Maine Wedding Photography

Memories captured for a lifetime

I think your wedding day is the most important day of your life.
My goal is to create naturally authentic photos that capture the moments in time you’ll never want to forget.

Maine Wedding Photography - LAD Photography


Investing in your wedding photography sounds like an odd turn of phrase, doesn’t it? If you look at your wedding photography as just another budget item, you may be sorely disappointed in the outcome.

The level of experience and service I will provide before, during, and after your special day is second to none. You will find I offer many things other photographers don’t and that’s so you can be confident in your decision to team up with me.

Professional photos from your wedding will last generations. I promise to provide an unforgettable experience and a “wow factor” to your photos you’ll want to share with the world!

From elopements to the most luxurious of wedding celebrations, I’ve got you covered!


I invite you to browse some of my favorite photos. Some are Maine weddings, others from New England and beyond.
I sincerely hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

If you’re reading this review… You have found the absolute BEST photographer there is…She is an amazingly talented photographer and genuinely kind, wonderful person…Lauren was almost like having your own personal wedding planner, providing advice and helping us make decisions along the way, to ensure our day was exactly how we envisioned it…Throughout all of the planning, we felt so comfortable, re-assured, and stress-free knowing she would be by our side on the big day! Her photos are honestly the best photos and work I’ve ever seen from a photographer… Numerous friends have already told me they want to use her as their wedding photographer and asked for her information (and they aren’t even engaged YET)… We felt privileged to have met her and have her be a part of our wedding.

Lauren exceeded our expectations as both a photographer and a human being…Lauren was with us every step of the way helping us… After reviewing Lauren’s website, I knew she was the one for the job. I have never been more right in my life.

HIRE HER ASAP!…Lauren was such an integral part of the proposal process and success…I can’t say enough good things about how helpful she was. I haven’t even mentioned the actual photographs yet. These came out absolutely amazing!…I am so happy I hired Lauren to photograph my proposal. I now have these amazing pictures to remember such a significant part of our lives.

Everybody has questions. Questions are good!
I’ve tried to answer some of the most common ones here, but that shouldn’t stop you from reaching out to me still!

Weddings book about a year in advance, on average, but if you’re in need of a photographer on short notice, reach out! Your date just might be open! Portraits are usually booked 2-4 weeks in advance, but some choose to book sooner.

There’s a wide range of options available, depending on your needs, and custom quotes are not uncommon. Contact me for a pricing guide.

I’ve been doing this for over 15 years now and love it so much that I’ve started to teach other professionals how to do what I do.
Weddings are never delivered more than 2 months from the date of your wedding, and portraits have a 1 month delivery deadline, but I often deliver sooner.

Packages are varied, in order to fit your needs. Contact me for a free consultation!

From the first time you contact me to long after your images are delivered, it’s important to me to help you every step of the way, from outfit choices for your portraits, to creating a photographic timeline for your wedding day. It matters to me that you remain stress-free and have fun with this experience! Many clients remain friends years later, and that means a lot to me.

OCF is “off camera flash”, and it’s what is used to make most of the images you see here pop off your screen. Very few photographers have more than an elementary understanding of OCF, and many don’t use it at all; meaning when it comes to low-light conditions, candlelit receptions, making sunsets pop with magnificent color, and looking like you’re on the cover of a magazine, it’s necessary to hire a photographer that knows how to use OCF well.

I edit your photos to look timelessly perfect. I purposely steer clear of trendy filters or editing styles. Remember back when selective coloring was popular? Where the whole image was black and white except for the bride’s bouquet for example? We look at those images now and think “what were we thinking?!” My goal is to ensure you never look at your photos that way, and generations from now you’re still proud to show them off.

Well, if you like people who will hug you instead of shaking your hand, who laugh from their bellies, who are laid back and happy, and who have mad car karaoke skills, we’ll probably be best friends.
