Best Day EverReviewed on 10/22/2014 andrea h
Lauren and Aubrey worked so hard to make our wedding day fabulous. We felt so comfortable after our engagement session with Lauren because she is the perfect mix of directive, sensitive, and hilarious. She made us feel confident and our pictures show it! We were free to be ourselves and have so much fun on our wedding day with Lauren and Aubrey. They were open to all of our ideas and had so many amazing ones of their own. Lauren is very organized and I didn't have to worry that they would miss any special moments. We knew they were good, but were still blown away when we got our edited photos back. Guests described our wedding as "sweet" and that's exactly what Lauren and Aubrey captured. I cannot stop looking at our photos and am beyond thrilled with the service and quality we received. I would recommend Lauren Rae Photography to anyone and am honored to say that not only did we get to spend two fun filled days capturing our love on film with Lauren and Aubrey, but we also came away from this with two friendships. We felt more like family than clients. Thanks so much Lauren and Aubrey!!
Lauren is wonderful!Reviewed on 10/21/2014 Lauren S
As the daughter of a photographer, I had high expectations for my wedding photographer! I wanted amazing photos at a reasonable price and found exactly that with Lauren Hatch of Lauren Rae Photography. Lauren is so warm and friendly and my husband and I immediately connected with her when we first met. She shot our engagement photos and we loved every single one! Lauren is wonderful about capturing the emotion of the day in every picture. She and her second shooter had our bridal party laughing and comfortable all day long. We received our pictures quickly and LOVE them. I cannot recommend Lauren enough for your photography needs!!!
I knew I wanted Lauren to be our photographer the moment that I met her. She is the best. Period! She made us feel comfortable from the very first photo and throughout the entire wedding. I am so glad I went with my gut and chose Lauren Rae! She and Chelsea were SO fun to have at our wedding, and I am completely obsessed with all of the photos. They captured everything we wanted and then some. Rest assured, you are in excellent hands with Lauren Rae and her team!!
I don't really have worlds to describe how amazing Lauren and her team were for both my wedding and engagement. But I can say this, she traveled to Asheville to follow my girlfriend and I around the Biltmore to capture my proposal without my girlfriends knowledge. She captured it perfectly so she was the obvious choice for our wedding which she also captured perfectly. She is a delight to work with and isn't timid about getting the perfect shot. I've recommended her to all of my friends!
Absolutely none of the drama that one hears about concerning wedding photography. A very professional team that took amazing photos while not being a focal point during the event. Lauren was able to take care of any concerns on the spot or during pre and post wedding contact. My beautiful bride is looking for reasons to hire Lauren once again. Babies?!?!
Five stars from beginning to end. Lauren photographed our wedding this summer. She was courteous and professional throughout the process. Her ideas, vision, and talent are second to none. I would always recommend her to anyone who is choosing a wedding photographer, or even for engagement photos, family portraits, anything. Thank you Lauren!
Lauren and her team have such an amazing talent for capturing great 'moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day or any important day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to be documented. Lauren's ability not to miss a moment is truly incredible, and her energy and passion comes across in the photos they capture. She is able to blend in so well that your guests and you and your bride or groom literally will not realise they’re being photographed. We could not recommend Lauren Rae more! They are so fly they never land!
Lauren did such a fabulous job in all of the photos taken for our daughter's wedding day! She truly captures the moment of their love! Lauren is friendly, professional, and affordable!This is obviously Lauren's passion in life and her photos demonstrate that. I would highly recommend everyone contact Lauren Rae Photography for a consultation and you'll feel the same way! THANK YOU LAUREN!
Lauren photographed our wedding this summer as well as took our engagement photos and we loved her work! And Lauren herself was very professional throughout. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of her capturing our amazing memories!
What an amazing experience we had with Lauren Rae Photography!!! From day one I knew that Lauren and team was someone that I wanted to have be apart of our special day, all the moments leading up to that and many many more occasions throughout the rest of our life! Lauren is the perfect combination of a photography genius and professional all while having the best time ever you could ask for! I could not have imagined our special day without her! She made sure that we got exactly what we wanted while adding in some of the most amazing shots of her own! Her and her team make sure that you and your significant other get the very best version of you in your pictures! We can't wait to work with Lauren for many many more years!!!
Lauren is AMAZING. We literallty could not have chosen a better lady to document our day. She and her staff are so talented and wonderful to work with.
Lauren, was so wonderful to work with. My fiancé Tom and I had a great time during our engagement photo shoot! She made us feel relaxed and gave us just enough direction to get the perfect mix of posed and spontaneous pictures. Our pictures turned out better than we ever could have imagined, and she turned them around in less than a week from our session. Thanks again to Lauren; we definitely hope to have her shoot a session for us again in the future!
AmazingReviewed on 11/03/2015 Heather E
Lauren and her team did an amazing job as our wedding photographer. From our first meeting all the way through the delivery of images, they went above and beyond. I could not have asked for a better photographers to capture our engagement photos and wedding day. They made us feel overly comfortable and allowed us to enjoy the day, as well as helped make sure we had all the images we were looking for to capture everything!
