Introducing NAPCP Retreat Speaker Lauren Carnes!
With a background in marketing, public relations and social media management, Lauren has always been a lover of telling great stories. For 6 years she worked alongside various brands in assessing, defining and telling the stories that made them unique. After years of sharing stories through text, Lauren’s focus shifted to sharing stories through images when she launched Lauren Carnes Photography. In photography, that story may be one of a couple beginning a new life together, of a delicious dish being created, or of a business or product launching. In all these things Lauren loves to serve people wholeheartedly through capturing moments, memories and experiences to tell a story for years to come.
In addition to photography, she coaches other photographers and creatives on photography and effective brand building, marketing and social media efforts to fit their unique brand. Lauren truly enjoys lifting others up and encouraging them to build a business that suits their needs and desires. With a passion for fostering community, Lauren leads monthly creative meet-ups in her city through the Rising Tide Society.
When she doesn’t have a camera in hand, she can be found spending time with her husband, Chip, and their fur-baby, Sophie, in their home together in Augusta, Georgia. Lauren loves to cook, host people for dinner (or brunch!), pursue creative hobbies, and explore new and unique cities.
Lauren Carnes Photography has been featured in multiple publications including Southern Weddings, Weddings Unveiled, The Bridal Theory, Cottage Hill, Style Me Pretty Living, The Celebration Society and HGTVGardens.
