If you have the chance to hire Lauren for a shoot, don't hesitate for a second. As someone who hates being photographed but is also an art director, I might be what you'd call a challenging client; not only is Lauren able to bring out the best in even the most camera-shy among... Read More us, but she also comes armed with excellent taste and a friendly, try anything approach that she molds to the needs of her clients, not the other way around. Lauren is a genuine talent, I would have happily paid double her incredibly reasonable rate for the work she does (but the fact that I didn't have to means you better snap her up now!).

Lauren captured our maternity photos and they are absolutely stunning. Having a specific vision in mind for this session, we hired Lauren because of how amazing her photos always are. I knew she'd be able to turn my vision into beautiful photos, and they are. We loved working... Read More with her and how easy going she is. She walked 5 miles with us just to captured these photos! And her turn around time was only a few days. She's one of the best!

Over the past 4 years we have had Lauren photograph our engagement session, our wedding and then our maternity shoot. Words can not describe how amazing she was through everything. Our engagement photos turned out so great we used one of them on our save the dates. On our... Read More special day it was so nice having Lauren there! She got everything done so quickly and beautifully that we didn't have to make any of our guests wait for dinner. It was so amazing knowing that we were getting all of the amazing pictures we wanted and we didn't have to spend 2 hours taking them. Lauren makes you feel comfortable and really knows how to capture your perfect moments. We look forward to having her photograph many other milestones for our family. Even my husband who HATES having his photo taken loves working with her. You can not go wrong hiring Lauren!

Lauren was so great to work with! She was quick with her responses and very thorough with planning for the day. On the day of my wedding she was professional but fun! We were a tough crowd to deal with ( kinda rowdy) and she still managed to be fun with us even as annoying as we... Read More were!! She was quick with getting our photos to us as well! I would definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends!

I love this girl, and you need to book her immediately if you haven't already!!! I want her to be my photographer for everything going forward - showers, babies, family photos, everything! I was nearly at my wits' end looking for a photographer for my wedding before I was... Read More introduced to Lauren. I knew what I wanted, something elegant and editorial, but was struggling to find a photographer who shared my aesthetic and viewpoint. I would get excited with each portfolio that maybe this would be the person I was looking for, but then would stumble upon a photo they shared that just didn't fit with my vision. Finally, after what felt like eons, I was referred to Lauren from a fellow photographer. I fell in love immediately, and crossed my fingers that she would be available for my wedding day. Somebody was definitely looking out for me, because she was! Lauren is sweet, patient, wonderful, fun and has a fantastic eye. We were thrilled to have her as a part of our special day, and I continue to get a lot of compliments on how beautiful our wedding photos are - they look like they could be in a magazine!

Lauren took our engagement photos in Spring of 2015 and we instantly loved them! Then, my husband and I got married in Brooklyn later that year. Lauren captured our day perfectly!
