Contact Lauren Mitchell

I'm a Central Florida photographer with a love for street and wedding photography, especially all mixed together. I have a passion for capturing my neighborhood and everyday surroundings, -- telling a story that runs deeper than first glance -- and I'd like to say the same goes for each and every wedding day. Moody, dramatic light, genuine emotions and the candid, in-between moments before and after the poses? That too.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in the Central Florida area, serving Orlando, Winter Park, Titusville and Melbourne areas.  
For weddings located beyond a 150 mile one-way radius of Melbourne, FL, a $50 travel fee will be added (overnight accommodation additionally required for weddings beyond this radius that end after 9PM). For weddings in Key West, out of state or abroad, please contact me for more information.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been in business since December 2014 and have photographed seven weddings serving as the primary photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I have a photojournalistic approach to weddings, with a street photography influence. I love to get to know my clients and learn their story so I can capture their wedding day in a way that is most meaningful to them, no matter where the setting. Though there are times when I do direct, guide and place my clients and their loved ones in certain specific ways and places, my priority is observing, anticipating and reacting to the moments that surround me. I love candid interactions and incorporating a sense of place. A wedding day is such a beautiful, emotional experience, and I want each couple to be able to live in and feel those moments as much as possible.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

-8 hours of coverage 
-An assistant photographer 
-Access to a digital gallery with edited images for sharing 
-Custom USB drive with all edited images 
-Complimentary engagement session 
For elopements and smaller weddings, please contact me for a custom quote.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I like to meet up with clients at a location that is familiar comfortable for them -- whether it is a restaurant, a park or the beach (Can you tell I live in Florida? If you want to meet up at Publix that's cool too). If the location is too far away for driving, I am available by phone, email, FaceTime or Skype at any time.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a BA in Graphic Design and Art History from San Diego State University. I am also a ClickPro member at the online photography community Click&Co. I've attended multiple online classes at ICP, and recently attended a workshop in Miami with Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I'm a restless spirit and mom to a 4 year old girl who is often my road trip companion and will look back on her life as a series of gas station bathroom breaks. I have a serious passion for documenting the people and neighborhoods around me, specifically in terms of the way the past and future are affecting our lives on the Space Coast. I am a podcast junkie -- especially spooky dramas like The Black Tapes, Tanis and The Message -- and love dark humor and all the musics.
