. person at my wedding complimented Jessica's photos and how professional and organized she was. She wasn't just a vendor at my wedding - I can honestly say she made my day so much more special.

FROM THE COUPLES

We planned the wedding in about 1 month due to covid and Jessica was on it the whole time. She is seriously the BEST and exceeded all exceptions that we had. She is extremely professional, makes you feel relaxed and as if you had known her for years. She 100% knows what she is doing and has the ability to capture all the moments needed to keep reliving the day. I get emotional knowing that we have those memories documented forever! Thank you so much Jessica for being there to capture our day <3

FROM THE COUPLES

Jessica is amazing! Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is an overall amazing person to work with. My husband does not like to be in the spotlight so he was nervous to have the photographer in his face the whole day of our wedding. BUT it was the complete opposite. Jessica worked with both of us and made everything so easy. And words cannot explain the quality of the pictures.
