Lauren Exceeded Our Expectations!
My husband and I decided to go with Lauren as our wedding photographer because of her personality and style of photos. When we met her she was excited to meet us and was easy to talk to. She continued to impress us through our whole experience working with her, and she exceeded our expectations. Her goofy personality made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and she was able to capture genuine smiles and laughs. She is also quick to respond to emails and very helpful with other aspects of wedding planning, such as creating a timeline for the day! I would recommend Lauren to all of our family, friends, and beyond!Sent on 11/05/2018

Lauren did an amazing job! She was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. She was very organized and I appreciated her help planning out the wedding day timeline - it took a lot of stress off my hands! Because our reception was on a boat, we opted for the half day package which we felt was good value. She took full advantage of the limited time and got many good portraits, group photos, and detail shots before the boat departed. Pictures are absolutely beautiful. She encourages goofiness which gets some fun shots! She also did well with more formal family photos inside the church. Both families commented to me afterward on how pleasant & professional she was. The first few photos were available within 48 hours and everything else in under two weeks! I would definitely recommend Lauren to any Minnesota bride looking for a good photographer.Sent on 11/05/2018

Lauren was absolutely amazing. She was reliable, kind, efficient, and very professional! Me and my husband are pretty camera shy and awkward, but she made us feel so comfortable during the engagement shoot and our wedding pictures. Thank You Lauren for being that we wanted and more.

Lauren is TOP NOTCH! How in the world can I put into words how talented, personable, friendly, fun, professional, and sweet Lauren is? My now husband and I instantly became friends with Lauren the day we met and from that point on, I knew we had struck gold in finding the ultimate wedding photographer. She had our best interests in mind the entire time. She ALWAYS responded in a timely manner. The quality of the photos were beyond anything we could have imagined! We can't wait to work with her again as she photographs our friends' wedding in September! We could never thank Lauren enough for documenting our wedding day so authentically and so perfectly!

Lauren is a fantastic photographer. She is friendly, fun, and professional, and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She gets everyone laughing by asking you to do and say funny things. She came up with a detailed timeline for our whole wedding day which was very helpful for planning as we didn’t have a wedding planner. She also asked us for a list of pictures we wanted in advance to ensure that we wouldn’t forget anything on the day of. We were extremely pleased with the quality and quantity of the pictures we received, and she got them back to us very quickly (less than two weeks later!). We have received many compliments on our photos. We would definitely recommend Lauren to our friends and family!

My husband and I don't have enough good things to say about Lauren! She was a complete joy to work with - both for our engagement photos and on our wedding day! She is punctual, professional, and has a great skill for making people for comfortable in front of the camera! Not only was she great on the day of our wedding, but she was so helpful in setting the schedule for the day! She offered great advice and helpful hints to ensure the day would go smoothly. Everyone who interacted with Lauren on our wedding day had nothing but positive things to say about her! We are so happy to have selected Lauren as our photographer! It was one of the greatest decisions we made for our wedding! We got our engagement photos back so quickly after our session with her! Two days after our wedding, we woke up to an email from Lauren with 12 sneak preview photos from the wedding day. It was such a nice surprise and we are thankful to have these photos to hold us over until we get the rest! If you're considering selecting Lauren as your wedding photographer, do it!

