Update - I wanted to come back and update my review now that the wedding has officially taken place! Lauren and Mitchell exceeded my already high expectations on our wedding day. They were extremely upbeat and high-energy, while still fading in...
to the background. They managed to take all the staged photos we wanted, while still leaving plenty of time for us to just enjoy our wedding day and talk to guests. And when I got the sneak peek photos just two days after the wedding day... obsessed would be an understatement.
Everyone involved in the wedding complimented the organization, quality and personalities of Lauren and Mitchell. I am so glad I found them and that we were finally able to work together. They made our wedding day even more perfect. If you choose to hire them for your wedding, I can guarantee that you will not regret it!
Original Review -
Of all the many decisions that I had to make when planning my wedding, booking the right photographer was the most important to me by far. I looked at and spoke to many, many different photographers, and I couldn't speak more highly of Lauren and Mitchell.
I think their photos truly speak for themselves, so I don't need to convince you that they're talented. Thanks to COVID-19, I've had to postpone my wedding twice - now indefinitely as we decided to wait until next year to make sure we can keep everyone safe and healthy. Throughout all the cancellations and changes, Lauren has been an absolute dream to work with. She was the first (and only) one of my vendors to reach out back in March letting me know she was more than willing to be flexible if our plans changed, and she has continued to live up to that promise each and every time we've spoken. Instead of focusing on what was best for her, she has supported every decision we've made and worked to accommodate every change with such grace and kindness.
Now, with everything up in the air, I am searching for a new venue, a new makeup artist, a new caterer... But I know I will absolutely not be searching for a new photographer. I think a photographer for a wedding goes just beyond beautiful pictures - which you can see from their gallery that Lauren and Mitchell certainly take beautiful pictures. If you want someone who is going to go above and beyond, be there for you every step of the way, be truly supportive of your vision and your dreams, you must book Roots of the Rose Photography. Besides saying yes to my fiance, this is the best wedding decision I ever made. I can't wait until they are actually able to shoot my wedding one day soon!
