Lauren Baker Photography Minneapolis Saint Paul Twin Cities Minnesota Wedding Photographer wedding album

Looking through my parents’ heirloom wedding album not only gave me a glimpse into what life was like when they got married but the act of my parents sharing their photographs with me created an experience and a memory that I’ll never forget. That’s the power of heirloom wedding albums! That’s why it’s still so important to put your digital wedding photographs into a physical heirloom album. The one place my clients choose to spend extra money is on their wedding album!

Words almost can’t do Betsy and Colin’s wedding at the Historic Concord Exchange in St. Paul, MN justice. “Excellent” seems too basic, “Enjoyable” seems too blasé, and “Meant to be” seems too cheese. And yet, they’re all true in the most fantastic way!

Giggles and love reign supreme with Kristine and Steve. I honestly can’t tell you how many times we all busted into giggles but what I can tell you is that my abs were sore the next day from laughing so hard.

When your engagement session starts out with mimosas and brunch you know it’s going to be a great session! Sara, Kyle, and I met up on what felt like a fairly chilly Fall morning (as I write this it’s -10 outside…how I laugh) and before heading out to Willow River State Park, decided what better way to fight off the cold than with some drinks. It was delectable!

Jessica and Tim’s Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel wedding was 100% them. By that I mean it was adorable, intimate, and filled with jokes and laughter.

 

Their story begins with a change meeting. Jessica was working at Nordstrom, where she was a stylist (she used to work at The Wedding Shoppe so it goes without saying that she’s got bomb taste!). Tim worked at the café at Nordstrom. Can you see where this is going?

Dana and John’s Edinburgh USA Golf Course wedding in Brooklyn Park totally felt like it could have been in a castle in Edinburgh, Scotland.

 

The charming pair met on Tinder in 2015 shortly after John moved to Minneapolis from Madison. After a postponed first date thanks to the flu, the two finally met in person. They went to Ginger Hop in Northeast Minneapolis and the rest, as they say, is history.

I always squeal when I get invites and save the dates in the mail and I’m willing to bet that your guests do too. 

But where to start when looking for a place to get yours printed?

When I think of Marie and Stephen’s Dellwood Barn wedding, the word that comes to mind is laughter. I don’t think my face muscles have ever been so sore from smiling so much! And you can see what I mean…in nearly every photo Marie, Stephen, and their guests have the BIGGEST grind on their faces!

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!
