Full Description
When you meet me I’m hoping the vibe you feel is how down to earth, fun-loving and friendly I am. I love my role as an artist and photographer and if you are looking for a relaxed personality who easily chats to guests while you are in-front of the camera then I could be the photographer for you. Apart from the photography aspect of your wedding it is really important to me to get to know both of you and vice-versa as this enables me to personalise your photography experience. Your wedding day should not be controlled, but guided which is why my non-obtrusive approach fits perfectly into the day’s proceedings. I have also worked with many wedding suppliers and venues throughout Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey building trust and collaboration making sure your day goes to plan. After your wedding, usually while you are on honeymoon, I will head back to the studio and start hand retouching images from your day. My style of wedding photography is about story-telling through images I capture. Some call it documentary wedding photography or reportage. I know, I just love to capture real emotion, natural fun and have a good time doing it – from the bridal preparations to the first dance and all the bits in-between! I’ve worked hard to produce an experience for my couples that isn’t just about picking up a camera. It is also about superior customer service and when you book with me there will be some surprises and delights along your journey that I can’t mention here! Like what you see? It would be great to hear from you and arrange a complimentary meeting.

She is so easy going....
When looking for your wedding photographer trust your gut. As soon as I stumbled across Lauren's page I knew she would be the one to capture our special day. Meeting Lauren only confirmed this. She is so easy going and she was offering exactly what we were looking for. The pre wedding shoot was something both my Husband and I felt apprehensive about, but Lauren put us at ease and we had so much fun. The images that we received just a few days later were just unreal and we treasure them just as much as our actual wedding day photos. It was great to have the opportunity to get comfortable with the camera before the big day. On the day of the wedding Lauren and her 2nd shooter arrived early and were just amazing from the get go. They both had such a calm and professional manner.. it felt like 2 extra friends in the room. I can't express enough how fantastic Lauren was throughout the day - it was the hottest bank holiday on record but that did not deter her from standing in the blazing sun to get the perfect shots. Lauren's photography style is so timeless; a style that will never look dated in your living room. Since receiving our photos we have looked through them every day. We are over the moon with images and moments that were captured. We really couldn't have asked anything more from her; she's a true talent. Thank you so much Lauren! We can't wait to have a reason to work with you again!

Biggest recommendation of all of our suppliers
We can't thank Lauren enough for the photos of our wedding day!! Choosing a photographer was the hardest part for us.. how do you know if a photographer is any good or not?? We hate our pictures being taken which also didn't help. After several wedding fayre's we came across a lot of (pushy) photographers, we would get bombarded with emails and offers! After hunting the internet we came across Lauren and as soon as we met her we knew she was the one :-) Our day was superb, Lauren was with me from the start with an additional photographer with my husband...they captured so much of our day it was amazing! Lauren accommodated our picture requests just as we accommodated the thistle walk in a wedding dress LoL!! We had Lauren right up until our last dance and she even waited to grab a few pics of me in my evening dress.... So a massive 5***** from us and the biggest recommendation of all of our suppliers, you were truly amazing Lauren xx

...she was so professional and a brilliant support
Lauren was absolutely amazing for our wedding. Right from the start she was so helpful and kind. We were left suddenly without a photographer 6 weeks before our wedding and Lauren kindly offered to help us on our day even though she was already crazily busy. I am so pleased it all happened that way because Lauren was fantastic. Throughout everything she was so professional and a brilliant support especially on the day organising everyone and making sure our day was perfect. Lauren made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and listened to all of our ideas to make sure we had the perfect photographs to remember our special day. Thank you so much again Lauren we couldn’t have done it without you!! Xxxx

We couldn’t have asked for anyone better....
Lauren is an amazing person as well as an amazing photographer. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to photograph our wedding day. She made everyone feel relaxed and had a laugh with our guests. She made sure she called close family members by their names which added that extra special personal touch too. Everyone we have spoken to since has commented how great Lauren was throughout the day. Although Josh and I aren’t always comfortable having our photo taken Lauren was able to guide us into getting the most natural photos which is exactly what she is best at and just what we wanted. We can’t thank you enough and would definitely recommend and use you in the future for any of our photo needs!

he is professional, calm, funny, and easy-going.
Finding a photographer wasn't easy. We had an appointment with our venue's suggested supplier and they were lovely, but something wasn't quite right. That is why I turned to Google and did a quick search for wedding photographers in Bracknell. Lauren's page was the first one that popped up and I really liked what I saw. I sent her an email and she replied immediately. She came round to our house for a cup of tea and a chat and within minutes it felt like we'd known each other for years. The prices of the different packages she offered were also very reasonable so the decision to go with her was very easily made. It is not unreasonable to say that I was a hands-on bride so Lauren received a lot of emails and she always responded very quickly and was always able to put me at ease. Nik and I were both a bit nervous about our engagement shoot as neither of us like our photo being taken but we had the best time! The photos are absolutely stunning. It was great that we used our wedding venue as our location so we could already decide which areas to use on our wedding day. Lauren was our rock on our wedding day. She arrived, together with Emma, first thing and they both just blended in. Nothing was too much for either of them and they were so relaxed and accommodating. We really had a lovely time going out for pictures with both of them! Having Emma there too really helped as it was a church wedding so pictures were taken from both angles. We received so many compliments from our guests and venue that our photographers were absolutely amazing and we couldn't agree more! We were very pleasantly surprised when the photos arrived so quickly and the result is absolutely wonderful! Nik and I couldn't recommend Lauren highly enough. She is professional, calm, funny, and easy-going. She is everything you need and more! Thank you SO much for everything, Lauren! We can't wait to see the album! Nik and Marijke

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Contemporary, Elegant, Fun, Relaxed, Emotional

What about your business are you most proud of?

My images - at every wedding I try and push myself to be more creative and to capture better images then the last time I pressed my shutter button.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Choose a photographer for their personality - someone you can see as being a friend as well as their amazing images :)

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Good question! I love the different ways rings are presented during the wedding ceremony. I've seen beautiful hand-crafted boxed, owls flying down the aisle to the cutest kids walking down with the biggest smile!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Let's meet.... smile.... have fun - then I'll explain the process!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas!....and not to be worried about having photos taken in the rain - with umbrellas they will look awesome.

Describe how you got into photography.

My friend asked me to capture her black and white stills for her wedding - (yes... black and white film!) years ago and was so impressed, she pushed me into setting up a website and creating a portfolio.....I fell in love with wedding photography, meeting couples, capturing the day and the excitement of retouching the photos that the rest is now history.....[insert BIG smile here!]
