Lauren and Jared were 100% the best decision we made for our wedding. My husband and I were were a little nervous about being awkward in the pictures and video but after the engagement shoot all of our fears were completely gone! The Bowsers are so easy to be around and great at... Read More making you feel comfortable and natural. These are not your standard posed wedding pictures/ videos. They are the best at capturing who you are as an unique couple and the personalities of your guests! Your wedding pictures will not look like anyone else's! They are truly artists and most importantly, their work is BREATHTAKING. I have gotten countless complements! Additionally, they are incredibly professional and got our pictures and video back to us so quickly! I can't even write enough good things! I would definitely recommend doing both the photography and videography with We are the Bowsers!

I stumbled upon The Bowsers after tirelessly searching for photographers on the knot who really embodied the style my husband and I wanted. Since receiving our video, I've watched it over and over. Jared did an amazing job. When we received the link to our our photos, I felt... Read More like I was re-living the best day of my life. Lauren truly captured every moment. Then, our package arrived in the mail which included a lovely thank you card, beautifully edited photos, and an engraved wooden box with our new family name which housed our USB.

I can't even begin to tell you how great these two are. They did both our photography and videography and we are beyond thrilled with the finished product.

Yesterday Ryan and I celebrated 6 months married together and the thing we both come back to are memories. If I have any advice to give to people who are in the midst of wedding prep is to invest in your memories. We Are The Bowsers will help you remember that day exactly as it... Read More was. These are the most genuine pictures I have ever seen of my myself and Ryan, my family and my friends. It is impossible to experience the entirety of the wedding within the night, but Lauren and Jared beautifully fill in the gaps for you. I can still put myself there when I watch the video and look at the pictures. These are what our children and grandchildren will look at one day and I can't thank them enough for that. Beyond being beautifully done, this team was organized, flexible, and very easy to talk too. I believe Ryan and I were talking about our dog most of the time we were taking pictures. Lauren answered our emails almost immediately and within a business day at the latest and we received our pictures promptly. I have recommended this duo to multiple friends who are planning currently and I would continue to do so.

We got married in December and had Jared do the videography at our wedding. I would recommend them 100 fold. Lauren was so easy to communicate with, she was extremely quick to respond, and there wasn't so much as a hiccup along the way. If I didn't have my cousin doing my... Read More photography, I would have hired Lauren in a heart beat. I've seen her photos, and I love her style, she seems to capture every moment perfectly. Everything from the booking, to the payment, to the cute little personalized box with a flash drive of your special day was perfect and simple. The video was absolutely amazing. Jared has a serious gift and our video has been shared and watched by what seems like the whole world on facebook! People keep stopping me that barely know me saying that it made them cry! Not to mention, everything was extremely affordable. "We Are The Bowsers" is hands down the easiest decision you will make for your wedding. They are professional, talented, and all around fantastic!!

First off, Lauren did my fiance and I's engagement shoot in Jacksonville and it was a BLAST. We had never visited Jacksonville before but loved the style and vibe we got from We Are the Bowsers and knew we HAD to work with them. We threw the ball in their court about where the... Read More best setting would be since we really knew nothing of the area and ended up at Dutton Island Preserve, which was just perfect. We ended up hiking through the woods to find the best lighting/most unique spots. The best thing about working with Lauren and We Are the Bowsers, in general, was that they truly wanted to get the absolute perfect memories and photos- we weren't constantly checking the time or how long we had left in the session. We shot until she felt that we had the perfect photos. Additionally, she let the photos happen naturally... she would give us some direction but not enough to have the photos looked posed. We felt super awk having someone photo us as we smooched but Lauren made it such a fun atmosphere that it felt like an old bud was behind the lens, laughing with us. Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with and I hope our paths will cross again either as buds or at our 60th wedding anniversary. You won't regret hiring them. So just do it.

Read More they make you feel and how Jared can capture the most amazing video without you even noticing he's filming. After we received our engagement photos and short video I was hooked!

In that moment I saw how much Lauren truly cared for her clients, how much she wanted them to be happy, and her willingness to work with them to give them just what they wanted. That meant so much to me! Upon receiving our sweet, personalized wedding package with our photos and video I was left speechless! They truly captured our day perfectly.

I cannot say enough good things about Lauren--she is AMAZING! Planning a destination wedding was confusing enough, but from the moment I emailed her, she made things easy, fun, and so exciting. It was her raw talent, genuinely beautiful artistic style, and stunning photographs... Read More that initially drew me to email Lauren one night. She responded right away, answered all my questions, and was a tremendous resource throughout the whole wedding process. On my wedding day (the first day we met), she instantly made me feel comfortable and at ease.

She scouted out a bunch of sights in advance for us to go to, which was perfect since I was unfamiliar with the area. I actually can't imagine what my wedding would've been like without her! When I saw the final pictures for the first time, I was speechless. They were better than I ever even dreamed! And her turn around time was amazing. I'm so glad to have emailed Lauren that one night, and am so lucky to have had the chance to work with her. I will treasure these photos for the rest of my life! I can't recommend Lauren more--she is one of a kind. Thank you!!!!
