Noue and Jeff’s wedding at Spring Lake Park Reserve’s Schaar’s Bluff Gathering Center in Hastings, MN this weekend was absolutely stunning. The amount of love and joy for this couple was breathtaking and I’m so happy I was able to document it.
Noue and Jeff’s love story started on Tinder three year ago. According to Jeff, Noue basically attacked him (with affection) on their first date…something I can totally see her doing haha! From then on they dated and started falling in love. They both are avid fishermen and love being outdoors or going to their cabin.
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 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!
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.
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!
