When one plans a winter wedding in Minnesota, one usually expects to deal with the threat of snow and perhaps a blizzard. One does not expect to deal with rain, and certainly not rain that turns into 100% ice the morning of your wedding. Luckily, someone was watching over Haley and Erick’s wedding because everything (and I truly mean everything) came together without any issues.

All of the vendors made it to their respective destinations, guests arrived safely, and Haley and Erick – two of the sweetest humans I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling clients turned friends – got married in front of their closest family and friends.

Haley, Erick, and I met about two years ago (yeah…their planners just like me so we already knew we were going to get along). And over those two years a natural friendship grew that I cherish so deeply. By the time their wedding day came around, it felt like I was getting to photograph two of my closest friends.

I’m so unbelievably happy for these two and can’t wait to be there to celebrate each and every milestone with them!

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


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!
