This morning my email list received some big news: Matt, Aife, and I are moving to Boston, MA this fall. That’s right y’all, I’m finally making the move and am now, in addition to a Minnesota wedding photographer, I’m a wedding photographer in Boston!
You might be thinking, “Why are you moving?” In short, so we can try out living somewhere new.
I’ve lived in Minneapolis for all but one year in my life and Matt has always wanted to live near the ocean. The timing feels right so we decided to go for it.
Your next question might be, “Will you keep working in Minnesota once you move?” Yes, I’ll still work in Minnesota as long as there are people here who want to work with me.
I have weddings here this fall and next year and my parents still live in town, so I’ll come back home regularly. And whenever I do come to visit, I’ll set up mini-session days for us to get together, photograph your family, and play.
Speaking of Mini sessions, my Fall Mini Sessions are being held on Sunday, October 16 in the Twin Cities. Sessions are first come first serve and you can sign-up for your time slot here:
I know this news may come as a shock. If you have any questions, whatsoever, please don’t hesitate to ask them! I’m both excited and nervous for this transition and hope you’ll still be here to cheer my business and me on!
Q: Will you be able to photography my Minnesota/Wisconsin wedding?
A: Absolutely! I create custom wedding collections for all of my couples and travel is always included in my proposals.
Q: My child is going to be a senior after this year, can we still take their senior photos with you next summer?
A: Yes! I plan to set up Minnesota senior session week(s) in July or August. Registration for those dates will be released in early Spring and will be booked on a first come first serve basis.
Q: How often will you be back in Minnesota?
A: I don’t have an exact answer to that but I will make a point to visit regularly, especially in the summer and possibly the winter, too. I can’t promise I’ll have MN Winter mini sessions each year, but when I do, you’ll be the first to know and the first to be able to secure your session.
Q: Where are you moving to in MA?
A: We’ve decided to rent an apartment in Salem, MA this year and hopefully will be able to buy a house somewhere once we’ve gotten a feel for different neighborhoods.
Q: I’m going to be in Boston/the New England area, can I schedule a session with you while I’m out there?
A: Yes! That’d be so fun!!
How do we even start to say thank you for all the work and effort you put into our wedding day?
- Josie and Scott
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.
Lauren made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable!
- Amy and Luke
We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!
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!
