Talk about EPIC wedding pictures! Snowboarding in our wedding attire was probably the coolest idea we have ever had! And a huge shoutout to the most BADASS/ EXTREME photographer on the planet! While taking our pictures a kid wasn’t paying attention and slammed right into her breaking her camera and practically breaking her face! But she was such a trooper after getting bandaged up she ran home to grab her other camera and returned to the mountain to finish taking our pictures! She truly went above and beyond!
I cannot sing enough praise for Lauren Lindley. Even beyond her beautiful photography and skill for capturing emotions and memories, her attitude, helpfulness, efficiency, and energy are unmatched. She goes above and beyond to make sure she gets the perfect shot. She even managed to wrangle over 50 family members within 20 minutes to get all our formal shots done in record speed. Lauren won’t just be your photographer, but she’ll also end up being your friend.
I absolutely LOVED working with Lauren. She was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. She had a list of recommended vendors that I found super helpful and I actually used quite a few. She was very responsive and timely via email. She truly made everything super easy!
Flash forward to our wedding day and she was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! She bounded into the condo like she had known me for years!! She was really fun and personable!! My mom and family instantly loved her!!! She didn’t hesitate when we wanted to do some extra photos or add ins and all of our pictures turned out AMAZING !!! She was super flexible with the photo booth too while I figured out if I was going to use it and I’m so glad I did!!!
Her website for picture download is super user friendly and has been great and easy to share with our family and friends. I loved everything about our experience with Lauren and will definitely request her services in the future with life events!!!!
I highly recommend Lauren!!!! Her skills are amazing and an added bonus she is super fun to have at your side all day!!!!!
Wedding planning was especially stressful for us as we had (at last) minute scrapped our plans of a large traditional wedding and chose to relocate to a smaller one in South Lake Tahoe. It was long and tedious sorting through all the vendors and ever more difficult since we do not live near Tahoe so all communication was via phone calls or email. I stumbled upon Lauren’s work by chance and honestly, it was the best thing that could’ve happened. Not only was she prompt and quick to respond to my emails but she really took the time to help me with any questions or concerns I might have had. There wasn’t a feeling of a canned response or the typical “you’re just another number” client experience.
Flash forward to the wedding day my groom and I chose to have a private first look experience. It was our first time meeting Lauren and it honestly felt like we had been friends for years! She made sure to make us feel comfortable, happy and truly made the moment more special than I think any other photographer would have done!
The over all day was an absolute blast in large parts to her. Everyone loved working with her and the pictures we just received back shows it! They are beyond STUNNING and I can’t wait to hang them in our home.
Lauren was hands down our best wedding investment. SHE IS A BOSS LADY. We chose a flexible package with a second-shooter–Lauren totally accommodated and gave prime insight and suggestions. We maintained great communication before the big day, and I always felt like I was in great hands. From the time she arrived to after the reception, she was on her A-game. She saved the day countless times–from working on a timeline that was wayyyy behind to last-minute helping me into my dress and calming me after a meltdown, to expertly organizing and handling my family during formal photos (they’re not the best listeners), and quickly getting the groom and I to a secret spot for magical pics before the ceremony. Even after the GOG tripped on and knocked over Lauren’s tripod/lighting set-up, Lauren was calm and collected, and didn’t skip a beat. We received a few sneak peeks in the days following our wedding that brought me to tears–she truly knows her craft. She was there for every important moment and I was worry-free the entire time because I deeply trust her eye and experience. I’m so proud of the moments Lauren captured and will treasure them always. Thank you a billion, Lauren!
Lauren was simply amazing! We are an easy going/simple couple and wanted our wedding and photography to reflect that. Lauren was flexible, very responsive, and fun! Without needing much information from us, Lauren showed up, and brought with her TONS of energy. She wasn’t afraid to get right in there and get some great shots during the ceremony. We both have big families, and Lauren was so organized, getting all of our formals done in a matter of minutes so our guests could go on to enjoy the reception. She even laid down in the sand to get the perfect photos of us walking on the beach. We found Lauren to be very reasonably priced, and we got more than we thought we would for our money. I would recommend her over and over, and I hope we get a chance to work with her again.
MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER KICKS ASS! (is that okay to say?) This review is long but worth it. When I first met Lauren, we connected immediately. I knew she was my girl. My husband and I have never been all that comfortable about posing for photos. It’s just awkward. We needed someone we felt comfortable around.
Fast forward to our wedding day. She was there on time, a big silly grin on her face and ready to go. Just seeing her, both calmed my nerves and lifted my spirits all at the same time. She had never been to our venue before (we flew her in the night before) and I imposed on her to help me find a perfect place for our first look. Boy did she! Lighting, background, everything was so perfect! And within 100 yards of our room. A spot I would never have noticed as an option.
We had a fantastic wedding day, photographs were a breeze, and we were ahead of schedule every step of the way. We were even able to attend most of our cocktail hour. But…. After the wedding, I started to feel some regret. (BTW this is something I never talked to Lauren about, but I’m sure she is reading this review) Like a lot of brides, I started to feel this massive letdown after the big day. For me, a lot of it centered around regret about photos. It kept me up at night. I think I might have had nightmares.
• I didn’t get enough pictures
• I didn’t communicate well enough with her
• I should have made a bigger list of the photos I wanted
• Did I need a second shooter?
• DID WE EVEN TAKE PHOTOS??????
We were on our honeymoon (YES, THAT QUICKLY!) and I received an email from Lauren saying our photos were ready. With shaky fingers, my husband and I clicked the button and dove into our album. Within minutes we were laughing, crying and reminiscing. Reliving our beautiful day. I don’t know where she was hiding all day, but she managed to get it all. And we don’t’ recall being asked to “pose” at all.
We have a beautiful story of our wedding day that unfolds, moment by moment, thanks to Lauren Lindley Photography.
