Meet your Media team + Planning crew + Adventure buddies
Hey!! We're Lauren & Matt!
When we're not capturing your adventures, we are usually on adventures of our own
Get to know us
Our story begins when we met each other our freshman year at Boise State University as student athletes. We were great friends for about a year, but something just clicked and we knew we had deeper feelings for each other than friendship and started dating at the beginning of our sophomore year. We're now going on our fourth year together, and cannot wait for all of the memories we will make together for the rest of our lives.
Both of us have always had a love for taking photos and creating videos since we were little kids. Endless Youtube videos were made, and hundreds of photos of mountains, plants, and dogs were taken. Although we grew up in different states, we grew up very similar. in that aspect.
Lauren decided to start taking photography a bit more serious in 2019, and later started Laurenslensview Photography in 2020. After about a year of gaining incredible experience and knowledge about the wedding industry, we sat down and discussed what lit our hearts on fire. Matt went with Lauren to the first ever elopement they did, and they both had the absolute best experience, and knew that was what they wanted to do for a living.
So in January 2022, Intimate Adventures Media was born. We've had so much fun building up our business to be what it is today.
We are both extraverted introverts, and love being around people who love the outdoors just as much as we do. We also love dogs, so we always STRONGLY encourage bringing your dog to your elopement. We love living in Boise because of how close we are to so many outdoor opportunities, one day we hope to move to Jackson Hole, Stanley, or somewhere abroad, but we are excited to see where life takes us!
Hi there! I am the main photographer for Intimate Adventures Media. Matt actually told me I should start my own photography business a few years ago, and I'm sure glad he did, because now we get to travel together and take photos and videos of adventurous couples! I always knew a 9-5 job wasn't for me, so photography seemed like the perfect fit for me! I tried out tons of different niches, but adventure elopement and wedding photography lit up my soul the way no other niche could.
My life has drastically changed since I moved to Idaho. I relearned how to ski, learned to fish, and became obsessed with the different landscapes and beauty that the state has to offer. I can't wait to do some more travel abroad, and a few places on my bucket list are Switzerland, New Zealand, Iceland, and Norway.
Howdy doody, I am the videographer for Intimate Adventures Media. I've always had a passion for shooting and editing video and I am thrilled to be able to join Lauren and capture so many amazing couples.
I grew up in Reno, Nevada and spent all of my free time fly fishing, skiing, and camping. I moved to Boise to play baseball at Boise State and when our program was cut (RIP) I transferred to Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska to continue playing baseball. Once I finished playing there I moved back to Boise to be back with Lauren. I love the amazing outdoor access Boise has to offer, and when I'm not here I'm exploring the west with Lauren and fishing in Nevada.
