Lauren Baker Photography Minnesota wedding and engagement photographer European wedding St. Paul College Club

Towards the beginning of the pandemic, wedding planner Hailey of Essen Events and I exchanged emails about how my wedding plans were changing. My now husband and I intended to get married in Ireland and were looking forward to having a European adventure…all of which obviously didn’t happen. As a fellow bride in the beginning […]

Lauren Baker Photography Minnesota wedding and engagement photographer Second Wedding Party

I love when I’m able to bring one of my team members along to a wedding day as a second photographer. Most of my wedding collections include one because second photographers help me serve my clients better. While not all of my collections include a second photographer (though they can always be added), and not every wedding needs one, I do think every wedding benefits from have two photographers on site.

But did you also know that the particular photographer behind the lens is just as important as the engagement session itself? This topic is near and dear to […]

Lauren Baker Photography Minnesota wedding and engagement photographer winter proposal Fish Lake Regional Park

There are so many things to be thankful for – yes, even in the wild year that was 2020. For Candace and Chase, on Thanksgiving Day morning, they added one more pretty epic item to their “I’m thankful for XYZ” list! Y’all know how much I geek out over love, right? So when I have the chance to photograph a proposal I geek out and squeal extra hard.

Summer Bridesmaid photos Dellwood Barn Weddings

It should be no surprise that I’m a planner. Pretty soon after I got engaged I started thinking about vendors, location, and the overall vision I wanted. Needless to say 2020 had other ideas and while you and your fiancé hopefully won’t have to replan and redo your wedding vision, the lessons I learned whilst planning my own wedding should hopefully help you plan your wedding, too.

The first time I visited Big Rock Creek – in St. Croix Falls, WI – it was the middle of winter. The grounds were so beautiful covered in powdery snow that I completely fell in love with it. I didn’t think it could ever be more lovely than it was then. But you guys, I was dead wrong!

I’ve got to hand it to Kathryn and Jeremy. I think they win the award for “The couple who kept their cool with the most stressful situation” award. You see, leading up to their wedding day, they weren’t sure that Jeremy’s parents would be able to attend – they live in India and it wasn’t clear if they’d be able to fly or not! Talk about STRESS!

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!
