“Lauryn was recommended to me as I said photographer during pre-production of my short Star Wars fan film “The Fallen Apprentice”, and they didn’t disappoint! The photos that they took were absolutely exemplary and I was pretty amazed by the quality, some were even used for our posters and such! I definitely recommend them, I only wish I can provide more than 5 stars on this! 🌟”

Why I Do This

Long story short, Lauryn thinks and dreams in camera movements. This is the best way they have found to explain how they can capture moments the way they do. With Those In Motion, Lauryn is working with theaters, actors, and production companies to capture magnificent moments on film to help market each clients project and memorialize moments that will be passed on to family and used to the tell the stories of the actors, the crew, and the production itself.

In each moment captured by Lauryn, you will see and almost hear a story being told by photographer and actor. This is one of the things that sets Lauryn a part in their field. Their focus on storytelling through photos and film, gives their work a depth and genuine reflection of the human experience they capture.

Lauryn first fell in love with film because of their dad. Early on, Lauryn was exposed to a variety of storytelling methods using film which combined with their ability to see in the world in camera shots, gave way to a career path they couldn’t ignore.

Early in her career, Lauryn had the opportunity to write, shoot, and direct a short film that later found its way to Youtube and has over 121K views. This short film tackled difficult topics and was one of Lauryn’s first film projects. Their storytelling and camera angle viewpoint are vividly apparent in this film.
