Do you want to read about a phenomenal photographer? Then let me tell you about Lauren von Eckartsberg Photography. From the start, Lauren made herself available and walked through my surprise engagement photos plan with me. I was admittedly somewhat neurotic when it came to timing, back story to get my fiancée, Christy, to the right spot, and finding backup locations as I wanted to propose outside. Lauren never once complained about my barrage of questions and requests for her opinion. Not only that, she suggested a perfect backup location in case of rain. Certain people have an uncanny sense of what it takes for the best possible finished product, and Lauren is one of those people.
On the day of the proposal, Lauren was at the spot far before I got there in order to set up and find the best locations to shoot. Not only that, Lauren was so well disguised that when I first saw her I wasn't sure it was her. I imagined it might be another tourist as she had the wherewithal to take some photos of the other people who were at the location in Central Park. Lauren also helped to clear the people from the area so I could have an intimate moment in one of the world's most visited parks as she kindly asked people to clear the area for a few minutes before Christy and I arrived. It worked like a charm!
Now we come to the picture quality. It blew me away! Lauren's photos PERFECTLY captured the wide range of emotion of the moment. From Christy's surprise when she turned to see me on one knee to the pure joy that we both shared as it started to sink in. My big surprise of the day was to have my Christy's family watch from across Wagner Cove (the proposal location in Central Park) and then come surprise her afterwards. Lauren gladly took Christy's mom's contact information and helped them find the location and to locate the perfect spot to witness the event. Lauren also took amazing pictures of the family surprising Christy. The happiness experienced by all is undeniable in Lauren's photos and we'll be able to look back at them and cherish the moment for the rest of our lives.
After reviewing the photos we decided looking at other photographers for the wedding was a complete waste of time, and asked Lauren if she would be our wedding photographer. She graciously accepted and we can't wait to work with her again!
Take it from a man with strong opinions, Lauren von Eckartsberg is a diamond in the rough when it comes to photographers for hire. If you want someone who goes the extra mile and delivers an unbelievable product, just stop what you're doing and contact Lauren. I guarantee you won't regret it!
