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.

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!

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?

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!
