Hello Lovers - I'm Lauren Rae!
I chase the sun and live for the messy, raw, and in-between moments. I strive to artfully tell your story through photographs. I want to give you gorgeous photos but an incredible experience!
My purpose is to create lasting memories for you that encapsulate the feelings and memories you had on your big day. I want to get to know you, what you love about each other, what is important in your relationship so I can capture YOUR love that much better. I want to show up to your wedding as more than a vendor, I want to become a friend and someone you feel comfortable being you with.
Let's chat, coffee's on me!
My experience with Lauren has been nothing but spectacular. Let’s start with day one as she secretly filmed my engagement waiting patiently behind a concrete barrier at Bradford Beach so I wouldn’t catch a glimpse of her. Months later, we asked if she would film our engagement photos, and of course she agreed to open up her schedule to make our day and time work. Our idea of engagement photos would involve her riding in my brother-in-law's Bronco held on tight by my best friend so she wouldn’t fall out only to get the perfect picture of me and my fiance riding on a Harley chopper following the Bronco. Of course she got the best photo of us cruising hands up across the Hoan Bridge.
Following these two experiences with Lauren, we knew we would want her to capture our wedding day. Lauren drove to our destination the night before to take photos of the rehearsal dinner as well as woke up early to take pictures of both parties getting ready. She captured our “first look” and the many special moments to follow. The night ended with my husband and I riding with a caravan of motorcycles and vintage cars. Lauren was on the backseat of a chopper with no hands just to get the perfect picture of us.
Words cannot describe how amazing Lauren is at her job and I am so lucky she worked with us in capturing these beautiful moments of our lives.
Lauren is THE BEST, hands down you could not make a better choice in selecting her to capture all of the best shots for your big day, or any life event in general. I told her my vision and she made all of the pictures in my head come to life. She has a gift to really put you at ease through her witty one liners and effortless charm to capture the most natural and authentic shots from making you laugh so much. She knows how to work a crowd so you’re not left standing there in a group all awkward and left with sub par photos, she has a very apparent eye for detail which is such an important quality. I could go on forever about how wonderful Lauren is, she truly captured the full magic of our day between the venue, my husband and I and all of our most cherished people in attendance and I am forever grateful!!!
