It’s probably pretty obvious but Sarah, a Forest Lake High School class of 2021 senior, is pretty darn outgoing! She loves science (heck yeah girls in STEM!), hiking, and camping.
You’ll see a trend this year of couples making hard decisions and either postponing their wedding day or reducing their guest list. For Jenny and Fuchie, they decided to do both.
It’s been about a month since my wedding and I thought it would be a good time to tell you all about the gifts I gave my VIPS.
Meet Kenzie, a bright young lady who is so full of confidence, ambition, and spunk that I know she’ll go far in life! A dancer on the Champlin Park Dance Team, we talked about her passion for dance, her future goals with college, and what she’s most looking forward to this year.
How cute is Cadence in her senior photos?! It’s hard for me to believe she’s a senior already. You see, I met Cadence when she was in…oh gosh…elementary school I think.
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!

There are so many different photography styles out there. “Light and airy,” “dark and moody,” “de-saturated,” etc. When hiring a wedding or portrait photographer, it’s important to find one whose personality jives with yours. It’s also important to find one whose photographic aesthetic (or style) resonates with you. Over here at Lauren Baker Photography, we say our style is “bright and true to color.” But how do we consistently deliver bright and true to color photographs session after session and wedding after wedding?
“I’ve got a closet full of clothes and I don’t know what to wear!” If you need help picking your senior photo outfits, I’ve got a free style guide for you!
Unless there’s an area with special significance to you, choosing a location for your portrait session can be daunting. So daunting that you might tell your photographer to choose one for you. But it doesn’t have to be.
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!
