about lauren hollamby

meet the photographer

Hi, I’m Lauren, thanks for stopping by. The one with the big cheesy grin is me, the other two are my mini me’s, actually they’re more like mini versions of my husband Matt, but nevertheless. I’m from the UK originally, so please excuse my spelling!

I was drawn to photography because quite simply I absolutely love taking photos. A photo has the ability to freeze special moments in people’s lives. Enabling you to look back with fond memories. I honestly believe there is nothing better than being able to capture these moments in time for you. I also just really love weddings of every kind, such happy occasions, with great food, dancing and lovely people, what’s not to like?!

I’m a wedding, elopement and family photographer based in Canmore, Alberta, but I absolutely love to travel. My photography style is relaxed and focused on capturing your special moments as they unfold. I specialize in a documentary approach, documenting your day as it naturally progresses.

On your wedding day, I like to be an extra pair of hands, one with lots of wedding experience and expertise, ensuring everything runs smoothly and stress-free. Whether you’re having an elopement wedding or a large wedding with all your friends and family, I’m there for it all. I’ll climb mountains in the night to capture the most amazing sunrise, hold your dress, laugh with you (maybe even cry with you too), entertain children & capture the most incredible photographs. My goal is to help make your day the best day ever.

I am a member of both Fearless Photographers and Canadian Wedding Photographers. I have also received awards with the Guild of Photographers. 

Always just a message away at any point, please feel free to ask me anything. 


Thank you Lauren. We absolutely love the photographs.

Derek & faith, Bawtry Hall

My current favourite weddings/trends:

  • Elopement weddings – what could be better than climbing a mountain or cycling to a lake for a stunning sunrise or sunset wedding.
  • A First look – How romantic to have that special first look moment between just the two of you. This is something I wish I’d heard about when I got married.
  • Champagne towers
  • Colourful Florals
  • Micro/intimate weddings
  • Pets at weddings – horses & dogs are a personal favourite
  • Confetti cannons – the more confetti the better!

More than anything I want you to have fun, laugh & have wonderful photographs that tell a story of all those incredible times in your life.

Happily married, with two lovely (most of the time) children. I enjoy family time, the outdoors, travelling, good meals out & cocktails with friends. I also enjoy dabbling in landscape photography and partaking in photography workshops with likeminded people to enhance my skills. Most often found with a camera in hand, whether working or not! If I’m not taking photos of people, you might find me out and about taking landscape photos. There are so many beautiful spots in Alberta. You can see some of the landscape photographs I’ve taken in my online shop. If I don’t have a camera in hand, it’ll probably be a glass of wine! Do you think we’d be a good fit? Now you have a little insight in to me & my world, I’d love to find out more about you & your plans.

Get in touch, I’d love to hear from you
