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.
