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

The ONLY wedding advice I will ever give anyone is to find the best, best, best photographer. And since you're reading this, you've found her! We found Lauren through Instragram, and I was in a bit of a unique situation--I had no vision for my wedding day when we first spoke. But my husband and I clicked with her instantly, so hiring her was the first and best decision we made during this whole process. We thought we'd get married locally, but then decided we wanted to elope to the desert in Nevada (we brought our parents)--Lauren was so excited to join us! Talk about accommodating :) We had our engagement session in DC (highly recommended if you're not used to being photographed) and we found that Lauren has the perfect balance of kindness, artistry, and directness which is exactly what we needed. When we made it to the desert in April, Lauren was hard at work instantly, taking gorgeous shots of my dress, and small getting-ready moments with my parents. We hopped in the car and drove out to our designated spot in the desert, and even though our ceremony was so, so quick, Lauren captured so many moments that, looking at them all now, it looks like we were out there blissfully enjoying the day for hours. Lauren helped us through the unexpected wind, as we looked cold (since we were), and she got us to relax, and was directing us like rapid fire to catch the sun just right. I can tell she came into this with a vision, and the result was absolutely a dream come true. We sent out wedding announcements with one of the most exciting photos (since we were surprising everyone) and from the day people started seeing Lauren's photos, that is ALL anyone could talk about. We didn't need a theme for our post-elopement party because we framed all our photos and they were the star of the show!Sent on 07/23/2018

Finding and choosing Lauren as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding, by far! We fell in love with her work online but were worried that we weren’t cool enough for her style- seriously! However, as soon as we spoke to her and learned more about her philosophy, we knew it would be a perfect fit! She shot our engagement photos and even though it rained, they came out better than we could have imagined! Lauren instantly makes you feel comfortable and at ease even if you’ve never taken professional photos.Sent on 11/10/2017
On our wedding day, Lauren went above and beyond her duty as our photographer- she was truly a friend! She helped steam my veil in the hotel room while everyone was getting ready and made sure I had wine to calm my nerves! Lauren’s warm personality is perfect for stressed out wedding couples and her artistic talents are unmatched. Not only did our wedding photos come back super quickly, they came back perfectly edited and in a way that told the complete arch of our day flawlessly. I would spend all of my wedding budget over and over again for her work; she is the ultimate professional and I can’t wait until our next life adventure so we can include her in capturing that too!
We are so thankful to have found Lauren as a photographer and a friend and if you’re lucky enough to be able to book her, you will surely be blessed!

Lauren was amazing! She was so easy to work with during the planning phase and extremely instrumental in helping us structure our day to ensure the best photos :)Sent on 10/20/2017
The quality of her work is even more impressive. You will NOT be disappointed.

Lauren was a great choice to shoot my boudoir pictures. She was professional, kept me feeling comfortable, and was incredibly easy to work with. She came on location in Fort Lauderdale to shoot on a Friday, and by MONDAY I had my pictures, which is an incredibly fast turn around. Despite the quick return, my photos were beautifully and authentically edited. In the past, Lauren has taken portraits of my family and my parents were so pleased with the pictures they still talk about them years later. Lauren is a great photographer, and I would highly recommend!Sent on 12/22/2016

Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, focused, creative, organized and unique are all words I would use to describe Lauren. The photos she captured were incredible... less posed and more 'in the moment'. We could not be happier with our photos and will cherish them forever. THANK YOU LAURENSent on 02/12/2017

Lauren is AWESOME! I don't really know where to start to tell how wonderful she is with her amazing talent. We had the pleasure working with Lauren on our engagement session December 2015 and our wedding November 2016. Lauren goes way above to capture all of the special moments of your day. Our pictures came out amazing! I have had so many family and friends call to tell me how wonderful they thoughtSent on 01/15/2017
Lauren was at the wedding and how beautiful her work is.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone. She deserves 10 STAR

Lauren has an eye for capturing raw emotion in every moment. Ours and our guests' personalities shined throughout our wedding photos, and I could not be happier. Her journalistic style provides real moments, beautifully capturing a day in our life rather than a myriad of staged photos. Beyond her talent, she's a joy to work with - she provides a calm, fun presence which makes it easier for us camera-shy individuals to let our guards down even in seemingly anxious moments. Before the event she contacted us to setup a timeline and was accommodating to our special requests. Our photos were delivered quickly and with ease via a digital album and flash drive. We'd hire her again in a heartbeat.Sent on 06/03/2016

Lauren was my wedding photographer and she was AMAZING! I can't stress enough how professional she was, super organized and incredibly talented. My husband and I met with her twice prior to our wedding and we both were amazed by her talent. The first meeting was to get to know each other and because of Lauren's awesome personality we immediately clicked. Our second meeting was closer to our wedding date where we discussed a timeline of events, photos my husband and I wanted, locations, etc. The day of my wedding, Lauren was on time in my hotel room taking pictures all over the room of everyone, my dress, accessories, etc. She went to the church to take more photos and followed onto the reception venue. My guests said that Lauren was amazing and nonstop taking photos of me, my husband, the guests, the whole event! Daniel was onsite as well and he was equally as amazing as Lauren. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lauren Louise.Sent on 11/29/2014
Also, I did my boudoir session with Lauren as a wedding gift to my husband and needless to say we are both in love with the quality of the book and the beauty of the photos. Lauren is amazingly talented.
Do yourself a favor and choose Lauren!!
