Being surrounded by sentimental love and witnessing couples open up to manifest all those adorable little moments with me is beyond breathtaking. Those looks you sneak of your partner when they aren't looking, the tears, the laughs, the booty grabs, and the inside jokes… that’s the good stuff. I do what I do simply because I care about how you feel when you look back at your wedding day.
WOW! What a phenomenal experience with Lo. She was a class act from the beginning. Her process was seamless from booking, shooting, editing, and receiving the finished photos. I felt like I was a Free People model in the finished product which just made me feel so beautiful and empowered. She really captured my partner and I sparkle for each other which is really special. I can't wait to shoot with her again.
We hired Lauren to be our photographer for our elopement in San Diego and OH BOY am I glad we booked with her! To start she is so kind, helpful, and overall an amazing person. I found her on Instagram and after looking at her page for 5 minutes I knew she was the one for us. My husband and I are very awkward/not good at taking pictures and she made the entire process fun and stress free. When we got the pictures we were speechless with how amazing we/the view looked. She is so gifted and talented and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to have beautiful pictures of their wedding/elopement. I can’t wait to use her again in the future for any photography needs! Thank you for making our day so special and capturing the best day of my life!
These photos are absolutely breathtaking! Never had we ever imagined in my life how beautiful my wedding pictures would turn out. Literally a dream come true. When we were looking at them this weekend, it was like falling in love with each other again. Lo captured everything we missed and everything we remember. Lo went above and beyond, and even on several occasions when she really didn't have to. Couldn't imagine our spacial day with her! It was more than just having pictures to us, it was having such a great support team behind us.
My fiance and I did an engagement shoot with Lo and we couldn't be happier. She was fun to work with and took amazing pictures. She provides a styling guide with in depth instruction and recommendations for preparing which was so helpful. She is really good at what she does and I would highly recommend her!
After our engagement photos, my (now) husband and I asked Lo to photograph our destination wedding in Thailand. She was the only vendor that we took with us abroad because we valued her photography skills that much. Lo was a dream to work with leading up to and then throughout our wedding weekend. She truly went above and beyond as our photographer. I'm constantly asked who took our engagement and wedding photos.
If you're considering using Lo and South of Indigo for ANY photography, go ahead and take the plunge!
For weddings, 6-8 weeks. For couples + portraits, normally 2-3 weeks.
A dose of editorial and documentary with a mix of fun and film inspired imagery. Each story is unique in their own way and my top priority is to tell your story as truly as possible.
Somehow I have been in this industry for 6+ years full time.
Yes — whether that's finding a location, AirBnB suggestions, vendors, and all that good stuff.
Wherever you want your truth captured, I am there! I have traveled to Thailand and Guatemala, to Tulum and all over the United States capturing love stories.
This totally depends with details and many other factors, but I would say I get roughly 50 deliverable images per hour. For wedding, most galleries will have anywhere from 400-750 images.
Hell yeah. I shoot a mix of instants and 35mm here and there just for fun and nostalgic feels. I can edit digital images to look like film so those are always mixed into final galleries.
I never say no to meet ups AND that will make you even more comfortable with me during or session.
Only for my bucket list travel locations. You can find those on the About page.
Soon after you are booked, I send over a questionnaire that is full of questions related to your elopement and you both as a couple. These answers will give me what I need to recommend locations, lodging, things to do, vendors, and other information to help guide you to have the best damn elopement ever.
We talked through everything and all your questions are answered. The next step is locking me down as your photographer for a specific elopement date. I require a signed agreement and a $1500 sitting fee paid to reserve your date and general idea of a location. All of this is easily done online.
Once you submit an inquiry, I will be getting back to you within 48 hours (but usually as soon as I see the email), we talk about your photography dreams and locations, and of course I answer any and all questions you may have. We can talk through email, text, or a phone call - whatever is easiest for YOU..
