Meet Lauren



PHOTOGRAPHER, DOG MOM, BEACH GOER, AND PRETZEL LOVER!


If your dream photographer has an authentic, documentary style, pours their heart in to every session, will be there for you every step of the way, then you've found your girl!


I'm a romantic at heart and absolutely LOVE capturing the affectionate and adventurous sides of couples. I've had a passion for documenting life from a young age. I was always the friend with a camera in hand! Since starting Lauren Ashlie Imagery in 2020, I've been honored to tell so many people's stories through images filled with raw emotion.





Love Notes...


Lauren’s photographs are a DREAM. My fiancé and I had an engagement shoot with her at Cape Charles beach. She was able to match the vibe so perfectly with her posing instructions. That was the best part - my fiancé and I had so much fun doing this shoot. Lauren was really flexible with our complicated schedule and was able to reschedule with us when we needed it. She was communicative and quick - we got the full collection exactly when she said, 3-4 weeks later. Her editing style is gorgeous and works to enhance the energy and natural beauty of the beach and really captured the joy and love of my fiancé and I. I cannot recommend Lauren Ashlie enough. She is professional, quick, a great communicator, and most importantly, a fantastic photographer. Her lighthearted nature and kind smile will put you right at ease in front of the camera.

Lauren is amazing! If you are looking for an organized, fun, detailed, and kindhearted photographer, she is your girl!  Lauren photographed our wedding in November 2023 and did outstanding. From our original meeting to discuss our vision, to the delivery of the online gallery, Lauren exceeded our expectations. She communicated often leading up to our event, and also afterwards when sneak peaks and full gallery were ready. Our photos could not have been better, fully capturing our desires for a fun party and intimate ceremony.


Lauren is a very kind and fun individual! She will do whatever you ask to capture your vision while also keeping you on schedule; she even had tissues for me during our first look!  Lauren, thank you for capturing our day, and helping us have a way to forever reflect on our wedding day and the fun we had with our family and friends!

Love Notes...


Lauren was such a delight to work with. She has the best communication, flexible, passionate, caring and really has such a special gift of capturing the essence of a couple. We felt SO comfortable too, it was my first time in front of a camera which made me super nervous! But, she played country music for us and let me tell you, that really set the mood, leaving us feeling like we could just be in the moment and she was there capturing it all!!


You’re amazing Lauren. Our gallery is US, we couldn’t be more pleased.

Lauren is amazing! She captured every detail perfectly. From location Inspo, styling tips, help with posture to making sure your hair is out of your face. She's willing to do whatever it takes to snap the perfect photo. We highly recommend her and cannot wait for our next session.
