"We can’t say enough wonderful things about Lauren! She really was such an integral part of not only our wedding day, but the whole planning process. We didn’t hire a planner or a coordinator and we still had the most seamless day thanks in large part to Lauren’s organization and help with timelines. In addition to that, she was somehow able to make 2 very camera shy people look and feel so natural in front of her camera. We now have the most amazing photos to remember the most amazing day. She made us feel so special and captured all of the sweet moments. I know we will cherish the pictures and memories forever. Although we did not know Lauren personally before working with her for our engagement photos and then wedding photos, it truly felt like we were working with a close and trusted friend the whole way through. The only downside is that we only get one wedding to hire her for!"
"Lauren has been nothing short of amazing! From the time we booked Lauren, we knew she was the right fit for us! As much as we don’t like to have our pictures taken, she made the entire process so stress free and feel so normal! After leaving our engagement session, we could not believe how comfortable she made us feel and how much we laughed! She took the time out to get to know us and know what was important to us. Lauren was very responsive to everything leading up to the wedding, and made my planning so much easier by providing such a detailed timeline. On the wedding day, Lauren made sure she captured everything I had wanted and so much more! Not only is Lauren a phenomenal photographer, she provided us with multiple sneak peeks and had our entire wedding album done in just a few weeks! She is by far the best and we are so thankful to have had her capture our day!!"
"Could not recommend Lauren enough!!! From the very beginning of the process, even before we booked her, she was attentive, professional, encouraging, and friendly. We felt like she was genuinely excited for us which made us even more excited! For our engagement session she already had locations scouted out and knew exactly what she wanted to capture. She was so fun and encouraging during our shoot - my husband and I are not big "look at me" people, but Lauren's approach made us feel so comfortable and helped us enjoy the day even more. Leading up to the wedding Lauren was always in contact and was happy to answer any questions I had. In my typical fashion I came up with a few last-minute ideas and she was completely honest and supportive about what would be best or what might not work the way we thought it would - which I really appreciated! On our wedding day Lauren and her partner were on time, dressed appropriately, and were completely prepared! They went over a few things with me without overwhelming me and they got straight to work capturing details for the day. I had let her know that there was a park we wanted to take photos in after the ceremony, and she had already found a place there that had a variety of backgrounds/scenery that let us get a ton of different photos in a relatively short amount of time. During our family photos in the church Lauren and her partner made sure we stayed on time, everyone was ready, and that each photo was staged appropriately. I couldn't believe how well this part went! Even for the photos for just my husband and I she gave us a variety of prompts, poses, and ideas and the photos turned out even better than we imagined. Overall, Lauren was and is an excellent photographer and captured all the moments we wanted to remember, made us feel comfortable and excited about our day, and was just fantastic! I would recommend her to anyone! THANK YOU Lauren!!!"
"Lauren was the absolute best. She was recommended to me by a good friend & I actually got to meet her while she was shooting that wedding. I loved the way my friends photos turned out and was super happy that I had her booked for my wedding as well. The day of I didn’t know what to expect because I had no wedding coordinator. This was one of my biggest worries going into the day, but Lauren did such an amazing job, rounding everyone up for photos and keeping me on track so the timeline (that she even put together!) was executed perfectly. Whenever she saw my wedding guest taking photos on their cellphones, she popped in to capture it on her end as well. Everything about the day was perfect and it had a lot to do with how helpful Lauren was and how comfortable she made me feel. 120% recommend her for any event, but especially weddings!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Lauren. She is the sweetest, most professional, caring photographer out there. She really gets to know you and your spouse on a personal level and your pets as well! I am so happy that we chose her to do our wedding photos, she was easy to work with and listened when you had questions and was very responsive via email and text. Even my dad was amazed at how quickly she can organize and capture a photo with 40 plus people in it. I would consider her a friend as well after working with her. DO NOT hesitate to hire Lauren. She will not let you down."
