The BEST decision you can make
The photos speak for themselves. But what you won't see is how kind, calming, and professional Bonnie & Lauren are. We worked with Bonnie specifically for our wedding and I cannot express how amazing it was to know she was with us, capturing the most special weekend of our lives. Bonnie keeps calm through all of the chaos and will make you feel so at ease. We are so incredibly grateful to have beautiful photos that capture all of the special people in our lives. B&L are a 10 out of 10. Best decision you can make.Sent on 11/06/2019

We feel so fortunate to have chosen to work with Bonnie and Lauren for our wedding—it was easily one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process! They are brilliant artists and truly passionate and fun people, and that comes across so clearly in their approach to photography. We knew we wanted photographers who would be able to capture all the emotional power, joy, and wonder of our wedding day, pull for genuine and naturalistic emotions from us (admittedly camera-shy people by nature) and our guests, and create a lasting memory of the day that we and our loved ones can enjoy for many years to come. Their philosophy of capturing “moments over details” fit so easily into our vision, and so we feel so lucky that we get to re-experience all of the planned and unplanned special moments from the day form their eyes and lenses!
The duo were so helpful in planning the day with us, were extremely timely and communicative throughout the planning process, both over video and email. On the day of the wedding, they gelled very easily with our guests. They were remarkably unobtrusive (almost invisible!), and allowed us to fully enjoy our day. Of course, the photos turned out more breathtaking than we could have imagined, and also arrived in a super timely manner. As an additional note, we chose to have both Bonnie and Lauren shoot with us, and had worked with Lauren to shoot our engagement photos. We requested that they take some shots on B&W film, and they are some of our favorites from the day.
In short, we truly can’t recommend them enough, and are so glad to have had these two special people be a part of our wedding day and the beautiful memories and mementos we’ll have to remember it by.Sent on 01/05/2020
Bonnie & Lauren's reply:Kristian, wow! Thank you for taking the time to write us such a beautiful review. We loved being there and working with you and we're so pleased it was a positive experience for you and your guests as well as during your engagement and planning. We'd be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you again. Thank you again! -Lauren

Worth Every Penny
Hiring Bonnie was the BEST decision we made for our September wedding. During our first phone call (before we even hired B&L), Bonnie created a timeline, knew sunset times for the perfect lighting, and gave us the best donut suggestions. She is the perfect combination of professionalism and FUN. She made the planning process a breeze, and was easy to reach via email. Bonnie sent an preview gallery a week or so after our wedding (a wonderful surprise), and our final photos on the early end of the expected timeline!
The photos are absolutely stunning. It’s a beautiful blend of classic wedding shots and these incredible candid moments. I have never seen wedding photos like this before. Bonnie and Julie captured some many wonderful and quirky moments that we would have missed otherwise. We truly love each and every one of the photos! They went out of their way to make us, and our guests, feel so comfortable. I’m not sure how they managed to capture ALL of the details and special moments.
Bonnie & Lauren are worth every single penny. I can’t wait to work with them AGAIN.Sent on 11/15/2019

Beautiful Wedding Photos!
My wife and I had a great experience working with Bonnie and Lauren for our wedding in Austin this spring. The photos look are stunning, and we already have a couple dozen framed and hanging in our house. Highly recommended!Sent on 04/29/2019

Expertise, Style, and Grace
These are absolutely beautiful pictures! Thank you so much for capturing the day with such style, clarity, mood, your great lens, and for being so kind. We have enjoyed looking at these so much, and laughing our heads off at everyone's cry face in the bridal party. HAHA! You not only captured the classic moments that we wanted from a wedding photographer, but also some really great candid photos, and I love the mix of color and black and white. They really tell the story of our day. You were so very lovely to work with, so thank you again!!!! We will treasure these for as long as we live!!!!!Sent on 12/23/2018

A must-have for your wedding!!
Having our wedding photography done by Bonnie was one of the best choices we made and we would choose her again and again, every time. It was important to me to choose very carefully when hiring a photographer because their work is how you will look back on your day. I spoke with lots of different vendors, and Bonnie & Lauren were the best when it came down to quality & price, hands down. Bonnie was so easy to get in touch with prior to the big day and responsive to my emails. On the day of, her and Sarah were punctual, calm, and knew exactly what to do in order to make magic happen. They captured all of the best moments. Every picture was beautiful, intentional, and interesting, unlike some other wedding photos I've seen where nothing is happening or it's unflattering of the people in it. We received so many compliments on our photos, it was undeniable that they were fantastic, thanks to Bonnie & Sarah. They were as nice as can be too and such a pleasure to work with. The photos were delivered to us within the timeframe promised, and we received our USB in a beautiful wooden box with a handwritten note. Any professional who takes the time to put special touches on their work and your experience with them is invaluable. Highly highly highly recommend!!Sent on 02/15/2019

