So this is us.
We're a husband and wife photography & videography team who are madly in love with each other, and what we do. We're addicted to travel, love a good record, enjoy a good ol' fashioned, and are slightly obsessed with our animals. We've found that best way for us to creatively express ourselves is through your stories, so let's do this together & capture how beautiful these moments really are.
Hey! Thanks for wanting to get to know us.
We’re Jared & Lauren. We had seen each other three times in real life and dated for one month before we got engaged (shout out to the long distance couples!). We have a March anniversary and are going on 9 years of marriage. It really is the BEST and we are so stoked for you to join the club. Lauren is an enneagram 1 with a 9 wing and Jared is a 9 with a 1 wing. Sometimes it feels like we’re the same person. Sometimes it takes us a really long time to decide where to get dinner because we both genuinely don’t care and want the other person to make a decision. Ha. We really are best friends and better together than apart.
We love traveling, so much that we’ve been to 25 countries together, but really our favorite place to be is home. We welcomed our first baby, Holden River, in May 2022. He is our world! We love vanilla lattes, outdoor movie nights, a record over the radio, super suspenseful movies, Amazon prime, and a regular pizza night. We love Jesus, both of our big families, and really love our friends. We currently reside in Jacksonville, FL, but are often elsewhere. Want to ask us a question? Happy to answer here!
Meet The Bowsers
Lauren has lived in 6 different states and 9 different cities, but is a Florida beach girl at heart. She loves a good pinot noir, the 60's, and home design. She's an unashamed cat lady with 3 inside cats and 4 outside. Lauren was the lead photographer for the Nordstrom-owned company Trunk Club, where she excelled in fashion marketing imagery. Some of her print clients include GQ, Elle, Shape, Refinery 29, Rhapsody, Travel & Leisure, and Delta Airlines.
Jared was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He loves traveling, listening to vinyl, cats, a good cocktail, his family, and most of all, his beautiful bride! He is the mastermind behind their wedding videos.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
REAL. Natural, photojournalistic, romantic photos that capture your most authentic moments. No posed non-sense. We don't slap a filter on and call it a day. Your photos should feel timeless. We strive to achieve that.
WHO ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Lauren & Jared! Lauren is your go to gal for photos and when you want a that sweet video goodness, Jared is your guy. You get the benefit of a husband wife duo who understand how the other works. No taking turns, no staged shots, everything is filmed and shot side by side to get the real moments. You also get the benefit of two end products that are cohesive & compliment each other.
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Yes we do! We encourage engagement sessions because they give us an opportunity to build a relationship with you before your wedding! That, and you get some pretty photos to share. We also offer discounted engagement session when booked with a wedding package.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
YES! Absolutely! We travel for most of our weddings, all we require is accommodations and airfare. We love destination weddings and frequently offer custom packages. Ask us about it!
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
We are currently based out of the beautiful city of Jacksonville, FL.
WHAT ARE YOUR WEDDING PACKAGE RATES?
Our weddings start at $3,700. Regular portrait sessions start at $700. Get in touch with us for a full price sheet.
WE LOVE WHAT WE SEE! WHAT'S NEXT?
Let's do this thing! To book your date we require a 30% deposit and a signed contract. Everything is done online so it's super easy!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
On average we usually deliver between 75-100 photos per hour.
When will we receive our images ?
No later than 6 weeks after your wedding.
Do you have insurance?
Yes! This is our full time job so we take it pretty seriously. We have general liability as well as insurance on all of our gear.
Can we give you a shot list?
We believe that the best photos are unplanned. Instead of worrying about crossing things off a list, we want to document those organic moments as they happen. Our hope is that couples that hire us trust our vision & creative process.
