Don’t keep memories. Relive them.
Ooh, I do love a day of love!
But even as someone who works in the wedding industry, finding a wedding photographer for my own big day was a daunting and sometimes overwhelming process, so I want to do my best to make my little corner of the wedding photography interweb as easy as I can for you! So with that in mind, let’s get straight to the good stuff, nice and clear…
Here are 6 reasons why you should choose me as your wedding photographer:
I give you a wedding photography style that feels timeless.
I want you to have photos of your wedding day that won’t lose their beauty, sophistication or meaning down the line.
That’s why I edit my wedding photography in a style that really pops whilst making sure your grandkids won’t giggle at it in decades to come (we all remember when sepia was THE in-thing in the early noughties, right?).
I’ve put in lots of blood, sweat & tears (ok, mostly tears) to develop my own style that I have a lot of love for, rather than following quick-to-disappear trends (that being said, yes I am very much up for some motion-blurred photos!).
My Stealth Mode is my superpower.
You’ll barely notice I’m there, and yet I am somehow everywhere.
This means I can capture authentic shots without disrupting the moment or making people feel conscious that they’re on-camera.
Wonderful as it is, the photography you get from your wedding will always be secondary to your feelings on the big day itself, so my job is to immortalise those memories, not manipulate them.
I work to reduce your wedding-planning stress.
Other than hiring me as your wedding photographer being a big TICK off your planning list, I know how stressful putting together such a big event can be, so I do whatever I can to keep things as simple as possible.
Though you can contact me as little or often as you like leading up to your wedding, it’s our chilled pre-wedding video call (about a month before your date) that gives you an easy opportunity to tell me all about your big day and what really matters to you both. I can then go away and hash out a fool-proof plan for my when, where & how, so that I can capture everything that’s important and you can enjoy your wedding day without having to worry about whether I know what’s going on!
I’m also here for planning advice whenever you need it; needless to say, I’ve seen a lot of weddings in my 32 years!
And just because I’m a balanced person, I might not be an excellent fit if….
- You have a love for strictly traditional, fully-posed shots and classic wedding portraits looking directly at the camera
- Highly-technical lighting and setups get you all excited – I prefer natural light and a bit of flash here or there to capture the most candid of moments
- You are looking for a wedding photographer to steal the show – I’ll gleefully join in with the banter and might even have a little wiggle, but I’ll let you lead the congo line!
When you book me as your wedding photographer, you’re getting more than just camera clicks! I come with a full arsenal of wedding know-how & photography expertise, and the wedding itself is just the tip of the iceberg. A typical full-day wedding includes:
- 8 hours of foreseeing great moments & getting them captured (alongside getting you to the right place on time and a little bit of herding distant relatives into the correct group shot)
- 35-40 hours of culling, editing + light retouching
- 2-3 hours of consultations, admin & shot planning/scouting locations
- 2 hours of travel
- 30 mins of happy-dancing when my couple says they love their wedding photos!
MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PRICING
No one likes a mystery. My wedding package prices start at £849, and you can see the level of quality you can expect in your gallery by scrolling down to my wedding photography portfolio.
Every couple has a unique idea of how their wedding should be, so I’m happy to flex my photography packages to suit you and your day, and I offer add-ons if you want to customise your package with a little extra spice.
I’m not running a wedding photography conveyor belt; I offer coverage of a limited number of weddings per year, and once these slots are filled up I hold myself to not taking on more.
This is because wedding photography takes a huge amount of work behind the scenes (I refer you back to the list on the left!), and I want to know I’m giving each of my lovely couples the time and energy you deserve for your gallery to truly represent the happiness of your big day. Catch me while you can!
If you are looking for the wedding photographer for your special day, you can stop looking and forget about the ones you might have already considered.
We consider ourselves very lucky to have found Lauren, her friendly professionalism shone through, she organised the group and formal shots perfectly while also capturing some outstanding candid moments throughout the day.
The resulting images are superb and she managed to capture the joyful atmosphere of our very special day perfectly. We cannot recommend her highly enough.Diana & SteveWedding at Odo’s Barn, KentLauren is an incredible photographer who beautifully captured our wedding day.
From booking all the way through to receiving the photos, we had an amazing experience working with Lauren and the photographs are even more beautiful than we could have imagined.
We had pretty much a storm on our wedding day, torrential rain, the works but every single photograph is just perfect, moody, romantic, just stunning.
I just wish we could do it all over again and have Lauren there!Hannah & ChrisWedding in Potter Heigham, NorfolkLauren is simply amazing to work with, she needs very little direction, she’s always there capturing the magic however you don’t really notice her (stealth mode). The output is not only fast but incredibly professional in every way, from the point of proposal to downloading the final images from the gallery.
We can’t recommend Lauren enough and quite honestly if you can manage to book her for your special event, consider yourselves lucky. I have never been so emotional, reliving the moments as I have been when looking back at our wedding gallery.
Lauren thank you for being a true artist and keep doing you.Sarah & ChrisWedding at Pennyhill Park, Surrey
