“We were referred to Lauren through a friend of ours who lives in New York. When we found out that she is bi-coastal and would travel to Southern California for our wedding we were THRILLED! Lauren has a ton of amazing qualities that you would want in a wedding photographer but a few of my favorite are… 1. She is SUPER responsive and very quick to reply to any and all the questions we had (and trust me, there were a lot) about pricing, packages, day of, engagement pictures, lighting, etc. She got back to us right away with our initial inquiry and we immediately set up a call to get to know each other. 2. She listens to exactly what your wedding vision is but will also let you know if something you want isn’t going to look right or work with the venue, time of day, etc. I’m glad I didn’t have to learn the difference between a photographer and a wedding photographer the hard way, as many people do. She is a seasoned PRO. 3. She’s very flexible and willing to accommodate last minute additions, changes and subtractions. For instance… we decided we wanted her to swing by the rehearsal dinner for a couple hours and she was, of course, quick to respond that she would happily be there to capture all the magic moments. 4. She is so stealth when she’s working you literally won’t notice her. When we got our full gallery back (which by the way, only took TWO WEEKS) we not only had phenomenal photos, but we also had so many guests say that they didn’t even see her. PLUS, she’s not in any of the pictures that guests were taking throughout the night. AND that is including her second shooter. I’m convinced she’s a ninja. 5. She loves little dogs and made sure to capture all the sweet shots we wanted with our fur baby. Bottom line, Lauren is a gem and does A+ quality work with incredible customer service. You will not be disappointed!”
