I believe in the importance of classic portraiture combined with the precious, candid moments of a glance at the bride and groom - a first look, an innocent expression, a joyful smile. My objective is to bring warmth to the heart and joy the soul every time you glance at your images.
I am a photographer of 14 years, a wife of 13 years, and a mother of a 4 year old girl, and 2 year old boy. I love keeping busy! Photography is my passion and part of who I am as an artist. I photographed my first wedding as an assistant while in college. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts with a degree in photography, I continued to photograph and exhibit in New York City. Through my experiences working with art galleries, art fairs, art columnists, artist's studios and portrait photographers, my vision came into focus. As my work developed both technically and stylistically, my passion for photographing people drove me to focus on portraits and wedding photography.
In 2010 I opened my own studio. Since then, I've photographed everything from newborn babies to generational family portraits. There is always something to celebrate and I want to be there to celebrate with you! It is my privilege to be welcomed into the lives of my brides, mothers, children and families as they experience life.

Lauren is personable, professional, honest, timely, attentive and accommodating. She has such a distinct and gorgeous photography style; a true artist and master of her work. She was easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding. On the day of Lauren was punctual and worked her tail off. Lauren and her assistant Kelly were dedicated to getting the most fabulous shots; there was a perfect mix of gorgeous romantic pictures, party pics, and fun artistic pics that I still to this day wonder how she took. Our photos are so special and we have one of kind shots to remember our perfect day for a lifetime - all thanks to Lauren! I highly recommend her services to everyone, she is spectacular and you will have no regrets!

Loved working with Lauren & her team! I fell in love with her pictures when I saw them online, and it didn't take long before I fell in love with her and her team. It was so easy to coordinate with her & her pictures came out incredible. I have gotten so many compliments. It will be hard to narrow them down!

Lauren and her team - Barb & Kelly - did an amazing job photographing our wedding! Not only did their style match perfectly with our venue and the look we were going for for our wedding pictures, but the three of them were amazing to work with! Lauren was so friendly yet professional from the first email exchange we had, through our first meeting, planning, and of course the day of our wedding. She, Barb, and Kelly spent some time in the pretty small bridal suite taking some "getting ready" pictures, but were never an imposition. This lasted throughout the day. They were all great at capturing the spontaneous moments without getting in them. Even the posed photos were fun without being cheesy or cliché; there were also plenty of them but did not take what seemed like hours to take them.

Everyone was so easy to work with and were just fun to be around! This was especially evident when Barb was the only one to get a smile & laugh out of our slightly cranky niece/flower girl!

Not enough good things to say about Lauren Kearns Photography! Definitely worth every penny (which myself, husband, and parents thought were not many for the amazing work they did!)

Lauren was one of the first wedding vendors we hired as we started our planning process, shortly after we got engaged. She was the first to help shape our vision of our day, calming our nerves and helping to turn what seemed so overwhelming into something orderly and easy.

For our engagement shoot, Lauren made us feel incredibly comfortable, which translated into gorgeous and natural pictures. Beyond the obvious quality of her photography, Lauren won us over with her subtle type of unassuming, yet incredibly effective management of time and people. On the big day, Lauren and her team (Barb & Kelly) gently ushered the bridal party and family members through the day, never interrupting the flow of the event or causing any added stress.

We just recently received our photo box, and are currently working with Lauren to develop our album. We couldn’t be happier with the pictures, which beautifully capture every aspect of the event and setting. Each image seems to realistically show each special moment of our greatest day.

We highly recommend Lauren Kearns for wedding (or any) photography needs!

Lauren and Barb were wonderful to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. Any time I had questions, Lauren was always quick to get back to me. The whole process from beginning planning to the day of was flawless. I love the way my pictures turned out, and I can't wait to get the albums! I would definitely recommend using Lauren for any occasion! I wished we lived closer so we could use her for future occasions. Thank you Lauren and Barb for your wonderful work!

I could not have asked for a better photography team than Lauren's! From the beginning, Lauren was so easy to work with - very accessible, responsive, super flexible, and overall just a nice person! And, as I was doing all of the planning myself, she even took the time to help me sort through a proper itinerary for the day so I could get a handle on how to book the rest of my vendors. She really went above and beyond.

On the day of, Lauren's team was nothing short of PHENOMENAL. They wrangled everyone, from errant limo drivers and wandering family members to tired (cranky) flower girls, and kept us laughing the whole day! I haven't been able to stop gushing about how beautifully our photos turned out since we first saw the gallery. The team was able to capture all of the moments that I was really excited about, and even more that I never saw happening around me on the day of. AND, Lauren was even able to rush a handful of photos for us to pick from as our thank you card, and connected the photos right to the site we ordered our cards from.

There's no question that I'll come back to Lauren when we (someday) need family shots taken!!

When I first met with Lauren to just discuss my wedding, I was very pleased with her professionalism. She was dressed like it was a business appointment and came well prepared. She was flexible regarding what we wanted with wedding and she was reliable and on time. She suggested a second person to take pictures which I am grateful for. To be honest, she did such a great job that I really wasn't even thinking about her during the wedding. She knew what to do and took care of everything. I highly recommend her.
