But when it comes to your special day? I show up on pure adrenaline (no coffee needed) because I’m THAT excited to do my job and capture your love story. With over 10 years of experience shooting couples in SoCal, I’ve refined my own style and flair to showcase your personality, love, and candid moments in an editorial yet true to tone fashion.
I’m here to make sure things stay on track and I always bring the chill, stress-free vibes so you can relax! If you ever asked me what I love most, it’s landscape photography so I bring these skills to the table to capture beautiful wide shots and intricate ring details. With Lauren by my side, we balance each other and together we combine artistic vision and methodical precision to capture your precious moments.
Being together for 6. years, we're tying the knot in the upcoming fall of 2022! We're both nature lovers and explorers at heart. One of our favorite trips together was a road trip in Banff and Jasper National Park in Canada. Eric is my yin to my yang as we balance each other with or polar opposite personalities! He's definitely the more conservative and logical person while I like to spice it up and add a bit of adventure. Together we've grown PSP and expanded our team to capture more love stories within Southern California! Reach out to us today to vibe with us!
In 2010, PSP was founded by Jay Balanza who took Lauren under his wing and introduced her to the world of photography. After he retired, Lauren continued to grow his baby to what it is today alongside her fiancé Eric.

My fiance and I were nervous for our engagement session but she made us feel so comfortable. Her energy radiated, she was creative with all the poses she showed us, and was patient when we struggled. The pictures came out natural and airy just as I imagined—if not better.
Our dream couples seek adventure, love to have fun, and value artistic expression. They trust us to capture the little details and appreciate the simplicity and effortless experience of working together.