Superlative photographers - thoughtful, kind, professional
Highly, highly recommend Lauren. Our wedding photos are crisp, face details are great, and she delivered a very complete set - we like *all* the photos, and there are many to pick from to print of the two of us, our families, and the guests. It's like having an elegant family member who understands how to frame all the important moments. I really appreciated having unobtrusive photographers who managed to be everywhere and were delightful to have as part of the event.Sent on 11/26/2018

Bonnie and Lauren are great photographers. I work as a cinematographer professionally, so I was very picky with who I hired to photograph my wedding. I was looking for a specific style, someone who can capture the candid moments in a unique and artful way. I did not want the typical run of the mill wedding photos. I first met them at my friend's wedding where I was the best man. I could see that they were very easy and fun to work with and I just loved the final product of photos. There was a great sense of composition, shallow depth of field and they captured all the moments that you would expect and not expect. Fast forward a year later and I hired Lauren to photograph my wedding in August 2018. My wife and I got married in Detroit and I was very surprised by how reasonable here fee was to travel and stay there. The whole experience with her was fantastic. She was super easy to work with and open to my suggestions. We got married in an old factory and I wanted her to make use of the textured walls and architecture - and she really did in such a beautiful way! I am so happy with all of our final photos. She captured all the moments so well. It was just such a pleasure to work with here and I will recommend here to everyone!Sent on 01/10/2019

So nice we booked them twice! We were looking for a photographer for our small New York City Hall event and a large Houston wedding. We were so lucky to find Bonnie and Lauren. We loved their portfolio and photography style, and were so happy they were available for both events. Bonnie was accommodating in planning process (we were all living in separate locations) and responsive to emails. On the wedding day, Bonnie and Lauren made us feel so comfortable and natural. They were fun to work with, and gave us a chance to show off our silly side! We recently received our full collection and the pictures ended up being absolutely phenomenal. We can’t recommend B&L enough! Thank you!Sent on 08/14/2018

We first met Bonnie at an open house at Loot Vintage Rentals in Austin, TX. She had samples of her work on display, and as we flipped through them we were impressed! The photos are of excellent quality and have a intimate, personal feel to them. They are some of the purest, most natural wedding photos and with a great mix of classic and unique composition. After reviewing our options we decided to book Bonnie for our wedding. One of the deciding factors was that as part of the package we would be receiving custom magazines of the photos which could be given as gifts to our parents. We found these magazines to be a great alternative to a hefty photo album. A couple of weeks before the wedding, we received the news that not only would Bonnie be our photographer, but Lauren would be joining her as our second shooter as well!
Bonnie and Lauren took every measure to make us feel comfortable and to capture the special moments. There was a great balance between posed and candid shots and they captured so many wonderful moments that we might have otherwise missed. Bonnie and Lauren worked so well as a team, and collaborated very well with our videographers from Moonlit Weddings. The best way to describe their process is efficient, professional, and fun! We received our full photo set and all of the photos turned out absolutely gorgeous. They got some stunning candid photos of friends and family along with silly photos and gorgeous portraits. Booking Bonnie and Lauren was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and we would definitely love to work with them again in the future if the opportunity arises!Sent on 06/26/2018

We cannot rave about Bonnie & Lauren enough! Their photography is absolutely flawless and they tell the story of the day, capturing so much detail that you can relive it over and over. One thing everyone told me when planning our wedding was to not skimp on photography - and that was the best advice! We had Bonnie shoot our engagements and got to know each other, and we fell in love with both her and the photos! And we were blown away even further by our wedding photography. We lucked out by having both Bonnie and Lauren photographing the entire day, and not only did they do gorgeous work, but they made sure everyone had a blast while doing it! Their creative, quirky, fun-loving personalities help everyone to relax, allowing them to capture amazing, candid moments. We are in absolute awe of the final results - the photos are more than we could have dreamed. THANK YOU to Bonnie & Lauren! If you are searching for amazing photography, these gals are worth their weight in gold.Sent on 05/13/2018

Bonnie and Lauren did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding at Prospect House in Dripping Springs, Texas this January. The final photos were incredible, and we've received rave reviews on them. They did an especially fantastic job at capturing candid emotion on our faces as well as our guests. The planning, day of, and post-event communication has been easy as well. Most of all though, we're thrilled with the quality of the work, which is why we booked them in the first place. Highly recommended.Sent on 05/20/2018

