Lauren Baker Photography Minneapolis Saint Paul Twin Cities Midwest Minnesota wedding photographer Showit United 2019

This November I attended my first ever photography conference. I’ve attended workshops, retreats, and put together my own styled shoots but I’d never been to a conference before. Truth be told, I didn’t know there were such things for the photography industry. Those were things that business executives and people with “real jobs” attended…not something […]

Watson Block, a new venue in the heart of Downtown Minnesota, is a very cool, very hip venue and I freaking love it!

Old timey castles, mist in the sky, and greenery as far as the eye can see. Sounds more like a description of a quaint wedding in Scotland rather than one just north of Minneapolis, MN but earlier this fall, Danielle and Peter’s Edinburgh USA Golf Course wedding in Brooklyn Park, MN felt like it was picked up and plunked down in the Scottish capital.

Lauren Baker Photography Minneapolis Saint Paul Twin Cities wedding photographer Muse Event Center

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.

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.

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!

Kirsten and Mike’s wedding at the Loft at Studio J in Stillwater, MN was SO. MUCH. FUN. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a long time!

Their goofiness and radiant smiles infected all of their guests. As the day and evening progressed, the jovial energy grew until it exploded in an all out dance party.

This French inspired wedding styled shoot had my name written all over it. Case in point: the use of lavender…y’all know I love me some French Lavender! And the fact that I got work cross not one, but two bucket list vendors off my list was especially appetizing.

Karen and Matt get the Best Balance award of 2019. Seriously! Ice covered nearly every walking path we took while taking their engagement photographs and they didn’t fall…not even once! I had a few stumbles but thankfully we all walked away unharmed.

Meet my new best friends, Kirsten and Mike. They’re hilarious, down to earth, and their infectious laughter makes my heart sing.

We met a few months ago and I kid you not, as soon as we sat down to talk and get to know each other it felt like we had known each other FOR YEARS! You know that feeling you get when you hang out with a friend from high school whom you hadn’t seen in years and you pick up right where you left off? Yeah, it felt like that…and we literally JUST MET.
