Lauren Nicole Imagery began as a small college side hustle during my pursuit of an art education degree at Missouri State University. Armed with a nice camera and a passion for capturing moments, it was a fellow classmate who saw my work and suggested that I start charging for my photography. Fast forward ten years, and I've had the privilege of photographing over one hundred weddings, with each one still filling me with excitement and joy.

My love for photography blossomed in high school when I took my very first class. It was there that I found an incredible teacher who ignited my creative spirit and guided me towards my true artistic calling—photography. The process of developing my film in the darkroom was magical, and I drew inspiration from my uncle, who pursued photography alongside his career. Today, I wear multiple hats as both a wedding photographer and an art teacher, where I have the pleasure of helping my students express themselves through their own artistic endeavors.

While my business journey has taken me from Springfield, MO to Kansas City, MO, I now proudly call west county St. Louis my home, where my husband and I have settled. While I primarily serve the St. Louis metropolitan area, I'm always up for an adventure, so don't hesitate to inquire about destination events. I've had the privilege of capturing beautiful moments in places like Colorado and Canada, and I have an ever-growing bucket list of locations I'd love to explore.

If you're seeking a photographer who will skillfully document every moment with breathtaking results, and someone who will ensure your experience is enjoyable and stress-free, you've come to the right place. I firmly believe that having fun is an essential ingredient in capturing the true essence of any moment. So, if my work resonates with you and you're ready to go on a photography journey together, reach out to me. Let's set up a time to discuss your vision and bring it to life through our collaboration.

I can't wait to connect with you and create something truly special.


With excitement and creativity,

 Lauren N. Schlesselman
