Like a wild flower, she spent her days allowing herself to grow. Not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all, knew of her light. 


What I love most about this job is the emotion photography brings me.
I cry, I laugh, and cry some more.

Hi, I’m Hannah! Many call me Hans Lu.  Lu is a shortened version of my middle name, Lucretia. That's where Lu's Lens Photography comes from.  I’m a homegrown Michigan gal, and recently relocated to Nashville, Tennessee!   You can find me logging some marathon miles, chasing our wild Vizsla around, or eating an entire box of Cheez-its while washing them down with a glass (or two) of red wine.

I graduated from Northwood University in 2010, where my degree taught me how to run a successful business.  But how do you successfully capture a beautiful photo?  Well, I tell stories. I want to hang out with you. Go wine tasting. Be your personal assistant on your Wedding day.  Become BFF's with your 3 year old.  I connect,  I photograph, and make memories.  There's no teaching that. I'm a natural light photographer who will drag you out of bed at 6am or make you hang out with me until the sun sets on 9pm on a summer night.

Real. Raw. Authentic.

I want to give that to you.

What I love most about this job is the emotion photography brings me.  I cry, I laugh, and cry some more. All. The. Time.   A photo should tell a story and that's my ultimate goal. To be a fly on the wall and capture the beauty of your love story or your every day life.   Then, we'll be buddies. k?

I hope to capture whatever memory you're seeking to hang tight to.   Whether it's your Wedding Day, your parents 40th Anniversary Party, or your Newborn's first week home.  Let me help you tell that story and so much more.  Stop by my Contact page and say hi! 


Hannah is an AMAZING photographer! Our engagement shoot was STUNNING! And our wedding was nothing short of amazing! She was professional, organized and our entire family and wedding party loved her! Our sneak peak brought tears to my eyes and I’m counting down the days until we get all the shots! I can not say enough about her!!!

We could not be more happy with how our photos turned out. Not only did she make us look like a Wedding dream, even though it was 100 degrees out, she also was on top of everything to make sure our day went smoothly and we were on schedule. My guests and wedding party raved about her. She is extremely sweet and kind and is always available to answer any and all questions. My husband and I would highly recommend her!

“I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed our session with you. As you know, planning a wedding can be stressful, but we have an added layer of not knowing how people are going to react to two brides. Often it's not intentional at all but it's the little things that can take away the feeling special (like getting the pronouns wrong over and over while amber was dress shopping). I had no doubt you would do a great job but you really made us feel special and beautiful. So thank you for just treating us like any other couple. So excited for next year.”
