It was a refreshing experience to work with Meadowlark Stills! We cannot imagine having trusted anyone else with the task of immortalizing our special day. From our first conversation, Lawrence put us at complete ease & it became apparent that not only was he extremely knowledgable about his profession, but he also possessed a passion & drive to capture exactly what we wanted. Together, we were able to focus on how we envisioned our photos portraying the vibe of our wedding. To our pleasure, Lawrence explained that he preferred to stay in the moment while shooting, welcoming every opportunity, planned or unplanned. His unique style & creativity ensured a very organic flow throughout our shots. On our wedding day, Lawrence & crew arrived not only ready to do the job, but also willing to assist in any way possible. Lawrence's advice & quick-thinking remedies to last minute hiccups proved he was able to go above & beyond to make everything go as desired. His added expertise from incorporating personal touches into our photos all the way to key playlist selections, was an absolute godsend. While it rained on & off throughout our reception, we believe our photo shoot in the shower yielded some of the most natural & beautiful photographs of the night. It was during the unexpected & sometimes feared occurrences, that Lawrence's talent & artistry truly thrived. Our favorite part was noticing his keen attention to detail while providing guidance on how to avoid an overly posed shot. Our wedding party, family & friends, were all well represented in Meadowlark Still's work. They had such nice things to say about the helpfulness & calmness with which our photographers operated. Our amazing experience with Lawrence & team was fully reflected in the gorgeously shot & edited photos we received. We cannot thank Meadowlark Stills enough for providing such a fantastic service & for preserving all of the joy & beauty surrounding us on our most magical day! -Kayla & Kyle HunsickerSent on 08/02/2017

Lawrence is easy to work with and will guide you through the whole process. We were immediately comfortable with him and had fun getting our photos taken. I'm so grateful we have these beautiful photos to look back on forever! Much love to Lawrence

Lawrence is the best!
Having little more to back my assessment up with than a keen interest in the medium, with Lawrence's photography I gotta say the proof of the quality is right there in the pictures. But what makes his wedding photography so great is the natural ease he puts both you as the stress-and-emotion burdened couple of the day and your family and guests throughout the wedding. With absolute minimal staging (we of course got some lovely first look and family portraits done), Lawrence has an eye for capturing genuine moments from the day that reflect your memory of it - warm, beautiful and joyous. Meadowlark Stills was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding and I couldn't recommend Lawrence enough!
