Talk about perfection. Karen and Matt’s Muse Event Center wedding in Downtown Minneapolis, MN was the definition of the perfect Fall wedding. The sun was out but it wasn’t too hot, the shade was cool but not cold, the décor and venue were astonishingly beautiful, and the company…the company was warm, goofy, and filled with so much love.
Annie and Phil’s family farm wedding in Chisago City, MN was, in one word, magical. Weather reports did not look favorable – strong thunderstorms were likely and it was raining on the drive up – but as soon as we arrived to Annie’s sister’s house, the sky opened up and the sun started to shine.
Ever since FIVE Event Center in Uptown Minneapolis, MN opened it’s doors I’ve been dreaming about photographing a wedding there. Kory and Andrew made that dream a reality with their gorgeous wedding.
And when I say gorgeous, I mean GORG.E.OUS! If there was an award for the best dressed wedding party and family, it would, without a doubt, go to Kory and Andrew’ and their peeps.
Sara and Kyle’s love story began, like so many romantic comedies do, in a bike shop. She was the hip, pretty young customer. He was the handsome store clerk. Fast-forward a few years and they’re getting married at the Royal Golf Club in Lake Elmo, MN.
Ojiketa Regional Park, located outside of Forest Lake in Chisago City, MN, has a cute little camp perfect for outdoorsy, canoe loving people. It also is the home of Strom Hall, the venue for Jess and Hannah’s summer wedding.
And when I say camp, I’m not talking about the sleeping in tents type of camping you’d normally associate with regional park camping. Rather, there were clean cabins some with had actual showers!
Hey friends! I’m looking for fun-loving, dependable, love-obsessed to join my team as second shooters and associate photographer(s) for the 2020 wedding season!
The Lumber Exchange in downtown Minneapolis, MN artfully weds cool city textures with sleek, chic elegance and makes for the perfect venue for modern weddings. This was oh so clear at Nora and David’s July 2019 wedding.
The day started with the most hilarious first look ever! Together, Nora and her wedding party schemed together and somehow procured a dinosaur costume. One of their groomsmen wore it and walked towards an unsuspecting David. David turned around and…everyone broke into belly laughs!
Have you been to Madeline Island? Before Katie and Matt’s adventure engagement session I would have said, “No but I really really want to.”
And let me tell ya…this will NOT be the last time I make it to that beautiful island!
“Skipping!” We made Maia’s dreams come true when I asked her and her fiancé, Zac, to skip around Shady Oak Park.
Those reactions make my heart smile. While I love posing my couples in cuddly position, it’s the movement and authentic expressions that come from my fun (and oftentimes goofy) prompts that give our Lauren Baker Photography engagement photos their unique, visceral quality.
What’s a wedding without your best girls and guys? Well, it’s still a wedding but potentially with fewer belly laughs. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen love you with their whole heart and are excited to stand and support you on your most important day to date.
Have you thought of a way you can say thank you to them?