I honestly do not normally give 5 stars to people but Bonnie and Lauren are truly exceptional. Everyone at the wedding were asking for their contact info and commenting on how they have never seen such hard working photographers ever. I also especially like the respect these two girls have on their assistant photographer. Most photographers I chatted with never praised their assistant's work in fear of stealing business, but not from Bonnie and Lauren.Sent on 04/16/2018
I love each and every single picture. Stress free engagement and the best decision I made! Thank you lovely ladies.
Lauren · Married on 05/06/2017
This review is LONG overdue. Bonnie and Lauren photographed my May wedding... there are not enough words in this box to explain how FANTASTIC these ladies are at their profession. B&L are true professionals; they bring an air of sophistication and make even the camera shy feel comfortable in front of their lense.Sent on 09/19/2017
Let me preface this by saying my Husband and I had chosen a different photographer (that will rename nameless) and he was NOT good. So much so that we broke our contract with him. Needless to say, I was a stressed bride with no photographer for my big day.
Luckily, my fabulous wedding planner (Joan Glenn; 6 Degrees of Celebration) connected me with the amazing Bonnie. Bonnie knew our prior experience and offered to FaceTime with us to introduce herself, get to know us better and explain her creative process before we made a decision.
I had numerous guests after my wedding comment on how comfortable and fabulous these ladies made them feel - not to mention the photos we received back were breathtaking.
THANK YOU Bonnie and Lauren for allowing me to relive this day through all of your captured moments. Xx

Bonnie and Lauren shot our wedding in Washington DC and we feel so lucky that they were a part of our day. We both felt so comfortable with them from the get-go and at no point did we feel as though they were intruding into our space. They moved efficiently through family shots (which involved 6 little kids!) but nothing felt rushed. The variety of posed/portrait shots that they captured was excellent and we were very impressed with the action shots from the party. One of our favorite aspects was the magazine that we got at the end, which feels both classic and modern and totally approachable (not a $$$ album that will sit on a shelf because people are too afraid to touch it!). Picking a photographer was one of the toughest decisions of wedding planning and we are thrilled that we had Bonnie & Lauren with us.Sent on 07/14/2017

I spent hours searching for my perfect photographer; I knew I wanted someone with a unique yet timeless style. A lot of wedding photography right now is very light and white heavy, and its beautiful, but I wanted something with a slightly different look. I love that Bonnie & Lauren aren't afraid of shadows and true blacks to give their images grit and dimension. It's really refreshing when hunting through scores of photographers whose portfolios all kind of blend together. Bonnie & Lauren really stand out with their classic, beautiful style.Sent on 06/12/2017
When it came to communication, Bonnie was excellent. From our initial phone call, I felt that she understood what I was looking for. She made me feel at ease, and I felt like I was talking to a friend. When we had our 1-week-to-go chat, I was really stressed out about our budget. I had booked 8 hours with B&L about 9 months before the wedding, but realized when we talked that I wanted her to be there for 2-ish more hours than originally booked. This was going to be a decent chunk of (extra) change that I hadn't budgeted for, and Bonnie could tell that I was freaking out. She was genuinely concerned about making sure I was satisfied, and worked with me to customize my original package to meet my needs (reducing down to one photographer for the majority of the day in order to extend the hours without adding to my price). I really appreciated her flexibility, just a week before the wedding, too!
On our wedding day, Bonnie was inconspicuous. Looking at our images now, I have no idea how she caught so much because I barely saw her! We treasure our photos from B&L, and know that B&L were worth EVERY PENNY!!
Rachel · Married on 10/22/2016
We couldn't have been happier with Bonnie and Lauren. They went above and beyond making our engagement photos easy (both of us were a little nervous having never done this before), and capturing the joy of our wedding weekend. They were both extremely easy to work with and so accommodating. Not only that, but their photos captured the laid back, elegant vibe that we were going for. They shot in very difficult circumstances: the church had strict rules about where photographers were allowed, and on our first-look photos were outside (in the wind and rain) on the grounds of the estate where the rehearsal dinner was held. Yet those photos are not only my favorite from the 3-day shoot, but also some of my favorite memories from the weekend. I would hire Bonnie and Lauren again in a second!!Sent on 04/25/2017
Jillian · Married on 09/17/2016
Lauren photographed our wedding in September in Vermont and was an absolute pleasure to work with! She comes without her own agenda and really picks up on beautiful, candid moments as a result. This all came through in her initial wedding picture previews. She was also very flexible - we were running a bit late for our rehearsal dinner pictures and she handled that very professionally. She even stayed a bit later to make up for that. In addition to being very talented and professional, she is so passionate about her work. The fun she was having taking pictures during all our wedding events contributed to a great wedding atmosphere. She fit right into our special event!Sent on 10/23/2016

