Lauren Baker Photography Minneapolis Saint Paul Twin Cities Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Everything about this styled shoot was magic. Ok, maybe not the car crash my second shooter and I were in that totaled my poor Jetta whilst on our way home from the shoot…but everything else was pure magic! Kelly, from Big Rock Creek, approached me about a year ago with the idea of putting together […]

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 […]

You said yes to the dress, you found the perfect shoes, and now you’re on the quest to find those oh so special bridal accessories. We’re talking earrings, necklaces, and bracelets – all of the items that will complete your wedding day look.

But you don’t want just any jewelry. You don’t want jewelry that a hundred other brides will wear on their weddings, right? You want bling that’s just as unique and one-of-a-kind as your ring and your dress. In other words, you want custom designed pieces, hand-crafted by individuals who care about you.

You’re in luck! Why? Because I’m sharing my personal favorite accessory vendors with you!

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.

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!

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.”

“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?
