Our search for a wedding photographer took several interesting turns. First we met with a gentleman who while he was very talented didnt seem to get our vision, style or interests. Then there was the woman who forgot to show up for our first appointment. When we finally met her, she talked over us, made a lot of assumptions and kept calling me Stacy (my name is Karen ). Needless to say, we couldnt picture (pun sort of intended) either of these photographers capturing our day.Sent on 02/16/2009
Then there was Lauren. We met her at her studio, and immediately had a really good feeling. She asked a ton of questions about our plans, made no assumptions and seemed genuinely interested in our vision. (And she never called me Stacy). Most of our meetings with other photographers lasted about a half hour, but when we met with Lauren, we were there for over two hours. By the end of the meeting we were bouncing ideas for our engagement session back and forth and it was immediately clear that she got us and that we had found our photographer.
Working with Lauren was amazing. When we did our engagement session, we knew we wanted something a little edgier than the typical barefoot-on-the-beach photos (not that theres anything wrong with that). We wanted to do our shoot at night in San Francisco kind of a vintage, urban feel. Old movie theaters, strip clubs, neon lights, etc. That night it happened to rain, which made the lighting and the photos super cool. By the end of it we were all soaked, but had such a great time that no one seemed to care. We knew that if this was any indication, our wedding photos would be phenomenal ( and they were).
Lauren really exceeded all of our expectations for a photographer. She was great about communicating throughout the entire process, had a great attention to detail, was always on time and ready to work, and was definitely a fly on the wall for the whole event. We still wonder how she captured some of the moments she did, because they were so personal yet she was so unobtrusive.
Her photojournalistic style and her unique creative vision helped to capture the feeling of our wedding day beautifully. We look forward to working with her again in the future and whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing wedding photographer.

This photographer was awesome at my wedding!! She is a very good listener, has alot of patience and organized. She is easy to talk too and easy to work with. She captured every moment of the wedding and more. Friends and family who weren't able to come to the wedding, has said that they felt like they were there because of the pictures. I highly recommend Cohn Frankel Photography! You won't be disappointed.Sent on 04/14/2008

Some people may be weary of reviews with 5 stars in every category, but Lauren was fantastic! She was attentive to our needs and worked with us to give us the most for our budget. She surprised us with little extras here and there, which made us feel like she really values her clients and the relationship she has with them.Sent on 04/19/2008
We booked her services over a year in advance and decided to purchase one of her wedding packages. We also ordered an album and plan on purchasing the digital negatives from our wedding.
If you're looking to capture your event, wedding or otherwise, with an experienced photojournalist, request some information. You won't be disappointed when you see how beautiful your event turned out when all of the special moments and details are captured by Lauren.
Lauren takes wonderful photographs and covers everything at a wedding, especially those spontaneous moments that capture the whole essence of the celebration. She was kind enough to send me photos of our band at a wedding we did where she was the photographer and those are the best band photos I have--so good I posted them on our web site! She really gives you your money's worth--many photos and top quality. --Steve Ezzo Entertainment
Lauren is one in only a handful of photographers that I trust to send my overflow when I am already booked.
Lauren is a true photojournalist at heart capturing beautiful touching moments. Not only does she have a great eye, but she has fun yet professional personality that puts couples at ease.
