YOU GUYS. Are you looking for inspiration? Look no further! Have you heard of Lauren Apel Photo? Well, you SHOULD. And you have now. She’s a brilliant photographer based out of Denton, Texas.

Why does Denton sounds familiar, you ask?

OH because Lauren was one of our BRIDES and we photographed her and Mark tying the knot last July! Remember when we went there? Maybe maybe not?


We fell in love with Mark + Lauren. They have become best good friends of ours (who we are actually Skyping with tonight! Woot woot!) and we miss them a lot. Through this past year, we have been following THEIR work together as photographers and I finally just HAD to ask Lauren if I could showcase her work here.

So here’s a bit from one of her engagement shoots she’s recently done, of Lauren + Lee. In her words, here’s what she has to say about the shoot, the upcoming wedding, and the inspiration behind it all:

“Lauren and Lee are two really precious people who are engaged to be married at a sweet backyard wedding on the morning of June 15th.When Lauren first contacted me, she pulled together a pin board (let’s hear it for Pinterest, y’all!) to give me an idea of the feel she was wanting to achieve with the images. She was looking for a Pacific Northwest feel, with lots of greys and blues–something that isn’t easy to accomplish in the short but sweet Texas springtime–full of greens and yellows. In the end I think we pulled it off. One of my favorite parts of the session was the collaboration (which is basically creative magic). Lauren had a specific vision in mind and together we made it come to life. Working with other artists–other creatives–the end result is always awesome. I can’t wait for their wedding. There will be donuts, y’all. And a possible first look at sunrise. It’s impossibly dreamy.”

So check it out, yo. Here’s a handful of my favorites from her shoot with these two lovebirds.

Words from Lauren: “My name is Lauren and I am a lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer in but not limited to the North Texas area. I’m married to the very handsome writer-musician-co-photographer-Mark Apel. Together we live in the great and wonderful Denton, Texas with our pup, Roscoe. My husband and I are both writers as much as we are photographers–that’s why we love weddings and engagements so much–there is always a story to be told.”
