PARTNERS IN BUSINESS AND IN LIFE
WE'RE A WEDDING FILMMAKER AND DRONE OPERATOR TEAM
We’re inspired by raw, story-driven films, and fun-loving, adventurous couples who don’t take life too seriously. We want to talk about life with you — the music you like, what weird thing your pet did the other day, and what keeps you driven. We want to go hiking with you, travel with you, grab a beer with you, laugh and get weird with you!
Our mission is to craft a film that you fall totally in love with — that you’ll laugh and cry with. Because life is so much more than a pretty picture with some cool music. So, let’s create something for you that will stand the test of time.
I'm the founder of Laureland, and the editor behind all of our films.
I believe in soulmates, and love a good movie soundtrack. When creating, I like to pull inspiration from my favorite Tarantino films. I believe you never stop learning, and I'm always pushing our films to be even better than our last.
I found my way into the wedding industry accidentally, but it's been a hell of a ride. With a journalism degree in hand, I entered the scene with a clear eye for detail and a passion for telling real, human stories.
I feel so blessed and creatively fueled because of the incredible couples we get to work with. I'm inspired every day by the memories we've gotten to capture-- the loud and epic celebrations, as well as the candid and gentle moments. It is so, so important to me to make sure every person feels loved, listened to, and taken care of on the most important day of their life.
I'm the drone pilot and shooting assistant for Laureland Films.
I grew up in the mountains of West Virginia and love everything there is to do outside--fishing, hiking, biking, you name it. I also really, really like wedding cake.
One of my favorite things that comes with Laureland Films is the people we meet. I love getting to know the couples that reach out to us on a level that goes beyond a client-vendor relationship, and feels more like friendship.
Lauren and I push each other to be our best. We’re constantly reviewing each other’s work, discussing how to make each shot better, tighter, and more creative. But on a personal level, we hope you find us to be refreshing and a blast to be around, too.
We are just a couple of humans that love life and find excitement in the every day, and we can’t wait to tell your story.
People used to tell me, ‘When you know, you know.’ Well, as annoying as it is to hear that cliché over and over again, I’ve found this to be totally true with Travis. We've been together four years, but have done more together in that time than most sensible people would realistically plan for. Only six months into our relationship, we packed up and drove a lap across the country and Canada. Every year since, we’ve made it a point to cross another destination off our bucket lists together – Vietnam, Japan, and Peru to name a few! Through our travels, we’ve come to understand a few things: breaking a sweat for the perfect shot is always worth it, always be prepared for every possible scenario – no matter how silly, and every person has an interesting story to tell.
