Oh hi there!


I'M LAUREN, The Bandana Brunette.


I'm a Des Moines native who believe all love love—no matter what it looks like—deserves to be celebrated. Serving couples, individuals, and families from the Midwest and beyond, my greatest passion is capturing your most special moments...and finding the perfect margarita.

My mission

Capturing love unique to you

Social media has created a definition of "picture perfect", and y'all: I'm not buying it. I'm interested the picture perfect YOU, no matter what that looks like.

However you identify, whomever you love, I'm here to support you and tell your story.
