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 was stunned at the presentation and will be forever grateful for their work!

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. Taking professional photos can be really awkward, but they made us feel so comfortable. I know they do a ton of weddings... Read More but they have a way of making your wedding day feel special, unique and exciting. We just love these two and would recommend them to everybody.

If I could give Jared & Lauren more than 5 stars, I would. From the day I began corresponding with them, I knew they were the perfect duo to document our wedding day. Their attention to detail, professionalism, friendship, and just overwhelming desire to go above and beyond for... Read More their clients is so evident in their work. The memories we've been able to preserve forever are thanks to them, and I could not be more amazed and thankful for their talent! Even in you aren't in the Jacksonville area (they love to travel A LOT ;) ) I highly recommend reaching out to them. I can't say enough how much we love We Are The Bowsers!

I would almost compare the excitement of the wait for our engagement photos and video to the wait to post this review!! My fiancé and I had such an INCREDIBLE time with We Are The Bowsers! I was nervous they would think we were awkward or had no idea what we were doing, and that... Read More changed immediately after meeting Lauren and Jared for the first time. Lauren gives you the lo-down on how the session is going to go and plays music alongside her which instantly puts you in the photoshoot mood! If I felt that I was about to freeze up, she sensed it and immediately helped us to form a new, natural pose. Jared was so quiet the whole time while filming, I forgot he was there half the time! Now that I’m seeing the final product, I still can’t formulate words for how beautiful everything is! We are unfortunately not able to work together for our wedding, but if you are lucky enough to catch an available date with them for your engagement session or your wedding... PLEASE DO NOT PASS THAT UP!!!

Jared + Lauren of We Are The Bowsers are amazing!! I worked with Lauren to organize and solidify all of our pre-wedding information and billing. She is organized and so quick to respond. Jared was the videographer for our wedding and he was extremely professional yet, warm and... Read More made us and everyone feel SO comfortable with him. Our wedding video turned out better than I could have ever hoped and dreamed and I know we will cherish it for a lifetime. Jared captured the small and large details of the day and for that I will forever be grateful. I cannot recommend We are the Bowsers enough!!! 10/10

Looking back at our wedding photos, I can't really understand how Lauren did it. I only remember seeing her during the group photos after the ceremony, but somehow she captured every key moment of the day. The pictures are stunning, and they were turned around exceedingly... Read More quickly. We even got a few teasers before Christmas that we could share with our family. Olivia and I couldn't be happier with the photographs. We now have beautiful images of our friends and family and it's a collection we will treasure forever.

If you want your wedding to be captured JUST the way you remember it (if not better), you must hire We Are The Bowsers. Not only were Lauren and Jared our photographer and videographer, but by the end of working with them they became our dear friends. Their attention to detail,... Read More apt for being in the right place at the right time and their inventiveness in creating the perfect shot were visible throughout all of our pictures and video. I wish they could capture all of our special moments for the rest of our lives... well they probably will because we would hire them again and again.

I honestly cannot say how much we LOVED Lauren & Jared enough. From the moment we first exchanged emails, to our first in-person meeting a month before the wedding, to the Big Day and all the weeks that followed, this duo was AMAZING. Scott & I went back & forth on whether to... Read More have a videographer or not & changed our minds 2-3x about how long we wanted/needed the photographer on the wedding day. Lauren was immensely helpful in answering all our questions! She's such a pro, she was able to walk us through everything and make sure we fully understood our contract & the services they were going to be providing. We were so lucky to find We are the Bowers through my best friend (the MOH!). She went to a wedding YEARS ago and remembered how amazing the photographer (Lauren!) was at the wedding & how beautiful all the pictures turned out that she made sure to make a note of her name for whenever I was planning my wedding. Now try to tell me that's not fate ;) I couldn't be more thankful for the recommendation- as soon as we starting communicating with them, we never looked for another review or requested a second quote. Lauren & Jared were super nice and everyone at the wedding thought they were guests because they fit in so well! With every picture I post, I get a ton of compliments because it's obvious their work is impeccable. And the VIDEO! Still gives Scott & I all the feels (even for the 1304th time). The best team in Florida (and the world bc THEY TRAVEL!) hands down.

Selecting a photo/video team was my #1 priority in planning my wedding. It came before the dress, the deejay, the decor, the flowers. And the level of attention and flexibility that Lauren & Jared provided to us for our engagement photos, our wedding photos, and our video is... Read More unparalleled. They have an amazing, cohesive style - artistic, glamorous, natural, and real. I have had so many people comment or send me messages complimenting our wedding photos/film - even strangers! I feel like they are so competitively priced and the fact that they will travel for photos... it's a no-brainer to hire them, regardless of where you're located. During our wedding weekend, Lauren & Jared were organized, efficient, and made us feel SO at ease. They also achieved natural and easy shots of our friends/family - instead of stiff, posed photos. They captured every detail - even things I didn't notice as a bride like aspects of the decor that I was too frazzled to appreciate! Feel free to look up our hashtag #Sailubanks and see for yourself. The best part came after the wedding, though. We got our pictures and video quickly in easy-to-share formats. But beyond that- they also sent us amazing, personalized gifts after our wedding that we keep on our coffee table, like high-quality prints in a beautiful display box. From start to finish, every interaction with their team has been so professional and personalized and beautiful. I can't wait until I find an opportunity to employ We Are The Bowsers again for photos.

Hiring Lauren and Jared might be the single best decision I made for our wedding. As soon as I discovered We are the Bowsers (via The Knot) their point of view and shooting style resonated with me. I knew I had to have them! It means the world to me to have these precious... Read More memories captured in photographs and on film so my children and children's children can enjoy them too! My husband and I can't help but stare at them over and over. The wedding is over but these photos and the feelings we get from looking at them last forever. ❤️ As a photographer and digital media strategist myself, photography was one of those things I decided I would not be willing to sacrifice for budget's sake. This husband and wife duo are easily two of the best photographers in Northeast Florida. We are forever grateful that they were there to tell our story on our best day ever.

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.
