Hey Friend!

I’m Lauren, your favorite spunky wedding and portrait photographer based out of Minneapolis, MN.

You inspire me. In fact, it’s your unique story that allows me to create beautiful, romantic, and authentic photographs. There’s no greater joy than telling the passionate, freehearted, perfectly imperfect stories of down-to-earth folk like YOU.

Life is full of significant milestones — milestones we want to remember forever. But those moments don’t always need to feel super serious. Instead, they can (and should) be approached with grace, love, and a whole lot of laughter. That’s how I approach my work and that’s the experience you’ll get when you hire me.

If having a relaxed, laugh-filled photography experience sounds good to you, chances are we’re a good fit and we should totally meet!

Lauren Baker Photography about me

I'm an Irish girl and I'm completely fascinated by Ireland (ask me about the time I climbed Croagh Patrick).

I'm also incredibly drawn to the symbolism of the various Celtic knots. My favorite knot is the tree knot. It symbolizes wisdom, the cycle of life, balance, family, and so much more. In fact, that symbolism was the initial inspiration for the tattoo on my arm.

When thinking about a logo to represent my brand and what drives me, a branch from a Celtic tree seemed perfect!
