Lauren Haddow

intimate wedding + elopement photographer


Hi! I'm Lauren! I'm a born-and-raised California girl who's traded in the West Coast for the Mountain West. I love having adventures with my husband and two kids, and living in Billings, Montana has been one of our biggest ones yet!

I love long walks in the mountains and even longer naps on my couch. When I'm not photographing weddings or elopements, you can find me building lego spaceships, reading, or eating salsa.

let's be friends!

Step 1: Get to know me!

Step 2: Get to know my work

I believe a good photograph should make you feel something. It should capture a connection to a person or place. When you look back on your wedding photos in 20 years, I want your photographs to reflect the love you feel for each other. 

Making great photographs isn't just about location and subject. It starts with a connection, between me and my couple. Those connections have become the most valuable thing to come out of my photography. 


Step 3: Get some answers

Planning a wedding is stressful, even for the most relaxed bride. There are hundreds of choices to make, including who should photograph the big day. 

I've tried to make your life a little easier and preemptively answer all your major questions like: how much will it cost? what should we wear to our engagement session? should we do a first look? what is a typical wedding day like? when will we get our images? and so on.

Planning a wedding is hard. Choosing a photographer should not be.
