    Amazingly reasonable fee and fantastic pictures and attitude.
    We live in California and had our Engagement pictures there but the Wedding was in Maryland. Lauren saved the day and FLEW ACROSS THE COUNTRY! It was great to be able to keep the continuity and Lauren had a great upbeat attitude and was super fun and nice.(I don't hear from many other Brides they ended up partying with their photog after the wedding :) ) The pictures were bright and beautiful and 'I' got a ton of compliments about how she really captured the day.

    Lauren did a fantastic job with our wedding photos. Our wedding was in Yosemite and she came up with some unique and great ideas to capture the scenery. Lauren's personality helped the wedding party feel more relaxed with our group and portrait photos.

    Lauren was exactly the kind of photographer I was looking for for my wedding. She was on time, professional and laid back in a good way! She was everywhere, but at the same time blended in with the guests! I've only seen a sneak peak of our photos, but so far they were amazing! I was a little nervous hiring a photographer without meeting them first, but Lauren stayed in contact with me right up until the day of the wedding!

    Lauren was amazing during the entire process. She was enthusiastic about an unconventional project, helped us turn it into a beautiful reality, and was incredibly efficient during the shooting and editing process. We are definitely hiring her again for our wedding next year. We cannot recommend her enough!

    Lauren is amazing! For our engagement shoot, she was incredibly flexible and receptive to our ideas about what we wanted to show about ourselves and our relationship, and offered brilliant suggestions to make it even better. She was a pleasure to work with, making us very comfortable in front of the camera. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her as a person, too, and were over the moon thrilled with the outcome--our engagement photos were absolutely gorgeous, and we've had continuous, ravishing compliments about how perfect and beautiful they are! We are very excited to be looking forward to having Lauren at our wedding too as we know we couldn't have its capturing in better hands.

    Lauren was amazing! I wasn't able to meet her before the wedding day, so I was a little nervous, but I couldn't have hoped for anyone better. She was personable and professional and took amazing picture. I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially for a wedding!

    Lauren is a true professional! She captured our day perfectly! Every time I turned around there she was not missing a beat! The final photos were edited and delivered super quick as well. We couldn't be happier and I'm pretty sure both of our Moms have already wall papered their houses with Lauren's work. Thank you Lauren!

If you want really great photos to create lasting memories from your event, you need to call Lauren. period.

    Lauren has the unique ability to catch everyone's good side, and I don't mean just their looks. Her photo booths at parties are always a hit. She always has a unique backdrop and fun props to bring out the joy in everyone. Her wedding photos are unique and beautiful. Lauren's creative approach to photography results in unique and incredible photos you will enjoy looking at time and tome again, O certainly enjoy the ones I have.

    We recently had Lauren take our engagement photos and couldn't be happier! She has a keen eye for tackling the moments/emotions and not stationing the typical "posed" photos. Can't wait to see the photos she'll take at our wedding!
  • Annette S. Aug 9, 2013
    After seeing some of Lauren's work I was amazed by her versatility, but especially her creativity with her subjects. She captured "magic" and "reality" all at the same time. We needed some product photography for our company and we have been thrilled with the results and the work ethic and integrity of Lauren Lindley. I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking for original quality photography.

    Lauren is an outstanding photographer. Whatever the setting, lighting, or task, she produces beautiful photos. She has helped my ski career and the non-profit I represent by producing images that resonate with people. She is quick and responsive also, so you can worry about the task at hand while she takes care of documenting it!
