It’s a little bit funny. Adam was one of the first people I ever photographed professionally about six years ago. I was just getting started and needed models to help me practice. Adam answered one of my ISOs and we set up a session.
We talked a lot and had fun while we worked. He told me we was about to move to Los Angeles he also talked about his girlfriend Nicole. She was going to stay back home in Minnesota while he went off to pursue his career in California. Fast forward to a few months ago and there in my inbox was an email from Adam…asking me if I’d be available to photograph his and his fiancé Nicole’s wedding. AH!!!! My excitement was through the roof!
The three of us met at a coffee shop to talk details and to catch up. I was so thrilled not only to be photographing their wedding (because duh, I love doing that) but also because I felt like I sort of knew them since the beginning. Then…the cherry on top…Nicole knows a ton of people I know! She knows couples I’ve photographed in the past and is even related to an artistic director of a professional dance company her in Minneapolis. SMALL WORLD YO!!! It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyways) that I feel very connected to Nicole and Adam and am beyond thrilled to be their photographer!
Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
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 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!
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.
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!
