Michelle Lauren Photography is Spectacular!
Michelle and her crew photographed our engagement photoshoot as well as our two day wedding event. I am very light skinned and my husband is very dark and getting a photo of us together can be challenging. Every single photo we received from Michelle was amazing! She was organized and noticed the little things (applying chapstick when my lips were dry, removing a hair tie from my bridesmaids wrist, etc.). We couldn't have been more happy with our choice and highly recommend her services. We were so impressed we continue to use her for our business and will continue to seek her out for future photos.Sent on 01/07/2020

Michelle Lauren was excellent
Michelle was recommended to us by the hotel staff, and I’m very pleased that we were able to book her last minute. She was amazingly good at putting everyone at ease and getting them to have genuine smiles. What was most incredible was that she managed to get many amazing shots of our toddler son, who is at a tough age following direction for a perfect shot. She was patient and made it playful for him and he was engaged. The images are beautiful. We can’t wait for the next shoot with her when we visit Santa Barbara again.Sent on 12/16/2019

Michelle Lauren Photography is the best! I've worked with Michelle on weddings, as a wedding planner, in the past and have always enjoyed the experience! Recently, we trusted her with our family photos and she captured the whole family perfectly. My 6 year old is very talkative and wanted to direct a good portion of the photo shoot. Michelle handled it all with style and grace and was never annoyed or put off. In fact, she welcomed his suggestions and kept him engaged and involved in the process. As a planner and a mom, she gets 5 starts. Thanks Michelle for capture our most amazing moments. MelissaSent on 12/30/2019
