  • 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

Tuna Family {Portrait Session} Laguna Beach Family Photographer

I can’t believe we are  more than half way through the summer! Where has all the time gone? I am so thankful that my summer hasn’t been cooped up in a hot house. That’s definitely how I felt last summer when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy. I was 9 months pregnant, working my day job and spending most of those summer days in front of the a/c unit my parents had bought my husband and I. This summer though has been spent going to the beach, hiking with friends, having 4th of July parties and attending summer concerts. It has definitely made up for last year!:)

The session below definitely gives me all the summer vibes. It also makes me wish I owned an ocean view house in Laguna! One day maybe.:)

Genesis! {1 Year Birthday Session} Culver City Family and Child Photographer

The family and I are off on a plane this afternoon to Portland, Oregon. Not only are we spending time with my sister, but my sister and I get to shoot a river side wedding! I am so looking forward to a time away with family. It’s been a full couple of weeks and I hoping this is just the thing we needed – a little bit of work, a little bit of play and all in our second favorite state!

Here is a sweet session I did of little Genesis and her family. It’s been so sweet to watch this family grow as we did. We married the same year, we had children near the same time and it’s been awesome to watch them do life together. Looking forward to seeing them grow and hopefully, catching those moments and the ones in between!

Summer!!! {Promo Mini Sessions} Playa Vista and Redondo Beach Family Photographer

The last spring I had some of my favorite mini sessions. It was stripped down, and it was just me and some really great families.  It was so nice to catch up with old friends and at the same time meet new ones. I look forward to my mini sessions for this exact reason. It creates a space for anyone to come and not just have a session with me, but go home with some really great moments of their family. Now that my family has grown, I have a deeper understanding of when my mom asks me to bring my camera to family functions. My child has grown so much in under a year and each day she changes! My mind can only capture what it is able to remember, but a camera… a camera can keep that moment still in every detail! I think mini sessions are a perfect way to make sure to have some moments of your life standing still, in a picture always for you to look back on.

 

I am happy to announce I’ll be doing back to school minis in August! Keep a look out in July for more info. Don’t miss the next opprotunity to catch those special moments with your family.

XOXO,

Lindsay

Palos Verdes Country Club Bridal Shower

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a bridal shower. The bride-to-be was surrounded by friends and family and absolutely stunning in her custom made gown. There was dancing, games, amazing flower arrangements and food that looked too good to eat. Everything was literally picture perfect.

I was reminded my during her shower of my own shower. All of the sudden all those pre-wedding feelings came back to me and I was reminded how amazing it is to have a village behind you. These first almost two years of marriage haven’t been honeymoon bliss from start to finish and if I didn’t have the group I do behind me I don’t know if we could have gotten this far. I am so thankful for those who stand around us every day with support and encouragement. I need it!

XOXO,

Lindsay