From the first contact email to receiving our photos, Lauren was fantastic! My husband and I looked for months to find the perfect photographer and after interviewing multiple Photographers we felt Lauren was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy and might I say the photographs from our wedding are absolutely amazing!!!! I didn't worry about how I looked or the timeline of where I needed to be. Lauren took control and helped me relax and really enjoy our day all while capturing our day so beautifully. She was pivotal in making our day perfect. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding. I would recommend Lauren every time! Thank you Lauren for our wonderful photos that will hold this day in our memories forever.
Emily · Married on 10/07/2017
I loved my experience with Lauren! We had engagement photos (complementary with wedding package) and wedding day photos with her. It was so nice to have the engagement session to meet her and see her style and also not be so awkward around the camera. She took many, many amazing photos of our wedding day, she was very responsive to what we wanted, she was awesome dealing with our crazy families and friends (and our dog, who was a part of our wedding day), super responsive, and she got our pictures back to us so quickly! Could not recommend her more.
Ashalee · Married on 09/16/2017
Lauren was amazing!! She wasn't pushy and always found a way to get us laughing. She was very flexible with where we wanted to take our wedding photos and was willing to drive there. I definitely recommend her!
Kayla · Married on 09/12/2017
The time spent with Lauren was amazing!! She was extremely helpful with picking a location, time of day, and outfit options. During the shoot Lauren made me feel comfortable and even made me laugh while catching all the candid photos from these laughs! She was very flexible with the day and time of the shoot and her prices are phenomenal for the packages they include. We loved the edits she used because they're simple, yet gorgeous! I would recommend Lauren to anyone without hesitation, seriously check her out!
Teresa · Married on 07/29/2017
We are SO HAPPY that we chose Lauren as our wedding photographer! She did an amazing job and was so easy to work with. She responded to all of my messages very quickly and really cared to get to know more about us to better capture our relationship in her photos. She easily adapted to timeline and other changes that we made close to the day. She even sent us our pictures early - and they look awesome!
Molly · Married on 07/15/2017
Lauren's done my wedding, but has also done our engagement photos, as well as my own head shots, my band's photos, and other photos of my craft wares. I've used her as a photographer for a little under a decade, and she's been so flexible, fun to work with, and the photos always turn out great! I'd recommend her for any occasion. We love Lauren!
Nou · Married on 06/25/2017
We had Lauren as our wedding photographer on June 30th 2017 down at Schaars bluff in Hastings MN. Overall she did an AMAZING job. All of the photos turned out BEAUTIFUL! She's really easy to work with and you can tell by her pictures that she's very passionate about her job. We love Lauren and we will definitely be calling her back for more photos in the future!
Samantha · Married on 03/25/2017
Lauren has been a class act throughout the entire process. She is warm, personable and takes her photography very seriously. I was recommended to Lauren Baker Photography by another photographer who was booked for our original wedding date, and I couldn't be more grateful!
She is an excellent photographer, responds promptly to all emails and my stupid questions, and was beyond flexible throughout the whole process. We threw our original big wedding plans (and date) out the window, and she was SO QUICK to offer us other dates where we could still use her for a smaller wedding. It took so much of the stress off for us to know she could be so accommodating.
Lauren was super organized and made the entire process so easy. I was not the most involved or caring bride, so it was helpful to have her suggestions and expertise available to me. Her turnaround on pictures (both for our engagement session and our wedding) was insanely fast. She made us laugh and kept us comfortable and smiling throughout our whole wedding. We just got our wedding photos back and they are so beautiful. You can plainly see how much work and care were put into them.
Seriously, book Lauren for your wedding! She is AMAZING!

We could not be more excited about our wedding photos! Lauren and her assistant did such an amazing job. Lauren is extremely quick, clear, and professional with communication. She is punctual and organized and helped create the itinerary for the big day. She helped keep us on track for the day and captured so many natural moments. Lauren has a very unique artistic eye and captured all of the emotion from the day. We encourage everyone who is looking for a wedding/family photographer to go with LAUREN BAKER PHOTOGRAPHY!!
She also did our engagement photos which we are still in love with as well!
heidi · Married on 07/23/2016
Lauren has such a talented eye. Her photos capture the emotion, energy and spirit of the people and subjects she's photographing. She's professional, kind and generous. We missed so much of the details on our wedding day and Lauren filled in all the gaps and then some. We love the story she was able to convey with her beautiful pictures. What an incredible talent!
Jess · Married on 07/17/2016
Lauren provided engagement photography services for my now husband and I last fall. She was incredibly accommodating, accompanying us to 2 different outdoor sites to help us capture moments in environments that we had spent parts of our relationship in (an apple orchard and downtown Stillwater). She did an amazing job capturing the spirit of who we are as a couple, embracing our silliness to photograph some fun and authentic moments between us. Lauren was also able to help us both feel relaxed in front of the camera with the cues that she gave (something that is not easy to do when we know we are being photographed :) ) and was able to capture some beautiful moments that showed how much love we have for each other. She is extremely organized and professional, and is also creative in the way that she photographs! I would definitely recommend her for your wedding/engagement/family photo needs.
Samuel · Married on 01/02/2016
Lauren was a terrific photographer, and very easy to work with! She was especially supportive and encouraging during shoots on the hottest day of the year for engagement photos, and in the dead of winter on our wedding day. Lauren's prompt turn-around time was appreciated, and her online presence made us feel like family. We highly recommend Lauren!
Hailey · Married on 07/07/2018
Lauren takes charge in a fun way that makes your pictures genuine. My husband is hard to please but the second he met Lauren he was convinced she was the right photographer for our wedding because she was organized, enthusiastic, and professional. Every request we had for Lauren she took on. She was amazing to work with.
Taylor · Married on 06/03/2018
Lauren was honestly fantastic. All of out time spent with her was fun, and all of our pictures were great. We couldn't be happier with the way everything went, and would fully recommend her to anyone who wants a fun, professional photographer that will get you some great photos. As a gay couple, it was important for us to feel comfortable, and Lauren went above and beyond to make sure we felt that and more. She is a great person and a great photographer.
Leigha · Married on 07/09/2016
Lauren did a wonderful job on our engagement photos and wedding photos! Lauren was so responsive and timely via email and answered all my questions with detail and professionalism. Lauren was very receptive to all our requests and was able to control our crazy wedding party during group photos! She is very artistic, which put great character and originality to all of our photos. Lauren is laid back, easy to work with, which in-turn made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera in potentially awkward kissing photos! Overall, Lauren is fabulous to work with and I would highly recommend her as your next photographer!
Beth · Married on 03/03/2017
Lauren was very professional and made sure she was giving us what we wanted. I love that we have all of the pictures!!
