My photography is a blend of fine- art styling and documentary reportage that aims to tell the complete story of your wedding day. From the tasteful details that you’ve spent months picking out, to your grandparents holding each other on the dance floor over the final notes of “At Last,” I’m there with camera in hand.

I draw from my background and formal training as a classical painter, editorial photographer, and commercial designer to capture your love story for generations to come.

As your Virginia wedding photographer, I want you to spend as much time as possible celebrating your joyful day with family and friends while we craft elegant, artistic images that will stand the tests of time (just like the two of you!)

Have a look around and if you think we'd be a good fit , I would love to hear from you.  Drop me a line and we can set up a time to begin planning your dream wedding photography!

I was lucky to grow up in an artistic family where I had a paintbrush and camera in hand almost before I could walk.

I completed a specialized degree in photography, painting, and design at The University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, and in 2007, I began my career as a  photographer.

Fast forward a bit, and I fell  head over heels in love with a cute British guy named David who swept me off my feet on the dance floor to the tune of a tango.

Love pulled me up to Virginia, where I further honed my photo ninja skills working as a journalist and as Art Director for the American Shakespeare Center. In 2012, I took a leap and went full time with Lauren D Rogers Photography.

I married that handsome man on a rainy fall day in 2014 at an historic Virginia estate with stone-covered ivy and dust in the corners. My dress was really, really poofy, and my beautiful bridesmaids wore gold sequins. Gold sequins are a weakness of mine.

I took another big step in 2015 and opened The Studio at Cary Street in the heart of the Richmond Fan District, fulfilling a lifelong dream of a dedicated space to create and share my art.

These days, I am living my happily ever after in Richmond, where we try to fill every room in our house with love, laughter, and many, many books.

I want you to have a giant canvas of a portrait on your dining room wall to show off just how good, and how happy, you look.  And I want you to have a memory-filled album on your coffee table, full of the fleeting, emotional moments and the carefully currated details of the day — a family heirloom your children and grandchildren can treasure in the years to come. All of my wedding coverage is specifically tailored to fit your wedding day. You shouldn't have to choose between beautiful, timeless portraits and intimate candid coverage of your wedding day just to fit into a cookie-cutter package, and I won't make you!

I believe that the best stories are filled with interesting characters. I believe that art has value and that everyone should be obligated to bring more beauty to the world than ugliness. I believe that love is a great adventure and an act of courage. I believe that photographs are the an essential part of your legacy. I believe that digital images have their place but a leather album or a beautiful art print never go out of style. I believe that your wedding photos should be a mix of  beautifully styled editorial details, epic portraits, and the quiet moments that live in between. My favorite emails begin with “This might sound crazy, but...”


Full-day tailored wedding coverage from $3500.


All wedding packages include high-resolution digital files with personal print rights and a complimentary engagement session. Albums, canvases, art prints and additional heirloom products are available a la carte.
