An Amazing Day!
We had the pleasure of working with Lauren as our photographer, Elizabeth as our coordinator and Kristin as assistant coordinator for our wedding day.Sent on 04/24/2019
We initially chose LLC because Lauren's photographs are absolutely beautiful, and we wanted the photographer and coordinator as a team, which we thought would help with communication and styling.
Lauren takes stunning photographs. End of story. She has confidence in what she is doing (not always a given!!), knows her shots, she knows what looks good and what doesn't, she knows how to ease people up for couple shots (which we were definitely in need of because otherwise it would have just been standing staring at her the whole time with big goofy grins). She made great use of the stormy lighting and from what I have seen so far from our sneak-peaks, these are going to be the best pictures we will probably ever have taken of ourselves!!
Elizabeth really went over and above as a day-of coordinator. She was so great at staying in touch in the run up to the wedding and helping out with getting details finalised. If you want someone who is a genuinely lovely person, professional and personable, this is your wedding planner. She is also a great problem-solver. We had a tornado hit ten miles from our venue and flash flooding. Not an issue. Barely flinched. Everything that was planned for outside got moved seamlessly inside, including rejigging decorations that had a very set space. She did a great job of making everything look really calm on the surface when there is no way there wasn't at least a teeny bit of panic/craziness underneath!
Kristin was always there when you needed her, she was quick, efficient, friendly. An awesome assistant. She also did a great job of getting the bridal suite beautifully candlelit when the weather got gross and it really made it feel like a very special space.
All in all, a thoroughly well deserved five star review!!

Don't hesitate - She's incredible.
Lauren is an impeccable photographer. I've worked with her both as a professional planner (for weddings) and as a client (for a boudoir photoshoots) and each time she creates the most incredible products. The main thing I love about working with Lauren is her professionalism. She knows what she's doing but also makes her clients feel confident, even when they're uncomfortable in front of a camera. She has such an eye for symmetry and emotion and captures both so beautifully in her work. She's also incredibly quick when it comes to delivering sneak peeks which always leaves people feeling excited and at ease. Lauren is one of my favorite photographers and I never hesitate to work with her!Sent on 11/13/2018

I used a former associate at Lauren Louise that has since left, but much of my experience other than the actual photography was with Lauren. She was very responsive, professional, and helpful. She gave us advice about what to wear in our engagement photos and was super helpful on giving us feedback on her timeline. In addition, even though we used her associate, she did the editing of our photos and they turned out absolutely stunning. Finally, I'd add that while I don't know her new associate I can vouch that she hired at least one incredible associate and would have faith that the next one is just as great!Sent on 12/05/2018