My husband and I cried when we first saw the previews. Bonnie & Lauren don't just take pictures. They capture the most pure, amazing moments. Looking at our photo gallery allows us to relive the wedding day. Bonnie & Lauren are so creative and have such an eye for snapping all the great little moments happening around them. They work so well as a team covering all angles and making sure no aspect of the wedding is missed.Sent on 07/16/2016
Bonnie & Lauren brought so much fun and energy to our event. We loved having them there, and working with them was the best experience.

Lauren and Bonnie are fabulous. The photos they took of my daughters wedding are truly beautiful and artistic. Not just the same old photos one sees over and over again. They captured the day in such a unique and special way. I am so happy we discovered L & B because I can't imagine a better way to remember this lovely, bucolic and elegant day.Sent on 04/20/2016

Lauren photographed our retro-themed wedding in October 2015 at the Foundry in Long Island City, and we couldn't be happier with her work. She's an extremely talented photographer and an absolute pleasure to work with. We knew that we wanted mostly candid photos, and after reviewing B&L's site, fell in love with their work. We opted for their one of us package with both digital and analogue photography. On the day of, Lauren made us feel at ease. Most of the time we didn't even notice she was there. She captured our special day with style and creativity. Several days after the wedding Lauren sent us a gallery of about 30 previews, which was awesome to have so soon after the event. She even sent us our complete collection of photos early so we could use them as Christmas gifts. We can't recommend them highly enough!Sent on 12/04/2015

She was very professional but also super friendly. She knows what she's doing and has the confidence to capture the moments well, but also is flexible if you have things that you want her to do. I would definitely recommend Bonnie and Lauren to anyone who wants a great photographer.
Hillary · Married on 06/06/2015
I am a Manhattan-based event planner who works with many of the most sought-after photographers, so I knew exactly what I wanted for my own wedding. Bonnie & Lauren came recommended from another photographer, and after a few emails and our first call with Lauren, we knew she was the right fit for our intimate NYC wedding. We didn’t want to spend too much time on formal shots and cared more about capturing the moments, having unique photos and remembering the details - Lauren and Mark delivered just that. They scouted nearby locations and found unconventional places for photos that fit our personalities and the vibe of the wedding, including the window of a coffee shop and a stairwell with hot pink lighting. They even found a perfect location where we had just the lights from the Empire State Building in the background (our friends referred to the photos as “epic”).Sent on 09/07/2015
If you’re looking for photos with personality and to feel the emotion and excitement from the day, I highly recommend Bonnie & Lauren.

Bonnie photographed our wedding out in Westlake Hills last April. Bonnie captured the magic of our day in the most fundamental way. Our photographs are so beautiful....we are moved each time we look at them. Bonnie knew exactly how and when to photograph us for the best light, and helped us corral all the stagglers together when needed. Her professionalism and experience were a huge support to us that day. Bonnie knows weddings. I'm pretty sure she even coached us during the cake cutting.Sent on 02/12/2016
Bonnie is a super skilled photographer, with an incredible artistic eye. Our photos are alive with color and a unique sense of magic. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bonnie. We love you.

Bonnie Burke from Bonnie & Lauren was our photographer for our April 25th, 2015 wedding at the Umlauf Sculpture Gardens in Austin, TX. I cannot recommend Bonnie & Lauren enough. B&L are obviously amazingly talented photographers, just look at their portfolio. They are true artists. What I think makes them really unique is that above and beyond taking beautiful photographs, Bonnie & Lauren are great businesswomen and incredibly professional. They were so responsive to every email and call during the planning process. They even sent us a Christmas card to tell us how excited they were for our big day! They have a lot of experience so they know how get the shots they need amidst the chaos. Bonnie pulled us at just the right time to get beautiful shots during the golden hour. She also efficiently got family photos in of my big family including wriggly babies. Additionally, B&L were so quick to turn around our full collection (I've heard a lot of horror stories of waiting forever to get pictures). A few days after the wedding, they sent us about 15-20 amazing preview shots for us to enjoy, and then told us a specific date about 8 weeks out as to when we could expect our full collection. True to their word, we got the link to our collection that day. A few days later, we received an adorable package with our photos on a thumb drive, some candy, and a handwritten note. From the first email to receiving our collection, we had a wonderful experience with Bonnie & Lauren!Sent on 08/19/2015
