The Wedding Experience

You and your fiancé are laid-back, passionate, and a little camera-shy. You want lots of romantic wedding photographs because let's be honest, you think you're a little awkward and the only photos you have together are selfies. You also want to relax on your wedding day so you can actually enjoy it...

Does this sounds like you? If so, you're 100% in the right place and you're a Lauren Baker Photography couple!!

From start to finish, my couples know they’re in the trusted hands of a professional who has seen it all, knows how to deal with it all, and will go the extra mile so they don't have to worry about a thing. As a dreamer, a romantic, and a self-described organizational geek, I’m the perfect person to entrust with your priceless wedding photography.

I believe that having a game plan gives us the freedom to slow down, relax, and enjoy the day. For that reason, I'll create your wedding photography timeline with plenty of breathing room. I'll also help you prepare for any and all seasonal weather concerns, guide you so you feel natural in front of the camera, and design your first family heirloom - your wedding album! The wedding experience truly is full-service, so you never have to worry about a thing!

next step

02. Book it - Now that we’re official, we can relax and start planning the laid-back wedding of your dreams! You’ll get periodic emails from me full of helpful planning tips, my preferred vendor list, and my Wedding Couple's Guide.

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!


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!