Lauren Rae photography shot our wedding and they are images I cherish! She captured our special day so wonderfully and took the time to ask me what specific images I wanted to have. So sweet, genuine, and a joy to work with!
I just don't know where to start but Lauren is amazing!!! From our engagement shoot to the last shot at our wedding!! Lauren shot my sister's wedding two years ago, and we loved her. When I got engaged last year there were few things I knew I wanted for my wedding, but I knew I had to have her as my photographer. She makes you feel so special, and for someone like me who hasn't had any photography sessions as an adult she made me feel so at ease. On my wedding day Lauren and her assistance Chelsea did an amazing job. She truly feels like family to us, and she treats is the same way. I cannot say enough nice things about her, her professionalism and her work. It speaks for itself. She's the best!!
Lauren, Aubrey, and their team are amazing. My husband and I got married April 2014 and Lauren shot our big day. From the planning to the actual big day everything was amazing. Lauren is so friendly, funny and really listens to what you would like when it comes to your photos. Our pictures came out amazing and I have passed along her information to so many friends!! We welcomed a new baby boy in October 2016 and I knew who I was going to contact for his newborn photos- Lauren of course!! There are no words for her work and the incredible touch she has!! I know I will be using Lauren for shoots in the future!! Go with Lauren and her team--you won't be sorry!!
Photographed our Wedding on the LakeReviewed on 10/28/2015 Savanna S
Thank you so much Lauren Rae Hatch, (Lauren Rae Photography) and her team for doing such an amazing job with our wedding photos. They captured our wedding day beautifully and we are so grateful. -My husband and I couldn't be happier!! Youguys stepped in and did even more than just photography. Went above and beyond to help support, wrangle everyone together for photos and even helped assist when the planner managed to disappear during cake cutting! :/ We seriously couldn't have done it without you. Every detail from getting ready, to the ceremony, to every detail about the reception was captured. It is awesome to be able to look back and remember every element about our wedding. We will be forever grateful to have those memories to look back at. THANK YOU!!
Lauren is the best!Reviewed on 10/27/2015
I cannot recommend Lauren enough. She was a dream to work with - handled our wedding day, both the joys and the stresses, with much grace. Was so organized and had a great rapport with my daughter and son in law. And the photos... well, we are still viewing them over and over! There are just too many good ones! She truly captured our special day and gave us memories to keep for a lifetime.
Amazing photographer!!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Samantha C
I don't know where to start!! Lauren is absolutely the best. She was a referral from one of my really good friends who had her photograph her engagement/ wedding. She is even doing my sisters wedding in January! I have done engagement, boudoir, and wedding photos with her and they are absolutely amazing. She is always available if you have questions and really wants you to enjoy the process of your engagement and wedding photos. Her style and expertise of her photos is one of a kind. Her photographs really capture the emotions of each setting. Plus, her sweet and easy going personality makes her so wonderful to work with! I can't thank her enough for everything she did!!

A groom's point of viewReviewed on 9/15/2014
Lauren was great to work with. I thought taking a bunch of posed photos with my then fiance would be awkward and forced, but she used her Southern charm to make us feel relaxed in front of the camera. I'm really happy with how the photos turned out and have recommended her to several friends.
Lauren was awesome!Reviewed on 9/10/2014 Jess S
I could not have picked a better wedding photographer to capture all of our special moments on our wedding day. She did a phenomenal job and we absolutely love our pictures. Not only was her work flawless, but she was so fun to work with.
Perfect!Reviewed on 9/10/2014
Lauren Rae Photography made our wedding day so special! I did not worry about a thing with them taking my pictures! Every picture captured a wonderful moment during our wedding and ceremony!
Fantastic experience.Reviewed on 9/10/2014
Lauren was absolutely fabulous from start to finish! We got married in February and she shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos. First off, her customer service was amazing. She kept fantastic track of our requests, communicated well and was generally just extremely pleasant. This was huge in reducing my stress, believe me. We looked at a lot of other photographers, and in my opinion Lauren had the best value. While her starting package price was slightly higher than some others we looked at, she offered unlimited edited photos and unlimited hours of shooting day-of, plus an engagement shoot! She stayed for our engagement shoot far longer than average and the photos that resulted from it were truly personal and captured us well. Considering I didn't even want an engagement shoot initially, I was really surprised by how much I ended up loving it. Additionally, her indoor/low-light photos are awesome. We knew we weren't going to have great lighting at our reception, so this was a major factor in us picking her as well. Her indoor photos were the best I saw, period. The day of the wedding, Lauren and her assistant were helpful and kept a perfect balance of actively making sure to do an awesome job and staying low-key. We barely even noticed they were there during the ceremony, but we came out with dozens of gorgeous photos from all sorts of angles! She was really creative in using the environment of our church, as well. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased!
