Lauren did both our engagement shoot and our wedding and we honestly could not imagine working with anyone else. Neither of us are super comfortable in front of cameras and had never done any professional shoots before the engagement session. Lauren and her second shooter Jared, though, made us feel so comfortable that we literally laughed through the entire session. The photo sessions on the day of our wedding were equally fun and they both did a fantastic job of keeping everyone relaxed and comfortable. What was more impressive, though, was how efficient and organized Lauren was. She did a fantastic job placing everyone, giving directions, moving people in and out of shoots and before we knew it, all our pictures were done with time left over to enjoy the second half of our cocktail hour with our guests. This was especially impressive to us because we had never been to a wedding where the bride and groom actually got to enjoy the cocktail hour and it helped us better appreciate our special day. Even when she was quickly moving people around, though, she and Jared never once came across as pushy and still maintained a relaxed, fun environment. She was also a godsend to both of us throughout the day - we were clueless until she showed up - giving subtle directions such as lowering bouquets, how to cut the cake which is apparently more difficult than it seems for some. Perhaps more important than all of this, though, is the fact that Lauren truly cares about the couples she works with and puts in extra effort to capture their special moments. At one point during the reception, the two of us snuck outside to reconnect and have a moment to ourselves. We thought we were all alone until we happened to catch Lauren sneakily set up on the grass in the distance documenting of our little getaway. She cares so deeply about her work and it truly shows in her results. Have you seen her photos?! Ours were absolutely stunning and her candid style really captured the events of our wedding in a way that few other photographers could. The flatlay and scenery shots especially highlighted her creative eye and skill in creating beautiful still shots. Overall, Lauren is such an amazing, kind and sweet person who doesn’t just capture your special day, she adds to it. She and her team were an absolute joy to work with and we would recommend Lauren for anyone who is looking for a fun, efficient, passionate and, above all, talented photographer for their professional shoot. You will not be disappointed.
Lauren is truly amazing at what she does! She is incredibly talented and knows how to make you feel extremely comfortable & natural all while capturing the BEST moments! Lauren photographed my wedding and I will be forever grateful to her for the precious memories she has given us through our beautiful & stunning photos! Thank you so much, Lauren! I am so, so happy you were there to capture & share our special day.

Where do I begin?? Lauren was the very first wedding vendor we chose, and we wanted her to be our wedding photographer so badly that we legitimately picked our wedding date around her availability – not kidding! I was led to Lauren by a friend, and booking her was the best decision we made for our wedding. Lauren is such a talented photographer – she truly has a gift. It seems so natural and effortless, but I know she works extremely hard at what she does. As a newly engaged couple, we had no idea what we were doing, and she guided us every step of the way for all of our photos. When I first reached out to Lauren, she responded promptly and was so sweet & genuine – that showed me how much she cares about her business and client relationships in addition to her art. For as good as she is, she’s so humble on top of that. Over the year of our engagement, I spoke with and met with Lauren several times, during which we were lucky enough to have her capture INCREDIBLE photographic moments of us, from our engagement, to my boudoir, to our wedding. Lauren has become a friend as well – she's just so likable! My two best friends noticed her ridiculous talent, and they followed suit and booked her too, which has been so fun for all of us. I can't say enough good things about Lauren. I know not before long I will see her name on everything in the world of photography and she deserves nothing less!

One of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning was hiring Lauren as our photographer! She is talented, honest, genuine, and sweet, and this shows in the quality of her photos! Lauren responded immediately after our initial inquiry, and every.single.time after that! Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but we knew that when we reached out to Lauren we would get an answer. We did not know where to take our engagement photos, and Lauren suggested a site that was off the beaten path, and AMAZING. She has a way off capturing light to make your photos warm and romantic. When it came to our wedding day, Lauren helped us step by step with our timeline to insure that our photos would be taken in the right lighting, but that we could also enjoy our cocktail hour and reception! Everyone in our wedding party commented about how efficient and sweet Lauren was. We truly cherish the relationship we built with Lauren and cannot wait until the next opportunity comes up to hire her again. Our home is filled with sweet and beautiful memories of such a special engagement and wedding day, thanks to Lauren’s photography. We have, and will continue to recommend her to all of our friends who are getting married, updating family photos, or just want a special photography shoot!

Lauren did our engagement photos and our wedding photos in two totally different locations and she is absolutely amazing! Everything turned out perfect. Every photo opportunity at our wedding she was there and taking photos of everything that was important to us. She captured the perfect moments and can capture the love and happiness everyone felt. I highly recommend her!

Want magazine worthy wedding photos? Want them Speedy Gonzales fast? Want the hard wedding-related decision to be which photos to print? Want a photographer who is so sweet and kind that even if she wasn't taking pictures you would want her on your guest list? Want all of this for an amazingly reasonable price? Then look no further - Lauren is an absolute dream to work and I can't recommend her enough. The pictures are to die for and it means the world to have such beautiful photos of our wedding day.

Lauren is amazing at capturing special moments and allowing you the opportunity to enjoy them for forever!! She is an artist and has an eye for capturing the most beautiful and natural lighting in all of her photos. I have been both satisfied with my engagement session as well as wedding session and plan on continuing using her as a photographer for the future. Lauren, is also super personable, which makes working with her great..she is young and hip, so she knows what looks good..how to position you to look natural and feel great behind the camera. I would truly recommend her to any and everyone!!!
