Hey guys – Lauren here. There’s so much more beyond Ottawa wedding photography that makes me, me. I can never sit still. Not because I’m easily distracted, but because this world is far too big to even think we’ve seen it all. I love to live life fast, and take the quiet moments slow.
When I’m not in Ottawa capturing the best day of people’s lives, I travel constantly and live abroad in the winters (these years, it’s Colombia, South America). While this isn’t exactly a conventional way to live, it’s a lifestyle I’ve worked really hard to create for myself. I value experiences over “stuff”. But perhaps most importantly – I love my people fiercely.
Which brings me to – my loves. A Dutchman and a Taiwanese cat fill my heart to the brim. We’ve now lived on 3 different continents together (yes, even the cat!) and can’t imagine stopping anytime soon. Our weekend tradition is to eat maple syrup with a side of pancake. We like to pretend to salsa dance whenever the feeling strikes us. And we’re mildly obsessed with trying to grow a jungle inside our home.
We see life for what it is —wild, a little messy, and unpredictably exciting. Those are the honest moments we live for.
I’m not here to toot my own horn (trust). But it feels damn good when hard work is
recognized! I am proud to say that my work has been featured in the following places:
