Jessica Lauren Photography

Believer. Dreamer. Dog Mom.

Hi! So if you’re here you know I’m a photographer, and I live in Illinois, I hope! I’ve always loved photography, but recently just started pursuing my dream of having my own business in February of 2016!

Lets get coffee, send me an email, I love making new pals!

My goal as a photographer is to serve my clients well, and develop a friendship that will ultimately make your experience loving and memorable. I love capturing my clients JOY.
I married my best friend and the dancing fool, Mitchell, on December 19, 2015. We’ve got three great dogs. If you’re a dog person you know how well a dog completes the family, and let me tell you, two sure makes it a full house!

Enough about photography, a little more about us, Mitch and I! We both love building things and fixing up our house. We could spend HOURS at Lowes. I’m not joking, it’s sad how giddy we get about talking about what we should do next to our house, or what tools we should add to our garage! It probably doesn’t help that my daycare was a cabinet shop growing up. Bring on the power tools! You can check out some blog posts about the work we’ve done and what I talk myself into building on Sunday afternoons!

If we’re not home or shooting a wedding chances are you can catch us on a boat skiing our hearts out, or just soaking up the sun on a lake somewhere (preferably Fish Lake in Michigan, but we’re not picky (yes we kind of are)). I’m thankful for the lakehouse we’ve got to enjoy the last 26 years and hopefully many more to come! If you follow my blog in the summers chances are you’ll see lots and lots of lake posts, but we love it so why wouldn’t I post about it!?
Enough about me! Lets talk about YOU, send me an email! I’d love to chat with you!
