Lauren Hope Photography
“Cannot stress enough how great it was working with Lauren. She was the sweetest and helped to walk me through details that I did not even think about. Her sweet personality was definitely a plus. She was so patient and worked great with our family and friends throughout our whole wedding day. On top of that, we love our photographs so much!“
I’m a portrait photographer based on the central coast of California. My services include intimate weddings, elopements, engagements, proposals, college graduates, high school seniors, and families. There is not much I don’t do! It’s interesting. I started photography because I love the art. What I found is that I love the people that I have met along the way even more! My hope is that we will create a lifelong friendship where I can continue to document life’s special moments for you, each step of the way!

“Lauren is AMAZING. I had the pleasure of working alongside her on countless editorials and product photography shoots for the brand, Untamed Petals. She continuously brought our vision to life, and helped us produce viral, memorable, iconic moments. She is truly a breath of fresh air. I would recommend Lauren a million times over!”
“Lauren did my surprise engagement photos and they were absolutely stunning. My now husband hired her to take pictures of us and our dog as a family which then turned into him proposing to me – Lauren captured EVERY detail and every moment. I’m so thankful for all the photos she took of us and I’ll forever have them in my home. 🤍”
“Lauren took couples photos for my boyfriend and me, and I cannot praise her enough for the exceptional experience she provided. Lauren has a remarkable eye for angles and shots that resulted in an impressive variety of close-ups and wide-angle shots. Lauren is not only a skilled photographer, but she has such a warm and friendly personality. Throughout the shoot, we had a chance to chat and get to know each other better. Lauren was also wonderful at guiding us through different poses and locations, all while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. All of these things put my boyfriend and me at ease, bringing out the most authentic photos. I couldn’t be happier with the results of the shoot! Lauren is creative, fun, and produces high quality work. If you’re seeking a photographer who not only captures stunning shots but also makes the experience memorable and enjoyable, Lauren is the one for you. Thank you, Lauren!!”
