  • WELCOME!

    Give us a minute to introduce ourselves. We are Lauren and Lindsay of Laurel Isle Photography. Yes, we are sisters and no, we aren't twins (we get that questions more than one would think!) We started this business about 3 years ago with nothing more than a dream, two cameras and a group of people who believed in us. From there we have grown from whatever-you-need photographers to wedding/portrait/boudoir photographers and we couldn't feel more blessed!

    In this last year, Lauren has moved up to Oregon. We now work in both California and Oregon and we LOVE IT! This move has enabled us capture more stories then we ever thought possible. Your story is our thing really. We love to capture how you met, who you love, and where you are headed. Browse around our site, and see what we have done. If you're interested in us capturing your story, feel free to call or email! We would love to hear from you. <3

Mary Ann! {Birthday Party} Culver City Event Photographer

You guys, I’ll be honest; it’s a full weekend. I have two events, regular work, a half marathon to run and a husband to say to goodbye to for the next three weeks. So time is limited, but I wanted to post something!

Here is a super fun Mystery Dinner Birthday party I did a few weeks back. There was a great vibe, great food and beautiful birthday girl to celebrate. I am so thankful to have been apart of it.:)

XOXO,
Lindsay

Mateo’s Birthday! {Event} Montebello Event Photographer

Oh man, am I behind. Mateo had his birthday at the end of January and I am just now getting to it. I don’t like excuses, but I do like honesty… and honestly, this year has not been an easy one. Not only have my husband and I had to juggle all the changes pregnancy brings, but we have had curve ball after curve ball thrown at us. Apparently (according to some wiser couples), that’s typical of the first year of marriage. Well, I am just glad that we are closing in our first year of marriage and I am gladly welcoming the second with open arms.

Enough about me. Here is Mateo. He is thoughtful and loves candy. I think he found the most joy out of day when he was able to collect arms full of candy after an older child had smashed his piñata. It was a good day for a birthday park. The weather was good. The sun was out and there was plenty of swings to swing, slides to slide down and food to be had.

Thank you, Mateo and Family, for letting me be apart of your special day. I had such a fun time chasing the littles around, eating some salad and getting to meet the extended family and friends.:)

I hope to see you all soon!
XOXO,
Lindsay

Miranda and Anthony! {Just Married!} San Pedro Wedding Photographer

Get ready for a ton of pictures because I love this wedding. Mostly because I love this couple. Both Miranda and Anthony were coworkers of mine. We all have at one point and time worked at the coffee shop together and during that time I got to witness a small part of their incredible story.

Miranda and Anthony have been together since high school. However, you wouldn’t know it to look at them. They still act very much like they are only a week into their relationship. It’s awesome and its part of what makes their story so different. Not only have they been together forever, engaged forever (almost 2 years!), but they are just in love as ever.

So when they came to me and asked me to do their wedding photos, I quickly said yes! They decided on a December wedding and there couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for it. The sky was blue, clouds were out and the sun was shinning bright. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

Thank you, Miranda and Anthony, for asking me to be a part of your big day. It was absolutely beautiful and I loved every part of it! I wish you both the best and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes you.:)

XOXO,
Lindsay

Karen! {Portrait Session} Culver City Portrait Photographer

I finally managed to make it to the end of the 2014! There really wasn’t a better way to end 2014 than with this girl, Karen. Karen had never had professional pictures taken for her before and now for her birthday she was finally getting one. It was a lot of fun. We went to downtown Culver City, so we could shoot in front of some of my favorite types of backdrops – alley ways, brick walls, iron fences – downtown has it all! It was a nice change of pace with this session. It was also helpful to have her boyfriend there who got in a couple of photos, made her laugh and kept the smiles coming.

So fun!

Thank you, Karen, for such a sweet session. I hope we get to do it again sometime soon.

XOXO,
Lindsay
