Kylie & Aaron - Sterling, NY

Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with! She paid attention to so many of the small details that made our day special. She brought comfort and light while she was behind the lens, and we can’t wait to book her for further sessions.

"Lauren captured exactly what we were looking for in our photographs..."

Brianne & Timothy - Sackets Harbor, NY

You are absolutely incredible in every way! You listened to what I wanted for my wedding day and the pictures came out even more gorgeous than I ever could have imagined. Not only are you talented but you are such a kind and energetic person to be around. I am so appreciative of you.

"She listened to what I wanted for my wedding day and the pictures came out even more gorgeous!"

Kristin & Paul - Sterling, NY 

She has a positive, bubbly personality along with a strong work ethic and was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive to my questions in the months leading up to the wedding. The photos she took turned out just beautiful! You can definitely tell the time, energy, effort, and thoughtfulness that were put into capturing all parts of my wedding day.

"Lauren went above and beyond in every way possible!

Kristine & Dave - Cape Vincent, NY

Lauren was from the very beginning so easy to communicate with. If she is busy with couples or travels she will tell you with a short message but always get back to me, such a nice comparison to some of the other vendors. Many weddings I've been in, family or groomsman would be groaning about all of the photos they would have to take but she was so fun and professional the time flew by! 

"My husband's one liner assessment of Lauren is that she is a "ray of sunshine" which is such a pleasant addition to such an important day. "

Gabby & Alex - Sterling, NY

Lauren is absolutely amazing! She is extremely helpful, personable, and professional. Lauren takes the time to get to know you as a couple to ensure your personalities shine through the photos. She will also take any idea you have and make that magic come alive! We’ve been lucky enough to stay connected with Lauren and know she will be a forever friend of ours! She is so supportive, kind, and unbelievably talented. We are absolutely in love with our photos and hope to work with her again in the future.

"Her outgoing, positive energy makes you feel super comfortable and relaxed."

Whether I'm strolling down charming cobblestone streets in Europe or trekking through breathtaking mountain trails, each journey gifts me with unforgettable memories and a deep connection to our world. Take a peek at the map below to discover the array of places I've had the pleasure of calling home or exploring.

Frequently Asked Questions

things you need to know...

To secure your date upon booking, a non-refundable 25% deposit is required. The remaining amount will be settled in monthly installments leading up to your wedding day. For regular sessions, a 25% deposit is needed to reserve your date, with the remaining payments scheduled bi-weekly until your session.

I include all my travel fees in my packages, so you won't need to stress about managing these costs separately. It's all bundled together, just depending on where I'm headed! I budget for the basics - flight, transportation, stay - and I'll cover the rest.

Excited to help! I will provide PDFs with outfit ideas, and assist in crafting your photoshoot itinerary, elopement plans, or wedding day schedule. Let's brainstorm ways to add significance to your special day and share tips for capturing stunning photos! Having successfully planned my own wedding solo in just 2 months, I might be a bit unconventional!

I am based in Northern MI but am ready for adventures with you and your loved one! Exploring destinations near and far brings me immense joy, fueled by my vast travel escapades spanning 20+ countries across the globe, encompassing both domestic and international journeys.

If I am unable to attend your wedding, rest assured that I will arrange for a trusted replacement photographer. They will capture the day, while I will personally edit the images to ensure you receive the same distinctive look and style in your photographs.

I do not provide RAW images as my editing style is part of what you appreciate. If you share our photos on Instagram, please tag me @laurencase.photo. I love seeing your favorites!

If you've already booked your session or event and need to make changes, please be aware that the retainer fee is non-refundable. While I may be able to reschedule in some situations, it's not guaranteed. Be assured that my equipment is weather-resistant, and I always have a rain jacket on hand to help you navigate any unforeseen weather challenges. Remember, unexpected weather can sometimes lead to the most stunning photos!

Expect sneak peeks within 24-72 hours of your event or shoot! The complete album usually takes 2-6 weeks. A wedding album typically includes 500+ photos. For a standard shoot, anticipate a 1-3 week turnaround with 50-200 images based on shoot duration, outfit changes, and locations traveled.
