Minneapolis, MN Wedding Photographer

lauren baker photography is a Romantic and true to color

Being in front of a camera can feel awkward AF, trust me I know. Luckily, I know exactly what to do and say to make you feel natural while we take romantic photographs together.

I'm Lauren, a Midwest girl with a romantic heart and an espresso-filled soul. As a wedding photographer in Minneapolis, MN, my mission is to create memories with my clients while taking romantic, visceral, and colorful photographs that stand the test of time.

I spend time getting to know my clients in order to create a relationship that's built on trust. I provide simple direction for my clients so that they feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera. With calm, supportive energy and Spiderman-like senses, I capture my clients naturally by finding their authentic and candid moments within posed ones. I believe play is joyful and joy is beautiful.

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!

- GRACE AND NICK

There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!

Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!

- Alisa AND Adam

Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!

Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!

- Emma AND Erik

My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a  calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.

Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!

- Haley AND Erick

I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
