I'm Lauren Olivia!
I am small town, margarita loving, fast talking, stationary hoarding wedding photographer. My body is 65% water and 35% pizza.. supreme with anchovies to be exact. Even though I work for myself I have two jack russells who rule the house and I've been in love with the same boy since high school. I love design work and will flip for anything rose gold or blush in colour but grew up a total tomboy. My Nanna once told me, "You don't wear your heart on your sleeve Lauren, you wear it on your face." Olivia is not my real last name, it is my middle name and the fact I photograph people in love for a living is simply incredible. I babble way too fast and way too much - have fun keeping up.
