Lauren Baker Photography Minneapolis Saint Paul Twin Cities Minnesota Wedding Photographer Engagement

Missy and I met last fall at the Minnesota Wedding Fair in Minneapolis, MN and we instantly hit it off! We were talking about her and Alex’s engagement session and where they might want to take there photos and Missy said they loved being outdoors so anywhere with lots of trees would be very meaningful […]

Lauren, Matt, my associate Danielle, and I met at the Minnesota Wedding Guide’s Wedding Fair in mid-October and there was an immediate connection. Not just because they have the same names as my fiancé and me (though that was certainly an initial and hilarious icebreaker) but because of their romantic and love-bug spirits.

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.

OMG! I absolutely love these two! Alexandra and Cameron seriously are one of the sweetest, kindest, and warmest couple’s I’ve ever met! 

After rescheduling because of super frigid temps, the three of us met at Lebanon Hills Park on a very blustery winter afternoon. Is it just me or did this winter just DRAG ON AND ON?! 

Thankfully, my winter blues melted away with Alexandra and Cameron’s giggles

Jessica and I have known each other since freshman year of college. We were both dance majors at the University of Minnesota and both had an affinity for The Daily’s crossword puzzles. Every lunch hour, we’d get a group together and try to solve them. 

When I heard that Jessica had gotten engaged I knew it had to be to a very special guy. And that’s 100% Tim. He’s sweet, wonderful, caring, and completely loves Jessica!

It was another cold cold winter afternoon but Aliya and Taylor brought all of the warmth to their engagement session!

I can’t tell you how well they handled being outside in 0 degree weather…so well that we all went for hot toddy’s afterwards as a trea

This winter was pretty crazy. Lots of below zero temps and frigid mornings. The morning of Jen and Nick’s engagement session was one of those mornings. We’re talking -4 degrees but man…they were troopers.

Thankfully, the plan wasn’t to stay outside for long. Thank God! These two had the brilliant plan of taking their engagement photos at one of their favorite places — Hymie’s Vintage Records.

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!
